Amazon Trucks Snarled in U.K. Amid Climate Protest Blockades

LONDON—Climate protesters blockaded 13 Amazon . com Inc. facilities in the U.K., as well as two more in Germany and the Netherlands, snarling trucks in some locales, in a bid to disrupt operations on the busiest day of Amazon’s year in terms of online orders.

Before dawn, activists for Extinction Rebellion, a British group campaigning for action on climate change, began blocking roads outside Amazon warehouses, in some cases erecting metal structures to prevent delivery trucks entering or leaving the facilities. Around 20 activists were protesting at each location.
