From a world where freedom of speech and the exchange of ideas is free on the Internet, may soon be history if COPE becomes the law of the land.
The legislation before congress could gut Net Neutrality and the Internet would not just become the domain of corporations,
it would silence the voices rising out of the wilderness who "seek, receive and impart information and ideas"[Article 19 UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS]who could not afford the fee.
Every representative needs to hear a bold and firm NO from every constituent who uses the Internet asap.
A congress that will not vote against COPE, is a congress that needs to be woken up before next weeks vote!
Any congress that passes this legislation: is a congress that must be replaced.
Rise Up and demand protection for another dieing species in America: FREEDOM of SPEECH! While you still have it, for you may not after next week.
If you truly value your freedoms and liberties you will rise up and contact your representatives to protect Net Neutrality.
CALL CONGRESS: 202-224-3121
Tell your rep to "Vote no on the COPE telecom law if it doesn't protect Net Neutrality. Urge your representative to support the bipartisan Sensenbrenner-Conyers Net Neutrality amendment (HR 5417) which passed the House Judiciary Committee last week with a powerful 20-13 bipartisan majority.
