Film Series on JUDI BARI --
JUDI BARI DISCUSSES HER FBI CASE
Presented by Steve Jacobson: 510-776-2127
These shorter documentaries (and several more will be available to show this evening as well) give the background that illuminate Judi Bari’s famous law suit against the FBI and the Oakland police. They show Judi in the context of her work with Earth First! defending the northern forests. She had helped Earth First! spearhead "Redwood Summer," a major, non-violent, mass protest against corporate liquidation logging -- logging that takes out every single tree and never looks back. She and Darryl Cherney went on a speaking and concert tour to recruit college students for the Redwood Summer campaign. While on tour in Oakland, a bomb exploded in the car that she and Darryl were using. She was almost killed and Darryl was injured. These films fill in the history of Earth First! in the forests of northern California and depict Judi Bari’s biography.
The film is free but $5 donations are accepted.
Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Coffee House.
