Amazon employees are going to strike over the firmís climate policies

On 20 September, more than 1,000 Amazon staffers will walk out of their offices to demand action. Rebecca Sheppard is one of the strikeís organizersSince late last year, a group of workers within Amazon have been organizing to push the company to radically reduce its carbon emissions.
