When Google corrupts your politicians, your schools (#GSuite), your newspapers (#GNI), your web, your emails, your universities, .., you expect ".org"s like the #FSFE to be your last resort and to defend you.

But when you discover that also the FSFE is financed by Google (2013-2020), it is finally time to #panic:

fsfe.org/donate/thankgnus.en.h

#rms & #FSF fought #Google even in court:
gnu.org/proprietary/malware-go
fsf.org/licensing/google-book-

Is the @fsfe in the position to do the same?
