TONIGHT: 99% bat signal at Seattle Art Museum announces Amazon Fair Share Rally

Light projections on museum call on giant retailer to pay their taxes, treat workers with respect, and dump ALEC

Like a 99% bat signal, light projections on the Hammering Man and Seattle Art Museum tonight will spread the word about the issues behind a major 500+ person Amazon fair share rally taking place at Amazon's annual shareholder meeting, which is being held later this week at the museum.

With the power of light & art today — and with people power later this week — the 99% will call on the giant retailer to pay its fair share of taxes, treat all workers with respect, and end support for ALEC, the shadowy and extreme right-wing organization.

ALEC is responsible for pushing "stand your ground" laws, unfair tax loopholes, and other extreme legislation. As ALEC's notoriety has come to light, many major corporations like McDonald's and Kraft have officially dropped support for the group. However, Amazon has so far refused to do the same.

When: TONIGHT: Tuesday, May 22nd, beginning at about 9:30 pm.

Where: Seattle Art Museum (location of Amazon shareholder meeting later this week), 1st & University in downtown Seattle

What: Light projections on the Hammering Man and Seattle Art Museum TONIGHT in advance of a major fair share rally at Amazon's annual shareholder meeting.

Amazon's annual shareholder meeting — and our major Amazon fair share rally — will take place just two days from now, at Seattle Art Museum at 8:30 am on Thursday morning.

Working Washington is bringing people together to fight for a fair economy — and that means holding corporations like Amazon accountable to pay their fair share and make sure all the jobs they create are good jobs. We're taking creative, direct action to call on elected officials, big corporations, and the top 1% to do what it takes to stop the cuts to education, health care, and other services. It's time to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the top 1%. For more information, visit
