Thousands of Amazon workers in the US and Germany are striking, and protests in the UK, Spain, and Poland are planned within the 48 hours of Prime Day.
You can't cancel your Amazon Prime membership in one click; there are four steps to follow.
Some online shoppers say they're canceling their Prime memberships in support of Amazon worker strikes and protests happening around the world on Prime Day, which kicked off on Monday.
Thousands of Amazon workers in the US and Germany are striking amid the 48-hour deals event, and protests in the UK, Spain, and Poland are planned on Monday and Tuesday.
Orhan Akman, the federal secretary of the German union Verdi, told Business Insider in a statement that Amazon warehouse workers were "deprived of a living wage."
Stuart Appelbaum, the president of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union, mentioned the extended deals window and Amazon's recent commitment to one-day shipping for Prime orders.
"By doubling Prime Day's duration and halving the delivery time, the company is testing hundreds of thousands of workers' physical limits as though they were trained triathletes," Appelbaum told Business Insider.
An Amazon representative pushed back on these claims in a statement to Business Insider, saying: "These groups are conjuring misinformation to work in their favor, when in fact we already offer the things they purport to be their cause — industry-leading pay, benefits, and a safe workplace for our employees."
People on Twitter urged shoppers to not only boycott Amazon on Prime Day but cancel their Prime memberships as the ultimate show of solidarity to warehouse workers and delivery workers.
Some on social media said workers were protesting Amazon's "appalling working conditions" and called the company "a scourge on workers all over the world."
Others voiced opposition to Amazon's cooperation with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Publications covering Prime Day deals have been the target of backlash from readers who say the coverage is tone-deaf to the strikes and worker-conditions protests.
Canceling your Prime membership takes more than one click.
Here's how to cancel your Amazon Prime membership:
Log in to your Amazon account, hover over "Accounts & Lists" at the top right of the homepage, and on the drop-down menu that appears click "Your Prime Membership."
On your Prime membership page, look to the left and select "End Membership and Benefits."
On the next page, Amazon will remind you how much you've saved on shipping fees in the past year with Prime. If you still want to cancel, click "End My Benefits."
You'll be asked to confirm your cancellation on two subsequent screens. Select "Continue to Cancel" and "Cancel Membership" to finalize your Prime cancellation.
