Durham, N.C., WWP launches political film series

Fifty community members were present as the Durham branch of Workers World Party launched the Liberation Sunday Film Series, a free monthly event consisting of a film screening and political discussion hosted by the Cuban Revolution Restaurant & Bar.

This month’s film was “Cointelpro 101,” a documentary on the FBI’s counterintelligence program, which brutally repressed the movements for Puerto Rican independence, Native American sovereignty, Chicano/Mexicano and Black liberation, as well as the anti-Vietnam War movement and struggles for economic justice.

This government program of repression was carried out in secret for years by means of infiltration by informants, framing of political activists for crimes they never committed, resulting in decades of incarceration, and often through outright assassinations.
