speaker for our Nov. 9 2013 convention in Worcester Ma.,
As you may know, Tim DeChristopher was the activist who "spoiled" the auction of public lands to large corporations in Utah in December of 2008. He was later convicted and served about 2 years for his "crime".

The message is that when people stand together, they no longer have to be exploited. Alienation is perhaps the most effective tool of control in America, and every reminder of our real connectedness weakens that tool.” (More about his inspiring story is at http://www.peacefuluprising.org/tim-dechristopher/tims-story, and in the documentary Bidder 70) (http://vimeo.com/19752485)

Let’s use this 2013 Green-Rainbow Party Convention to continue coming awake, however painful and glorious this might be
