text IYSSE mounts campaign against UC Berkeley police censorship by Evan Blake (WSWS repost)
In response to claims that new policies at UC Berkeley have made "free speech available to only those that the police deem safe or those wealthy enough to pay for it,” the university said it would modify its policy to make it less onerous. The fundamental thrust of the policy remains unchanged, however. Student groups can still be required to pay the police if they wish to hold a meeting....

text The Right to the City and the Greed of the Rich by Julia Lis and Michael Hartmann
Thanks to everyone who resisted the GOP tax giveaway! Unlike the security state, the constitutional state should mean compromises, negotiations, concessions, and countermeasures to reverse exploding inequality and precarious work. The state should represent the public interest and yet is often "the errand boy of the banks" (Bill Moyers). The richest three Americans have more wealth than 150 million! Closing the tax havens, ending tax competition, and prohibiting profit-shifting are necessar...

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.
