Dozens of climate change activists from the environmental group 'Friends of the Earth' were joined by yellow vest activists at Amazon's headquarters in Clichy, a northwestern suburb of Paris on Tuesday, as they forced their way into the building and blocked the entrance as a protest against the e-commerce company's tax policies and its impact on climate change.
Over 140 campaigners reportedly... Еще took part in the protest, which accuses Amazon of being a «vanguard of a world we do not want, a world that will be unlivable for hundreds of millions of people in the future» according to Alma Dufour, a 'Friends of the Earth' spokesperson.
Footage from the scene shows activists forcing their way into the compound of the building, before blocking the entrance by sitting in front of the main doors and chanting slogans. Protesters then made their way inside the building, where they continued chanting. The glass-wall facade of the building was also pasted with anti-Amazon posters.
Amazon is meeting resistance around the country bolstered by the yellow vest protests against the firm, which reportedly employs 7,500 permanent workers at 20 sites throughout the country and has plans for further expansion.
