Google Building Vandalized in Boulder, Colorado

In the early hours of Thursday morning, a Google building located at 2930 Pearl St. in Boulder, Colorado, fell victim to an act of vandalism. Boulder Police Department spokeswoman Dionne Waugh confirmed that officers received a call at 4:29 a.m. regarding criminal mischief at the site. Upon arrival, they discovered that the east side of the building had been defaced with graffiti.

Social media users on Reddit later shared a photo of the graffiti, which displayed the words, “F*** Project NIMBUS” in white, accompanied by red spray paint splotches on the building’s brick wall. Project Nimbus, a collaborative venture between Google and Amazon, was established in 2021 with the objective of providing cloud computing infrastructure, artificial intelligence, and other technological services to the Israeli government and its military.

Protests against the Project Nimbus contract have been ongoing across the United States, with some Google and Amazon employees expressing their opposition since its inception. In October 2021, an anonymous group of workers from both companies collectively penned a letter published in The Guardian, urging their employers to withdraw from the project and sever all ties with the Israeli military. The graffiti’s message appears to be aligned with this sentiment.

When approached for comment, Google spokeswoman Anna Kowalczyk directed inquiries to the Boulder Police Department. Authorities are now seeking information from the public regarding the vandalism incident and have requested that anyone with relevant details contact Detective Snyder at 303-441-3386, referencing case number 24-05402.
