Alt-right protesters are planning a "March On Google" next week, following the US tech giant's firing of an employee over his internal company memo discussing gender differences in the workforce, the media reported.

Far right Internet activist Jack Posobiec and "a coalition of free speech activists around the US" organised the march, according to the official "MarchOnGoogle" site.

"We are going to raise awareness about Google's one-sided bias and campaign against dissenting opinions and voices," Posobiec told the media on Thursday.

The marches will take place "anywhere Google has an office" including Austin, Boston, New York City, Mountain View, and Washington D.C., reports The Hill magazine.

"Google is a monopoly, and it's abusing its power to silence dissent and manipulate election results," says the website.

"Their company YouTube is censoring and silencing dissenting voices by creating "ghettos" for videos questioning the dominant narrative. We will thus be Marching on Google!"
