The choice you are making today is what side are you on.
BIDDER 70 centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism in our time, igniting a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice.
Tim would never call himself an environmentalist. Justice is meaningful to Tim. Justice, meaning that since we on this planet are interconnected, what happens in one area of the world affects us all. Follow Tim, Bidder 70, from college student to incarcerated felon. Redefine justice for yourself. Choose your side.
