Fight For The Internet; Don’t Let Internet Service Providers Create Slow Lanes; Signature Needed

Dear Readers,

Over the past few months, we’ve been talking a lot about FCC Chairman Tom
Wheeler and his so-called Open Internet proposal — it would let Comcast
and other Internet Service Providers create slow lanes and charge sites to
have their content delivered to users like you.

But we should be clear that the decision is not his alone to make.

Chairman Wheeler will need two other votes to enact Net Neutrality rules
and they will probably need to come from Democratic Commissioners Jessica
Rosenworcel and Mignon Clyburn.

This presents us and the commissioners with a real opportunity to push for
the right Net Neutrality rules with solid legal authority to prevent the
ISPs deciding how — and maybe even if — you can access the online
content you want.

We’re teaming up with Daily Kos to do just that.

[1]Please, sign and send a message to Commissioners Clyburn and
Rosenworcel urging them to strengthen the current proposal before it comes
to a vote. We must give these Commissioners all of the support they need
to push for the right net neutrality rules.

Both of these commissioners have voiced concern about the current
proposal. Each of these commissioners has a proven record of public
service. And, both commissioners attended a public forum in Sacramento
hosted by Rep. Doris Matsui to listen to concerns about the current
proposal (while Chairman Wheeler was notably absent).

With our encouragement, both of these commissioners can become our Net
Neutrality champions and help us save the Internet as we know it.

[2]Please, send a message to FCC Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and
Mignon Clyburn urging them to do the right thing on net neutrality by
getting Chairman Tom Wheeler to treat ISPs as common carriers under Title
II authority.

Thanks.
