Today on Your Call: What happens when people challenge the US government’s power structure?


On the next Your Call, we’ll speak with filmmakers Beth and George Gage about the documentary film Bidder 70, which tells the story of Tim DeChristopher. In 2008, he derailed the Bush administration's Oil and Gas lease auction. After bidding $1.7 M, he won 22,000 acres of land with no intention to pay or drill. He will be released from jail soon after serving 18 months. How should power be challenged? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Beth and George Gage, directors of the documentary Bidder 70

Henia Belalia, member of Peaceful Uprising, a nonprofit collective working for just and healthy world
