Battle for the net!

Friends-

I just submitted a comment to the Federal Communications Commission in support of Net Neutrality.

The important email below is from the groups behind the new Battle for the Net website -- it explains how you can join their September 10th "Internet Slowdown" protest in support of Net Neutrality.

Please read on and join me in taking a stand!
--
This week's “Internet Slowdown” is taking off. We're driving hundreds of thousands of calls and emails to the FCC and Congress in support of Net Neutrality. The final comment deadline is in just a few days.

More than 50 organizations have their participation in the Internet Slowdown. Dozens of major websites — including reddit, Netflix, Mozilla, Kickstarter, Etsy, Wordpress, and more — made it known that they will take part too.

Will you join them -- and thousands of smaller sites and hundreds of thousands of activists?
If you have a website: Installing our widgets is simple, and will make it easy for your visitors to speak out in support of Net Neutrality. Just click here to get the code:https://www.battleforthenet.com/sept10th/
If you don't have a website: Please forward this email to your friends who do. And visit BattleForTheNet.com to learn about other ways you can take part.
This is a critical moment for the Internet and for our democracy.
Here's how Etsy's CEO put it in an op-ed that ran in Wired this morning, announcing his company's participation:
To be sure, the cable and phone companies are counting on our apathy. After all, businesses are often more conservative than activists and tend to not want to jump alone. But not this time. Our employees care, our communities are invested, and after months of progress, we now have a real shot at victory.
Please join Etsy, dozens of organizations and companies, countless websites, and hundreds of thousands of activists by taking part in the Internet Slowdown.

Together, we're going to win this fight.
