They have Amazon in their sights. Attack 22 fighters are after Jeff Bezos’ company. The e-commerce giant, according to them, is one of the players in overconsumption. They also suspect the US company of tax evasion and greenwashing. For all these reasons, the fighters of the Attac 22 decided to block, on Saturday, from 10 am to 12 noon, the Amazon “mailboxes” installed in the Leclerc shopping center in Blairen. “This is where people who have ordered from Amazon come to pick up their parcels. We will therefore take the opportunity to make them aware of everything we denounce, “explains Pierre Etienne, spokesman for Attac 22. In 2019, they have already implemented a similar process.
“Amazon sold 15 billion products in France. This e-commerce giant is destroying jobs domestically. For example, we estimate that setting up 20 new warehouses in France, like the one opened in Briec near Quimper, destroys 100,000 jobs.”
In addition, Attac 22 of course denounces the impact of e-commerce on the environment with a carbon footprint that increases every year, “nearly 40% between 2019 and 2021”.
