Founder Don Grundmann promised a calm organized march, telling the Modesto City council in early August: 'We're a peaceful group, we wanted to have a meeting. We're attacked as racist.

    On Wednesday, a group of about 30 Amazon employees participated in a die-in protest at the company’s Seattle, Washington headquarters in the South Lake Union neighborhood.
