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.

Under pressure from the US government, RT America has announced that it would register as a “foreign agent” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
