Watch: Video of Mark Thomas putting up deaf protest signs at Amazon HQ

Posted on May 15, 2014

Here’s a video of TV comedian Mark Thomas putting up ‘LOVE FILM HATE DEAF PEOPLE’ signs at Amazon’s HQ in central London on Tuesday.

Mark’s stunt, in support of Stephanie McDermid’s 15,000 strong petition asking Amazon to subtitle their online content, drew a response from Amazon promising to begin subtitling content this year.

Mark filmed the stunt as part of his new comedy show 100 Acts of Minor Dissent. We’ve got more from Stephanie next week as she talks about her campaign and what happens next.
