Darryl Cherney (born 1956) is an American musician and environmental activist. He is a member of the Earth First! environmental movement. He lives in Humboldt County, California.

Cherney has produced five albums of his own political satire, and founded Environmentally Sound Promotions and Churn It Up Records. Together with Greg King, in 1986 he co-founded 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.

One of Cherney's songs, "Where Are We Gonna Work (When the Trees Are Gone?)", has been covered by Jello Biafra and Mojo Nixon on their album Prairie Home Invasion.

Political campaigns

Cherney ran for Congress in the 1988 Democratic primary, where he met fellow activist Judi Bari.

Cherney ran for the Green Party presidential nomination in 2016. He ran a "no money in politics" campaign on social media, featuring the hashtag #FeelTheChern.

Pipe bomb and aftermath

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, Cherney told KHUM radio that he does not consider himself an "extremist," preferring the term "radical."[citation needed] In 2012, Cherney's documentary film Who Bombed Judi Bari? was released.[1] 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.[2] Cherney has stated elsewhere that “I believe the bomber is findable.”[1]
