Sierra Club hosts spring potluck, movie screening

The Sierra Club Yolano Group will host its annual spring potluck dinner at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 10, in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 314 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Individuals are asked to bring their favorite dish to share and — in striving to be a “zero waste” event — bring their own plates, cups, utensils and a cloth napkin. The Yolano Group will provide beverages.

The event will screen the full-length documentary “Bidder 70,” which centers on an extraordinary, ingenious, and effective act of civil disobedience. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher disrupted a highly controversial U.S. Bureau of Land Management oil and gas leasing auction for thousands of acres of pristine Utah land that were slated for drilling leases. Not content to merely protest outside the Utah state capitol during one of the last gifts of the Bush administration to the oil and gas industry, DeChristopher entered the auction hall and registered as bidder No. 70.

He then outbid industry giants by offering $1.7 million on 22,000 acres of various land parcels adjacent to national treasures like Canyonlands National Parkland effectively safeguarding the lands before the bidding was halted. Two months later the incoming Obama administration invalidated the entire auction. DeChristopher, however, was indicted and convicted on two federal felonies for fraud and spent two years in federal prison before being released in April of 2013. This film highlights his actions and the series of events that unfolded after the auction.
