In what one news outlet called a declaration of war, more than 400 lawmakers from 35 countries publicly called out Amazon and CEO Jeff Bezos in an open letter. The lawmakers who signed the letter include US Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Keith Ellison, and Ro Khanna, and Jamaal Bowman. They pledged to support the movement against Amazon in their places of work. The letter accused the online retailer of underpaying taxes, intimidating and underpaying workers, and contributing to climate change.
"Mr. Bezos, We, elected representatives, legislators, and public officials from around the world, hereby put you on notice that Amazon's days of impunity are over," the lawmakers wrote.
