Protests are starting today at the FCC in Washington over a proposal that could end net neutrality. Organized by Popular Resistance and supported by other groups that support net neutrality, the daily protests will lead up to the May 15th FCC meeting. Net neutrality is the concept of equal access to the internet regardless of wealth or money power. The protests beginning today are urging the FCC to reject the proposal to end net neutrality and to reclassify broadband internet accesses a telecommunications service so the FCC can regulate it. Organizers say there will be daily FCC protests until the next FCC meeting May 15th. More than a million comments supporting net neutrality and thousands of phone calls supporting equal internet access have poured in to the FCC.
