Amazon Anonymous start new campaign

Campaign group Amazon Anonymous have got a Christmas surprise for arch tax avoiders Amazon! The've launched a new campaign asking people to pledge to boycott Amazon this Christmas.



You can sign up to the Amazon Free Challenge on the Amazon Anonymous site and show them that if they don’t pay their workers or pay their fair share of tax, you won’t pay them.

Jo from Amazon Anonymous said, 

'Amazon squeeze local shops out of business, they avoid paying their fair share in tax, and they leave their workers out in the cold with poverty pay. It's really important that we show Amazon that if they don't contribute to our society, we won't give them our money. This is Amazon's busiest time of the year, so if we all put our money where our mouth is and shop elsewhere this Christmas, we can hit them where it hurts: their pockets. That's the the best way to make Amazon listen up and pay up.'

As Amazon boycotters ourselves we know it can be hard to go cold (Christmas) turkey, but if we want Amazon to change, we need to show them we’re serious and it would be great if you could show your support.

Ethical Consumer is now working with Amazon Anonymous on a new set of alternatives guides and we'll keep you informed on their progress.
