The “red alert” action will continue until the Senate votes on the CRA, which could happen mid-May. According to Greer, the “Senate vote will be the most important moment for net neutrality since the FCC repeal. Now is the time to fight.”
“This Senate vote will be the most important moment for net neutrality since the FCC repeal.”
—Evan Greer, Fight for the FutureMajor websites including Etsy, Tumblr, and Foursquare already committed to taking part. That means they’ll feature an unmistakable red banner with the text: “The FCC voted to let ISPs ruin the internet. But there’s an imminent vote in the U.S. Senate to overrule them and restore net neutrality. Starting on May 9th until the day of the vote, put your website or social profile on RED ALERT to help sound the alarm and flood lawmakers with calls and emails. Are you in?”
The campaign is also encouraging social media users to help drive phone calls to senators and raise awareness of the issue by changing their profiles and banner images.
“Congress has the chance to rewind a terrible Trump administration policy decision, and one of its least popular, too,” said Craig Aaron, president and CEO of Free Press Action Fund, noting that “net neutrality is overwhelmingly supported by people across the political spectrum: Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike.”
“The FCC’s disastrous vote late last year led to a historic outcry Congress must not ignore. There’s only one way to stand up for real net neutrality—and to stand on the right side of history—and that’s by voting for the resolution of disapproval to restore these essential safeguards,” he continued. “The public will be closely watching who’s looking out for them and who’s only serving phone and cable lobbyists.”
