Organizers' demands include canceling a multibillion-dollar Google Cloud AI contract with the Israeli government, dubbed Project Nimbus.

Haseem said Nimbus' cloud services include facial recognition, object tracking and other custom technologies from Google and Amazon Web Services.

We reached out to Google about the protests but did not receive a response.
