ALLY EVENT: Protect Net Neutrality Protest
Save the internet! Take action at the New York City Verizon Protest to save net neutrality before it’s too late.
On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to revoke net neutrality protections, thanks to Ajit Pai, the Trump-appointed FCC Chairman and former Verizon executive, who opposes equal internet access.
December 7th, the day of action, is 1 week before the final FCC vote. Protests will take place at various Verizon stores across NYC and the US to demand that Congress prevent the FCC from eliminating net neutrality. The main NYC protest will be at Bryant Park but if you prefer to find a smaller protest at a Verizon store near you, click here. **
More Actions You Can Take:
- Email Congress and tell them to support citizens, not media corporations! Get a script and connect directly to your elected leaders here.
- Call Congress and urge them to protect net neutrality.
“Hello. My name is ___ and I’m calling for Senator/Representative___ to urge him/her to stop the FCC’s plan to end net neutrality before the December 14th vote and publicly support net neutrality protections by denouncing the FCC’s current plan. It will cause internet users and businesses to be unprotected from abuse by internet service providers who will be able to censor political speech and charge fees for website delivery that would make it harder for blogs, non-profits, artists, and independent media to have their voices heard. Please protect free and equal access to the internet. Thank you.”
**Please remember – this event is about protesting actions of Verizon executives, lobbyists, and their supporters in Washington, not the employees at these stores. Please treat them with nothing but the utmost respect.
