Rally Marks Anniversary of Net Neutrality Rule as New FCC Chair Puts It in Crosshairs

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Proponents of an open internet are holding a rally on Monday to mark the two-year anniversary of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote that enshrined net neutrality protections that the new Trump administration has already begun eroding.

The 3pm event in Washington, D.C is backed by the Color of Change, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Center for Media Justice, and Free Press, and will feature the FCC's only Democratic commissioner, Mignon Clyburn.

We have a First Amendment guaranteeing FREE SPEECH. In this day and age, the Internet is more and more the PEOPLES' favored vehicle for the practice of our RIGHT of free speech. Any Government action that empowers crony corporations to restrict or thwart our Right of Communication with each other is a flat out Declaration Of War against the PEOPLE (you and I) who own this country. If we allow this to happen we are helping to turn this whole country into a giant Guantanamo. In the words of Ben Franklin, "If we all don't hang together on this, then surely we shall all hang separately."
