The Tubes are OURS!, Protect them!
Senators who put the interests of big corporations before their
constituents are trying to push through a measure that would give phone
and cable corporations complete control over the Internet.
The net neutrality regulations passed by the FCC last December were
incredibly disappointing -- weak enough that they barely warranted the
name "net neutrality." And now the big telecom companies are working to
kill even these perfunctory rules to ensure we maintain some semblance of
an open Internet.
If the Senate passes a proposed resolution stripping the FCC of its
regulatory power, companies like Verizon and Comcast will have the
authority to block our rights to free speech and access to and ability to
share information on the internet. We'll lose our last line of defense
against an internet run by giant corporations.
I told my senators to take a stand against the complete corporate takeover
of the internet and vote against the resolution to nullify the FCC net
neutrality regulations. I hope you will too. You can sign the petition at
