In December 2008, Tim DeChristopher disrupted an oil and gas auction to allay further climate change. By registering as a bidder, Tim drove up prices on many parcels and eventually won over a million dollars worth of oil leases before federal agents removed him from the room. He faces 10 years in prison. Tim’s trial will be held in downtown Salt Lake City on February 28th, and we are organizing many opportunities for those who wish to defend a livable future to do so on a variety of levels. The Countdown to Uprising Empowerment Summit begins on February 25th and will include interactive workshops, concerts, art, demonstrations, speakers, wild street theater, nonviolent direct action trainings, and more. If you have any more ideas for creative actions, workshops, speakers, street theater or stunts, contact us at email@example.com and we’ll be in touch.
For those who can’t make it to Salt Lake City, there will also be solidarity actions held across the country.

This kind of trial is nothing but intimidation– and the best answers to intimidation are joy and resolve. That’s what we’ll need in Utah.
