Evan from Fight for the Future writes, "Since Wednesday May 7th, net neutrality activists have been camped out on the FCC's doorstep in Washington, DC with tents, sleeping bags, signs, and a giant banner that says 'Don't break the Internet.'
Affectionately dubbed "Occupy the FCC," the encampment has been growing steadily each day gathering support from tech companies, activist groups, and even FCC employees who have stopped by in droves to express their support.
The camp has one clear demand: to protect equality and freedom of speech on the Internet, the FCC must reclassify broadband as a common carrier under Title II of the Communications Act. That sounds like a bunch of technical, yawn-inducing, legal crap, but really it's the only path to reigning in Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T who would just as soon turn the Internet into a walled off, pay per view, slow-fest. Don't let them. Join us!
