Bryan Cahall is a good friend of Peaceful Uprising who came to visit us in Salt Lake City, Utah. He came to show solidarity during Tim DeChristopher's sentencing.
Tim DeChristopher was convicted of disrupting what was seen as a last giveaway to the oil and gas industry by the Bush administration, bidding $1.8m for the right to drill in remote areas of Utah. After the BLM denied his offer to pay with money he raised, Tim was convicted of defrauding the government last March. Tim was sentenced to two years in prison the day before this fundraiser.
Lindytown, WV has received a lot of media attention due to the town being located in the shadows of a large mountain top removal operation owned by Massey Energy. Lindytown today looks like a ghost town instead of the populated rural community that is once was. Only five houses remain in the community while the rest of the houses and even the church were destroyed by bulldozers. Lindytown had one church: Twilight Church of Christ which is now destroyed.
