> COINTELPRO may not be a well-understood acronym but its meaning and  
> continuing impact are absolutely central to understanding the  
> government’s wars and repression against progressive movements.  
> COINTELPRO represents the state’s strategy to prevent movements and  
> communities from overturning white supremacy and creating racial  
> justice. COINTELPRO is both a formal program of the FBI and a term  
> frequently used to describe a conspiracy among government agencies— 
> local, state, and federal—to destroy movements for self- 
> determination and liberation for Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous  
> struggles, as well as mount an institutionalized attack against  
> allies of these movements and other progressive organizations.
> COINTELPRO 101 is a 56-minute educational film that will open the  
> door to understanding this history. This documentary will introduce  
> viewers new to this history to the basics and direct them to other  
> resources where they can learn more. The intended audiences are the  
> generations that did not experience the social justice movements of  
> the sixties and seventies.
