FREE Film & Soup Supper--On Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm The Earth Film Series will be presenting the film “Bidder 70” at the Church of Christ Congregational in Goshen. Winner of 20 major film festival awards, Bidder 70 tells the story of a peaceful warrior whose patriotism and willingness to sacrifice have ignited the climate justice movement. Tim DeChristopher, as Bidder 70, disrupted an illegitimate BLM oil and gas auction in December of 2008, by outbidding oil companies for parcels around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. DeChristopher bid 1.8 million dollars and saved 22,000 acres of pristine wilderness. No property was destroyed, no one was hurt, and valid concerns were raised over the entire BLM oil and gas leasing process.
