Google Upsets Environmentalists as It Plays D.C. Money Game | TIME.com
A handful of environmental activists gathered Thursday outside a glitzy fundraiser in Washington to protest corporate hypocrisy. Like most of the demonstrations that dot downtown D.C. each day, it was a ragtag scene: a few paid staffers, a couple of passionate locals, and a clutch of students toting signs and chanting slogans outside a glassy office tower. The company being targeted, however, was an unlikely villain for environmental protests. “Google is supposed to be green,” says Matt Owens, a climate activist from suburban Washington. “What they’re doing is completely unacceptable.”
...The smattering of protesters chanted “Google, don’t fund evil,” as a pair of black-clad security guards blocked the doors, directing employees carrying takeout lunches to use the side door.
