We have a history of protests in the summer in America. History is our measurement for change. Has things changed in america? Racism is alive and well and being militarized!
"If we do not know history it is as if we were born yesterday"
How the movement for civil rights has changed from sit-ins to the fire this time. How the waterhouses and policed dogs of the 60's has been repalaced by rubber bullets and flash grenades. Cointelpro is alive and well in Ferguson, Missouri with Agent Provocatuers on hand.
"COINTELPRO" was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for "Counterintelligence Program," the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate "radical" political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally- protected political activity. Its methods ranged far beyond surveillance, and amounted to a domestic version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.
