One of the projects between the technology giant and Tel Aviv is the Nimbus, a $1.2 billion cloud that aims to provide cloud capabilities, machine learning and artificial intelligence to the Israeli Defense Ministry.

 It has not been made clear that Nimbus will be used specifically. The Israeli government previously characterized the project with the intention of “providing the government, the defense establishment and others with a comprehensive cloud solution”.

Examples of the growing rejection of Google’s cooperation with the Israeli military machine is Eddie Hetfield, who declared at a conference, “I am a software engineer, and I refuse to build technology that will boost genocide, apartheid or surveillance.”, after which he was fired.

The activsita group No Tech for the Apartheid states on its website, “Google and Amazon are fueling the genocidal attack on Gaza through a $1.2 billion contract with the Israeli government and military”.

The protests have also been joined by software engineers and workers in general of the company Amazon, which is also part of the Nimbus project, along with Google and the Zionist Defense Ministry.
