Congress is now pushing through a law that would give control of the Internet to giant companies who want to charge big bucks for things that are currently free or low-cost—everything from posting a webpage to being able to use audio, video, and photos online.

Politicians don’t think we are paying attention to this issue. Many of them take campaign checks from big telecom companies and are on the verge of letting companies like AT&T and Verizon destroy the Internet for the little guy.
We need to act now. Can you sign this petition to your member of Congress asking him or her not to ruin the Internet? Click here:
