Because "We've Seen This Before," Never Again Action Protesters Shut Down Amazon Offices in Boston

For a long time, latinos from south of the border would find jobs in the US from unscrupulous employers who were all too happy to pay cash under the counter. And for all those years, progressives tried to have that stopped. However, conservative republican politicians were all to happy side with the employers and not do anything about it. Now, those same politicians are trying to pretend they are anti-immigrant and pretending to act like they are protecting US jobs for US citizens. What two faced hypocrites they are! Well, those conservatives opened Pandora’s box and we are dealing with it today.

History is replaying itself and the tape is running backwards towards
fascism once again –

We must support this struggle against ICE and the evil of it we can all
clearly see – and as the Jewish demonstrators are warning of –

Every American citizen now must take on the responsibility to become
our journalists, reporters and photographers on the scene –

Because in reality we have no free press.

See: Operation Mockingbird, drafted by Cord Meyer/CIA in 1943.

Note: Catholics were also demonstrating against ICE and the camps in New Jersey
this past week. Led by Cardinal Tobin. Article in NJ newspaper, but no link.
But here are a number of reports from a search page …

Nobody in a position to DO SOMETHING heard them then or hears them (us) now. TPTB hide in their ivory towers and snub their noses at those of us who chose love instead of hate. Hatred is being rewarded, peace is held in contempt. It is WAY past time for us to hit the streets in massive numbers.

Amazon is an affront to, and in violation of anti-trust laws, small business, and a threat to much else as well - FDR spoke strongly of the grave threat of such power! A warning our corrupt political failures are ignoring and/or forgetting!

The racist collusion between the trump regime and the amazon/bezos monstrosity is seen in their business practices and latest utterly reprehensible anti-Venezuela propaganda film that must have a strong trump war-machine component!

Coupled with bezos political platform of WAPO, that he should be forced to divest - that much control of political and business interests as well as vast wealth and its ability to buy whatever is undemocratic and a threat that should not be tolerated form any person or group!!

“The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism – ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power… Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.” - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

The trump regime is waging war against Venezuela and its people, causing premeditated economic collapse, fomenting an undemocratic coup, threatening the lives, health and safety of millions, attacked Venezuela in many ways. The amazon pure propaganda film is a pathetic excuse for any film and is especially egregious in its political demonization of Venezuela and its people!.

Break-up Amazon (and facebook)! Boycott, Divest, and Protest the antitrust violations, jingoist rubbish film, and de facto fascism!

Let’s not forget that but for a handful of members of Congress even bothering to go down to the border ( AOC, and others). The democratic leadership hasn’t done shit. The truth is that the Democrats have aided and abetted for years. They are as much evil as Amazon. I say camp outside those M@th#r f$@kers houses. They are as discusting as Trump and his fascists. Pelosi and Schumer will roast in hell with Trump.

Wouldn’t be surprised if there is an agreement between Amazon and the government. Help us destroy these vermin at our borders and we make sure these nasty tariffs don’t impact your bottom line.

Thank you –
Trust that more religious organizations will be sending out protesters.
