Extinction Rebellion blocks Amazon depots including Newcastle and Darlington on Black Friday causing travel chaos

More than a dozen Amazon depots across the UK have been blocked by Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists in Black Friday protests that have caused severe disruption for drivers.

The activist group tweeted that it is blockading fulfilment centres at 13 sites across the UK, including Manchester, Bristol, Tilbury in Essex and Dartford in Kent.

Photos shared on Twitter show protestors blocking roads outside of the Amazon warehouse in Darlington and activists are also said to be targeting sites in Gateshead and Newcastle as part of the demonstration.

The protest group claims it has targeted Amazon as it holds it "responsible" for environmental damage, the Mirror Online reports.

The aim of the protest is to disrupt Amazon's business on what is one of the biggest shopping days of the year in order to force the global giant into changing its "highly climate-destructive corporate practices".

Amazon has come under criticism for the treatment of its staff, with 1,000 ambulance call-outs to its UK depots since 2018 and 178 to its Tilbury site where a worker died this month.

The impact it has on the environment by pushing and delivering cheap goods has also previously come under focus.

In 2018, Amazon emitted 44.4 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide — greater than the carbon footprint of Switzerland.

Amazon says it is on a path to powering its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 and is now the biggest corporate buyer of renewable energy in Europe and the world.

The company said it added more than 1,800 electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Vans to its EU delivery fleet, including more than 500 in the UK and works to reduce and minimise the amount of packaging materials used.

An Amazon spokeswoman said: “At Amazon, we take our responsibilities very seriously.

"That includes our commitment to being net-zero carbon by 2040 - 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement - providing excellent pay and benefits in a safe and modern work environment, and supporting the tens of thousands of British small businesses who sell on our store.

"We know there is always more to do, and we’ll continue to invent and invest on behalf of our employees, customers, small businesses and communities in the UK.

"We’re proud to have invested £32bn in the UK since 2010, creating 10,000 new permanent jobs across the country this year alone, and generating a total UK tax contribution of £1.55bn in 2020.”

Addressing the protest action, an Amazon spokeswoman said the business has a large network of sites across the UK and is working to minimise any potential disruption to customers.

It stressed that it is working with the police at Amazon sites to ensure the safety of its employees and those protesting.

The Extinction Rebellion group posted a video of the blockade at Dartford where six protesters were filmed holding up a banner saying: “Black Friday exploits people and planet.”

There were similar scenes around the country at other Amazon depots.

XR Northampton tweeted: "Amazon Milton Keynes blocked by Bedford and Northants rebels in solidarity with #MakeAmazonPay strikers and Climate Activists everywhere. #MakeAmazonPay #AmazonCrime. #ExtinctionRebellion."

Police are tackling protests at an Amazon warehouse in Tilbury, Essex, where disruption is expected to continue over the coming hours.

XR plans to stay at the Essex depot for 48 hours, where it is using concrete lock-ons, bamboo structures and a lorry to block access, while a person dressed to look like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos rides a rocket called "Amazon Crime".

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."

Activists from Extinction Rebellion block the entrance to the Amazon fulfilment centre in Tilbury, Essex, on Black Friday.

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."

Protesters arrived at a Amazon distribution centre near Bristol at 4am and have "locked on" to bamboo towers and scaffolding structures, completely blocking two access roads to the site.

A road near Manchester Airport by an Amazon depot has also been closed due to protesters.

Transport for Greater Manchester have advised motorists to seek alternative routes away from Sunbank Lane.

The protests have had a backlash on social media with people critical of the disruption, offering similar arguments as to those widely circulated when Insulate Britain campaigners blocked roads around London.

One person tweeted: "Agree with saving the climate...but you need public support to get the Government to care.

"Blocking roads just annoys folk and loses you the goodwill from the public (especially the working ones whos[e] taxes pay your benefits)."

Activists from Extinction Rebellion block the entrance to the Amazon fulfilment centre in Tilbury, Essex, on Black Friday.

Another wrote: "That it guys, that'll get the public onside I'm sure. Nothing gets public support like stopping us getting to and from work...."

Similarly, another person tweeted: "All 'done is inconvenience a lot of regular working class warehouse staff and truck drivers trying to get home or to work.

"I did not need that s*** after a 50 hour week! I agree with saving the climate but these actions are just driving folks like me away from your cause."

Amazon's own figures from 2020 reveal that the corporation's carbon emissions rose by 19% year-over-year in spite of the global shutdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, reported BristolLive.

Amazon's operations emitted the equivalent of 60.64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2020, compared to 51.17 million metric tons in 2019.

