text Militarism and its complicities by Steve Martinot
Though it proclaims itself against police militarization, Berkeley City Council has renewed three militarizing federal relationships: the Fusion Center (NCRIC), urban surveillence technology, and Project 1033. It apparently does not see how these projects work together, nor that they are pro-militarist. And in its conceit, it thinks it can control them each separately. That is a mistake....

Social Justice has had a negative connotation in the media lately, it is seen as something that goes against traditional beliefs. In reality, social justice is a movement that allows people to stand up for those who don’t have a voice, those who have been structurally and racially disempowered in today’s world.
