A Very REAL Threat...
There's a very REAL threat to YOUR Freedom of Speech on the Internet!
"Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign."
NOW just did an excellent program on net neutality/freedom of speech last week. We will indeed be seriously screwed if this effort by the telecommunications companies succeeds. We need to stay vigilant.

Don't miss participating in this discussion, gang. We all depend on the internet for our work these days, and it is indeed under serious assault for freedom of speech - our bread and butter.
It's easy to participate! Take two minutes and Contact Congress Right Here, Right Now!
