Extinction Rebellion blockade Amazon warehouses on Black Friday

Three sites in the Midlands including the Derby facility Near East Midlands Airport, and 12 more across the UK are being targeted by the climate activists this morning.

A spokesperson said:

‘Amazon is responsible for a long list of widely recognised “crimes” – from tax avoidance to the exploitation of workers, to rampant wastefulness and ecological destruction.

‘The pressure on Amazon workers led to 115 ambulances being called to the Amazon site in Rugeley

‘Amazon’s business model is based on manipulating overconsumption. It’s rate of growth is phenomenal but catastrophic at a time of imminent ecological collapse.
