Dear Mark,

You’ve heard from me a lot recently about the “resolution of disapproval” (S.J. Res. 6) against Net Neutrality, which extremists plan to push through the Senate.

 There’s a reason for all the emails: This dangerous resolution would hand over control of the Internet to companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon while stripping the FCC of any authority to protect users’ online rights.
The vote on this resolution could happen as early as next week. So we need you to be a part of Free Press’ national call-in campaign to make one thing absolutely clear to Congress: “Corporations can’t take the Internet away from us.”

Please pick up the phone now and call Sens. Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions. Tell them: “Don’t sell out our basic right to communicate online. Vote ‘no’ on the resolution of disapproval.”

We’ve created an easy-to-use “whiplist” that helps you make the call. Just enter your zip code, find your senators and click their names. We’ve also provided a sample call script should you need to use some talking points.

Here’s the thing our senators need to know: An overwhelming majority of Americans want an open Internet. Period. We don’t want corporations blocking what we say or do online. We want every website, from the biggies like Amazon and Google to sites operated by millions of small businesses and bloggers, to be treated the same, with no fast lanes for companies with deep pockets.

These are simple, common-sense demands, and it’s time our senators heard them.

So pick up the phone, call your senators and demand they vote “no” on this resolution of disapproval. We’ll follow up on our progress as we get closer to the vote.

Thanks for everything you do,

Josh Levy

One Comment to “ALERT! Senate Repubs plan to kill off Net Neutrality, as early as next week!”

  • Gee, what a coincidence that they want to, in effect, flip on the Internet kill switch just as Occupy Wall Street has become a force that cannot be ignored, and simular protests are spreading accross the country almost daily. One shudders to think how the corporate media would aid, enhance, and cheer on these protests if it was the “Tea Party” (a fake movement that bears no resembalance to the ideals of the original Boston Tea Party does not deserve to be legitimized by stating its name without the quotes around it).
