A daughter of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested on Wednesday, along with 22 other people, while protesting the construction of a natural gas pipeline in Massachusetts.
The arrests happened at Spectra Energy’s West Roxbury Lateral pipeline, near Boston.
Karenna Gore laid down inside a trench dug for the pipeline and refused to move. Firefighters eventually removed her and other protesters from the trenches.
Noted climate change activist Tim DeChristopher said at the protest site, “We can no longer pretend like what Spectra is doing here in West Roxbury is anything other than digging a mass grave.”
