CORRECTED: Microsoft workers demand it drop $480 million U.S. Army contract
The organising effort, described to Reuters by three Microsoft workers, offers the latest example in the last year of tech employees protesting cooperation with governments on emerging technologies. Microsoft won a contract in November to supply the Army with at least 2,500 prototypes of augmented reality headsets, which digitally displays contextual information in front of a user's eyes.

Trump news - LIVE: House resolution to overturn national emergency introduced as president tells African-Americans ‘look at the progress you've made'
House Democrats have filed their "resolution of disapproval" challenging Donald Trump‘s decision to call a national emergency in order to build a wall on the US southern border with Mexico.
