因卷入以色列战争罪行,顶级新兵拒绝为谷歌或亚马逊工作

虽然刚刚成立一年多,但谷歌和亚马逊还没有公开发表反对 Nimbus 和#NoTechForApartheid 的工人运动,但激进网络已经成功地削减了公司的权力——即使只是轻微的。

As Google and Amazon employees fight back against the tech giants’ Israeli military contract, college graduates have also joined the resistance. Amid Israel’s assault on Gaza and occupied East Jerusalem in May 2021, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google signed a $1.22 billion contract to provide cloud technology to Israel’s public sector and its
