rcmmacgregor: We expect to be in control of our internet…

rcmmacgregor:

We expect to be in control of our internet experience. When we use the Internet, we want Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality is the fundamental principle that prohibits internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from speeding up, slowing down or blocking any content, applications or websites you want to use. The upshot is that ISPs could censor information, or slow down access to those who cannot shell out big bucks to access it at top/ideal speeds. This will make things difficult for small businesses that sell/market online, for people to apply for jobs or to colleges, and/or to organise against or for issues they want to protest or promote.

(Submission) Nerd here: Another Net Neutrality post
(sorry guys 😅) But above is a link ☝🏾 to another petition that can be signed as a letter to congress to save the free internet within 60 days.

Also some good news! I read an article stating that a bunch of states are suing the FCC to protect Net Neutrality. Lead by New York State, 18 attorneys general from the states of Virginia, Delaware, Hawaii, California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, Maine, Mississippi, Oregon, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Washington, Vermont and the District of Columbia. Are joining in too! And there’s expectation to be more states added later.

Another thing we can do is text “BATTLE” to 384-387 to convince congress to overturn the repeal using the Congressional Review Act.

“Particularly damning is what today’s repeal will mean for marginalized groups, like communities of color, that rely on platforms like the internet to communicate, because traditional outlets do not consider their issues or concerns, worthy of any coverage. It was through social media that the world first heard about Ferguson, Missouri, because legacy news outlets did not consider it important until the hashtag started trending.” –  Mignon Clyburn, FCC Commissioner for Net Neutrality

Today the FCC voted 3-2 to kill the net neutrality rules you helped pass back in 2015

Let’s not kid ourselves: This is a major setback in our fight for a free and open internet. But It’s not the end. Not for us, and we hope not for you. 

Net neutrality is too important to be subject to the whims of any administration. We need legislative action. 

Go to Battle For The Net to get connected directly to your Senators or Representatives. If we work together, we can get it done. Again! 

Here’s more from Commissioner Clyburn this morning:

I am optimistic, that we will look back on today’s vote as an aberration, a temporary deviation from the bipartisan path, that has served us so well. I don’t know whether this plan will be vacated by a court, reversed by Congress, or overturned by a future Commission. But I do believe that its days are numbered. (Verge)

Are you serious? No way. Stop this and start listening to the public. Do not end Net Neutrality. Do not allow blocking, throttling and discrimination. Do not leave us at the mercy of the phone and cable companies. Don’t do it! Tear up this proposal. Cancel the vote in December. Leave Title II and the open internet alone.

10 reasons WHY Net Neutrality is a MUST for Hooligans:

1.) Who the fuck else wants to hear about your odd sexual needs fulfilled by Bruno Mars BESIDES your internet buddies?

2.) How else will we see Bruno not tweet us constantly?

3.) IF A NEW VIDEO COMES OUT HOW WILL WE KNOW HUH??? How will be fangirl with people who UNDERSTAND ONLINE?

4.) His sells may go down for some reason idk

5.) If (I’m saying IF) he were to do something super epic that needs a dramatic response such as dropping a new song or video or even personal stuff like him being pregnant, WHO WOULD KNOW?

6.) How will he be able to see my tweets he’ll never respond to?

7.) HOW WILL WE FANGIRL TOGETHER????!!?!!?!?!???

8.) Who am I gonna talk shit with when something stupid happens dealing with Bruno?

9.) Twitter is SERIOUSLY the only platform besides Instagram Bruno uses to communicate with fans, and if that’s gone then like we have NOTHING BRO.

10.) If this does happen, I’ll miss Bruno’s tweets most even tho they didn’t have much excitement wrapped in them sometimes
