Google fires 28 employees for protesting Israel cloud deal

TEHRAN, Apr. 23 (MNA) – Google has fired more than two dozen employees who protested this week against the company’s cloud computing contract with the Israeli regime.

The workers were dismissed after an investigation found that they had staged protests inside Google’s offices in New York and Sunnyvale, California. In Sunnyvale, they entered the office of Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian, according to a post on X by the group that organized the demonstration, No Tech For Apartheid.

Protesters held banners that read “No More Genocide For Profit” and “We Stand with Palestinian, Arab and Muslim Googlers.” 

A Google spokesperson told CNN Thursday that the protests were part of a long-standing campaign by a group of organizations and people who largely don’t work at the company.

“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.”

Google and Amazon have a $1.2 billion contract to provide cloud computing services to the Israeli regime, according to No Tech For Apartheid, who have strongly condemned the dismissals.
