Link 20 Oct 87 notes Echoes of COINTELPRO in Ferguson»

disciplesofmalcolm:

Police and government tactics to intimidate, criminalize, humiliate, and undermine activists started on Day 1 in Ferguson and have only gotten worse, and the tactics used echo those of an earlier era.

Officially started in 1956 by the FBI, COINTELPRO (short for counterintelligence program) subversively investigated and undermined virtually every prominent African-American leader in the country for 15 years. A veritableWho’s Whoof leaders, ranging from Malcolm X to Fannie Lou Hamer to Jackie Robinson to Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King wereinvestigated and interfered with on the deepest levels. Undercover agents spied on leaders, federal informants were planted inside of their organizations, disinformation was often deliberately spread with the intention of sowing discord and strife between leaders and organizations. To this day, huge volumes of the COINTELPRO documents are redacted, fueling speculation on just what they may be hiding 40 years later.

While the program was officially ended in 1971, echoes of COINTELPRO are reverberating in Ferguson, Missouri, today and leaders on the ground and supporters around the world report feeling the attempts to discredit them are constant. Read on for more ….

Read Shaun King’s article and follow him on Twitter. He clears up a lot of the lies that have been pushed around by the police and the mass media. I don’t have a platform to speak on where I can reach millions at the moment, but one day I hope someone will bring up the importance of self-defense against these anti-revolutionary enemies of ours soon. We’ve see how other people must resort to armed struggle to solve their problems in other countries, yet we want to be nonviolent in the most violent country in the world. It’s like we’re in a boxing match, and we want to try to beat our enemy with our hands tied behind our backs.

Quote 20 Oct 1,153 notes
I’m interested in the way in which the past affects the present and I think that if we understand a good deal more about history, we automatically understand a great more about contemporary life.
