WHAT: NoTechforICE: Cambridge Microsoft Petition Delivery
WHEN: Thursday 1 PM – 2 PM
WHERE: Microsoft NERD Center, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge MA USA 02142
DETAILS: 100,000 people have signed petitions calling on Microsoft to stop helping ICE hurt kids. On July 26th we’re delivering them to corporate offices across the country. We will be impossible to ignore.
Children have been separated from their parents. Babies are still detained in inhumane conditions. All of this because families were seeking safety in the United States. More than 100,000 people have signed petitions calling for big tech company to stop helping the government hurt kid. Microsoft employees are speaking .
But Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, is stubbornly saying he won’t drop the company’s contract with ICE. Microsoft’s $19.4 million contract with ICE is to provide dangerous software that is being used to help the government violate human rights faster and “efficiently”. Still, we can see the pressure is working. Major companies are starting to drop contracts with ICE and the pressure is building for Microsoft to do the same.
