Mumia Abu-Jamal was one of hundreds of journalists who received in the mail a packet of covertly-copied COINTELPRO documents. They were sent by eight activists who broke into FBI offices in Media, Pennsylvania in 1971—and whose identities just became known last week. The papers detailed names and activities of individuals he knew well for years, living and working closely together in communal spaces, who were FBI informants.
