"Amazon workers are striking" doesn't tell the whole story.
Workers in Germany, Spain, and Poland are striking for two full days, beginning at 12:00 AM local time Monday and extending to 11:59PM local time Tuesday.
Additionally, workers in Minnesota, USA are striking from 2-8 PM on Monday. (This allows both day and evening shift to participate.)
Many Amazon workers are NOT striking, including some of the workers at the MN plant where the US strike is happening.
I bring this up because we should frame this boycott not in terms of crossing a picket line, which is a simple, easy-to-communicate visual but does little to foster actual empathy - but in terms of solidarity with the striking workers. And in addition to just staying off Amazon sites, express your solidarity by reading up, for instance, on WHY the US strike is only 6 hours long and why not everyone is participating.

@noelle do you have a source on the last point?
re: Amazon 2/2
@noelle They put me on a 90-day furlough for 'only' hitting 98% of metrics one week. Despite having just increased said metrics by 10% (and a total of 230% over where they originally were).
All solidarity is greatly appreciated.
@noelle so they're scabs
