COINTELPRO

I got chills watching these real, true heroes of the anti-war movement discuss the reasons for their break in to an FBI field office in order to expose the truly horrible actions of the FBI. For some reason, the details of the COINTELPRO campaign the FBI waged against the anti-war left wasn’t something I was privvy to. Like so much successful (and unsuccessful) historical left activism, the history of these movements and individual actions is not taught in schools, hardly anyone mentions it, and to our great detriment.
