Ward Churchill has long been an outspoken critic of violence by the US
State, and as such, has attracted negative attention from those in
positions of power in the government, the media, and academia. Not one
to back down in the face of criticism, Churchill will speak on academic
repression as well as the history and the lasting effects of
colonization and genocide in America.
COINTELPRO Lives: Reflections on Government Repression Then & Now
WARD CHURCHILL with RICHARD BROWN of the SF8

Although COINTELPRO formally ended in the 1970s, the US government
continues to wage covert operations and other repressive tactics to
"expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize" radical
social movements. Ward Churchill (author of COINTELPRO PAPERS) will
speak on the history of COINTELPRO and the State's ongoing campaigns of
repression targeting dissident groups. Richard Brown will speak on
behalf of the SF8, eight former Black Panthers whose recent arrest on
previously-dismissed charges demonstrates that COINTELPRO is alive and well.
