The Swedish teenage activist, Greta Thunberg, 17, has revealed that she is honoured by the fact that US Internet commerce giant Amazon considers her environmental activism a threat to their business.
The activist has turned to Twitter, calling on the company to reconsider its priorities.
We're very honoured by this!— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) November 26, 2020
But in all fairness @amazon , if you consider schoolchildren fighting for the right to a safe future to be a "threat to your business", then you seriously need to reconsider your priorities...#FridaysForFuture https://t.co/EO49WeFrdI
Leaked internal Amazon reports obtained by VICE's Motherboard, a media outlet, has revealed that the company had hired personnel from Pinkerton detective agency to monitor social justice groups, including Greta Thunberg's Fridays4future.
Pinkerton is a private US security agency known for infiltrating labour unions to thwart strikes in the late 19th and early 20th century, which is now a division of Securitas AB, a security services, monitoring, consulting and investigation group, based in Stockholm, Sweden.
