Tim DeChristopher is being tortured for a clerical adventure that amounts at worst to a harmless prank. He is a political prisoner of the United States Government because he entered fake bids on lands to keep them from being developed.
This is the Tim DeChristopher advocacy website.
Worth noting before you whiz on by this…
He was not guilty of a criminal act. His actions caused no harm to anyone. The auction at which he bid was voided shortly afterward because the land was not up for sale.
Now he is in a Secured Housing Unit (SHU) in a Federal Prison. SHUs are not much bigger than a coffin.
DeChristopher’s legal team will hold a press conference on Thursday March 29th, at 1:30pm in front of the Salt Lake City Frank E. Moss Federal Courthouse. In the meantime, Peaceful Uprising is urging supporters to contact prison officials and members of the US Congress with the message: “Tim DeChristopher inmate #16156-081 be immediately removed from the Special Housing Unit (SHU) and placed back in the Minimum Security Camp at FCI Herlong.”
