Here's the gist; riddle me this: 

How is a Train like the Internet?

They're both common carriers!  

You buy your ticket and decide where you want to go on the train.

You buy your Internet service provider and decide where you want to go on the Internet. 

But that could end in August.

Big Telecoms like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T don't want to just provide Internet service, they want to control the content too - slowing down, diverting or even shutting down our access to the open internet we know and love. 

Imagine being on a train and all of a sudden, you can't get off at your stop - or it takes you twice as long to get there, and costs twice as much. 

That's why we're asking all of you internet users out there to come together on July 12th to spread the word at your local train or metro stations about the importance of an open and accessible internet - just like an open and accessible public transportation system. 

These actions will coincide with an Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality. 

We need our voices to be heard online and off.

We'll send you fliers that show the graphic above and information on Net Neutrality and how to get involved in the fight to Save the Internet!

We must rise together quickly again to defend the Internet!

Solidarity,

Popular Resistance

Popular Resistance seeks to aid in bringing movements for peace, justice, economic fairness and environmental protection together into an independent, nonviolent and diverse movement that can end the power of concentrated wealth, shift power to the people and put human needs before corporate greed.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DEQpAYjVoAQCzqF.jpg 07/09/2017 | Chris Uhlmann, political editor for the Australian Broadcast Corporation, didn’t mince any words when reporting on President Donald Trump at the G-20 summit. 

The newsman’s two-minute broadcast centered entirely on the president’s awkward performance at the international conference and what it meant for the United States as a world power. To Uhlmann, it means nothing good. And the clip, which the Australian outlet tweetedhas resonated soundly with a lot of people.

We must disrupt the "common sense" that is produced in mainstream cultural apparatuses and that serves as glue for the rise of right-wing populism. This is not merely a call for a third political party. Any vision for this movement must reject the false notion that capitalism and democracy are synonymous. Democratic socialism is once again moving a generation of young people. We need to accelerate this movement for a radical democracy before it is too late.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/under-newspaper.jpg June 30, 2017 | The internet was in an uproar Thursday as people took to decrying President Donald Trump for his childish and cruel remarks about the late globalist billionaire, Zbigniew Brzezinski’s daughter, Mika.

While the mainstream media drug Trump through the mud, ad nauseam, for his uncouth and immature comments, their silence — on issues that actually matter — was deafening.

In a most profound tweet on Thursday, Julian Assange weighed in on the issue, making an immensely powerful statement and calling out the ridiculous nature of corporate media and their ability to distract from the crimes of the establishment.

June 9, 2017 | Two years ago we accomplished something amazing together. Nearly 4 million people across the country called on the FCC to put in place strong Net Neutrality rules to protect the internet as a tool for innovation, creativity and free speech. And we won.

Now the free and open internet is once again under attack as Trump's FCC, led by Chairman Ajit Pai, is threatening to roll back these crucial protections. If Pai gets his way, massive cable and phone companies will have the power to control what we see and do online, creating “fast lanes” for those that can afford to pay — and leaving the rest of us in the dust.

We can’t let this happen. Send your comment to the FCC today to protect Net Neutrality.

Net Neutrality rules have governed the internet since its inception, creating a space for free expression to flourish and for startups and small businesses to challenge huge legacy companies. Abandoning control of the internet to the handful of companies that provide broadband service would allow them to bury the speech of those they don't agree with and kill competition from startups before they even get off the ground.

Despite Pai's claim that he supports Net Neutrality, the proceeding he opened last month attacks not only the legal authority underpinning the rules — which is absolutely vital for enforcing them — but seeks to overturn these protections altogether. If Pai gets his way, Net Neutrality will be gone for good and people will be left with only the empty promises of big cable companies to protect them online.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Fight%20Back.jpgIf we want to defeat this attack on Net Neutrality, we’ll need all of you to speak out. Send your comment to the FCC today and tell it to leave Net Neutrality alone.

This administration has gone after so many crucial consumer protections that we have fought for, from ending exploitative prison-phone rates to banning your internet service provider from selling your personal data. The Trump team isn’t working for anyone besides the corporate lobbyists and millionaires that are filling the administration.

We’ve fought and won this battle before and we can do so again. But it’s going to take all of us working together. I will do my best working with my colleagues in the Senate to protect internet freedom, but we’ll need all of your voices engaged and ready to fight.

Thanks so much—

P.S. The Trump administration isn’t working for anyone besides corporate lobbyists and millionaires. We can’t let it destroy Net Neutrality — send your comment to the FCC today.

  • Republicans are working to gut net neutrality and other consumer protections online, and Democrats are using the issue to drive a wedge between the GOP and voters. Meanwhile, the same activists who turned net neutrality into a household name two years ago have vowed to make Republicans pay.
