COINTELPRO 101 exposes illegal surveillance, disruption, and outright 
murder committed by the U.S. government in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. 
"Cointelpro" refers to the official FBI COunter INTELligence PROgram 
carried out to surveil, imprison, and eliminate leaders of social 
justice movements and to disrupt, divide, and destroy the movements as 
well. Many of the government's crimes are still unknown. Through 
interviews with activists who experienced these abuses first-hand and 
with rare historical footage, the film provides an educational 
introduction to a period of intense repression and draws relevant 
lessons for present and future movements. Interviews in the video 
include: Muhammad Ahmad, Bob Boyle, Kathleen Cleaver, Ward Churchill, 
Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Priscilla Falcon, Geronimo Ji-Jaga Pratt, Jose 
Lopez, Francisco 'Kiko' Martinez, Lucy Rodriguez, Ricardo Romero, 
Akinyele Umoja, and Laura Whitehorn.

COINTELPRO 101 has won numerous awards at film festivals throughout the 
US and has recently screened in Havana, Cuba and Johannesburg, South 
Africa and at the University of Puerto Rico.
