We will be standing in solidarity with Tim DeChristopher, singing songs, sending our thoughts to Tim for his trial on 2/28, and building connections and community. As we move into authentic connections with others, we find common ground, leading us towards a greater sense of community and possibilities for social change.

Here is Tim's story:

In 2008, Tim DeChristopher disrupted an oil and gas auction in Utah. Within 2 months, the Department of Interior examined the auction and deemed that it had been conducted improperly, thereby cancelling 77 of 116 parcels. Yet, another two months down the line, Tim was indicted on two counts and now faces up to a maximum of 10 years in jail, when he goes on tr...ial February 28th, 2011. Civil disobedience is on trial here!!! As fellow activists, as citizens concerned by environmental havoc and social injustice, I invite you to stand behind this inspiring rabble rouser -- because this movement is about all of us working together, uniting forces to create a just future.
