A National Action Network director and a second protester were issued trespassing tickets during a demonstration at the newly opened Amazon warehouse in Brooklyn’s East New York Friday evening, a law enforcement source told The Post.

The incident happened between 5 and 6 p.m. at the tech giant’s massive new distribution center on Linden Boulevard.

Summonses for trespassing and disorderly conduct were given to Kevin McCall, who is crisis director for NAN, and a second male protester, according to the source.

McCall could not be immediately reached for comment.

Another protest was held earlier in the day without incident outside of Amazon’s Viele Avenue warehouse, the source said.

The nature of the protest is unclear, but the company has been the subject of protests on Staten Island repeatedly over pandemic working conditions.

Amazon sued New York Attorney General Letitia James last week to stave off potential legal action over its COVID-19 safety protocols and over the firing of an employee who staged a walkout last spring.
