10 arrested during protest at Google headquarters

By From page A10 | June 26, 2014

MOUNTAIN VIEW — Police say a protest over Internet neutrality at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View ended with the arrest of ten people on suspicion of trespassing.

The ten protesters were taken into custody around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday after Mountain View police say they were warned repeatedly by officers and Google security to leave.

Police spokesman Sgt. Saul Jaeger says the protesters had gathered on the Google campus earlier in the day and were allowed to distribute fliers. But Google did not want them there overnight.

The protesters were calling for Internet neutrality, the concept that all online traffic should be treated equally so service providers can’t set up a system that gives special preference to their own content or websites willing to pay for privileged access.
