The Network Neutrality Wars Heat Up

Posted by Mitchell - September 28, 2006 (entry 423)

Thanks to WZRD Chicago for their coverage of the issue of network neutrality and the future of the internet and the media, both on Democracy Now! and with an interview this morning.

The coverage seems to be widening and heating up regarding the Telco Takeover attempts to kill the internet. Democracy Now! has covered this now over two shows. Plus, Daily Kos and the Center for American Progress. (And, oh look, The Huffington Post just jumped on the bandwagon!)

Additional campaigns are apparently in the works from assorted activist organizations. There are a number of campaigns already underway.

And with Congress in recess for the next week (You've been off for two weeks?! You're making the White House look like workaholics!), now would be a great time to take a couple of minutes and contact your representatives in the House and the Senate to tell them to not kill the internet.

Plus, you may want to save the date of Wednesday, May 24. That's the date of a planned (for the moment) protest in Chicago against a AT&T at the old Illinois Bell building downtown.
