Marking the moment:
On May 24, people from near and far will gather at 11:30 am to mark the moment of the bomb explosion (just before noon) at the site in Oakland that it blasted through Judi's car, nearly killing her and forever changing the Earth First! movement. There will be music, and a speak-out. The site is in front of Oakland High School, near E.33rd on Park Blvd. Info at 510-548-3113, http://www.judibari.org and Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters Facebook page.
