Net Neutrality — Day Of Action

(7.12) Save The Providence Daily Dose! Cable companies want to get rid of net neutrality. Without it, sites like ours could be censored, slowed down, or forced to charge extra fees. We can stop them and keep the internet open and fast if we all contact Congress and the FCC.

Demand Progress* is leading the charge in today’s Day of Action.

Today’s Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality—led by Demand Progress and allies Fight for the Future and Free Press Action Fund—will feature some of the world’s largest online platforms, including Twitter, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Reddit, and Netflix, among many others, as well as some of the biggest grassroots groups in the country.

In just hours, sites across the internet will begin displaying alerts demonstrating what a world without net neutrality would look like—including the infamous ‘spinning wheel of death’—and encourage people to contact the FCC and Congress to voice opposition to Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to roll back Title II net neutrality protections, which prevent ISPs from slowing down and blocking websites.

July 12th is an internet-wide Day of Action. Go here to Join the Protest.

*Demand Progress is a national grassroots group of two million affiliated activists who fight for basic rights and freedoms needed for a modern democracy. Before devoting his energies to the fight for internet freedom, open government, and financial reform, Demand Progress co-founder Dave Segal had served as a R.I. State Representative from 2007 to 2011, representing Fox Point. In 2010, Segal shocked the Democratic establishment and local pundits by garnering over 20% of the vote in a four-way primary against U.S. Rep. Cicilline. Mr. Segal was also a founding member of the Providence Daily Dose.
