COINTELPRO: Katrina Style

Malik Rahim was co-founder of Common Ground, a grassroots, solidarity-based disaster relief effort to provide assistance to survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Despite the organization's critical role in the rebuilding of New Orleans, Common Ground was infiltrated by an FBI provocateur, named Brandon Darby, who sowed seeds of dissension, pitted volunteers against each other, and used his position of authority to take advantage of women. Malik Rahim reflects back on the COINTELPRO operations used against the Panthers and discusses the new COINTELPRO type covert operations currently going on against nonviolent anti-authoritarians and nonviolent black revolutionaries.
