Just got an e-mail from Tim DeChristopher, who bid on some of the worst Bush oil and gas leases close to national parks and wild rivers in Utah. I contributed to his defense fund. Here's an update and a request for a painless favor.
"We are holding a fund raiser here in Salt Lake City on September 16th at the Broadway theater, where we will preview the Bidder70 film and show The Yes Men Fix the World, which isn't scheduled to hit U.S. theaters until October. If you're in Salt Lake, join us for this special screening. We will be talking Live to the Yes Men, via Skype and projecting it on the Big Screen. All proceeds go to the legal fund.
"If you're receiving this email you have probably supported me in one way or another, whether donating to my legal defense fund
, offering me moral support or making me some soup. I really appreciate all the forms of support I've received, and today I'm asking for a small favor and a big one.
"The small favor is to help me win the Grant for Change from nau.com
. Since I've been putting pretty much all my time into my legal case and the work of Peaceful Uprising, this grant is what I need to actually pay my bills.
