amazon run a ‘prime day’ promotion on 15 / 16 July. this is a great opportunity to show solidarity with workers in a simple and practical way by avoiding amazon and it’s associated sites.
don’t buy anything from Amazon or use any of their services on 15 July at a minimum to support striking workers, as per this article: https://gizmodo.com/amazon-workers-plan-to-strike-on-prime-day-1836186702
similarly, here’s a call from workers at other sites who are considering walking out, so consider this a general call for solidarity: https://www.reddit.com/r/FASCAmazon/comments/c9w38f/any_us_amazon_employees_want_to_skip_work_for/
as per last year’s strike, please try to keep in mind the following services are also amazon-owned, and so should be avoided on 15 / 16 July:
- Whole Foods
- any Fire gadgets
obviously, as discussed in the previous year’s thread, Amazon Web Services are so widely used they’re damn near impossible to avoid, but try your best if you can.
here’s a great article aggregating reasons to avoid Amazon and to support solidarity actions:
keep in mind that the pledge to pay $15/hour was directly linked to the strike and solidarity actions last year, so every little helps.
i’m not seeing a lot of Amazon strike actions elsewhere, but if you find any, post them up here!
