Wake Up Call: FCC Plans to Repeal Net Neutrality

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has released an official statement outlining his intent to repeal Net Neutrality this December. In his statement, Pai reveals his plan for a full repeal of Net Neutrality which removes the protections that prevent Internet Service Providers from discriminating against the websites their users can access.

Although this news is disheartening, we are not giving up. We have been preparing for this and have a number of actions planned now and through the FCC’s vote on December 14th.

Help us fight to save Net Neutrality by taking part in one of the actions listed below:

Actions

Send a message to Congress telling them that you oppose Trump FCC’s plan to destroy Net Neutrality and ask them to clearly state what side they’re on.

Demand public statements against Chairman Pai’s repeal order from your congressional representatives. You can use our Battle for the Net tool to locate and call your congressional member.

On December 7th, Fight for the Future is coordinating a national day of protest at Verizon stores across the country. Read more about these actions here and visit VerizonProtests.com to get more information about protests in your area.

On December 14th, Center for Media Justice in partnership with the Voices for Internet Freedom Coalition is hosting a Wake Up Call Rally outside of the FCC – Let us know you’re coming by RSVPing today!
