The government calls that â&#x20AC;&#x153;violating the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Actâ&#x20AC;? and thinks he should spend ten years in jail for the crime; we call it a noble act, a profound gesture made on behalf of all of us and of the future. :KHQ7LPGLVUXSWHGWKHDXFWLRQKHGLGVRLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;QHWUDGLWLRQ of non-violent civil disobedience that changed so many unjust laws in this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past.
