Delaware Attorney Begins Hunger Strike In Protest Of Social Media Firings Outside The Supreme Court Of The United States(June 02, 2014)
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
Delaware Attorney Brian Zulberti, Esq., one of the nation's most controversial and outspoken attorneys, has kicked off a Hunger Strike outside the Supreme Court of the United States. Zulberti will continue the Hunger Strike "until he gets 90 seconds of prime time weeknight coverage on a major national television network."
Zulberti seeks to use this 90 seconds to warn America about the dangers of allowing employers to continue firing their employees because of what they post on their social media accounts. Over the past year, Zulberti has been a regular and vocal advocate for a strict legal separation between the public and private spheres. His website includes the details of his message and a video titled, "My Message To The Nation." Zulberti has taken a break in his self-dubbed 50 state "social media campaign" for the Hunger Strike. His fans and supporters can access an interactive map on his website to see which states he has visited and what "unjust social media firings" he has covered there.
Although Zulberti had previously announced that the entirety of his Hunger Strike would be broadcast live from his website, his Facebook fan page indicates that his generator has proved insufficient to continuously power his live feed. "This is precisely why I began the Hunger Strike a day early. No matter how well you plan, small things always seem to go wrong. My staff will have me a new, more powerful generator before the end of the day and the feed will be up and running again."
Zulberti added that the reason he wanted the feed to run continuously was to "ensure the integrity of his hunger strike in case people accused him of sneaking a bite to eat here or there." When asked how we could be sure the "integrity" of the Strike remains in place, Zulberti laughed and replied, "Well, I'm only about 10 hours into the Strike at the moment. Most of us do a 10 hour Hunger Strike almost every single night. By the time the Strike gets serious, the feed will be up and running again. Plus, most of the people out here, including the Supreme Court staff, know who I am and what I am doing. I'm pretty sure that word would get out quickly if I had a Philadelphia cheesesteak hanging out of my mouth."
But Zulberti hastened to add that, "This Hunger Strike isn't about fun and games. This is the most important social issue of any of our lives, and I have made advocating it my life's work. As technology advances, privacy of any sort is going to become a creature of the past. Every facet of our lives are going to be out there for everyone to see- including employers. If America doesn't heed my warning now and restrict employment decisions to resumes, references, workplace history and workplace performance, we will be living in a self-imposed version of George Orwell's famous novel "1984." I, for one, will give everything, including my life, to make sure that doesn't happen."
Laura Holden, one of Zulberti's staff members and chief organizer of the Hunger Strike, indicated that Zulberti will be reachable by phone and E-mail for the entirety of the Strike and that "he'd be more than happy to speak to any media. His goal is to issue a warning and deliver a message."
