Why do Chinese Facebook employees protest?

The core cause is the death of Chinese engineer Qin Chen.

On September 19, the 38-year-old Chinese employee jumped from the fourth floor of Facebook's Silicon Valley headquarters park and died.

It was further revealed that, Qin Chen was a graduate of Grade 99 Electrical Engineering and Automation of Zhejiang University. Last year, Facebook, entered the Facebook, because of heavy work pressure, superior pressure and transfer group resistance and so on.

Moreover, according to other Facebook employees, Qin Chen works hard and has family pressure in middle age. It is the pillar of family life in the United States, but it has no way to go through the unfairness and bullying of its superiors.

So in September 26th, the Chinese travelled to FB to protest against the need for a level playing field.

Well-known at Facebook.


The slogans and banners are very clear:

  • One is to ask Facebook to disclose the truth about the death of Qin Chen;
  • The second is to give hardworking engineers a healthier and more equitable workplace environment.

Yin Yi, who was fired, was the person who took the lead in shouting slogans on the spot and dared to wear his Facebook label publicly.


Are you protesting too much?

Facebook needs to tell us what happened, what happened to him at work, what happened a week ago, and Facebook knows all about it.

The protesters also registered on social media called

So is that too much? Is it time to dismiss employees who participated in protests?

Faced with the protests, Facebook's director of corporate communications came to the scene and said in an interview with the media that suicide is the result of a combination of factors, and workplace bullying may not be the only cause of his death.

In a statement to the media, Facebook said:

We were saddened by the loss of staff Qin Chen at the headquarters of the city last week due to suicide. During this period, we are doing our best to support his family and relatives.

All our actions are directed by the world's leading external experts in suicide prevention. We are very concerned about our employees, provide on-site counselling to our employees and employees who sign up with the company, and provide mental health and suicide prevention support to all employees.

Finally, we unite communities by creating security spaces and sharing them openly through our internal resource groups.

The Facebook also responded to questions about bullying and other aspects of the work:

Facebook does not tolerate abuse, bullying or other acts of intimidation or aggression by employees or others covered by this policy, whether or not they fall into the protected category.

If an employee is found to have abused his or her colleagues, we will take appropriate measures to stop this behavior.

However, people have different faces.

Yin Yi, an Facebook employee who took part in the protest and disclosed his identity, quickly warned and eventually fired.