The corporation pledged in 2019 to become net-zero by 2040, but XR activists say that there is "no evidence for how that will be achieved and the pledge does not include Amazon’s supply chain".

The protests come as the Government forges ahead with its plans to significantly curtail campaigners rights to demonstrate.

It has argued a protest crackdown is needed to protect the public from severe disruption caused by the "reckless and selfish tactics" of eco-activists.

Climate change demonstrators had "overstepped the line", argued Home Office minister Baroness Williams of Trafford yesterday as she made the case for a series of changes to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill in response to action taken by Insulate Britain and others to shut down major transport networks.

These included tougher sentences for blocking motorways and roads and allowing police officers to stop and search anyone at a protest "without suspicion" for items used to prevent a person being moved, known as "locking-on".

Individuals with a history of causing serious disruption also face being banned by the courts from attending certain protests.

However, peers on the opposition benches in the House of Lords have strongly criticised the controversial measures and the way they have been introduced at such a late stage of the passage of the Bill, which has already gone through the Commons.

The provisions come on top of other contentious curbs on demonstrations proposed in the legislation, including powers to impose conditions on protests judged to be too noisy.

At least 30 arrested over Extinction Rebellion’s Amazon warehouse blockades

Extinction Rebellion protesters blockade Amazon warehouses on Black Friday 2021

Dozens of climate change protesters who who blockaded Amazon warehouses across the country on Black Friday have been arrested.

Extinction Rebellion (XR) said its demonstrations took place at sites in Doncaster, Darlington, Newcastle, Manchester, Peterborough, Derby, Coventry, Rugeley, Dartford, Bristol, Tilbury, Milton Keynes and Dunfermline.

Activists arrived in the early hours of Friday to set up bamboo structures and ‘lock-ons’, and held banners urging Amazon to cut its emissions.

Some people could also be seen wearing masks of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and setting up tents on the road as police officers began to move in.

At least 30 people have been arrested in four of the locations, police forces have confirmed.

The group, which is also drawing attention to alleged exploitation of Amazon workers, said it planned to remain at the scene for at least 48 hours.

Yesterday’s blockades were part of an international effort, targeting 15 of the online giant’s fulfilment centres in the UK, US, Germany and the Netherlands.

An XR spokesperson said: ‘The action is intended to draw attention to Amazon’s exploitative and environmentally destructive business practices, disregard for workers’ rights in the name of company profits, as well as the wastefulness of Black Friday.

‘Amazon continues to lobby the US government to fight against climate legislation while telling the public they are committed to green initiatives.

‘They are committing the very definition of greenwash.’

The spokesperson said the protests were in solidarity with activists and workers from the Make Amazon Pay campaign – demanding better working conditions, clear environmental commitments and for Amazon to pay their fair share of tax.

At the Dartford site, around 20 activists set up the blockade on a road at just before 5am.

Kent Police said it arrested five people on suspicion of aggravated trespass before they were taken into custody. The other attendees dispersed by 2.30pm.

Essex Police said 17 people were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass after a protest took place near to an Amazon depot in Tilbury.

Two men and two women were also arrested on suspicion of public nuisance at the site in Manchester.

A further four were arrested by Durham Police following a demonstration outside the Amazon depot in Darlington.

XR’s spokesperson at the Dunfermline blockade, Meg Paton-Jones, said: ‘The police have one van on site and they are watching us.

‘We started here at about 4am but are not blocking the employees’ car park so the night shift can leave. We have good vibes and music.’

Climate Change Activists Target Amazon Warehouses in Europe on Black Friday

Climate change activists have staged blockage protests at Amazon warehouses across Europe to confront the company's "environmentally destructive" business practices.

Extinction Rebellion protesters have blocked 15 Amazon fulfilment centers in the U.K, Germany and the Netherlands on the morning on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year for Amazon.

Bamboo structures, placards and "lock-ons" are being used to prevent lorries from entering the sites.

The group has targeted 13 Amazon warehouses in the U.K. claiming that these sites account for just over 50 percent of Amazon deliveries there.

The protesters said they planned to stage the protests on Black Friday as the discount day "epitomizes an obsession with overconsumption that is not consistent with a liveable planet."

Extinction Rebellion also criticized Amazon for its treatment of workers, not paying their fair share of tax, and for the wealth accumulated by its billionaire founder, Jeff Bezos.

Clarissa Carlyon, one of those taking part in the protests in Dartford, South East England, said that action is needed to "address the toxic consumerism that is driving the ecological crisis."

Carlyon added: "If we don't talk about what consumerism is doing to our planet and our society then we will not address the planetary emergency that's happening now.

