Demand Progress:

We’re less than 24 hours away from the Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality.

It’s gonna be huge. Hundreds of companies and websites, including some of the biggest sites on the web like Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, Vimeo and Reddit, thousands of artists, creators, and entrepreneurs, and activists like you from all over the country will be standing together with one voice to tell the FCC: We will NEVER give up net neutrality!

We’ll be in touch first thing tomorrow with the best way to participate in the Day of Action, but here’s what you can do today:

Here are the step-by-step instructions in case you need a little extra help:

1) Click on the link above to change your profile picture. The link will give you the option to add the Save the Internet avatar to Facebook (or Twitter). Once you click that option, it will save to your photos on Facebook.

2) There will then be a button you can click that says “Set as my Facebook picture.” From there it will take you to your Facebook page.

3) You can then set it as your Facebook profile picture by clicking the “options” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the photo.

If you’re not on Facebook, not to worry. Here are some other things you can do today ahead of the big day tomorrow:

  1. Make sure you’ve submitted your comment to the FCC in support of Title II net neutrality. You can do that here.
  2. Email your friends, family, contacts or list about the Day of Action. Here is a sample email you can copy and paste or tweak to suit your audience.
  3. Tweet to your followers. You can click to tweet here or use some of our sample tweets as a guide here.

We appreciate all you’ve done for the free and open internet so far, and all you will do. We’ll be in touch again tomorrow with the best ways for you to get engaged on the Day of Action itself.

Thanks for all you do.

For a free and open internet,

Carli, Kurt, Reuben, David, and the whole Demand Progress Team

TELL FCC WHY NET NEUTRALITY IS IMPORTANT

My comment:

Ending Net Neutrality will open the floodgates of criminal collusion as Telecoms target their rivals: be they business competitors, political ideas or other knowledge which they deem not in their interest. This assault on freedom will usher in an age of secret collusion and destroy the ability to check information for its veracity, its truthfulness.

It will empower telecoms into becoming the arbiters of what can and cannot be said. This issue was successfully addressed originally when telephone companies could not police the content of calls. That is the model to use with Internet, less intrusion, less manipulation by private interests. The freedom of personal communications needs to be protected, not eroded and manipulated behind closed doors.

That’s un-American.

PS.

Unfortunately, FreePress.net sent me the notice at 10:20am PACIFIC TIME! It’s already too late.

Tell the FCC to protect the open internet

“Dear FCC, we need net neutrality. Protect internet users from monopolistic ISPs and don’t let companies censor, slow down, or block websites while requiring other sites to pay for faster service. Please stand up for all Internet users and our right to communicate.””
