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.
