Tech should not be in the business of war
WHEN WE ORGANIZE, WE WIN!!
Thank you for signing on to amplify the call for our employers to say NO to tech for warfare.
Today we learned that Google will not renew its AI contract with the Department of Defense. (Read the story here https://gizmodo.com/google-plans-not-to-renew-its-contract-for-project-mave-1826488620)
We, employees of the tech industry claim this as our victory, but we also acknowledge this is just step one. We will continue to fight for Microsoft, IBM and Amazon to follow Google’s lead, and we will continue to fight for the tech industry’s commitment to no more future military contracts.
