'Tax Amazon' and Anti-Police Brutality Protesters Occupy City Hall in Seattle

Demonstrators flooded Seattle City Hall on June 9 to protest police brutality and racism and to call for action on tax avoidance by Amazon and other major corporations, as seen in this footage from the Tax Amazon movement.

In the video, protesters can be heard chanting “Tax, tax, tax Amazon." The NGO Fair Tax Mark named Amazon as the business with the “poorest tax conduct” in a report from December 2019. The protesters also called for the resignation of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

Durkan had been criticized for her leadership during ongoing protests for racial justice in the city. City council members voiced frustrations with the police response to protests on Monday, local media reported. Credit: Tax Amazon via Storyful
