Cointelpro 101 was shown at the American Studies Association national conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico last week. Claude Marks was joined by Akinyele Umoja of Georgia State University and Lucy Rodriguez, a Puerto Rican independentista and former political prisoner. The focus “Cointelpro then and now” touched on issues of US colonialism and political prisoners. A similar program was also held in the Puerto Rican community, where Claude was joined by both Lucy and Alicia Rodriguez. That discussion made both historical and current connections between the Puerto Rican struggle to end US Colonialism and other struggles to end US imperialism.
