An international group of climate activists and Amazon warehouse workers have launched an online campaign called “Make Amazon Pay”. The campaign is aimed at making the company provide better working conditions for its employees.

 

Make Amazon pay also will also involve the company reducing its expanding carbon footprint. “During the Covid-19 pandemic, Amazon became a trillion-dollar corporation, with CEO Jeff Bezos becoming the first person in history to amass $200 billion in personal wealth. Meanwhile, Amazon warehouse workers risked their lives as essential workers, and faced threats and intimidation if they spoke out for their rights to a fair wage,” the campaign says on its website.

 

The campaign has a list of demands. They include; raising pay for workers in Amazon’s warehouses, extending paid sick leave, and allowing workers to organize in unions.

It also wants Amazon to commit to “zero emissions by 2030“, payback society by “ending partnerships with police forces and immigration authorities that are institutionally racist” and pay its “taxes in full, in the countries where the real economic activity takes place”.

 

The campaign has quite a number of international partners. They include; Progressive International, Amazon Workers International, 350.org, Greenpeace, among others. The organisation has also planned a number of demonstrations in different countries around the world.

 

Demonstrations are to happen in the Philippines, Bangladesh, India, Germany, Poland, Spain, Luxembourg, France, Greece, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries. The “Make Amazon Pay” slogan has also been projected on Amazon buildings in London, Berlin, and Hyderabad.
