A bit of history: Earth First! activists Judi Bari & Darryl Cherney were subjects of a bomb attack in Oakland on May 24, 1990 as they were organizing for Redwood Summer. They were charged with bombing themselves by the FBI & OPD; Earth First! was smeared, & a serious investigation was never done. Judi & Darryl sued the FBI & OPD for civil rights violations, winning the case in 2002. Judi Bari died in 1997. Activists continue to investigate the bombing.
Judi famously said, “The FBI should find the bomber…& fire him!”
We will never forget.
We will never give up.

Judi Bari was also, an IWW member at the time and it is obvious that the bombing was at least enabled by the timber corporations which Judi was challenging by organizing alliances between dissident timber workers and environmentalists together.

As Darryl Cherney once said:

"Judi Bari did something that I believe is unparalleled in the history of the environmental movement. She is an Earth First! activist who took it upon herself to organize Georgia Pacific sawmill workers into the IWW…Well guess what friends, environmentalists and rank and file timber workers becoming allies is the most dangerous thing in the world to the timber industry!"

(June 20, 1990 at a Redwood Summer demonstration in Samoa, CA).

Judi Bari was a class struggle and environmental martyr.
