Title: Radical History Series: Redwood Summer
START DATE: Thursday May 23
TIME: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details:
The Holdout, 2313 San Pablo Ave., Oakland
Event Type: Speaker
Redwood Summer, a summer of civil disobedience actions organized out of base camps in 1990 in the forests of Northern California, was Earth First!’s first foray into mass organizing, and changed the course of the Headwaters Forest Campaign and other grassroots forest defense campaigns. It also took place in the context of the FBI targeting of Earth First!, the bomb attack on Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney and the hotly factional “Timber Wars” as timber corporations cut their workers out of their jobs.

This presentation is organized by Karen Pickett and Mokai Blue with Earth First! since the 1980s, who also worked closely with Judi Bari throughout that era.

In February 2013, The Holdout and Aid & Abet launched an ongoing series of talks on recent San Francisco Bay Area Radical History, covering 1980 to the present.
