One Year Update


Tim is facing ten years in prison on two felony charges for derailing an illegal sale of public land from the outgoing Bush administration to private oil and gas developers.

A full year after I disrupted the BLM oil and gas auction, I still have no regrets for my actions. The legal case against me continues.

This kind of trial is nothing but intimidation-- and the best answers to intimidation are joy and resolve. That’s what we’ll need in Utah.

Read joint letter explaining the urgent need for solidarity on February 28.
