Google means free of censorship and the ability to share things across the Web/Internet freely when they are saying 'free and open'.

Google doesn't want anyone having control over the internet except for Google. Hence their stance.

Internets depend on millions of people all over the world to even exist. All parts that together make the thing must comply to local laws. If a country wants to screw people over, no one's going to change it ever. Google is going for their own agenda at best - not caring about anything else than continuing to increase shareholder value by keeping its business model as intact as possible, and political influence at worst, like it doesn't have enough of that already. And it's something that must not be allowed. Though people are gullible, they always need their imaginary freedom fighters and heroes that spit battle cries against the evil system. Unfortunately, amidst all the struggle and casualties no one has ever created a better system than its predecessor, and at the end of the day new freedom fighters have always risen to bring down the very foundation they had helped to build.

Google is interested in a free (as in freedom) and open web because that's the best playground for their business. If governments or any other third party start setting up barriers for users, that'll make it harder for Google to collect info and profit from targeted advertisement.

Nothing is totally free. You may not see it but there is a catch in there somewhere.
