Shailene Woodley is standing her ground. The Fault in Our Stars actress posted to Instagram just one day after being arrested for criminal trespassing while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in Bismarck, North Dakota, on Monday, October 10.

“One day, baby, we'll sing our poetry. the words dripping from our tongues wet with ripened patience. and the lyrics, the sweet fruits born from the seeds our aging hands are now sowing. #alwaysinallways #heartforward #uptous #NoDAPL #protectcleanwater #iamonyourside,” she wrote alongside a photo of three people canoeing on Tuesday, October 11.

The actress, 24, was released from jail Monday.

"Shailene Woodley has been released from the Morton County Jail in North Dakota," her rep told Us in a statement on Tuesday. "She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline." 

As previously reported, Woodley’s arrest was caught on camera via her Facebook livestream.

"I don't know if you guys just heard me, but I was walking back to my RV, which is right there, so that we can go back to camp peacefully, and [the police] grabbed me by my jacket and said that I was not allowed to continue. And they had giant guns and batons and zip ties, and they're not letting me go,” Woodley could be heard saying in the video, which caught the attention of more than 2 million viewers. “All right, I'm being arrested because I was trespassing like everyone," she said before expressing that she felt she was the only one being arrested because she's “well known.”

The Morton County Sheriff's Department told Us that Woodley, however, was among 27 people arrested "for the same infraction" at the protest Monday.
