The Save the Internet coalition has collected more than 1 million American signatures to their petition urging Congress to "preserve a free and open internet." Mmmmm, freedom.
The coalition held an event in DC to officially deliver the petition to the Senate. According to Free Press campaign director Timothy Karr:
Our real grassroots Coalition called today on Senators to heed
growing public outcry for Net Neutrality as we delivered more than 1
million petitions and letters from average Americans to Capitol Hill.
During the event we urged Congress to protect Net Neutrality and stand
firm against efforts by phone and cable companies to control the
Internet. Senators Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Byron Dorgan
(D-N.D.) joined us to call on their colleagues to support the "Internet
Freedom and Preservation Act" (S. 2917), a bipartisan bill that would
bar companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from blocking,
degrading or interfering with content or services on the Internet.
