At least 10 Keystone XL Pipeline protesters are arrested this afternoon in Cherokee County.
The protest group sat in trees and chained themselves to equipment in an area east of Alto - where construction is underway to lay the pipeline.
The group has been in opposition since talks of the pipeline began four years ago - and say they must go against the law to have their voices heard.
One of the women who sat in a tree and is now behind bars is a student at SFA.
The protesters come from around the country, but most of them are from Texas.
