As predicted, all three men voted to dismantle the protections. Please go to their twitters and call them gopher fuckers.

You may panic, but be smart. There are plenty of lawsuits waiting in the wings. Net Neutrality repeals have failed twice before when taken to court. However- do not bank on it, there is always a chance for this slimy shit to slither right through.

What you should do right now is call Congress and tell them what you think.
If we are quick enough we can force them into using the CRA- the Congressional Review Act. You can tell them you want that.  
We have 60 days to do this.

Here’s a link with some info.
You’ll see a script on your screen, or you can say something like this:
I support Title II net neutrality, and I urge you to use the Congressional Review Act to pass a “resolution of disapproval” reversing the FCC’s December vote to repeal the Open Internet Order.”
You also need to call your Senators and Representatives, especially if they received money from any telecom companies (Verizon, Comcast, AT&T and so on). Give. Them. Hell.
You can also Text “BATTLE” to 384-387 to use a simple chat-bot to send a message to your lawmakers.
Text “RESIST” to 50409 for ResistBot.
Here is a page from the ACLU with instructions.

If you are outside of the US, consider donating to these organizations- they will continue the fight for the free internet.


Also FCC people to spam with emails

If it helps, big internet service providers aren't going to be making any big changes or block any websites since they know they'll trigger their customers and/or cause lawsuits; they don't want to get involved in that. I'm not sure if I understand the situation fully and I don't know the whole story regarding which company is on which side, but it seems like companies like Comcast and AT&T, just to name a few, are more on our side than Pai's. It may be to protect themselves, but we've still got some big companies with us. Thankfully it's not "Pai and All Huge Corporations vs. Society as a Whole". That does make things a bit less scary.

Although we'll still have to be on our toes since the only thing protecting us now are these companies who could hire the wrong people and succumb to greed. 

This is where I got the info from:…

And you're right, we can still fight. It ain't over yet.
