We Can Still Save Net Neutrality

Newest additions to this post will be added at the top but older stuff down below is important also.

Saving Net Neutrality is going to take all of us working together over the next 19 days, which represent our best opportunity to restore the open-internet rules. Sign up here to visit your lawmaker.

AT&T, Comcast and Verizon have been freaking out ever since the Senate passed a Congressional Review Act resolution to restore the open-internet rules. A companion bill in the House now has the support of 175 representatives but needs to get to 218 to move forward.

Visit your local lawmaker this summer and urge them to sign the discharge petition that will force a floor vote on the CRA resolution to save Net Neutrality. You can stop in any time during business hours.

Sign up here and get everything you need to stop by your representative’s office.

The fight is not over, the temporary protection of net neutrality expired but there is more we can do. Here is one thing:
This from FreePress.net
“We know we can’t trust House Speaker Paul Ryan to bring the CRA up for a vote, so we need to use a discharge petition to get it to the floor.
Add your name to the open letter by signing up below. This letter will be delivered to the House of Representatives to demand that lawmakers sign the discharge petition and vote for the CRA.”

Unless we speak up the effects of the loss of net neutrality will, day by day, slowly erode because the 60 day stall to make us think the fight was over is now expired, they can now start raising rates, throttle sites, block sites and censor.

Defenders of Open Internet Deliver ‘Historic Win’ as Senate Votes to Restore Net Neutrality
“The fight ahead is not going to be easy, but victory is within reach.”
NOTE: That is only the Senate and even if we convince the House to side with Net Neutrality the IPS’s and phone companies will always want to try to slip through net neutrality destroying legislation, so stay aware always!
