Facebook employees are holding a virtual walkout against the company's handling of Trump's posts

In a few words: Strike at Facebook. Several dozen Facebook employees went on strike on Monday. This social movement, unusual within the company, follows Mark Zuckerberg's decision not to censor several messages posted by the American president on the social network, in which he threatens with violence the people who demonstrate following the death of George Floyd in the United States.
