Protesters claim city leaders put Amazon incentives above local needs

A group of protesters called Amazon the Grinch that stole their affordable homes.

Several people gathered outside of the Nashville Yards site where the Amazon East Coast Hub is set to be built.

The group called People's Alliance for Transit, Housing and Employment claimed the tax incentives given to the company to draw it to Nashville, could have been used to help people find affordable housing.