Chris, a former Amazon employee from Newcastle, North East England, added: "Working at Amazon gave me first hand experience of how little the company cares about anything other than making money, and how poorly workers are treated.

"We can no longer live under a system that pushes deadly infinite growth at a time of crisis, manipulating consumers, exploiting workers and destroying the planet. Amazon's business model has enabled massive growth. As its empire grows, so does its exploitation."

The group claims that activities tied to Amazon's business emitted 60.64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2020, more than was emitted by the entirety of Denmark and the equivalent of burning through 140 million barrels of oil.

Amazon has pledged to reach so-called net zero carbon emissions by 2040, but the protesters said there is no evidence as to how it will achieve this.

In a statement to Newsweek, a spokesperson for Amazon said: "At Amazon, we take our responsibilities very seriously. That includes our commitment to be net zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement—providing excellent pay and benefits in a safe and modern work environment, and supporting the tens of thousands of British small businesses who sell on our store.

"We know there is always more to do, and we'll continue to invent and invest on behalf of our employees, customers, small businesses and communities in the U.K."

The group said they intend to stay at the sites for at least 48 hours.

Police in Essex, South East England confirmed that they are dealing with an incident at the Amazon warehouse in Tilbury and are "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," Essex Police tweeted.

Climate Change Activists Blocked UK Amazon Warehouses, 13 People Arrested

Sophie Webster, Tech Times

Amazon

More than 30 people have been arrested after climate change activists blocked Amazon warehouses in the United Kingdom on Black Friday, the busiest day of the year for the retailer.

Extinction Rebellion targeted 13 UK sites, including Amazon's largest distribution center in Dunfermline, Fife. It said it was to draw attention to alleged exploitation of Amazon workers and wasteful business practices.

Amazon said that it took its responsibilities very seriously. The campaign group was said to have blocked multiple entrances using bamboo structures, banners, and lock-on and had planned to stay for at least 48 hours.

However, a couple of the blockades were cleared by mid-afternoon. The demonstrations began at 4PM at the Dunfermline warehouse, where about 20 activists stopped lorries entering the site and some from leaving.

Protests hit Amazon on Black Friday

The group also targeted sites in Doncaster, Darlington; Altrincham, Greater Manchester; Gateshead; Peterborough; East Midlands Airport, Leicestershire; Coventry; Rugeley, Staffordshire; Dartford, Kent; Bristol; Tilbury, Essex; and at Ridgmont, close to junction 13 of the M1 in Bedfordshire.

A spokesman said that the action is intended to draw attention to Amazon's exploitative and environmentally destructive business practices, disregard for workers' rights in the name of company profits, as well as the wastefulness of Black Friday, according to BBC.

Among those affected by the blockade was haulage firm J R Dixon, based in Workington, Cumbria, which said that one of its drivers was unable to leave the depot in Tilbury.

Phil Clarke, from the firm, said it meant the driver might not be able to get to Warrington for deliveries or get home for the weekend. He said that the knock-on effect of these protests is harming businesses and people's private lives.

Protesters at Rugeley said that it was non-violent action, and there were about eight people on a bamboo structure, two on top and six on the concrete structure at the bottom, according to CNBC.

Protesters Revealed Amazon's Unfair Work Culture

Alice Martin, part of the group, said that they wanted to highlight Amazon's use of loopholes to avoid tax and its destruction of unsold products, including electronic items, according to Reuters.

Martin said that they also have witnesses and people working inside that have been reporting workers being exploited, being on difficult shifts for long hours with low wages, so that is all the things that they want to highlight.

A 22-year old protester, Nathan McGovern, was stationed in Coventry. He said that he and fellow protesters were disrupting and stopping any lorries from exiting and entering this facility. He said that they did this, because of Amazon's complicity and contribution to the climate crisis.

McGovern said that they were hoping to stay for 48 hours, but it was up to individuals if they wanted to stay for that entire time.

In Darlington, an unnamed protester said that they were aware they had upset quite a few people today, but they had lobbied their MPs, and had tried using usual avenues and nothing is changing.

Extinction Rebellion said the blockade was part of an international action that would also target Amazon fulfillment centers in the US, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Last year, protesters rallied outside Amazon's former CEO Jeff Bezos' mansion over the unfair wages of its employees.

Lost Amazon drivers are wreaking havoc on a village in Kent by mistaking cottages for their new distribution centre

Lost Amazon drivers are wreaking havoc in the Kentish countryside by mistaking quaint cottages for its new distribution centre.

Confused HGV drivers are having to knock on villagers’ doors to ask for directions and reverse their lorries down narrow country lanes to find the 34,000 square metre warehouse.

