The daughter of former Vice President Al Gore and 22 other environmentalists were arrested Wednesday during a protest of a Boston pipeline.

Karenna Gore was  apparently part of an environmentalist protest which attempted to block construction of a pipeline by lying in a trench. She faces charges of disturbing the peace, trespassing and resisting arrest, and is set to be called before a court Friday.

Karenna was part of the group “Resist the Pipeline”, who have compared building the pipeline to a digging mass grave. Karenna has already scheduled an interview about her arrest with the far left new-site Democracy Now.

Police officers told the protesters they would be subject to arrest if they entered the construction site.

“We don’t want to arrest anybody. We’re just looking out for their safety and the safety of the workers,” Rachel McGuir, a Boston Police officer, told The Boston Globe. “We want them to know that we are here for them so they can demonstrate in a safe manner.”

Karenna Gore is the director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, which is affiliated with Columbia University.

Al Gore had three daughters, including Karenna, and a son with his former wife Tipper. The couple divorced in June of 2010.
