COINTELPRO is an acronym for a series of FBI counterintelligence programs designed to neutralize political dissidents. Although covert operations have been employed throughout FBI history, the formal COINTELPRO's of 1956-1971 were broadly targeted against radical political organizations. It was disbanded after the 70's. Today's USA PATRIOT ACT enables federal, state and local governments to wage "low intensity" warfare against anyone form suspected terrorists, political dissidents to anti-war protestors. This exhibit looks at historical and current infiltration activities be federal authorities and local police departments into activist and countercultural groups and organizations.
