Movies that Mobilize Film Series: Bidder 70

Bay Localize is showing the film Bidder 70 at The New Parkway Theater to kick off the film series fundraiser "Movies that Mobilize" to catalyze discussion on strategies for the climate justice movement. The film will be followed by a panel discussion highlighting community choice energy and what can be done to stop fracking in California! (Yet another of my famous I may not be able to attend, but you should totally go movies)

About Bidder 70:
On December 19, 2008 Tim DeChristopher disrupted a highly disputed Utah BLM Oil and Gas lease acution, effectively safeguarding thousands of acres of pristine Utah land that were slated for oil and gas leases. Not content to merely protest outside, Tim entered the auction hall and registered as bidder #70. He outbid industry giants on land parcels (which, starting at $2 an acre, were adjacent to national treasures like Canyonlands National Park), winning 22,000 acres of land worth $1.7 million before the auction was halted.

    I just realized that I am doing outreach for work at Sunday Streets, so I cannot attend the screening of Bidder 70. I hope you all still attend the film! I have heard from several people that it is fantastic.

    If one of you would like to volunteer to take the lead for meeting those attending that would be super, but not necessary if you are not comfortable doing so. But please go see this film!
