What’s June 23rd? Solidarity Day with Tim DeChristopher.

Love our Earth? Enjoy the great outdoors? Want a sustainable future for everyone? Then join Peaceful Uprising, myself and others to share solidarity with Tim DeChrisptohper AKA Bidder 70, on June 23, 2011.  Peaceful Uprising currently has 39 events scheduled where folks are planning on going to their federal courthouse to display an orange solidarity banner and taking photos of it.  I realize not everyone has the opportunity to engage in this visual show of solidarity for DeChristopher who faces imprisonment for taking action to save public lands during an illegal land auction. What did he do? He bid on the lands and then made arrangements to purchase them to save them from illegal gas and oil development.  While Tim faces imprisonment for his actions the people who arranged the illegal land auction face NO accountability for the illegal auction.  DeChristpoher’s motive for his actions was not allowed to be part of his defence.  Now isn’t that odd—the legal system doesn’t care why Tim DeChristopher picked up an auction paddle and became Bidder 70.  But the system is apparently quite angry that he did anything to foil an illegal auction that oil and gas companies would have benefitted from.  Do we smell fracking here? Hmm? Surely not!  The legal system is so ticked off it has delayed sentencing DeChrisptopher yet again! Apparently it got wind of the planned solidarity rally in Utah and decided to keep things “quiet” in order to not attract media coverage. Well, I seriously doubt there will be much media coverage on June 23. Hey, the mainstream press IGNORED the protests in Wisconsin for as long as possible. It knew of and ignored the War Protests in front of the White House where 144 people were arrested.  Corporate media wants no part of people speaking truth to power as DeChristopher has done. So, it’s up to me–and you as the audience–you’re here reading, right?–to do the media’s job and spread the word about Tim DeChristopher as Bidder 70. Information is knowledge. Knowledge is power. Get informed. Get empowered. Empower others. Share solidarity on June 23 by spreading the news! Visit Peaceful Uprising  to learn about the actions, trial, sentencing and events. There’s even a rally location map online.  It’s just for the USA. Why don’t we make it GLOBAL?  Get informed then decide for yourself to tweet/blog/text/facebook –or not– in Solidarity with DeChristopher on June 23.  It’s about YOUR future too.

    The legal system seems to be under the illusion it can pick and chose who to convict, be it illegal or not. All power to you and your fellow Non violent activists Eva, The more coverage the better. xPenx

    once the press was in favour of the people now it is in favour with BIG companies.
    He is a brave man and he did BID on what was for sale silly world we live in

    Look who owns the press and it’s the same folks who own everything else so I’m not surprised when you don’t get a balanced view. I have never heard of this case…so thanks for the information!!!
