Online giant Amazon is facing a protest at its London office today over accusations of mistreatment of workers and tax avoidance.

A new campaign group called Amazon Anonymous is organising the protest at 1pm today at its Holborn office.

Amazon Anonymous is acting as a hub for anti-Amazon activism as it aims to illustrate “the human cost of Amazon’s business model”.

Emily Kenway, who founded Amazon Anonymous, started a petition in December to make the retailer pay the living wage, which has attracted over 55,000 signatures.

GMB national organiser Martin Smith said: “At the moment Amazon only offers “jobs of last resort” to the communities where they build their warehouses.

“GMB - the trade union for Amazon staff - is campaigning with local communities, tax justice campaigners and Amazon staff to make sure the company makes its full contribution to rebuilding the UK economy - both by paying wages its staff can live on and by paying its taxes.
