Two New York journalists were arrested as they tried to leave the site of the Tar Sands Blockade, an on-going encampment in Texas where activists have occupied tree tops in the path of the southern branch of the Keystone XL pipeline to block construction. Ron Seifert is a spokesperson for the Blockade. Speaking with WBAI’s Andrea Sears Seifert says Elizabeth Arce and Lorenzo Serna were arrested last night after spending a week documenting the protest from the platforms and catwalks up in the trees.
