Greta Thunberg the 17-year-old climate activist from Sweden who launched a global youth protest to bring awareness to environmental issues has responded to reports that Amazon ‘monitors’ her activity as a potential threat to its business in Europe.
In a report from Business Insider, leaked documents reportedly reveal that Amazon keeps a close eye on climate activists including Greta Thunberg.
This comes after Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos publicly pledged to donate $10 billion to groups focused on climate change.
Greta Thunberg took to Twitter to respond to the article saying that Amazon needed to ‘reconsider your priorities’.
“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…”.
Greta Thunberg is the subject of a new documentary now available on Hulu titled “I Am Greta” that documents her climate activism and her journey to the United States to speak at the United Nations. You can stream it here.
