Keystone XL Pipeline protesters arrested in Cherokee County

Posted: Updated:

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.
