Who Bombed Judi Bari (93 min.)
By Mary Liz Thomson and Darryl Cherney
Producer Darryl Cherney in attendance for a Q & A after the movie.
There is a continuing cover-up of bombing of Judi Bari, an IWW union activist, who was seeking to bring trade unionists together with environmentalists.
This video documentary about Judi Bari’s life and work shows how she was making connections about the need to preserve the forests and to stop the clear cutting for quick massive profits by profiteers who bought the mill.
The need to protect our environment, while protecting the jobs and unions of workers, is an integral part of this story and this battle continues today as workers face mass unemployment.
The role of the FBI and the police in inciting the public against Judi Bari and those union activists, who were seeking to make these connections, is also crucial. The FBI is continuing its efforts to destroy evidence in the bombing despite the fact that the bombers still have not been apprehended. There will be a panel of Darryl and other labor environmental activists discussing the lessons of Judi Bari and what we have to do today.
