Just like the release of the iPhone 4s and iPad 2, tomorrow's new iPad release at the Stockton Street Apple store in San Francisco will play host to a group of protesters. And this year, things could get more rousing than that previous Apple store melee. This American Life, as you may recall, recently revealed that the working conditions at Foxconn — one of Apple's primary factories, where workers "toil for low pay in exploitative conditions to make our shiny Apple products" — are, well, deplorable.

According to reports, "Demonstrators will gather outside the Stockton Street store on Friday at 8 a.m., to confront consumers waiting to buy the new iPad 3 and call on Apple create a worker protection strategy to prevent any more workplace abuse, injury, and death."

And look, there's even a petition to sign.
