Anti-Google Protesters Disrupt San Jose Mayor’s State Of The City Address

A group of protesters in San Jose interrupted Mayor Sam Liccardo's "State of the City Address" 4 times to protest Google's plans to build a mega-campus in the city according to a report from CBS. The protesters were from a group called Serve the People San Jose, which is a grassroots group opposed to the Google mega-campus.

While I can appreciate the residents concerns in San Jose, tactics like this are not helpful to anyone's cause.

"People are fearing that they won’t be able to live in San Jose," said Serve the People San Jose member Liz Gonzalez. "We have to be in their face because we’re fighting to stay in the city that we grew up with that we love where our family and friends are," she says.
