Right now Congress is being pushed to abandon the First Amendment of the Internet – a principle called “network neutrality” that preserves the free and open Internet.
Congress needs to hear from you today or they will hand over control of what you do online to companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.
Together we won the first round in the battle for Net freedom. But the phone and cable giants are launching a counterattack.
We need to raise the alarm and send a clear message to our new Congress: Make Net Neutrality the Law in 2007!
Politicians are trading favors for campaign donations from these companies.
They’re being wooed by people like AT&T’s CEO, who says “the Internet can’t be free.”
Sign this petition to tell your elected representatives to protect Internet freedom now.