Residents were mistakenly asked to sign for building materials and air conditioning compartments before the depot opened last month, as suppliers failed to navigate the winding roads in Hoo, Kent.

Emma Lawrence, who lives near the site, said the situation is “getting ridiculous” after 20 lorries turned up at her address within a week.

Lorries are struggling to find the new Amazon depot in Hoo, Kent

‘Do I look like an Amazon warehouse?’

“Drivers are knocking on people’s doors saying ‘I’ve got industrial hoovers’ and they’re like, ‘Do I look like an Amazon warehouse?'” she said.

“I’m telling so many lorries to go back the other way, it’s getting ridiculous.

“I saw about 20 lorries last week and that was just in daylight hours, but you get them at night too – it’s just constant.”

Villagers said drivers are missing the correct turn-off from the highway and blamed poor road signage on the approach to the Amazon warehouse.

It has been particularly bad from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday.

The warehouse has been particularly busy during the Black Friday sales

Constant lorries are becoming a nightmare for residents

But resident Marie Bennett, whose property is nearest the new site, said the mix-up began when Amazon began using the same postcode as her cottage – which is accessed via a different route.

The 48-year-old, who owns a water utility company with her husband, said: “It’s been a complete nightmare and an utter nuisance.

“The lorries are still going past – two have turned up again this morning.

“My house is the only one on the street that shares the same postcode as the Amazon building – my husband looked it up online.

“First of all we were getting deliveries of air conditioning pieces when they were building the depot.

“Now we have great big lorries turning up and they have to reverse back past the house.

“It’s narrow and it’s a sharp bend – when is this thing going to stop?”

Marie Bennett can no longer ride her horses on the roads, because it's too dangerous

Medway Council has put up temporary yellow signs at roundabouts directing drivers to the depot but Marie said the lorries still seem to be following their sat navs which direct them to her front door.

‘Before all this traffic it was very quiet, but now it is so dangerous’

The frustrated resident is “at her wits end” and has even stopped riding her horses on the roads in fear of her safety.

Ms Bennett said: “I own three horses, one of which I do endurance riding on.

“It is imperative I am able to ride my horse on the roads around here as I need to train and there are very little in the way of bridleways in this area.

Lorries are having to reverse down narrow country lanes like this one

“Before all this traffic it was very quiet and I had no problem, but now it is so dangerous.

“I won’t take my horse out now in fear of coming across one of these lorries.”

Amazon said it is working with the council to enhance the signage close to the site and hauliers have been reminded of the correct postcode.

The force said officers left the scene there at about 16:45.

Amazon's warehouse in Bristol reopened by 14:00 and police were also called to protests at Coventry and Ridgmont.

Extinction Rebellion blocks Amazon depots including Newcastle and Darlington on Black Friday causing travel chaos

More than a dozen Amazon depots across the UK have been blocked by Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists in Black Friday protests that have caused severe disruption for drivers.

The activist group tweeted that it is blockading fulfilment centres at 13 sites across the UK, including Manchester, Bristol, Tilbury in Essex and Dartford in Kent.

Photos shared on Twitter show protestors blocking roads outside of the Amazon warehouse in Darlington and activists are also said to be targeting sites in Gateshead and Newcastle as part of the demonstration.

Go here for the very latest breaking news updates from across the North East

The protest group claims it has targeted Amazon as it holds it "responsible" for environmental damage, the Mirror Online reports.

The aim of the protest is to disrupt Amazon's business on what is one of the biggest shopping days of the year in order to force the global giant into changing its "highly climate-destructive corporate practices".

Amazon has come under criticism for the treatment of its staff, with 1,000 ambulance call-outs to its UK depots since 2018 and 178 to its Tilbury site where a worker died this month.

The impact it has on the environment by pushing and delivering cheap goods has also previously come under focus.

In 2018, Amazon emitted 44.4 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide — greater than the carbon footprint of Switzerland.

Amazon says it is on a path to powering its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 and is now the biggest corporate buyer of renewable energy in Europe and the world.

The company said it added more than 1,800 electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Vans to its EU delivery fleet, including more than 500 in the UK and works to reduce and minimise the amount of packaging materials used.

An Amazon spokeswoman said: “At Amazon, we take our responsibilities very seriously.

"That includes our commitment to being net-zero carbon by 2040 - 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement - providing excellent pay and benefits in a safe and modern work environment, and supporting the tens of thousands of British small businesses who sell on our store.

"We know there is always more to do, and we’ll continue to invent and invest on behalf of our employees, customers, small businesses and communities in the UK.

