On 8 March 1971, eight people broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania. The group, all of whom were ordinary citizens, called themselves the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI and stole every file in the office. The content in the stolen files ranged from training manuals to information about organised crime and draft resistance. Over time the group mailed the files to various newsrooms. One of the more significant elements in the stolen materials were files relating to a secret surveillance program that was run by J. Edgar Hoover.
