A live debate hosted by Berlin vs. Amazon
We are debating: shall we call for a boycott of Amazon? While Bezos rakes in billions in profits through the ongoing Corona crisis, Amazon workers are struggling in grueling conditions and getting fired for organizing much-needed collective actions and strikes.
We at Berlin vs Amazon are asking ourselves – beyond being in solidarity with workers, what else can consumers do to fight this international giant? With so many people reliant on Amazon, using the boycott as a tactic may or may not be a productive way to support workers and a more just society.
We invite you to a live debate highlighting the pros and cons of such a boycott, and what actions we can take as individual consumers, as workers and as urban residents.
We will also hear perspectives from Amazon workers, local neighborhood activists, and fellow anti-Amazon activists.
