Net neutrality protest in Boston 12/7: come with the FSF!
Verizon is a key participant in the effort to kill net neutrality: Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Ajit Pai is a former Verizon lawyer, and the company has poured millions of dollars into lobbying and lawsuits. This Thursday, we're bringing the fight to their doorstep, joining hundreds of thousands of other defenders of the Internet by protesting at our nearest Verizon store, and we hope you'll join us.
WHEN: Thursday, December 7, 5pm
WHERE: Verizon – 745 Boylston Street, one block from Copley Square
If you want to protest with us, feel free to meet us at the Free Software Foundation's office at 51 Franklin Street in Downtown Crossing -- we will be heading over to the protest at 4:40pm. We encourage you to bring signs and warm clothes. Just remember that we're protesting Verizon executives and lobbyists, and the politicians who support them, not the store employees, so please treat them with respect.
In the meantime: make sure the FCC knows you care about saving net neutrality! You can see our guide to action here.
