Important Message From Care2 & ThePetitionTeam - Media Giants To Privatize Internet - Tell Them NO
You think the Internet will always be the great freewheeling information superhighway you've grown to love? Well, think again. Media giants want to privatize our Internet. Take Action! http://go.care2.com/e/JpE/Jv/BhwO

Network neutrality is the principle that Internet users should be able to access any web content or applications they choose without restrictions or limitations imposed by their Internet service provider. For example, if you are shopping for a new appliance online you should be able to shop on any and all websites, not just the ones with whom your provider has a preferred business relationship. Now, corporate interests want to violate the principle of network neutrality in order to increase their own profit margins. They must not be allowed to destroy the free and open culture of the web! http://go.care2.com/e/JpE/Jv/BhwO

Telecommunications companies like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress for the right to control where you go on the Internet, how fast you get there, and how much you pay for the service. In other words, your favorite’s websites and blogs might be left in the slow lane of the information superhighway. Our first step is to send a strong message now to the big industry execs. Tell them that the principle of net neutrality needs to be honored, and that Internet service providers (ISPs) should not play gatekeepers! http://go.care2.com/e/JpE/Jv/BhwO
