"Occupy" Protesters Outside Google


By KMVT News

San Francisco, California (CNN) Protesters strung banners and camped out at Google headquarters in San Francisco Wednesday.

A group of about 20, identifying themselves as "Occupy Google," wants the internet giant to do more to protect net neutrality - the idea that internet providers must treat all content the same.

Google and other major players like Netflix, Amazon and Microsoft, say they support net neutrality... but the protesters want Google to take a more active role.

Ten people were arrested and charged with trespassing after refusing to leave after about ten hours.

The Federal Communications Commission is right now considering a two-tier system for the internet that would let people and organizations pay more for faster connection speeds.

The FCC is accepting public feedback online about the proposed two-tier system.
