#DontBlockMyInternet: Actions Against Internet Providers

We are in a countdown towards the passage of Internet rules that will keep the Internet open for generations to come -- and we couldn’t be happier. The FCC is about to do the right thing and vote to reclassify the Internet as a public utility at its next meeting on February 26th. But the cable companies are pushing back and doing everything in their power to block our success. As Internet consumers, we’re already overcharged and under-represented. Our lives depend on an open Internet. Movements like #BlackLivesMatter, #Not1More, and #Fightfor15 all rely on the open Internet to mobilize a powerful public voice against police brutality, deportation, and for the rights of low-wage workers. That’s why the Media Action Grassroots Network and our partners are hosting actions across the country to say to Comcast, AT&T, Verizon and Time Warner: #DontBlockMyInternet.
