    “These are the emails of the 5 people on the FCC roster. These are the five people deciding the future of the internet.

    The two women have come out as No votes. We need only to convince ONE of the other members to flip to a No vote to save Net Neutrality.

  2. Here’s some links to the petitions:

    International: https://www.savetheinternet.com/sti-home

    US: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/do-not-repeal-net-neutrality

    **ALSO** Text “resist” to 504-09. It’s a bot that will send a formal email, fax, and letter to your representatives. It also finds your representatives for you. All you have to do is text it and it holds your hand the whole way.

    WAY too many people are simply upvoting and hoping that’ll be enough, this is the closest level of convenience to upvoting you can find WHILE actually making a difference.

    Feel free to repost these wherever. Get the word out.

  3. WHAT TO DO IF YOU’RE A LAZY REDDITOR WITH ANXIETY WHO TRIES TO HELP WITH JUST UPVOTES:

    Here are 2 petitions to sign, one international and one exclusively US.

    This effects us all.
    DO. YOUR. PART.

    Edit: Shoutout to u/MomDoesntGetMe for putting this together.

  5. What does this have to do with chemical reactions? Can’t you at least keep this shit to the relevant subs? Half of Reddit isn’t even American and has nothing to do with any of it.

  6. Protest Idea: MASS CANCELLATION DAY

    Big internet companies are not fighting hard enough or at all for net neutrality. Remember when Reed Hastings from Netflix suddenly didn’t care about net neutrality? What do you think about organizing a protest against their indifference/inaction with a day of mass cancellations.

    If Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Amazon, Xbox Live, PSN, HBO, etc lost MILLIONS of customers in a single day with the promise that we are not coming back until NN is the law again, they would be forced to throw their full weight behind stopping this crap.

    It could not be more obvious that our government is ignoring us while it inflicts great harm upon us for the benefit of ISPs. It’s time to speak with our wallets to people who cannot ignore the language of money. These services will all be used against us anyway when Verizon and Comcast and the others can charge us extra or throttle them or just block them outright.

    Sadly these companies and their money have more influence over our leaders than we ever will. We need to force them into fighting for us. You want our business back? Get on the front lines and put a permanent stop to this! Now!!

  7. Uh oh! Your current plan only covers animal gifs! Upgrade your plan for only $4.99 monthly to access miscellaneous gifs.

  8. Text resist to 50409

    Send the below message if you want to help.

    Dear Senators and Representatives:

    Please support any amendment that would strike out Sections 628, 629 and 630 from the Government Appropriations. These sections would undermine the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules and prevent the agency from enforcing these critical protections. It is unacceptable to use a budget bill to circumvent the FCC’s open rulemaking process that millions of citizens participated in.

    The American people have called for strong net neutrality rules. Congress should let the FCC do its job, and not engage in unproductive partisan brinksmanship.

    Thank you,

  9. Everybody, this is important. We must get the word out to people beyond Reddit. Please cross post everything about Net Neutrality to any forums you visit. Also email, message, tweet, snap, ect. your favorite content creators. If they make video to the scale that this has been spread on reddit, we might have a chance.

  11. Cable TV is what allowing a hardware monopoly to control what the content is looks like. Fascist media content controlled by Comcast. Extra-governmental censorship.

  12. Nah. I don’t want the same entity (gov’t) that fucked up health care, fucked up the VA, fucked up taxes, fucks up literally everything it touches to also fuck up the internet. It’s been working fine so far. And if this fake, astroturf campaign that’s taken over the first 5-10 pages of Reddit with threads of fake up-voted threads from subs I’ve never even seen before, while at the same time suppressing subs that they don’t agree with, is any indication of how this company plans to run things under net neutrality, then you can count me out.

  13. #Time Warner, Verizon, Comcast, and ATT are the ones writing the net neutrality laws

    #This is you versus corporations NET NEUTRALITY IS A SHAM, CORPORATE OLIGARCHS WANT IT

    Further reading and links to nefarious persons. This is not about freedom it’s about **GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF THE INTERNET**

    >the George Soros-funded net neutrality group Free Press was mentioned 46 times – it’s almost as if Free Press had written the regulations for the FCC. The OIO sees the Internet as something that should be nationalized by the government to be run like a public utility.
