Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Activists set up guillotine in front of Jeff Bezos' D.C. residence, demand Amazon be abolished”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A group of protesters erected a small guillotine in front of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' Washington, D.C., residence over the weekend, during an event calling for the abolishment of Amazon along with "the police" and "the prisons."

Reporter Drew Hernandez posted video online Sunday showing footage of a demonstration purportedly held in front of Bezos' "complex." One speaker can be seen telling the gathering, "when they become threatened, and we have no voice, the knives come out."

A poster placed in front of the guillotine read, "Support our poor communities, not our wealthy men."

The demonstration was organized by a group calling themselves "Abolish the Present. Reconstruct our future."

A promotional flyer for the event read, "Amazon works directly with police to surveil us, stoking racist fears in the name of profit. Doubling down on their union busting and mistreatment of workers, Amazon fired and racially slandered labor organizer Chris Smalls. Join us to tell Jeff Bezos enough is enough!"
