A federal appeals court today just sided with Verizon and against you, against us, against the Internet.
Click here to stop this ruling now!
If this ruling stands, the Internet as we know it will die. Forget free and open access. Picture a system like cable television with corporations charging for different levels of access, and blocking access to information they don't favor!
The Internet is our tool for circumventing the corporate media, for reaching each other with a bit of truth and accuracy, for organizing each other into collective action. We cannot let this one go.
Sign this petition to the FCC, Congress, and the White House now!
And use the Internet in every way you know to share this far and wide.
Please forward this email to everyone!
