UPDATE 1-Climate activists target Amazon depots in Britain on 'Black Friday'

(Adds details)
    TILBURY, England, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Climate activists
targetted 15 Amazon  AMZN.O  depots across Britain on "Black
Friday" as part of a protest against the e-commerce giant, which
the Extinction Rebellion group said epitomised an obsessive
overconsumption.
    "Black Friday epitomises an obsession with overconsumption
that is not consistent with a liveable planet," the group said.
    "Amazon and companies like it have capitalised on our desire
for convenience and stoked rampant consumerism at the expense of
the natural world," it said.
    A Reuters reporter at an Amazon depot at Tilbury docks in
eastern England said protesters had blocked the entrance. 
    Banners read: "Black Fridays exploits people and planet",
"Amazon crime" and "Infinite growth, finite planet."
