Protesters Gather Outside Google Headquarters


Protesters are gathering outside of Google’s headquarters. According to an “occupy Google” website, their goals are to “create and maintain is an Internet that acts as a free speech zone, a horizontal space for communication and sharing of information, and a public commons.”

Pictures of this protest are appearing on Twitter under the hashtag #OccupyGoogle, and as TechCrunch points out, some protesters have been arrested.

Protesters are encouraging Google to black out their website for a day in support. They also want the tech giant to provide links to petitions and a net neutrality comment page hosted by the Federal Communications Commission.
