March 20th: International Day of Solidarity with Amazon workers
March 20th is the international day of solidarity with Amazon workers! It is also the United Nations’ World Day Against Racism. Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama, are fighting to form a union. These workers are predominantly Black and largely women and continue to be exploited by Jeff Bezos and his capitalist ilk at Amazon. Bezos and his crew continue to harass workers struggling for their rights, paying thousands of dollars a day to crush the attempted union, intimidating workers, holding meetings discouraging unionizing, and many more cruel tactics that violate worker’s rights. This is a Black Lives Matter issue because these workers are mostly Black and continue to have their rights not just as workers, but as human beings — violated by one of the world’s largest companies. Black workers are making it clear that they will not tolerate the racist, classist, sexist abuse against them! Across the country and the world, supporters of the workers in Bessemer will come out on March 20th to tell Bezos and his crew to quit union busting and that we wholeheartedly support Amazon workers unionizing! Join the demonstration initiated by ATL Amazon Workers Support Network, the Atlanta North Georgia Labor Council, and the Atlanta Coalition of Black Trade Unionists outside of Atlanta near Amazon ATL6. We will be across from the mall entrance to show our solidarity with Amazon workers struggling to unionize and win their rights!
