Tim DeChristopher is an American climate activist and co-founder of the environmental group Peaceful Uprising. On December 19, 2008 Tim disrupted a highly disputed Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease auction of 116 parcels of public land in Utah's red rock country by successfully bidding on 14 parcels of land (totaling 22,500 acres) for $1.8 million. Tim had no intention to pay the $1.8 million. Tim was removed from the auction by federal agents, taken into custody, and questioned. DeChristopher served 21 months in prison, from July 2011 through April 2013.

Tim outbid industry giants on land parcels which, starting at $2 an acre, were adjacent to national treasures like Canyonlands National Park. Two months later, incoming Interior Secretary Ken Salazar invalidated the auction. Bidder 70 is a documentary film about DeChristopher and his actions of civil disobedience. In this program, Tim DeChristopher was interviewed by Terrence McNally who is a journalist and radio host.

"At this point of unimaginable threats on the horizon, this is what hope looks like. In these times of a morally bankrupt government that has sold out its principles, this is what patriotism looks like. With countless lives on the line, this is what love looks like, and it will only grow." ~ From Tim DeChristopher's statement to the court at his sentencing hearing
