In New York—one of the cities targeted for this weekend’s expected ICE raids—hundreds of immigration activists protested outside the annual conference of Amazon Web Services to protest the tech giant’s ties to ICE and the Department of Homeland Security. Amazon’s servers host databases that allow the agencies to track immigrants and carry out deportations. Dozens of protesters made it inside the conference, where they repeatedly disrupted a keynote address by Amazon chief technology officer Werner Vogels.
Protester 1: “Amazon, how much longer will you have blood on your hands? I am complying. I’m complying.”
Protester 2: “Cut ties with ICE! Cut ties with ICE! Cut ties with ICE!”
