Over 100 Protest Google’s Shareholder Meeting In Mountain View

Google seemingly enters new aspects of our lives every month. But as it's reach continues to grow, so too does it's list of critics. Several hundred of them gathered outside Google's Headquarters, known as the GooglePlex to make sure their voices were heard loud and clear.

The protesters ranged from housing rights advocates from San Francisco to consumer watchdogs concerned about Google’s tax policies. About five of the protesters had proxies who went in to speak at the meeting.

The group Eviction Free San Francisco opposes evictions and has been working on behalf of residents at an apartment building at 812 Guerrero Street.

They claim Jack Halprin, an attorney who works for Google, purchased the building and is evicting residents under the Ellis Act.
