Nov. 29, 2017 – Once again, the FCC is tampering with the rules that protect the First Amendment.
On Dec. 14, commissioners will vote to dismantle regulations that ensure equal access to the internet, Chairman Ajit Pai has announced. The rules, known as “net neutrality,” prevent internet companies from charging customers more to access some sites or slowing speeds to sites.
Activists have made over 200,000 calls to Congress to urge lawmakers to speak out, and are planning hundreds of protests across the country. Plans are underway for a rally outside the FCC on the day of the vote.
