The Internet Slowdown: we made history today! But we’re not done yet.Posted 22:40 EDT on September 10, 2014
Thanks so much for being part of the Internet Slowdown. We made history today, it’s been huge!
More and more people are pouring in every minute to take action. This is the biggest opportunity we’ve ever had to protect the Internet as a platform for free expression, but the momentum won’t last forever. We need to seize this moment and turn it into an undeniable victory.
Can you help? If all of us take just two minutes right now to tell everyone we know about Battleforthenet.com we could double the massive number of people taking action today.
Please forward this email to everyone in your address book. Text all your friends and tell them to join, and post on social media. Here we’ll make it easy for you!
So far today we’ve driven 525,000 comments to the FCC from our site alone, and we melted phones in Washington, DC with more than 193,000 phone calls to Congress and the White House. That’s outstanding! But Cable companies like Comcast and Verizon are spending more than $1 million every week lobbying politicians in DC to ignore the public’s voice on this issue.
Let’s make ourselves impossible to ignore. Are you with us?
Yours for the Internet,
