Add reminder

On March 8th, 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, PA and removed every file in the office. Mailed anonymously, the stolen documents started to show up in newsrooms. The most significant revelation was COINTELPRO, a controversial, secret, illegal surveillance program overseen by lifelong Bureau director J. Edgar Hoover. Despite one of the largest investigations ever conducted, the FBI was unable to catch the burglars. Those responsible have never revealed their identities. Until now.
