Per The New York Post:

Several Google employees were arrested and placed on administrative leave late Tuesday after staging 10-hour sit-ins at offices in New York and Sunnyvale, California to protest the company’s $1.2 billion cloud contract with Israel.

The pro-Palestinian employees, who are affiliated with a group called “No Tech For Apartheid,” posted several videos and live-streams of the protests — including the moment they were issued final warnings and arrested by local police for trespassing.

A third protest took place in Seattle.

The shocking protests included a complete takeover of Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian’s office in Sunnyvale by workers wearing traditional Arab headscarves.
