Here’s a thing, many of us are drowning in boxes.
Some places have rules regarding cardboard recycling.

It would be trivial for Amazon to buy and brand cardboard pick up trucks.
People would like it and I’d like it.
Win-win.

Brave of them, going head to head with the Area 51 invasion.

It’s actually the Earth Strike, which has been working with Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion, but was always it’s own thing.

It was supposed to be on the 27th September, but it was moved in the UK when another high profile group in Britain decided to hold a strike on the 20th, and it was decided that splitting the movement over a disagreement of dates was counter-productive.

The strike was first, even after the localised change of dates.

Yes, 900 highly replaceable people striking is going to fix it just fine. Chevron needs to go on strike.
