Google internal revolt grows as search-engine Spartacuses prepare strike over China

Engineer Liz Fong-Jones used her Twitter account to advocate for a strike if Google’s management team is seen to be pressuring the company’s security and privacy teams to sign off on DragonFly.

”If they aren’t allowed to do their jobs, that is another signal that clearly indicates resigning on Feb 1 is the right move for me,” she wrote before offering to match a $100,000 “potential strike or mass resignation funds.”

She then updated her account as internal employees pledged money to such a fund: “$20k already pledged… $30k… $50k… $70.5k…” Within three hours, Fong-Jones said she had raised the $100,000.
