Protesters are now marching less than a mile from the park to the Bezos pad in Beverly Hills, where they plan to stop and demonstrate before returning to the park.
This march was promoted earlier this week with the tagline tagline, “Wrong Amazon is burning!” … and the protest came a week before Amazon’s popular Prime Day.
