In 1971 a small group of citizens, horrified at the seemingly endless war in Vietnam and government harassment of peaceful organizers and civil rights and antiwar activists, mustered their courage and creativity and did something completely crazy: They burglarized an FBI office in the Philadelphia suburb of Media, Pennsylvania.

On the night of one of the biggest sporting events of the decade, they broke in and hauled off every document in the place. They spent the next weeks combing through the papers, copying the most damning and mailing them off to various journalists. They believed that once Congress members and the public knew, they'd do something to change FBI operations.

How did a group of "ordinary" citizens find the courage to take on one of the most powerful institutions, run by one of the most powerful men, in the country? And how did they manage to break into FBI offices, cart off thousands of pages of documents, and vanish without a trace? And how did they get away with airing the bureau's dirty laundry and exposing its political spying? Further, how did they keep their identities secret from 1971 until this very year?

Find out tomorrow (Tues. Sept. 23) at 7:00 p.m. in Textor 103. There will be a screening of 1971, the film based on their gripping story, followed by a Q&A with Jeff Cohen, Park Center for Independent Media director and associate professor of journalism, who has written about the FBI, NSA, and government malfeasance.

Free and open to all. Bring a friend . . . or several.
