Former University of Virginia professor and civil rights leader Julian Bond was arrested Wednesday outside the White House.

Bond was with a group of prominent activists including actress Daryl Hannah and former Congressman Robert Kennedy Jr. They were protesting to send a message to President Obama. The group wants the president to block the Keystone XL pipeline project, which would carry oil from Canada to Texas.

Many business and labor groups say the pipeline would create jobs and foster energy independence.
