The internet has become so much a part of the lives of most Americans that it is easy to imagine that it will always remain the free and open medium it is now. We’d like to believe it will remain a place where you can always access any lawful content you want, and where the folks delivering that content can’t play favorites because they disagree with the message being delivered or want to charge more money for faster delivery.

But there are no such guarantees.

If the Trump FCC has its way, this open internet — and the “network neutrality” principles that sustain it — could be a thing of the past. The quest for profits and corporate disfavor of controversial viewpoints could change both what you can see on the internet and the quality of your connection. And the incentive to monitor what you do online in order to play favorites means even more consumer privacy invasions piled on top of the NSA’s prying eyes.

Don’t let it happen.

Join fellow activists for a protest on Thursday, December 7 at 4pm at the Verizon Wireless in Rehoboth at 37156 Rehoboth Avenue.

Coming South on Route 1 go left at the light going into Rehoboth. Make an immediate right at The Point (bakery/café). You will see a Verizon sign over a bank, go around to the back of the parking lot and on the left you will see the Verizon Bldg. When leaving, you can exit directly onto Rt. 1 north.

Coming North, go right into the parking area where you will see at Long & Foster sign – just passed the Rehoboth Animal Hospital and just about across from Big Fish.
