"We don't Want Google Makin' No Secret Deals": Demonstrators Sing Out at Google HQ

Organizers including folks from Color of Change and http://www.FreePress.net formed a coalition to protest at Google today. Kids carried colorful google theme signs and the Raging Grannies were there to lead a little singalong. The Grannies were sayin' how they don't trust those big corporations who make back room deals...

From the very young to the very old, lots of clever signs, and even a little musical play today at Google Headquarters in Mountain View. The Grannies sang about how they don't trust those big corporations who make back room deals...meaning Verizon and Google whom they called out by name!

From the Raging Grannies song sheet:

to the tune of Clementine:

Can the chickens in the henhouse all be guarded by the fox
Every farmer knows it WON'T do
And the henhouse needs a lock
So when Google says "Just Trust Us"
We all know it's just a stall
The FCC must do its duty and proTECT access for all

Oh my darlin, oh my darlin' Oh my darlin' FCC
Keep computers safe from foxes
Don't let Google mess with me!
