Daryl Hannah Plucked From L.A. Tree

Daryl Hannah was arrested yesterday for protesting the destruction of a 14-acre community farm in Los Angeles.

The activist-actress sat in a walnut tree for more than two weeks to prevent the lot’s owner from building on the site. Almost 40 others, some of whom had chained themselves to concrete-filled barrels, were also arrested.

According to Hannah: “…South Central farm…is the largest urban farm in the nation and provides food for hundreds of families. The subsistence farmers are from one of the poorest communities. This farm should be a model for sustainable urban agriculture. It needs to be replicated, not eradicated.”

Hannah learned about the farm from Julia “Butterfly” Hill, who sat in a California redwood for more than two years to prevent logging. Hannah shot the inner-city farm, where close to 400 people were growing produce and flowers, for her website.

Unfortunately, despite Hannah’s and the other activists’ best efforts, the land was finally bulldozed. But the fight continues: The group is taking the owner to court next month to challenge his property rights. Let’s hope they win this round!
