“Before Occupy Wall Street, there was Redwood Summer”

"Who Bombed Judi Bari?" is a film that tells the story of the goverment's attacks on Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney. Bari and Cherney were falsely arrested for car-bombing themselves on May 24, 1990 while on an Earth First! musical organizing tour for Redwood Summer. They sued the FBI for violations of the First Amendment, claiming the FBI knew they were innocent but arrested them to try to silence them. Having survived the bomb but now stricken by cancer, Judi Bari, a leader of the movement to save California’s old growth redwoods, gives her on-camera, deathbed testimony about the attempt on her life and her colorful organizing history with the radical environmental movement Earth First.

Darryl Cherney will be at the CMC on Monday, November 12th at 9pm to speak about the lengthy trial and legal battle the government put Judi Bari and him through, after the assassination attempt on their lives.
