The Kauai Alliance for Peace and Justice will sponsor a free showing of the movie Cointelpro 101.  The movie details how peace and freedom activists and movements of the 60's and 70's were infiltrated, framed, destroyed and killed by the FBI.  A discussion to follow the movie will discuss how this relates to the Patriot Act today, and even affects the progressive environmentalist movement.

COINTELPRO, the secret FBI project to infiltrate and disrupt domestic organizations thought to be “subversive,” targeted many African-American, Native-American, and other movements for self-determination by people of color in the U.S.. Between 1956 and 1971, the FBI conducted more than 2,000 COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) operations. For more information on this movie, go to  

Kapaa Library, Kuhio Highway
