Google Employees Demand End to Chinese Search Engine Project

Around 200 Google employees, composed of engineers, designers, and managers have reportedly signed an open letter demanding that the company stop work on a censored version of Google Search for China.


The project, known as Dragonfly, can potentially be used to aid the powerful in oppressing the vulnerable, according to the open letter which was blogged on Medium.


A public petition was also launched by human rights group Amnesty International this week, calling on Google to cancel Dragonfly. The group will be encouraging Google workers to sign the petition by targeting them on LinkedIn and protesting outside Google offices.
