FRI,NOV.15 on CATALYST: Revolutionary Ecology: Judi Bari

JUDI BARI was a 1990s environmenalist & labor activist, who linked saving precious redwoods forest in California with workers' rights and fighting racism. Part of the non-violent (though malishly malighned by the State)  Earth First!, Bari and her frined/colleague David Cheney were victims of a car bomb in 1990---then, furthered victimized as the FBI and other State agencies accused them of bombing themselves. This Alternative Radio documentary illuminates the continuing struggle to take on economic class and environmental racism as we fight climate change---but, also challenges how "terrorism" is defined---and used---by the State to repress activism. Narrated by the activist-actor Ruby Dee.
