Boston, MA– Over 75 demonstrators and supporters organized by the Budget for All Campaign called attention to the tax dodges employed by Apple, Inc. as they sang Xmas carols with clever new verses.

The words to the old standards like Jingle Bells ( Apple Sells) and Away in a Manger (Away in a Haven) connected the dots between tax evasion by corporations like Apple and budgetary woes in the US. Various speakers testified to the real human costs behind budget cuts and Austerity.

Passersby were quite sympathetic and most were shocked to learn at how little Apple paid in taxes.
