Do­na­tions pour in for fired Briskman

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

– More than $70 000 (R1 mil­lion) in do­na­tions have poured into a crowd-fund­ing site set up for the cy­clist who was fired from her job for mak­ing a rude ges­ture to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s mo­tor­cade.

More than 3 000 do­na­tions have rolled in since Novem­ber 6, when the GoFundMe cam­paign was set up on be­half of Juli Briskman.

Briskman’s raised mid­dle fin­ger was caught by pho­tog­ra­phers as Trump’s mo­tor­cade passed her on Oc­to­ber 28. The image went vi­ral.

Three days later, the 50-year-old mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive was fired by gov­ern­ment con­trac­tor Akima. –
