Bidder 70

Back by popular demand, this film documents the story of Tim DeChristopher who in 2007 disrupted an auction of oil and gas rights. His courageous act inspired other acts of civil disobedience in an effort to shock our social/political system out of its stupor of inaction and deal with CO 2 pollution.  Abby Brockway, of the Delta 5, whose recent trial for blocking an oil train drew national media attention, will discuss the role of civil disobedience in the climate justice movement.
