Google employees have publicly opposed their company working on a military contract, leading Google to announce that it will not renew that particular contract after next year.
RootsAction joins with World BEYOND War in thanking the women and men who've taken this stand.
Click here to sign the following petition:
"We the undersigned applaud those employees of Google who resist allowing Google to work in the business of war. We want to express our deep gratitude for your willingness to take this critical stand. The particular new dangers of automated weapons provide one more reason to make mass killing a thing of the past and to move public policies to a world beyond war.
"We further want to encourage all workers at all companies in all countries, including at Google, to expand this effort until it results in a firm commitment to reject all military contracts -- until every company meets the demand of Google's employees to 'publicize and enforce a clear policy stating that neither [this company] nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology.'"
