A group of Google Ads Resellers in China who were dropped by Google, staged a protest with a number of them going on a hunger strike. They are asking for an apology and a compensation of about $7 Million.
The group's representative, Fan Meiyong says that they have been working with Google to sell their ads online and for years, they have worked with Google alone. They have no idea why they were dropped by Google and their businesses are suffering as a result.
Google has had stiff competition in the search market in China and their search share keeps dropping. As a result, they have found it increasingly hard to sell ads.
Google says that when they terminate reseller contracts, they do so lawfully and according to the terms of the contract.
