News & Action
We’re spreading this action in support of climate justice and Tim DeChristopher, who will be sentenced on July 26 after being found guilty of one count of violating the Federal Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Act, and one count of False Statement March 3rd. On Democracy Now! Tim DeChristopher talks about why and how he protested a controversial land auction where the Bureau of Land Management was auctioning off thousands of acres of land in Utah to oil & gas companies. He participated in the auction and “won” $2.7 million in oil & gas leases in a brave creative nonviolent act to protect land from destructive oil and gas extraction. He is now facing 10 years in federal prison.
I [know] that Tim sees the climate crisis as the most urgent and universal issue of our era, and recognizes the need for more confrontational actions--the kind that requires real sacrifice. That [is] enough for me to stand with Tim, and commit to fighting the industry and politics that continue to forfeit our living world and value profits over people.
Check out this video of Tim speaking after his verdict for some inspiration and then get busy on the actions listed below.
