Tim De Christopher~ Transformation Without Apocalypse

A video of his talk at that conference…

Tim DeChristopher is an environmental activist, favouring direct action, or ”rushing the field”. He successfully stopped Gas drilling in Utah…..

On December 19, 2008 he protested a Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease auction of 116 parcels of public land in Utah’s redrock country by successfully bidding on 14 parcels of land (totaling 22,500 acres) for $1.8 million with no intention to pay for them. DeChristopher was removed from the auction by federal agents, taken into custody, and questioned. DeChristopher served 21 months in prison, from July 2011 through April 2013.

Saying they had been rushed into auction with insufficient environmental and scientific review, the United States Department of the Interior canceled many of the leases shortly after the auction and a subsequent court injunction. (Wikipedia)
