FILES-US-POLITICS-TRUMP-PROTEST-PHOTOGRAPHY

Juli Briskman gave the one-finger salute to President Donald Trump’s motorcade last fall. The image went viral.

Juli Briskman made headlines last fall after a photo of her flipping off President Donald Trump’s motorcade while riding her bicycle went viral ― and got her fired.

Now Briskman is suing her former employer, government contractor Akima LLC, for potentially breaking state law.

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Virginia’s Fairfax County Circuit Court, Briskman’s lawyers argue that Akima violated state employment law in firing her because it is illegal for a government contractor to terminate an employee out of fear of unlawful government retaliation.

According to the suit, Akima told Briskman she had to go because the photo, which she posted on her Facebook page, violated the company’s social media policy. But Briskman claims she was treated differently than another Akima employee who, earlier in 2017, wrote “You’re a fucking Libtard asshole” in a Facebook discussion about Black Lives Matter. That person was allowed to keep his job as long as he deleted his post.

Briskman’s Facebook page also did not identify her as an Akima employee, while the other worker’s Facebook page did name his employer.

    No weather, just lots of sunshine. Still chilly out there though. We Michiganders have had enough of winter but someone said snow was on its way. NOOOOOO!

    Watched the movie, “Guernica,” which took place pre WWII in Spain. I told the empty room that I was sure glad I was born here in 1945.

    Seems Franco asked the Germans to bomb a Spanish town, the bastard. His own people! I’m going to keep the movie here and renew it if I have to because I want my WWII buff son, Pete, to see the bombing scene near the end. How horrible! THAT’S when I said to the room how happy I was to have been born here in 1945. Those poor people. The town seemed to be gathered at the town square to sell their goods and buy goods. Lots of animals in the square, women, children, families, old people. Man’s inhumanity to man always gets to me as does man’s inhumanity to animals.
