E68: This Black Friday, let’s Make Amazon Pay

For the third consecutive year, a global coalition of trade unions and political organisations, including DiEM25, will stand together against Amazon on Black Friday. This day of action will see strikes and protests take place around the world calling for an end to Amazon’s squeeze on workers, communities and the planet.

It once seemed like Amazon was simply too big to be fought effectively by workers and the Left. But recent initiatives such as Make Amazon Pay, and this year’s successful union drive in the US, have slowly but surely started to make dents in the giant corporation’s armour.

How can we use Amazon’s global presence against them to support these campaigns across borders, and what does the fight against Amazon tell us about our struggle against capitalism more broadly?

Our panel, including Yanis Varoufakis, Dusan Pajovic and Amir Kiyaei, debates. Join us live and send us your questions and comments!
