Burglars who took on the FBI abandon shadows

If you didn’t hear about it. Here’s an article in the NY Times from a couple of weeks ago on the 1971 FBI field office break-in. The information released to newspapers led to the discovery of COINTELPRO an insidious FBI program used to discredit radicals and progressives. Sadly many targets of their surveillance ended up murdered some, like Fred Hampton of the Black Panther Party, by the guns of police.
Thanks to the brave lawbreakers in this article the public learned about it. Definitely a good subject for a Celebrate People’s History poster!
