US Uncut, the grassroots effort pressuring corporate tax cheats to pay their fair share, is staging a series of protests across the nation to spread the news. The organization crashed Apple's June 7th World Wide Developer's Conference in San Francisco, Calif., where more than 5,000 attendees gathered to hear the new Apple product lines announced.
