This is important, I urge you to act today!
The ISP investments in individual members of Congress can be found at The Verge. The answer to which Congresspeople oppose net neutrality can be found here. ⇐ From here you can tweet directly to Congress members.
Here are phone numbers for members of the House of Representatives. Here are phone numbers for the members of the Senate.
Thanks for the reblog, Eliza. These attacks on the people’s interest are like these California wildfires — popping up on all sides, and each one very dangerous.
Very important! My senators are dems and are counting calls just for the numbers (in other words, it’s good to call them even if you already know they’re all for net neutrality so they’ll have numbers to back up their arguments). My member of the House, however, is an ass (and will probably block me from his Twitter account soon) who supports Roy Moore (monetarily, not just speaking in support of him!). No matter. We’re working hard to replace him with a woman. He will be voted out in 2018.
I made the call last week, and hope “we the people” can make a difference!
Fingers crossed! Thanks for making the call. Every one counts!
Scary stuff. Thanks for posting this.
Sadly, the vote ended in favor of ending net neutrality. So continues the long corporate takeover. George Orwell may well be a prophet.
It is in fact chilling. Trends the world over bring no reasons to be cheerful. Perhaps civil society can mobilise at least in some corners.
One can only hope that sanity and righteousness will prevail. Grassroots is our only hope it seems.
My 21 & 18 year olds are fired up. Net Neutrality and Social Justice will rally millennials in 2018. Thanks for reblog!
Thank you, C.S. Glad to hear your kids are interested. We need the Millennials to turn this ship around!
We heard about this over here too – but only just. It was buried in an op-ed and most of the people I mentioned it to had no idea. I hope you folks manage to fight back.
It is hard not to despair at the events this past year. An unprecedented, corrupt, power grab like I’ve never seen. Hopefully, voters will turn out in 2018 and turn this ugly tide.
This is an unfortunate turn of events. Thank you for reblogging and for promoting discourse.
It really is. Time will tell how bad it gets…
