To Save Net Neutrality organizations to act on July 12 Support Net Neutrality

On April 27, 2017 US Federal Communications Commission released a draft of its proposal to roll back the 2015 protections.

On May 18, in a two-to-one decision, the FCC voted to open a public debate on net neutrality rules and whether those established in 2015 should be undone, publishing a new draft of its proposal the following week.

The July 12 date for the Day of Action was announced on June 6. The public is free to comment on the FCC’s proposal, and the first deadline for comments is July 17.

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees. On July 12th, the Internet will come together to stop them.

In short FCC wants to destroy Net Neutrality once in USA Net Neutrality dies then it will die in India and all other nations.

Net Neutrality and USA Law?

Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. "Title II" of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)


The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider puts in front of you.


Websites, Internet users, and online communities will come together to sound the alarm about the FCC’s attack on net neutrality. We'll provide tools for everyone to make it super easy for your followers / visitors to act. From the SOPA blackout to the Internet Slowdown, we've shown time and time again that when the Internet comes together, we can stop censorship and corruption. Now, we have to do it again!

On July 12, sites from across the web will display a prominent alert on their homepage that shows the world what the web will look like without net neutrality.

Below is a list of few notable websites, companies, and organizations who have confirmed their participation in the July 12th day of action. The list is broad, and represents a wide range of perspectives and online communities. The one thing all of them agree on: defending Title II net neutrality.
