    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.
