San Jose Appoves Sale of Land to Google

San Jose city leaders on Wednesday approved a roughly 11-acre land sale to Google that paves the path for the tech giant's proposed downtown development.

The unanimous vote of approval did not come without objection as protesters interrupted city council proceedings late Tuesday, prompting a response from police.

Public comments lasted for hours Tuesday evening before the protesters interrupted the meeting. Eight of the protesters chained themselves to seats, and police had to use bolt cutters to break them free. All eight were arrested and charged with disrupting a public meeting.

The council reconvened and continued its discussion of the issue into the early morning hours Wednesday and voted around 12:30 a.m.
