Daryl Hannah Uprooted & Arrested

Actress of Kill Bill 2 was literally up a tree, trying to prevent loss of urban garden.

It's always sad to see a beautiful and well-taken care of garden to be replaced by some lifeless cold metals. As the CNN reported, "South Central Farm, a community garden* in Los Angeles had about 350 people grew produced and flowers on the 14 acres of privately owned land, in an inner-city area surrounded by warehouses and railroad tracks. The garden has been there for more than a decade, but the landowner, Ralph Horowitz, now wants to replace it with a warehouse." - CNN.com

Daryl Hannah and at least 39 others were arrested and failed to prevent the garden being wiped out. The garden was finally cleared.

Not sure what to say, in fact nothing much to say, but personally I feel preserving nature shouldn't always be compromised or axed off for modernation.

I wish people could be more green-minded than money-minded, especially since there is great imbalance at the moment.

* Community gardens transform empty lots into green, living spaces. They are collaborative projects created by members of the community; residents share in both the maintenance and rewards of the garden. There are an estimated 10,000 community gardens within U.S. cities. - mindspring.com
