A national day of action is planned next Thursday as protests grow against Google's secretive $1.2 billion program known as Project Nimbus, which will provide advanced artificial intelligence tools to the Israeli government and military. We speak with two of the leaders of the protest: Ariel Koren, a former Google employee who says she was pushed out for her activism, as well as Gabriel Schubiner, who currently works at Google and is an Alphabet Workers Union organizer. "Cloud technology is extremely powerful, and providing that power to a violent military and to an apartheid government is not a neutral act," says Schubiner on Project Nimbus. The pair also detail how workers are rising up against what Koren says is Google's "culture of retaliation."
