Letters to Amazon Boss Jeff Bezos and CEO Andy Jassy to stop selling Milwaukee Tool Gloves

This letter is for your urgent attention. After two letters sent to the Amazon team, and no actions taken in the past 2 weeks. I decided to write an email directly to you. I'm Mindy, Co-Founder of a startup. And also an E-Commerce veteran. 

... My husband Cheng Yuan is a great and famous Chinese human rights activist who has been arbitrarily detained in China for 1200 days,  and currently he is working as a slave labor of Milwaukee Tools company in Chishan prison, Hunan province, China. Recently released prisoners testifies that Milwaukee Tool uses Chinese prisoners of conscience as slave labor in China. Several months ago, some prisoners released from Chishan prison, Hunan Province, China testified they worked as slave laborers for Milwaukee Tool Company while incarcerated. One of the former prisoners is Taiwanese Lee Mingche, a human rights activist who was detained in Hunan Chishan prison and released in April 2022 and sent back to Taiwan. Besides Lee Mingche, other prisoners from Chishan prison have also verified his claims.

... 4800~14400 pairs of Milwaukee gloves are produced in Hunan Chishan prison daily... I believe selling products produced by slave labor are harmful for Amazon's reputation... I sincerely... hope Amazon could take the right decision and stop selling these products ASAP. I have found lawyers in the US in the past two weeks and I'm ready to sue Milwaukee Tool soon, if Amazon doesn't take any action, I reserve my rights to sue Amazon along with Milwaukee Tool based on US law...
