Like all of you, we are horrified and outraged at the heinous anti-Asian, anti-woman, anti-migrant worker murders that took place in Atlanta earlier this week. We encourage actions planned this weekend to acknowledge and remember the victims of this racist attack, whether it be through a moment of silence or take another form, and uplift the banner of working class solidarity.
In addition to being a day of solidarity actions with Bessemer Amazon workers, March 20 is also the U.N. Anti-Racism Day. Virginia Rodino, the Maryland President of Asian-Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA) and the national convener of United Against Hate, shared these remarks connecting the Atlanta murders to the upcoming weekend of action.
Nearly 50 actions are planned from coast to coast this weekend, in large cities and small towns alike, to mobilize solidarity for the majority Black workers fighting to form the first U.S. union at Amazon in Bessemer, Alabama.
Find a March 20 action near you on the list below or by visiting our website. With less than 2 weeks until mail-in voting for union representation ends in Bessemer and Amazon wages a relentless anti-union campaign, these actions come at a critical time.
And because Amazon operates internationally, so too must be our struggle. On Monday, March 22, Amazon workers throughout Italy will stage a one-day strike to protest the company’s unwillingness to seriously negotiate with the unions that represent Italian Amazon workers. We are in solidarity with them!
As you make final preparations for activities this weekend, please take a look at the website to find:
And please remember to take photos and videos, and do the following:
- tag @BAmazonUnion and @SupportAmazonWorkers on social media
- send them in after your action to firstname.lastname@example.org
Doing the above will help to ensure that we can compile and share all the broad solidarity mobilizing with Bessemer, Alabama Amazon workers this weekend.
All out for BAmazon Union! Fight racism and union busting!
