Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy reports that Sean Avery was coming to Washington D.C. today to get arrested protesting an oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S but organizers are now saying he will not be able to attend…

“It looks like he’s not going to get arrested and add something to his record,” said Jamie Henn, spokesman for sit-in organizer Tar Sands Action.

If constructed, the Keystone XL pipeline would transport oil 1,980 miles from Hardisty, Alberta to Arthur, Texas. The U.S. State Department supports the project; environmentalists oppose it, citing previous spills in an existing pipeline from Alberta to Illinois.

Avery is part of that opposition and has been tweeting links to blogs and videos that contest the pipeline and using his website to urge action against its approval by the Obama administration.

Protests have been ongoing at the White House, including a sit-in on Tuesday that saw actress Daryl Hannah arrested. Through Thursday, 843 people had been arrested.
