This is seriously not a joke; Net Neutrality is being attacked and it effects EVERYBODY. Not just people in the US where it is going on, but people internationally as well. www.tumblr.com/everybodyonthei…
We are almost at the goal of what we need for signatures, but WE NEED MORE. We Need to tell the government that THIS NEEDS TO STAY IN PLACE.cms.fightforthefuture.org/tell…online.wsj.com/news/articles/S…www.nytimes.com/2014/04/25/bus…www.fightforthefuture.org/
You might say "This'll never happen" but things like this HAVE happened before. THAT is why we need to take a stand and not just sit around with out thumbs up our asses.
*Remember when Wikipedia had that blackout period? or the SOPA attack? That is all connected to this!*
"Who will be effected?"
Everyone will be effected; think of no more free wifi places, no more being able to get on DA/Tumblr/Youtube/Twitch/Wikipedia, no one who is an upcoming artist being able to get noticed (Youtube stars, Self-published authors, small business owners on the internet, game makers, song writers, musicians, fashion tips, cooking help)
"Even if it passes it wont be for long"
If it passes, that will give opportunities for other right-suppressing things to try to pass. It will open the floodgates and cause massive issues for so many people. If it passes, we might not even be able to INFORM people properly of what happened because we cannot access the KNOWLEDGE that IS posted. So many people are on the internet now that fewer are watching TV, reading the newspaper/magazines/articles that are needed to know what is going on!
