BREAKING NEWS: XR has blocked 13 of Amazon’s biggest fulfilment centres around the UK, as well as some in the Netherlands and Germany, in a Black Friday action. We’re taking a stand against one of the world’s biggest companies, its exploitative business model and the destructive system it represents.
Amazon is committing crimes against the planet and its people. From exploiting its workers and avoiding tax, to sending billionaires into space for fun and emitting the same amount of carbon as a country the size of Denmark – Amazon is responsible for untold crimes.
Read the press release HERE with a full list of Amazon’s Crimes.
Watch the livestream HERE with a view of all the sites around the UK.
This action today is also in solidarity with the Make Amazon Pay campaign where workers and activists are rising up in strikes and protests in oil refineries, factories, warehouses, data centres, and corporate offices in countries across the world.
