Your Internet Freedom At Risk

Your rights are under attack daily under the current administration.  First our government destroys your vote, then it collects your phone record, now it's eradicating your internet rights.   

The Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that preserves the free and open Internet -- is in danger from lobbyists representing AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner, and Comcast.    According to SaveTheInternet.com (a coalition of orgs and blogs coordinated by Free Press):

  • Net Neutrality ensures that all users can access the content or run the applications and devices of their choice.
  • In April, Time Warner's AOL blocked all emails that mentioned www.dearaol.com — an advocacy campaign opposing the company's pay-to-send e-mail scheme.

We owe our increased democratic participation and expanded opportunities for free speech to Net Neutrality. This blog community would not be as powerful without Network Neutrality. 

Use your power to bombard Congress and get your internet network working to protect Network Neutrality.    How to help:

Call your representative and have your friends call too.

Use the power of your Blogs & websites while you still have the power.
