This is viewer supported news

In 1990, a bomb ripped through the car of two Earth First activists who were on their way to an event to save the Redwood Forests. Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney were rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. Instead of conducting a thorough investigation of the attack, the FBI and Oakland police branded Bari and Cherney as terrorists and arrested the two environmentalists for allegedly transporting illegal explosives. Judi Bari is suing the FBI for false arrest, illegal search and seizure and denial of equal protection of the law. Today in a federal court room in California, the FBI will attempt to strip away at her case by asking the judge to dismiss some of the charges.

GUEST: JUDI BARI
