Wednesday Film Series on JUDI BARI -- REDWOOD WARRIOR
WHO BOMBED JUDI BARI?
Presented by Steve Jacobson
This documentary covers the story of Judi Bari’s case against the FBI and the OPD (the Oakland police). The first charge against the FBI is false arrest the FBI accused Judi and Darryl of possessing the explosives which blew up in their car. The second charge is bogus investigation: the FBI never made the slightest attempt to find out who bombed Judi Bari, even though there were written death threats against her life which had been turned over to the FBI. The third charge is against the FBI bomb school: in the weeks before the car bombing, an FBI special agent taught a course in how to blow up cars with pipe bombs -- the same agent who later accused Judi of planting a bomb in her own car. The fourth charge is COINTELPRO: the same FBI oppression and violence used against political activists and organizations for social change like the Black Panthers in the 1960s and 1970s was now being used against Earth First! in the 1990s. And the fifth charge against the FBI is falsifying evidence: the FBI crime lab distorted and manipulated scientific evidence to support their accusation that Judi Bari accidently bombed herself in her own car while transporting a bomb to blow up someone else. Other short documentaries about the Judi Bari case will be available to show this evening as well.
