The term 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 themselves.

Understanding the history and continuing impact 
of Cointelpro is absolutely central to 
understanding the U.S. government’s wars and its 
suppression of progressive movements.

COINTELPRO 101 opens the door to understanding this complex history.
