Google takes a hard line against internal protests, firing 50 employees involved in demonstrations against the company's Israeli defense contract.

Google recently terminated 20 more employees who participated in protests against the company's involvement in an Israeli defence contract. The total number of workers fired since last week due to this issue now stands at 50, as reported by The Verge. According to Google, those who have been laid off are "non-participating bystanders."

Here is the story in five points:

In the aftermath of the protests, Google took a hard line. They launched an internal investigation and dismissed 28 employees directly involved in the protest. Subsequently, Google terminated an additional 20 employees categorised as "non-participating bystanders" by the protest organisers. This harsh response by Google, totaling over 50 firings, has significantly escalated internal tensions, reports The Verge.
