**Earlier in the day on May 24, people will gather to mark the moment and place where the bomb blew up.

Background:
A bomb planted in a car exploded in Oakland on May 24, 1990, injuring EF! activists Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney. Judi was nearly killed. The FBI and OPD called the pair bomb-carrying terrorists, and proceeded to smear them and Earth First! as the Redwood Summer campaign was kicked off. The activists sued the FBI and Oakland Police for violation of Constitutional rights, and 12 years later, won an unprecedented victory against the FBI and OPD. Judi died of breast cancer in 1997. The bomber was never found, but the investigation continues TO THIS DAY.
