Protesters are set to stage demonstrations at several Apple stores around the world to show their concern about the unethical treatment of factory workers at some of the company’s suppliers in China and other areas. The protests are the joint effort of an online petition started two weeks ago at Change.org and SumOfUs.org.
From the CNN article:
The targeted stores include marquee locations in Washington, DC; New York City, San Francisco, London, Sydney and Bangalore.
“This is a really huge step for us, in combining all of the voices we’ve collected from people all over the world asking Apple to clean up their supply chain,” Change.org human rights organizer Sarah Ryan told CNNMoney.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the planned action.
