Apple Loses Bid to Ban Protests by French Tax Campaign Group

A French court on Friday threw out a complaint by Apple demanding a ban on protests at its stores by the tax campaign group Attac.

Attac had staged a sit-in at Apple’s flagship Paris store on December 2, blocking access for several hours in protest at what they claimed was “massive tax evasion” by the US tech giant. Apple said the demonstration put customers’ and employees’ safety at risk and sought a court order barring the activists from further protests inside its stores.

Attac had previously held protests at stores in Paris and Aix-en-Provence in November, demanding Apple pay billions of euros which the EU says it owes in back taxes.
