Thousands of Amazon employees have walked off the job today, as a part of a mass protest.

Workers across the world want better pay and conditions and are protesting during one of the company’s busiest days for traffic.

A small demonstration was organised by climate activists outside its office in Dublin this afternoon.

The “Make Amazon Pay” campaign aims to pressurise the company to reduce its carbon footprint.

Campaigners are also calling for tighter legislation on data centres in Ireland.
