Google's increasing power over political leaders in Washington, and its collaboration with the NSA and other spy agencies, have allowed the world's largest corporation to pull the strings of power. It started under Bush and sadly grew even worse under Obama.
On May 16, art activists in San Francisco postered Google headquarters, Google Ventures, Mozilla, and other areas with satirical art showing Google to be pulling President Obama's strings. They even postered the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which the activists say has gone along with the policies that have built the Intelligence State.
They also postered The Embarcadero and the Presidio.
Nobody claimed credit for the poster protests, but they come amid reports, like the recent piece in The Intercept, detailing Google's alarmingly close relations with the White House.
