Two women are in custody after cementing themselves at the site of the Keystone XL Pipeline location near Holdenville. The women are with the Tar Sands Resistance group.

When workers arrived at the construction site, they found the women stuck in concrete at the construction entrance. According to Tar Sands Resistance, jack and sledge hammers were used to free the women and they were taken to the Hughes County Jail at Holdenville.

As KWGS reported this morning, the TransCanada  company, owner of the pipeline,  has gone to court seeking to stop the protests at the site.
