Powerful phone and cable companies are colluding with government agencies to trample on our rights to connect and communicate. These same companies grab every opportunity to raise our rates and pad their profits.
This week a federal court heard arguments in Verizon vs. FCC — the court case that could overturn the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet rules. If Verizon gets its way, the few rules protecting Internet users from corporate abuse will disappear. If that happens, we’re going to need to rally to save the Internet — for good.
We all love different things about the Internet, but we agree that corporations should not be gatekeepers to the Web.
Free expression, access to information, openness, innovation and privacy could soon disappear. Tell your policymakers to stand up and save the Internet.
Everything we love about the Internet is at risk.
The Internet we love isn’t just a platform for corporate speech.
The Internet we love isn’t just another tool in the government’s spying regime.
The Internet we love lets us connect and create.
The Internet we love is affordable and accessible.
The Internet we love rejects censorship and values our right to communicate in private.
I urge you to stand up and save the Internet we love.
