Car caravan gathers at Lake Merritt BART Parking Lot | 8th and Oak Streets, Oakland
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join the bike and car caravan to support the Alabama Amazon Workers’ union drive. March 20 is the International Day of Solidarity. The caravan will start at 1 p.m. at Lake Merritt BART Parking Lot, travel to several Oakland Amazon hubs and then end at Snow Park, 19th and Harrison at 2:30 p.m. for a rally.
These predominantly Black workers who have in recent months formed the BAmazon Workers Union, are on the cusp of launching a history-changing workers organization against one of the biggest and most powerful transnational corporations in the world, and its super rich union busting owner, Jeff Bezos. In addition, these workers are standing up to the racist, anti-union laws that suppress labor across the South.
Solidarity from every corner of the labor and progressive movements is needed now to show the workers in Bessemer that they are not alone, that all eyes are on the historic struggle that they are leading. This is especially needed as Amazon ramps up their union-busting tactics.
