Parler sues Amazon for withdrawing support after U.S. Capitol riot

Parler CEO John Matze

Social network Parler is suing Amazon for pulling its cloud computing support in the wake of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot last week.

Popular with conservatives and supporters of President Donald Trump, Parler was reliant on the cloud computing services provided by AWS. However, AWS withdrew its support on Sunday at 11:59 p.m. PT after concluding posts on Parler “clearly encourage and incite violence.”

In a lawsuit filed on Monday, Parler accused Amazon Web Services of breaking anti-trust laws.

“AWS’s decision to effectively terminate Parler’s account is apparently motivated by political animus,” the lawsuit reads. “It is also apparently designed to reduce competition in the microblogging services market to the benefit of Twitter.”

It continues: “This emergency suit seeks a Temporary Restraining Order against defendant Amazon Web Services to prevent it from shutting down Parler’s account. Doing so is the equivalent of pulling the plug on a hospital patient on life support. It will kill Parler’s business — at the very time it is set to skyrocket.”

An AWS spokesperson told CNBC that there’s no merit to the claims, while Parler did not immediately respond

On technical fronts AMAZON RSI stood at 42.63 and currently stock is trading below all moving averages. So, SELL position can be taken with following target and stoploss:

TRADE SIGNAL – : AMAZON – SELL: 3114.46, TARGET: 3069.07, STOPLOSS : 3232.72
