Thousands Of Amazon Employees Walk Off The Job Today As Part Of Mass Protest To Impact Black Friday Sales

Thousands of Amazon employees have walked off the job today, as a part of a mass protest to impact sales on Black Friday.

A small demonstration was organised by climate activists outside its Dublin office this afternoon.

The “Make Amazon Pay” campaign aims to pressurise the company to reduce its carbon footprint.

Campaigner Manuel Salazar says they’re calling for tighter legislation around data centres in Ireland:

“They have been granted permission to have two data centres over here in Ireland, and that will contribute to basically the taking of energy of 4% of the country, which is a really high high toll. It is very detrimental for the environment and Amazon and their practices are not sustainable at all. That’s what it is”.
