LAST CHANCE TO SAVE NET NEUTRALITY


#FCCHandsOffTheNet
#NetNeutrality

Streaming movies and videos is a way of life. A way of life that may come to an end if the new Federal Communications Commission Chairman has his way http://wapo.st/2pEyBp9.

The FCC chairman is proposing to dismantle existing regulations which will allow internet service providers (ISPs) to block content, charge more, and create faster channels at higher prices http://nyti.ms/2qy1sPT.

This means ISPs could slow down streaming on platforms such as Netflix and Hulu to favor expensive cable television.

We can’t let this happen!

During the last threat to net neutrality thousands filed comments with the FCC and it worked!

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR COMMENTS!

Get those comments in before it is too late.


**ACTION:  LET THE FCC KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ON THEIR COMMENT FORM**

Tell the FCC to keep ISPs under Title II of the Communications Act.

— Visit https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express
— Enter “17-108” in the “Proceedings” section and select “Restoring Internet Freedom”
— Type in your name, address, comment, and hit continue.

Note that submitted comments will be part of the public record and available online.

Some internet giants and activists will participate in a day of action to oppose changes to net neutrality rules.

REMINDER:

Each day we try to focus on a single, time-sensitive issue for our CTA. There are more of these topics than we can fit into a daily CTA; whenever you call, text, e-mail and/or visit, please continue to press our members of congress on Trumpcare, RussiaGate, Education, Environmental Issues—whatever your hot button topics might be.
Thank you for making those calls and for every action you take to Resist the Trump Agenda and to Hold Our Members of Congress Accountable!
