Google Employees Protest China Efforts

After a mass demonstration by Google employees just a few weeks ago that resulted in some changes to the company’s sexual harassment policies, Google workers are protesting once again. This time they joined with representatives of Amnesty International to protest Google’s Dragonfly project, an effort to create a censored search engine for China. In a blog post, protesters said the project created a dangerous precedent for further surveillance and censorship of Google products. The post, signed by at least 50 employees, asked Google to cancel the project. It will be telling to see how Google management responds, if at all, to the protests against its plans for China, since it must juggle employees’ ethical concerns with the opportunity represented by the largest internet market.
