Introducing Episode 26: COINTELPRO
COINTELPRO was a term to describe the surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting of domesitic (US) political organizations by state actors. This week we plan on describing and discussing what remains (actually and existentially) of this program regarding rebels today. What use is it for us to consider our activities in light of state actors and how it can be self-aggrandizing. How is COINTELPRO a racist set of tools and how is it generally the mechanism by which radical activity can be marginalized, criminalized, and sensationalized? Was the Green Scare COINTELPRO? How does one keep ones sanity in the face of state actors hostility to our program(s)?
