Greece's former economist and finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, called on consumers to promote a one-day boycott of Amazon on Black Friday, while some unions, environmental activists and campaigners in favor of data protection for boycott actions on Amazon websites and supply chain, The Guardian writes this Thursday.
In a video posted online, Varoufakis asked consumers not to access Amazon's website on Black Friday - the most profitable day of the year for retail, which this year falls on 27 November.
"By boycotting Amazon, it is strengthening an international coalition of workers and activists," said the former Greek ruler. “Amazon is not a mere company or a monopoly mega company. It is much more and much worse than that. It is the pillar of the new techno-feudalism ”.
