How a neighbourhood took on and won

When Google wants to do something, it usually gets its way. Not so in one Berlin neighbourhood. .../... the [campus] plans riled local activists and neighbourhood groups, who had concerns about gentrification and rising rents, and in some cases harboured specific anti-Google sentiment on issues such as tax and data privacy.

Let's kick Google out of our neighborhoods and out of our lives, online and offline!

First Kreuzberg, then the World!

Google plans to implant a "Google Campus" in Kreuzberg, Berlin. We, as a decentralized network of people are committed to not letting our beloved city be taken over by this law- and tax-evading company that is building a dystopian future.

Google has given $150,000 in free ads to deceptive anti-abortion group (Obria Group’s ads suggest it provides abortion services, when in fact it tries to persuade women not to terminate pregnancies)

"Fake News" as a service...

Google Walkout Organizers Say They're Facing Retaliation

"Google has a culture of retaliation, which too often works to silence women, people of color, and gender minorities. "

So is "cool" uh?

Ggle Helps Police Identify Devices Close to Crime Scenes

"The backlash is reminiscent of protests over Google's planned campus in Berlin and Amazon's proposed headquarters in New York City — both of which were abandoned before construction had even begun. The fate of these projects could provide a window into Alphabet's future in Toronto." :)

Des milliers de Berlinois contre «les loyers de dingue»

"Des tee-shirts «Airbnb : fuck off» sont vendus sur des stands, tandis que des militants distribuent des autocollants «Fuck off Google». Manière de rappeler qu’à l’automne dernier, les habitants de Kreuzberg sont parvenus à empêcher l’implantation d’un projet de «campus Google» – un incubateur de start-up, dans leur quartier déjà hautement gentrifié."

Street battle: the activists fighting to save their neighbourhood from the tech giants

"Facebook, Google and Amazon have not just colonised the internet: their hubs, campuses and offices are taking over huge sections of cities around the world. But campaigners from New York to Toronto and Berlin are fighting back"

Solidarity from Berlin to SF to Toronto to Rennes to NYC! <3

Fuck #Article13!

Fuck all corrupt #EU institutions and politicians who got that crap adopted!

Fuck all "artists" who got manipulated into defending it!


Absolute boycott + decentralized/distributed Resistance!

Should not be adding any more slides to this talk but I just made an exception to mention @FuckOffGoogle – a great example of what I’m calling “social regulation” (contrast with legislative regulation and technological regulation) of surveillance capitalists.

We start winning this war when they start becoming socially unacceptable. So it was with Big Tobacco, so it shall be with Big Data and Big Tech.

So do tell them to “fuck off” whenever you get the chance – time for being polite is over.

Accidentally opened a youtube video in the app, and it started playing a T-Mobile ad about unlimited data. Wonder if youtube allows targetting ads on people who are on data connections
