Google has recommended a no vote against two shareholder proposals to be put to their annual general meeting May 8 that relate to free speech and human rights.
Proposal 4 comes from the The Office of the Comptroller of New York City and St. Scholastica Monastery. The Office of the Comptroller of New York City is the custodian and trustee of the Retirement System of NYC Teachers, Police, Fire Department and Education System. Resolution 5 comes from Harrington Investments and calls for a Google Board Committee on Human Rights. Google, the company who does no evil of course sees money as being above good and evil and therefore can’t understand what the fuss about human rights is all about.
