Back in 2008 Obama made it clear on the campaign trail that he would “take a backseat to no one” in his commitment to Net Neutrality. Yet Obama’s FCC has taken a wrong turn by proposing rules that would permit Internet providers to speed up or slow down our access to parts of the Internet.
This Wednesday, July 23rd, President Obama will be in Silicon Valley at a fundraiser, and you’re invited to join EFF in greeting him. Our allies in the fight for Net Neutrality are organizing a rally, and EFF’s own director of intellectual property, Corynne McSherry, will be there to say a few words about why we must defend network neutrality for the future of free speech and innovation online.
When: Wednesday, July 23rd at 9:30am
Where: Los Altos, CA (at intersection of S San Antonio Road and W Edith Ave)
- Road closures are common when the president is in town. Once you RSVP the rally organizers will be in touch with further logistical details.
Over 1 million people have taken action in the past few months, urging the FCC to preserve the open Internet. Now it's time for Obama to keep his promise and stand for nothing less than real Net Neutrality.
