Google Fires Employees After Sit-In Demonstration Against Israeli Government

In the more than six months since Hamas terrorists attacked Israel, countless pro-Palestine protests have been coordinated across the U.S. and around the world by activists who insist that Israel is actually the guilty party in the ongoing war.

Earlier this week, a Big Tech titan was the target of such a demonstration when more than two dozen protesters staged a sit-in at Google offices on both coasts. The employees, organized by the leftist organization No Tech For Apartheid, occupied offices and common areas at Google facilities in New York and California and railed against the company’s contract to provide cloud computing services to the Israeli government.

The agreement, known as Project Nimbus, also involves Amazon and has been the source of criticism from anti-Israel activists since it was implemented several years ago.

This week’s demonstration, however, reached a new level and prompted the company to terminate the employment of everyone involved.

“A small number of employee protesters entered and disrupted a few of our locations,” a corporate spokesperson explained. “Physically impeding other employees’ work and preventing them from accessing our facilities is a clear violation of our policies, and completely unacceptable behavior. We have so far concluded individual investigations that resulted in the termination of employment for 28 employees, and will continue to investigate and take action as needed.”

Those participating in the sit-in, however, apparently felt losing their job was a small price to pay for expressing their animosity toward Israel and any company that would dare conduct business with its government.

“It is my responsibility to do everything I can to end this contract even while Google pretends nothing is wrong,” asserted Hasan Ibraheem, who had been a software engineer for the tech giant. “The idea of working for a company that directly provides infrastructure for genocide makes me sick. We’ve tried sending petitions to leadership but they’ve gone ignored. We will make sure they can’t ignore us anymore.”

Nine protesters were also reportedly arrested and subsequently issued a statement assailing their former employer.

“Last night, Google made the decision to arrest us, the company’s own workers — instead of engaging with our concerns about Project Nimbus, the company’s $1.2 billion cloud computing contract with Israel.”
