Monday, May 24 Marking the moment
People from near and far will gather at 11:30am to mark the moment of the bomb explosion (just before noon) at the site in Oakland that it blasted through Judi's car, nearly killing her and forever changing the Earth First! movement. There will be speakers, music, and a speak-out. The site is in front of Oakland High School, near E.33rd on Park Blvd. Info at 510-548-3113, www.judibari.org and Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters Facebook page.
