Darryl Cherney playing guitar, May 2015
New York City, New York, US
|Occupation||Musician and activist|
He has produced five albums of his own political satire, and founded Environmentally Sound Promotions and Churn It Up Records. Together with Greg King, he co-founded[when?] the movement to save what eventually became the federally protected Headwaters Forest Reserve near Eureka, California. He organized four rallies in support of Julia Butterfly Hill's two-year tree sit. He organized the Redwood Summer campaign with Judi Bari.
Cherney ran for Congress in the 1988 Democratic primary, where he met fellow activist Judi Bari.
He ran for the Green Party presidential nomination in 2016. He ran a "no money in politics" campaign on social media, featuring the hashtag #FeelTheChern.
On May 24, 1990, Cherney was injured when a pipe bomb exploded in the car he and Judi Bari were traveling in. Bari was severely injured by the explosion. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which accused Bari and Cherney of bombing themselves. Bari and Cherney subsequently sued the FBI and Oakland Police agents for violations of the United States Constitution. Cherney and the late Bari's estate were awarded $4.4 million for violations of the First Amendment (freedom of speech) and the Fourth Amendment (the right to be free from unlawful arrest and illegal search and seizure).
In 2012, he told KHUM radio that he does not consider himself an "extremist," preferring the term "radical." In 2012, Cherney's documentary film Who Bombed Judi Bari? was released. There is an ongoing lawsuit against the FBI to prevent it from destroying evidence that could contain the bomber's DNA, and Cherney indicated in a Democracy Now interview that he believes the FBI was guilty of not only framing him and Judi but of a cover-up. Cherney has stated elsewhere that “I believe the bomber is findable.” In October 2012, Cherney announced a $50,000 reward “for information leading to the identification, arrest, prosecution and incarceration of the person or persons responsible for the attempted assassination of Judi Bari by placing a bomb under the seat of her car.”
