Google dismisses 28 protesters of Israel cloud agreement


Google recently removed more than 25 employees who had demonstrated against the firm's contract with the Israeli government related to cloud computing.


The workers were laid off after the company's internal investigation concluded that people had participated in Google Office protests in New York and Sunnyvale, California. 

Protesters displayed banners that had protestors holding banners inside the offices, some of which said "No more genocide for profit" and "Googlers against genocide."

Earlier this month, Time magazine published a report stating that an internal company document revealed that Israel's Ministry of Defense is a customer of Google Cloud. As a result, protests ensued.

No Tech for Apartheid said the article showed that Google had "built custom tools" for the Ministry of Defense and had "doubled down on contracting" with Israel's military since the war broke out.

The protestors have condemned Google and Amazon, who have a $1.2 billion contract to provide cloud computing services to the Israeli government and military, for their involvement in Project Nimbus.


They also demanded that Google address "health and safety issues" in the workplace, which arose from the "mental health consequences of working at a company that is using their labour to enable a genocide."
