When a company's workers are literally dying on the job, and its
"business model relies on preying on local businesses and even
their own companies, and its CEO is the richest person in the
world while its workers make minimum wage with impossible
quotas...wouldn't you want to resist? Description Danny Caine,
owner of Raven Book Store in Lawrence, Kansas, compiled this
zine about his commitment to fighting Amazon. Includes: the open
letter he wrote to Jeff Bezos, examples of successful social
media activism, links to other resources, and some sobering
words about boycotting.
