The Heist of the Century Wasn’t About Money

On March 8th, 1971 eight antiwar activists broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania and stole over 1,000 classified documents which revealed J. Edgar Hoover’s criminal government operation, COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program). COINTELPRO was directed towards the public in which it broke first amendment rights and was later dismantled. But we know this shit still exists. The eight antiwar activists called themselves the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI.
