FUCK MOTHERFUCKING TRUMP. That is all.
The coming weeks will call for more phone calls, protests, and people speaking out — in the streets, at the FCC, on Capitol Hill and online.

From Progressive CongressVICTORY! You made it happen. In a major win for everyone who cares about keeping the internet free and open, the Senate just passed the CRA resolution to restore net neutrality.
Thank you to everyone who took action, signed petitions, made phone calls, and showed up at Congressional offices and Team Internet events around the country. Thanks to you, the Senate just took a big step towards restoring net neutrality.
Thank you for taking action to keep the internet free and open-- it has made a real difference.
Now, the House of Representatives will take up the vote to restore net neutrality. Once again, it's all hands on deck. Luckily, we have champions of net neutrality in the House, but we need to make sure that your Members of Congress hear from you.
Can we count on you? Please call your Representatives today and tell them to restore net neutrality. To reach the Capitol Switchboard: call (202) 224-3121.
If you haven't already, please take a moment and sign up at battleforthenet.com/redalert for key ways to take action going forward.
The Senate just voted to protect net neutrality and reverse the FCC's decision to cede control of the internet to Big Telecom. This is a truly stunning victory – and one that was only possible because we fought together. Since the FCC voted to dismantle net neutrality in December, hundreds of thousands of activists like you signed the petition, sent messages to their senators, and kept those Senate phones ringing off the hook.
Even a Senate whose leadership is in the pocket of Big Telecom was no match for us. You never gave up, and that made us victorious today.
Next step for net neutrality: win the House vote
The House will now face the same choice: listen to their constituents or allow a misguided, illogical decision to threaten access to content online. With the net neutrality rollback set to happen on June 11, we need the House to act swiftly – which means we need to start targeting them now.
Send a message to your representative demanding that they vote to save net neutrality. The vast majority of people in this country – regardless of political party – support net neutrality. And with the Senate now definitively voting to reverse the FCC's ruling, the pressure on the House is real.
