Trump’s FCC Moves to Choke Internet Access

Net Neutrality Under Assault

Backbone Campaign

Camille Stewart: “The assault on current Internet protections continues, with the latest target being the principle of the free and open Internet we enjoy today.”

“On May 23, the Federal Communications Commission made its final proposal after voting to start a proceeding to repeal the 2015 net neutrality rules. If FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has his way, net neutrality will be overturned… From this, it is clear the FCC intends to abandon its role in overseeing broadband Internet access.”

“Without net neutrality, ISPs could block unpopular speech and prevent dissident voices from speaking freely online. Without net neutrality, we may not know of many of the injustices perpetuated around the world or in our own backyards!”
