Last weekend, Apple received some unexpected visitors in multiple stores across the country. Grassroots organization US Uncut made appearances in Apple stores in an effort to protest the tech giant’s tax lobbying agenda. Apple is part of WIN America, which is a coalition of companies including Google and Microsoft, that is pushing for a tax holiday that would bring about a trillion dollars in profits back to the US.

Carl Gibson, a spokesperson with US Uncut, told us that the protestors went through the Apple stores chanting, “Love the iPhone, hate the tax cheat” and “Why can’t I sync my iPhone with my values?” The demonstrators also made a decorated appearance at Apple’s WWDC event this week in hopes of getting their message out.
