Tim DeChristopher gave a moving speech after he was found guilty today. In
a few months, he will be sentenced. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
“Everything that went on inside that building tried to convince me
that I was alone, and that I was weak. They tried to convince me that
I was like a little finger, out there on my own, that can easily be
broken. And all of you out here were the reminder, for all of us, that
I was… connected to a hand, with many fingers, that could unite as one
fist. And that fist could not be broken by the power in there… All
those authorities in there wanted me think like a finger. But our
children are calling to us, to think like a fist.”