"We’re proud to have invested £32bn in the UK since 2010, creating 10,000 new permanent jobs across the country this year alone, and generating a total UK tax contribution of £1.55bn in 2020.”

Addressing the protest action, an Amazon spokeswoman said the business has amazon warehouse kent large network of sites across the UK and is working to minimise any potential disruption to customers.

It stressed that it is working with the police at Amazon sites to ensure the safety of its employees and those protesting.

The Extinction Rebellion group posted a video of the blockade at Dartford where six protesters were filmed holding up a banner saying: “Black Friday exploits people and planet.”

There were similar scenes around the country at other Amazon depots.

XR Northampton tweeted: "Amazon Milton Keynes blocked by Bedford and Northants rebels in solidarity with #MakeAmazonPay strikers and Climate Activists everywhere. #MakeAmazonPay #AmazonCrime. #ExtinctionRebellion."

Police are tackling protests at an Amazon warehouse in Tilbury, Essex, where disruption is expected to continue over the coming hours.

XR plans to stay at the Essex depot for 48 hours, where it is using concrete lock-ons, bamboo structures and a lorry to block access, while a person dressed to look like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos rides a rocket called "Amazon Crime".

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."

Activists from Extinction Rebellion block the entrance to the Amazon fulfilment centre in Tilbury, Essex, on Black Friday.

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."

Protesters arrived at a Amazon distribution centre near Bristol at 4am and have "locked on" to bamboo towers and scaffolding structures, completely blocking two access roads to the site.

A road near Manchester Airport by an Amazon depot has also been closed due to protesters.

Transport for Greater Manchester have advised motorists to seek alternative routes away from Sunbank Lane.

The protests have had a backlash on social media with people critical of the disruption, offering similar arguments as to those widely circulated when Insulate Britain campaigners blocked roads around London.

One person tweeted: "Agree with saving the climate.but you need public support to get the Government to care.

"Blocking roads just annoys folk and loses you the goodwill from the public (especially the working ones whos[e] taxes pay your benefits)."

Activists from Extinction Rebellion block the entrance to the Amazon fulfilment centre in Tilbury, Essex, on Black Friday.

Another wrote: "That it guys, that'll get the public onside I'm sure. Nothing gets public support like stopping us getting to and from work."

Similarly, another person tweeted: "All 'done is inconvenience a lot of regular working class warehouse staff and truck drivers trying to get home or to work.

"I did not need that s*** after a 50 hour week! I agree with saving the climate but these actions are just driving folks like me away from your cause."

Amazon's own figures from 2020 reveal that the corporation's carbon emissions rose by 19% year-over-year in spite of the global shutdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, reported BristolLive.

Amazon's operations emitted the equivalent of 60.64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2020, compared to 51.17 million metric tons in 2019.

The corporation pledged in 2019 to become net-zero by 2040, but XR activists say that there is "no evidence for how that will be achieved and the pledge does not include Amazon’s supply chain".

The protests come as the Government forges ahead with its plans to significantly curtail campaigners rights to demonstrate.

It has argued a protest crackdown is needed to protect the public from severe disruption caused by the "reckless and selfish tactics" of eco-activists.

Climate change demonstrators had "overstepped the line", argued Home Office minister Baroness Williams of Trafford yesterday as she made the case for a series of changes to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill in response to action taken by Insulate Britain and others to shut down major transport networks.

These included tougher sentences for blocking motorways and roads and allowing police officers to stop and search anyone at a protest "without suspicion" for items used to prevent a person being moved, known as "locking-on".

Individuals with a history of causing serious disruption also face being banned by the courts from attending certain protests.

However, peers on the opposition benches in the House of Lords have strongly criticised the controversial measures and the way they have been introduced at such a late stage of the passage of the Bill, which has already gone through the Commons.

The provisions come on top of other contentious curbs on demonstrations proposed in the legislation, including powers to impose conditions on protests judged to be too noisy.

At least 30 arrested over Extinction Rebellion’s Amazon warehouse blockades

Extinction Rebellion protesters blockade Amazon warehouses on Black Friday 2021

Dozens of climate change protesters who who blockaded Amazon warehouses across the country on Black Friday have been arrested.

Extinction Rebellion (XR) said its demonstrations took place at sites in Doncaster, Darlington, Newcastle, Manchester, Peterborough, Derby, Coventry, Rugeley, Dartford, Bristol, Tilbury, Milton Keynes and Dunfermline.

Activists arrived in the early hours of Friday to set up bamboo structures and ‘lock-ons’, and held banners urging Amazon to cut its emissions.
