Net Neutrality

Save the Internet!

Today, you can use the power of the blogs to help save the Internet.

As the House of Representatives prepares to vote this week on whether to protect Internet freedom, a funny new video about Net Neutrality was released online today by the SavetheInternet.com Coalition and PoliticsTV.com.

In it, Grammy-nominated musician Moby identifies how out-of-touch Washington, D.C. must be if Congress is even thinking about gutting Net Neutrality. He urges Americans to let their voices be heard by flooding Congress with phone calls.

Can you help raise awareness of this week's threat to Internet freedom by posting this humorous video on your blog today?

Save The Net

"The Internet is fighting back to save itself" is how Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA), a lead Internet freedom proponent, described our momentum at a recent Net Neutrality event with Moby.

While corporations like AT&T are spending millions in paid advertising, lobbying, and campaign contributions to convince Congress to give them control over what you see and do online, we are empowering regular Internet users to fight back by using the magic of the Internet. By letting others know about this humorous video, you are indeed helping the Internet to save itself.

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. When you forward the video, you can also remind your friends to sign our petition to Congress. SavetheInternet.com Coalition members have already collected 750,000 signatures which we will deliver this week—and this number grows every day.
