Greta Thunberg, a young, iconic eco-activist said that she felt “honoured” that the retail giant Amazon considered her environmental activism as a threat to their business. The 17 year old is a tireless campaigner who brings awareness of the disastrous affects of climate change worldwide.
The young activist asked Amazon to “reconsider its priorities” following leaked reports that showed its “obsessive monitoring of organized labor and social and environmental movements.”
Leaked internal reports dated 2019 show that the giant retailer kept tabs on social justice groups including Thunberg’s Fridays4future climate group.
We’re very honoured by this!
But in all fairness @amazon , if you consider schoolchildren fighting for the right to a safe future to be a “threat to your business”, then you seriously need to reconsider your priorities…#FridaysForFuture https://t.co/EO49WeFrdI

Fridays4future is a student group. It consists of students who skip one day of school, most often a Friday, and take part in protests that demand increased global action on climate change. This vocal group of students are active worldwide and have garnered support from different parts of the globe.
The reports, seen by Motherboard, state that her movement is “increasing their influence especially on young people and students” and “growing and attracting more and more people rapidly.”
Greta Thunberg shared the media coverage of the report on Twitter. She posted, “We’re very honored by this! But in all fairness, if you consider schoolchildren fighting for the right to a safe future to be a “threat to your business,” then you seriously need to reconsider your priorities.”
