Jerusalem, ALRAY - Some 40 US organizations called on Google and Amazon on Saturday to pull out of a contract to provide cloud services to the Israeli occupation government and military.
In an open letter, the groups voiced their support for the Google and Amazon workers who demanded their employers to stop enabling the Israeli occupation government to oppress the Palestinians.
The organizations explained that the technology provided by the two tech companies help the Israeli occupation military surveil the Palestinians and force them out of their lands.
They stressed that technology should be used to "bring people together and not to enable apartheid and racial discrimination."
Nearly 1,000 workers at Amazon and google signed the letter demanding the tech giants to terminate Project Nimbus.
They stated that the project allows for "further surveillance of and unlawful data collection on Palestinians, and facilitates the expansion of Israel's illegal settlements on Palestinian land."
"Israel’s military has contracted Amazon and Google to build and fuel the technology used to oppress, occupy, and bomb Palestinians," said Evan Greer director of the Fight for the Future. "Thus, we demand them cut their ties with Israel."
