Tim DeChristopher

Tim DeChristopher's going to jail for 2 years for protesting (invalid) BLM oil & gas leases. He wasn't allowed to argue much of any defense in court. Read his statement before sentencing.

"I am here today because I have chosen to protect the people locked out of the system over the profits of the corporations running the system. I say this not because I want your mercy, but because I want you to join me."

Read what Terry Tempest Williams wrote about the trial.
Get sent to jail in a few weeks in Washington, D.C. by protesting the tar sands pipeline, which Jim Hansen says would be "essentially game over for the climate."
I believe that Peaceful Uprising is the org Tim set up.
