http://timdechristopher.org Excerpt from Tim DeChristopher's January 16, 2016 talk "The Power of Civil Disobedience: Awakening Our Spirits to the Challenge of the Climate Crisis" delivered following the historic #Delta5 climate trial verdict.
Tim DeChristopher: Founder, Climate Disobedience Center. Tim DeChristopher, posing as Bidder 70, disrupted an illegitimate Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction in December of 2008, by outbidding oil companies for parcels around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. His actions and 21 month imprisonment earned him a national and international media presence, which he has used as a platform to spread the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for bold, confrontational action in order to create a just and healthy world. Tim used his prosecution as an opportunity to do organize the climate justice organization Peaceful Uprising in Salt Lake City, and most recently founded the Climate Disobedience Center. He continues the work to defend a livable future.
