With Apple owning the European Union some $15.5 billion, protesters stormed and occupied several Apple stores in France on Saturday, demanding fiscal justice.

“Apple must stop denying the tax practices highlighted by the European Commission’s investigation, withdraw its appeal to the European Court of Justice and pay its fine of 13 billion euros as quickly as possible,” said Aurélie Trouvé, spokesman for Attac, according to the release. Trouvé added that to verify that Apple is paying correct taxes, the company must “publish its country-by-country reporting now and retroactively over the past few years. “

The European Commission has been in the process of investigating tax arrangements with multinationals across the region. It has referred Ireland to the European Court of Justice for failing to collect around €13 billion in unpaid taxes from Apple, citing illegal tax benefits. Both Apple and Ireland are appealing that decision.
