Who Bombed Judi Bari?
Jan Haaken talks with Mary Liz Thomson, the director of Who Bombed Judi Bari?. Judi Bari was an environmental activist, labor organizer and feminist who helped to bridge crucial gaps between how timber workers and radical environmentalists understood each other. She also helped to feminize either side's understanding of their own interests. Bari worked with the Industrial Workers of the World, a revolutionary union with a famous past among timber workers, and EarthFirst! They talk about Judi Bari, the significance of her involvement in EarthFirst! and what it meant for the kind of direct actions they did, and the FBI's strange case against her for having a bomb go off in her own car.
