Right now Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the First Amendment of the Internet — a principle called “network neutrality” that preserves the free and open Internet. Congress needs to hear from you today or they will hand over control of what you do online to companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.
Politicians are trading favors for campaign donations from these companies. They’re being wooed by people like AT&T’s CEO, who says “the Internet can’t be free.” Sign this petition to tell your elected representatives to protect Internet freedom now. When you fill out the information and push submit, we will automatically send it to your Members of Congress.
Online petitions don’t accomplish much, in my opinion, unless there’re people in the streets backing it up. However it only takes a few seconds. This battle is important and happening now. The real solution will come with a restructured system that takes control the Net out of the hands of private corporations – something many countries already have.
