Petitioning Apple

Publicly apologize to would-be customers for anti-Iranian discrimination.

Salespeople at these Apple Store branches have engaged in practices that smack of racial profiling. Selling to would-be customers of Iranian descent here in the U.S. does not constitute a violation of Apple's export compliance policy, which prohibits the "...exportation, reexportation, sale or supply...from the United States, or by a U.S. person wherever located...to [Iran]." As the National Iranian-American Council recently explained, this discriminatory policy "is part of an escalating pattern in which increasingly broad sanctions on Iran are hitting the wrong people."  We call upon store managers to publicly apologize to would-be customers for turning them away on account of their Iranian ancestry, and to express their commitment to desist from such discriminatory practices in the future.  We will otherwise resort to peaceful protests and continued publicization of this cause.
