Amazon employees around the world are protesting their working conditions this week, intentionally planning protests to coincide with Amazon's annual Prime Day sales event.




Some livestreamers on Amazon-owned Twitch are going dark to stand in solidarity with these protesters.




"I won't be streaming until Wednesday in support of this strike and won't be touching Amazon's sites during the strike," one streamer said on Twitter. "I ask that you consider doing the same!"

People aren't just talking about deals and discounts during this year's Prime Day, Amazon's annual sales event that kicked off Monday.
This year, to coincide with Prime Day, some Amazon workers organized protests against the retail giant — thousands of workers in the US and Germany are going on strike, while in the UK, Spain, and Poland, major protests are planned.
And it looks like Amazon's employees aren't the only ones protesting: some Twitch streamers are too.
