Demonstrators March in New York to Protest Amazon Relationship With ICE

Protesters marched down 5th Ave in New York on Monday, July 15, to call on Amazon to end its relationship with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The protest was one of several across the country at the start of Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sale, amid reports of nationwide ICE raids.

Activists have criticized Amazon Web Services, Amazon’s cloud-computing subsidiary, for using servers to host Palantir, the Silicon Valley data mining company that enables ICE to carry out deportations.

Protesters held signs and chanted “Amazon stop working with ICE.” Protesters also gathered in front of 212 5th Ave, which is reported to house a condo owned by Jeff Bezos. Credit: @dslookkin via Storyful
