Hundreds of environmentalists protested outside the Amazon headquarters in Paris and at two regional distribution centers in France on Tuesday as part of escalating climate change demonstrations.

The protest was attended by groups including Friends of the Earth and Yellow Jackets, who staged demonstrations for months against President Emmanuel Macron.

Some 240 people have lost access to Amazon’s main office in Paris and many have denounced their trade practices, saying they do not pay their share of taxes and do not pay workers a fair wage.

Some 70 people closed a distribution center in the southern city of Toulouse and gathered some 80 others at a center near the northern city of Lille and forced workers to return home.

In a statement sent to Reuters, Amazon said it respected the right to demonstrate but defended its commercial practices, saying it paid all taxes owed.
