Dear Friend,

Senators who put the interests of big corporations before their constituents are trying to push through a measure that would give phone and cable corporations complete control over the Internet.1

The net neutrality regulations passed by the FCC last December were incredibly disappointing — weak enough that they barely warranted the name "net neutrality." And now the big telecom companies are working to kill even these perfunctory rules to ensure we maintain some semblance of an open Internet.

If the Senate passes a proposed resolution stripping the FCC of its regulatory power, companies like Verizon and Comcast will have the authority to block our rights to free speech and access to and ability to share information on the internet. We'll lose our last line of defense against an internet run by giant corporations.

URGENT: Tell Sen. Harkin to take a stand against the complete corporate takeover of the internet and vote against the resolution to nullify the FCC net neutrality regulations. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

Because the proposed measure is something called a "resolution of disapproval," we can't filibuster it. The telecoms only need 51 votes in the senate to make their assault on free speech the new law of the land.

If this resolution passes, cable and phone companies will be able to restrict your access to web sites, video services, and mobile applications — and no one will be able to stop them. What's more, the telecoms are well on their way to ramming this measure through the Senate before the public learns about what's at stake.

URGENT: Tell Sen. Harkin to take a stand against a possible corporate takeover of the internet and to vote against the resolution to nullify the FCC net neutrality regulations. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

Thank you for taking action to preserve an open internet.
