Sun Jun 29 2014 (Updated 07/02/14)Occupy Google Demands Dialogue, Gets Arrested
Sun Jun 29 2014 (Updated 07/02/14)Ten Arrested at Google Headquarters Asking for Dialogue in Battle for Net Neutrality
On the afternoon of June 24, a group of activists set up tents and banners in front of Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, CA, announcing their protest online at OccupyGoogle.org. The protester’s demanded that Google engage in a conversation about what the company should be doing in the fight for Net Neutrality. The activists claim Google could be doing a lot more, and started the camp-out to apply pressure.
Here’s how Occupy Google explains their reasoning: Though Google and other major companies such as Netflix, Amazon and Microsoft have come out in support of preserving a free and open web, we believe much more can be done. Though many of us have concerns about the larger implications of Google’s effect on the world, as far as surveillance and ties to military technology, we are not here to protest Google. Google, with its immense power, has a social responsibility to uphold the values of the internet. We encourage Google to engage in a serious, honest dialogue on the issue of net neutrality and to stand with us in support of an internet that is free from censorship, discrimination, and access fees.
Late in the night, ten activists, including a journalist who was livestreaming the event, were arrested for trespassing.
