Novica za vse uporabnike “aplikacije” (saj vemo, zakaj ta beseda v narekovajih) Uber; na stotine njihovih strank daje na splet posnetke brisanja “aplikacije” Uber. Uber je namreč z veseljem igral vlogo stavkokaza in profitiral zaradi protesta taksistov iz New Yorka, ki so protestirali proti odloku Donalda Trumpa o zamrznitvi sprejemanja beguncev, njihovem natančnejšem preverjanju in prepovedi podeljevanja vizumov za ZDA ljudem iz določenih držav. #DeleteUber
Originialna Izjava NY Taxi Workers Alliance;
Our 19,000-member-strong union stands firmly opposed to Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. As an organization whose membership is largely Muslim, a workforce that’s almost universally immigrant, and a working-class movement that is rooted in the defense of the oppressed, we say no to this inhumane and unconstitutional ban.
We know all too well that when government programs sanction outright Islamophobia, and the rhetoric of hate is spewed from the bully pulpit, hate crimes increase and drivers suffer gravely. Our Sikh and other non-Muslim brown and black members also suffer from anti-Muslim violence.
Today, drivers are joining the protest at JFK Airport in support of all those who are currently being detained at the airport because of Trump’s unconstitutional executive order. Drivers stand in solidarity with refugees coming to America in search of peace and safety and with those who are simply trying to return to their homes here in America after traveling abroad. We stand in solidarity with all of our peace-loving neighbors against this inhumane, cruel, and unconstitutional act of pure bigotry.
