"Every iPhone has the blood of workers on it", say the Raging Grannies.

The Grannies and allied labor activists will protest for the second time at Palo Alto Apple, in what has become a regular series of protests there.

This month's protest and street theater will be on Monday February 13th at 3:00pm. Street theater will feature factory workers performing robotic dances to Lady Gaga hits, "Rotten Apple" posters and singing by the Raging Grannies.

Political activists for labor rights say that despite attempts to improve its image in the last 5 years, Apple has worse-than sweatshop manufacturing conditions in China. These conditions include worker suicides, child labor violations, excessive workloads, and exposure to toxic chemicals.

Join us to protest, video, photograph, sing and/or dance!
