EXTINCTION Rebellion campaigners have blocked Amazon depots in Black Friday protests.
The activists are blockading a fulfilment centre in Dartford, Kent, as well as 13 other sites across the country, it’s reported.
The group posted footage of the Dartford sit-in. Six activists were seen holding aloft a banner reading ‘Black Friday exploits people and planet.’
Police are also tackling protests at an Amazon warehouse in Tilbury, Essex.
Essex Police tweeted: “We’re dealing with a protest outside an Amazon warehouse in Windrush Road, Tilbury and engaging with people at the scene to ensure it remains safe.
“However, we expect the disruption to run into the morning rush hours and we’re asking motorists to take some delays into account.
XR South East UK tweeted: “ExtinctionRebellion blockade #AMAZON fulfilment centres across the UK and Europe on #BlackFriday holding them responsible for the damage they do to #PeopleAndPlanet. #InfiniteGrowthFinitePlanet.”
But furious social media users have hit out – and say blocking roads “just annoys folk”.
Another wrote: “That’s it guys, that’ll get the public onside I’m sure.
“Nothing gets public support like stopping us getting to and from work.”
