As far as I'm concerned, no one should support this very anti-consumer tech company.
Please be more accurate when you throw hate toward something, justified or not. You are only empowering those who think you are wrong, by pointing out where you are wrong, and hence why your point is invalid.
Apple sued a repair shop in norway (which is what you refer, not "shops"), because he imported aftermarket parts which had the apple logo on them. Not because they didn't want him to repair their products out of warranty.
Apple claimed the markings of apple on unauthorised parts were infringe trademarks. They claimed that using their logo, he was acting as an authorised repair shop even though he wasn't.
They didn't sue him because he repaired their products, they sued based on him using their logo on the products he sold.
The shop owner claimed that without using those logos coming from his vendors, he can't work in the market environment.
The courts in norway agreed that he can keep importing those parts as long as it understood between him and the client that the parts are not apple authenticated parts.
Apple also appealed.
So what you claim isn't exactly right.
Yes, apple work against the right to repair. As a business I understand them. They don't want someone who replaced a screen and by that had other issues because his repair shop did not do a good job, and now demand them to fix a problem under warranty. And they want to sell overpriced parts, of course, just like every vendor.
Many companies do that. Even those that you think are "good" vs apple's "evil".
You as a customer, should lobby the opposite through your representatives.
All that, doesn't mean I disagree with you, and I think that right to repair should apply.
