Tim DeChristopher meets Reverend Billy and the Church of Earthalujah
July 13, 2011
The gloriously bent Reverend Billy introduces Tim DeChristopher. Tim DeChristopher is awaiting sentencing later this month.
Tim DeChristopher slowed down a federal auction in December 2008 by bidding on Utah wilderness (“Bidder 70”) against gas and mining companies. Hoping to interrupt the energy policies of Bush-Cheney in the last days of that administration, he put in a bid for 22,000 acres without the riches to pay for it, just the love of the pristine wilderness of Southern Utah. He was convicted in early March for two felony counts and faces up to 10 years in prison.
