The petitions, signed by 275,000 people, demand broad change from the company, says Gizmodo.

The 275,000 signatures were spread amongst seven different petitions.

Each petition criticized Amazon’s coziness with law enforcement and/or ICE.

Five protesters were allowed inside the vestibule of 212 5th Ave to leave Bezos his unordered shipment.
