Bezos housing hypocrisy
Billionaire Amazon boss Jeff Bezos claims his new philanthropy fund will help the homeless. The richest man in the world has announced that he would give $2 billion of his fortune to tackle homelessness in the US.
The same Jeff Bezos fought to overturn the tax proposed by Socialist Alternative city councillor Kshama Sawant on his corporate headquarters - which was supposed to fund affordable housing.
We say nationalise Amazon and take Bezos's billions. That would pay for hundreds of thousands of homes - as well as a living wage for his workers.
