Dear MoveOn member,
In the battle of organized money vs. organized people, regular people just
scored a huge victory.
Last Friday, after months of feeling the heat from constituents, the
Senate adjourned without passing the horrible bill that would permanently
kill Net Neutrality. Together, we dealt a blow to AT&T and Verizon's
attempt to control the Internet, and we're well positioned to push a
strong Internet freedom agenda in 2007.
But our job's not done. Net Neutrality opponents will try to kill Net
Neutrality in the "lame duck" Congress--the period right after the 2006
elections when Congress is most unaccountable. We must act now to keep the
pressure up during the election season, and one way is to register
thousands of new "Internet freedom voters."
Can you register to vote--or get at least one friend registered to
vote--as an "Internet freedom voter" today?
Here's an easy-to-use voter registration link:
"Internet freedom voters" are people who care about Internet freedom
and want their voices heard in the political process. We will keep tally
of "Internet freedom voters" and ensure politicians and the media hear
With Congress adjourned, AT&T and Verizon have already begun to take their
campaign to the states. We need to keep the heat on politicians so they
remember after Election Day that voters demand Net Neutrality--and nothing
speaks louder than new voters marching to the polls.
