Let’s buy some gas and oil leases.

Photo credit: Steve Griffen Salt Lake Tribune
I’m sure you have all heard about Tim DeChistopher the University of Utah student who is accused of sabotaging the Bush administration’s last minute effort to hand off sensitive BLM lands in Utah for oil and gas drilling. It will be hard to prosecute him for fraud if the money to pay for those leases is raised. Please join me and Lee in donating the money which will keep Tim out of jail and will prevent those leases from ever being drilled. That is democratic, eh?

    Already done! My mom and I were at the protest outside the BLM when this was going down. Her picture was in the paper here:


    There are two pictures. If you click on ’slideshow’ you can enlarge the second one. She’s the one with the sign that says ‘The land belongs to the American people to enjoy, not oil industries.’

    Here’s a clip of some of the rest of us!

    Thanks for sending this request to support Tim DeChristopher. We’re not getting much news about this in California. I will donate to his fund through the Center for Water Advocacy, but will you please continue to provide updates. Just when it seems like George Bush has found the bottom of the barrel, he digs deeper.

    Your friend,
    Lisa Rose

    Hey Joe-Grettings from Erika and I in Bali. We are here for the long run but will be back in the West for a Grand trip in April. Maybe see you in the big ditch?This story rings a bell. There is a guy in Idaho, John Marvel, who used the same process to ourchase grazing leases. He incurred the wrath of the Idaho legislature but ultimately prevailed. Seems like he would have some good advice and support for our friend Tim. He is the ED of Western Watersheds Project out of Boise
