LA City Council opposes the FCC's possible destruction of net neutrality

Graham Nash, Michael Stipe among celebs who signed open letter supporting net neutrality

"If the FCC's plan to undermine Title II net neutrality goes through, we will have a corporate-managed internet where it's harder for us to share and access the sort of content that makes the Internet so powerful", Access Humboldt Executive Director Sean McLaughlin wrote in a statement announcing the December 7 protest, held outside the Verizon on Broadway in Eureka.

The rules prohibit providers from charging websites different fees that could create a "fast" or "slow" lane of traffic that critics say would harm small startups that cannot afford larger fees. "It will give power to the corporate internet providers like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T". The argument centers around net neutrality-whether or not all the data passing through a network should be considered equal.

"They will be able to control content and what you can see", she added.

Map of plan protests at Verizon stores and other locations. The organizer of the Redding protests, Valerie Anderson, asked people to call Congressman LaMalfa and express concerns about the pullback from net neutrality. So, [our protest] is two-fold.

A group of internet advocates got together in Fayetteville to protest Net neutrality. Ending net neutrality, he said, would also end that possibility.

The leaflet, however, did not endorse net neutrality, which Verizon has publicly opposed, instead supporting the "lightly regulated environment" of the internet before the 2015 net neutrality rules were implemented.

Ajit Pai the chairman of the FCC, will have his name infamously etched into the history books, at least what remains of them in this near-Orwellian scenario which may very likely be our future.
