Demand that Congress observe Net Neutrality

From Demand Progress:

Breaking news: A bill to fast-track the repeal of the FCC's strong Net Neutrality rules was just introduced in Congress—and there might be enough votes to pass it.

The bill uses a special process that allows Congress to overturn a regulation with a simple majority vote, and a vote could come at any time.1

This is one of the biggest threats to net neutrality we've seen yet—but we're fighting back.

Last week, nearly 1,000 people joined in our Net Neutrality Day of Action, dropping by their local representatives' office to tell them to defend Net Neutrality. Will you chip in $5 to keep up the pressure?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to defend Net Neutrality.

Since the FCC announced its strong new rules to protect Net Neutrality, we've seen a whole wave of attacks, including five—count 'em, FIVE—lawsuits to block the rules in court.

Now Congress is pulling out all the stops, and defending Net Neutrality is going to require the same kind of grassroots outcry it took to get the FCC to adopt it in the first place.

Without Net Neutrality, cable companies like Comcast will be able to charge big corporations extra fees for fast service and stick the rest of us in an Internet slow lane.

Will you chip in $5 to mobilize the grassroots support we need to stop this terrible bill in its tracks?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to defend Net Neutrality.

Thanks.
