A bunch of anonymous Amazon employees have penned an op-ed slamming their employer for a current contract with Israel and calling on the firm to drag out of the venture.
“We are writing as Google and Amazon employees of conscience from diverse backgrounds,” the letter, posted by The Guardian on Tuesday, from about 400 Amazon and Google employees stated. “We believe that the technology we build should work to serve and uplift people everywhere, including all of our users. As workers who keep these companies running, we are morally obligated to speak out against violations of these core values.”

The letter continues, “For this reason, we are compelled to call on the leaders of Amazon and Google to pull out of Project Nimbus and cut all ties with the Israeli military. So far, more than 90 workers at Google and more than 300 at Amazon have signed this letter internally. We are anonymous because we fear retaliation.”
The employees allege that Project Nimbus, a partnership announced in June that can make Amazon the Israeli authorities’s main cloud supplier, will “sell dangerous technology to the Israeli military and government” and “will make the systematic discrimination and displacement carried out by the Israeli military and government even crueler and deadlier for Palestinians.”

“We condemn Amazon and Google’s decision to sign the Project Nimbus contract with the Israeli military and government, and ask them to reject this contract and future contracts that will harm our users,” the op-ed provides. “We call on global technology workers and the international community to join with us in building a world where technology promotes safety and dignity for all.”
Amazon didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark from Fox News.
