Activist, mother, singer-songwriter, labor leader, old growth defender and organizer, FBI plaintiff, EarthFirst!er, victim of an uninvestigated bombing, fiddle player, tree-spiking opponent, anti-corporate warrior succumbed to cancer shortly before 7am PST today, a little more than two weeks after the FBI's attorney accused her of faking cancer.

William Jefferson Clinton, Janet Reno, Governor Pete Wilson, Maxxam CEO Charles Hurwitz, the City of Oakland CA Police and City Council, The FBI, especially Agent Held, and the mainstream pack-rat journalists who participated in the FBI's slur and slander following the May 24, 1990 bombing of Judi Bari, have her civic blood on their hands.

Her death brings to a focus most of the ills people of good will confront today: the destruction of the environment by greedy corporate myopiates; the failure of State and Federal regulating agencies to do their jobs; the raiding of employee pension funds by takeover artists; the participation by law enforcement agencies on all levels--state, local and federal--in criminal activity, especially bombing and incarcerating citizen activists, like Judi, Mumia, Leonard and Geronimo; the selling of the government to the highest bidder; the ignorance of the media and its willing suspension of ethics in favor promoting the governmental and corporate lie; the rewarding of S&L raiders; the infiltration of citizen action groups by the American intelligence assets; the demeaning of women's role in activating the citizenry; the damning social engineering of labor and commerce and peace and justice workers by nasty government agents; the lie that pacifists like Judi and the thousands of everyday citizens who have been arrested while working to stop the destruction of the planet are ecoterrorists; and the music that invigorates the folk to act.

All of these came together in Judi's life. She often quoted Joe Hill: "Don't mourn. Organize."
