Protesters led by a former assistant manager at Amazon took their frustrations to the gates of Jeff Bezos' home in Beverly Hills, California over the weekend.

The group got together on Sunday at Will Rogers Memorial Park before proceeding to Bezos' mansion and protesting work conditions, calling for free healthcare and an increase in hourly wages, the Los Angeles Times reported. Bezos paid a record-breaking $165 million for the Warner Estate in California, and has since reportedly paid another $10 million for the house directly next door.

The demonstrators demanded "adequate protective equipment and cleaning supplies, as well as an increase of $2 per hour for hazard pay," according to the LA Times. Furthermore, attendees reportedly carried signs that read "Tax Bezos" while chanting the words too.

Amazon faces multiple lawsuits from employees over its working conditions during the pandemic.

Sunday's protest was led by former Amazon employee Christian Smalls, who used to be an assistant manager at one of Amazon's fulfillment centers in Staten Island, New York, the LA Times reported. The march was also sponsored by a group he founded called Congress Of Essential Workers, according to the report.

Amazon fired Smalls after he assisted in organizing a previous walkout protest in March over the company's health and safety policies at its fulfilment centers after a coworker tested positive for the coronavirus. Smalls has claimed Amazon's firing constituted retaliation, which Amazon has continually denied.

LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N.
