From: Free Press:
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.

I wish Amazon would play an ace to keep net neutrality.

What, like threatening to ruin everyone's Christmas by mixing up orders and making late deliveries? Blocking the CIA's access to the cloud maybe? I understand the sentence, yet I do not know what you mean. Please; enlighten me.

It was a dumb joke, asking the CIA to lean on Pai.

At least people are starting to realize that amazon equals the CIA. And that bozos equals Beelzebub. Why do your business anywhere else?

U.S. regulators ditch net neutrality rules as legal battles loom
https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/fede ... 40509.html

"The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines on Thursday to repeal landmark 2015 rules aimed at ensuring a free and open internet, setting up a court fight over a move that could recast the digital landscape. The approval of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal marked a victory for internet service providers like AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc and hands them power over what content consumers can access.

Democrats, Hollywood and companies like Google parent Alphabet Inc and Facebook Inc had urged Pai, a Republican appointed by U.S. President Donald Trump, to keep the Obama-era rules barring service providers from blocking, slowing access to or charging more for certain content.

Consumer advocates and trade groups representing content providers have planned a legal challenge aimed at preserving those rules. The meeting was evacuated before the vote for about 10 minutes due to an unspecified security threat, and resumed after law enforcement with sniffer dogs checked the room.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, said in a statement he will lead a multi-state lawsuit to challenge the reversal. He called the vote "a blow to New York consumers, and to everyone who cares about a free and open internet." FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat, said in the run-up to the vote that Republicans were “handing the keys to the Internet” to a “handful of multi-billion dollar corporations.”"

In response, Senator Baldwin, a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, will join her colleagues in introducing a resolution to overturn the FCC’s action and restore the 2015 net neutrality rules.

VICTORY! 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.
From Progressive Congress

From: ACLU
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.
