The spark of the protest was launched after an article in The New York Times reported that "Google" covered the cases of sexual harassment in the ranks of senior officials, including Andy Rubin, creator of the operating system, "Android" who left the group in 2014 with a compensation of 90 million dollars, which denies The charges against him.
Also, Google's parent group "Alpha" reported that Rich Deauville, chief executive of X's forward-looking business, resigned without any compensation for harassment of a woman who applied for a vacant position in the group.
The protest movement called on the company's nearly 90,000 employees to leave their offices at 11 am local time.
At the headquarters of the main group in Mountain View, California, broadcasters posted by Twitter or local channels showed thousands of workers gathered at the heart of Silicon Valley, joined by hundreds of people working on YouTube.
In a statement to the employees, the company's CEO, Sandar Bechai, stressed that he respected their right to strike.
"In recent years, Google has adopted a very strict policy on inappropriate behavior," he said. "Such moves show that we have not yet fulfilled what is needed," pledging to take concrete measures soon.
