Who Bombed Judi Bari Shown at HSU

Arcata,California- Darryl Cherney brought his new documentary film, Who Bombed Judi Bari?, to Humboldt State University tonight, with a screening in the Goodwin Forum. The event was sponsored by the HSU chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Darryl and Judi were part of the 1980's movement to save the last 5% of the remaining Old Growth Redwood forests, but there non-violent activism was met with violence. Who Bombed Judi Bari? tells the story of the events surrounding May 24, 1990, when a bomb detonated in the car Judi and Darryl were driving and the subsequent legal battles with the FBI and Oakland Police to clear their names of terrorism charges.

Upcoming Rendezvous/Action Camp Aug. 2-6

by EF!Humboldt ~ July 13th, 2012
What: A gathering of radical Earth lovers to train, share skills, strategize, have fun and bring attention to ongoing clear-cutting and old-growth logging. Events and workshops will include (but not limited to): Non-violent Direct Action, Basic and Intermediate Tree Climbing, Road Blockading, Hiking, Campfire revelry, Banner Painting, (Add your workshop here).
When: August 2nd to the 6th.
Where: 1 hour east of Arcata. See directions. Rideshares are being organized.
SPI clearcut, Underwood Mt.
Why: Timber companies continue to clear-cut the forest at a rapid pace and rare old-growth forests are under threat of industrial logging this summer in places like the Mattole River, Redwood Creek and South Fork Mountain. These practices are being green-washed by groups like Sustainable Forestry Initiative and Forest Stewardship Council. Their logos attract buyers who want to avoid harming the environment, but mask the reality of clear-cutting and old-growth logging on the ground. The companies and their certifiers need to be held accountable for their acts.
What to bring: Tent or tarp, sleeping bag, large backpack, sunscreen, comfortable footwear, a cup and dish. The weather will be fairly warm, but rain gear is still advised. Also bring contributions of food or cash for the kitchen and snacks or trail food for yourself.

This action-packed journey unfolds in the order Judi testified, questioned by civil rights attorney Dennis Cunningham. The archival footage brings the story to life, driven by music from the Earth First! movement. Judi Bari, an eloquent, brash orator with a union background, grows into a powerful environmental leader. Story threads and character arcs intertwine: the lawsuit against the FBI, the complex history of Earth First!, the loggers, the controversy of tree spiking, the political/romantic partnership of Judi and Darryl, and the fate of the ancient redwoods.
