Start planning now for Bidder 70’s Global Release Party

Tim speaks from the land threatened by oil and gas leases in Utah

“At this point of unimaginable threats on the horizon, this is what hope looks like. In these times of a morally bankrupt government that has sold out its principles, this is what patriotism looks like. With countless lives on the line, this is what love looks like, and it will only grow…” Tim speaks from the land threatened by oil and gas leases in Utah

Message from Tim DeChristopher’s support crew, Peaceful Uprisings:
As you may have heard, Tim gets released from the prison system on April 21st, 2013 — one day before Earth Day. And we think it’s only appropriate to celebrate and welcome him home, with echoes of love resonating all over this land.
 
On Earth Day, PeaceUp is organizing a screening of Bidder70 in Salt Lake City: the first that Tim will be able to attend since the movie premiered last year! In conjunction with this event, the filmmakers (Beth & George Gage) have partnered with a film distributor, Gathr Films, to organize countrywide simultaneous theatrical screenings.

They include Wellington, New Zealand; Haifa, Israel; Nijmegen, Netherlands; Vancouver, Canada; and Oakland, Baltimore, Chapel Hill, Bloomington, Minneapolis, New York City, Lake Worth, Philadelphia, and Troy, New York in the United States. Supporters have sent birthday cards, held yoga classes, had afternoon tea, shown movies, and had cake to celebrate with her and let her know that she is neither alone nor forgotten.
