This is about to be a thread to educate a CEO about Border Patrol and why people want to #CloseTheCamps and why workers are saying #WeWontBeComplicit.
I'm GRATEFUL to the @ogilvy employees who, like the #WayfairWalkout, don't want to be part of what's happening at the border. The hashtag #dontlookaway is aimed at all of us. #NoTechForICE could also be #NoPRforTheCamps
After 3 weeks of press coverage detailing how @ogilvy recruits for the border patrol agency running the camps, @jseifert79, the CEO, told workers raising concerns that "I don’t have enough information to indict this [organization]."

We stand w/Ogilvy workers taking risks & putting their jobs online for what is right.

Ogilvy bosses: Cancel the contract.

Oglivy workers: Please keep organizing. We're asking on behalf of 100s of people we work with who are right now in CBP detention.

We remember when @Benioff's billion dollar tech company last year offered us $250k to whitewash the work they were doing to help @CBP. We said no then because we saw Salesforce workers organizing against it and because it was the right thing to do.

Benioff told us: 'my people tell me CBP isn't as bad as ICE'. We told him he'd been misinformed.

Since then 7 children have died in CBP custody (before December 2018, no children had died in CBP custody in a decade) and the horrible conditions have been widely reported.

#WayfairWalkout is highlighting these abuses in a way that is infinitely better than donating to @RAICESTEXAS or Red Cross after legitimizing the camps with designer furniture.

No amount of designer furniture will stop the deliberate cruelty of the system. Dismantle the camps.
I realized I stirred some controversy by being unclear with my words earlier today, so attaching this to this thread and emphatically being clear that I support private folks making donations (like mine!), but ALSO that Wayfair's blood money is tainted.
You cannot provide material support to a genocidal regime and then say "whoops, I'm sorry-not-sorry, I'm donating the profits", @Wayfair.

Yeah that isn't going to cut it, @Wayfair. We want to hear that you're no longer going to be profiting from a policy the United Nations says shouldn't exist.
@Wayfair "The specter of a consumer boycott rises..." #WayfairWalkout from @sapna at the NYT: nytimes.com/2019/06/26/bus…
@Wayfair @sapna If you voted for the man who ran on persecuting immigrants, please don't bother to engage in the grotesque pantomime of pretending to care whether or not they have beds today. Actions speak louder. #WayfairWalkout

WHO is behind this??
Where are all the authoritarians calling for an end to online anonymity when it comes to THIS sort of "grassroots" politically motivated action?
#WayfairWalkout
Oooooohhh. Okay. I see.

Right! Gotcha!
how interesting and fascinating that this WayfairWalkout account appeared overnight but is aligned with the usual suspects.

This Wayfair story reveals some of the treacherous waters brands have to navigate with respect to the hateful policies of the Trump administration. +
On the one hand, a big complaint has been that people are being made to sleep on concrete floors, and yet the company from which beds has been ordered—presumably by someone attempting to rectify that situation—is now facing backlash.
It just goes to show you how toxic the Trump name is for brands. How big the risk of going anywhere near its activities. Hate is bad for business.
