'Red Alert for Net Neutrality': Campaigners Announce New Effort to Overturn FCC's Assault on Open Internet





With their sights firmly set on restoring the protections the Republican-controlled FCC repealed, advocates for net neutrality on Monday announced a new campaign to get senators' phones ringing off the hook with constituents demanding the lawmakers save the open internet before time runs out.

"Every internet user, every startup, every small business—the internet must come together to sound the alarm and save net neutrality," said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, in a statement announcing the protest. Spam_A Spam_B The "Red Alert for Net Neutrality"—an effort organized by Fight for the Future, Demand Progress, and Free Press Action Fund—will start May 9. That's the date when Senate Democrats will file a petition to force a vote on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the FCC's net neutrality repeal. U.S Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who introduced the resolution, announced the development on Twitter:


The "red alert" action will continue until the Senate votes on the CRA, which could happen mid-May. According to Greer, the "Senate vote will be the most important moment for net neutrality since the FCC repeal. Now is the time to fight."

Showing They Will 'Stop at Nothing to Destroy' Open Internet, Telecom Giants Sue to Block California's New Net Neutrality Law

'Making abundantly clear that they will "stop at nothing to destroy net neutrality for good," four telecom lobbying groups representing the nation's most powerful internet providers and cable companies sued California on Wednesday to stop the state's gold standard open internet legislation from taking effect.

"Big telecom companies hate the California net neutrality bill because it prevents them from screwing over their customers more than they already do," Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, said in a statement. "It's no surprise that they're suing, but it does make it even more blatant and clear that Jeff Sessions and Ajit Pai are working directly on behalf of Big Cable in trying to block basic consumer protection legislation that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support." Spam_A Spam_B "No one wants their cable company to be able to charge extra fees or control what websites they visit and what apps they use," Greer added.

Incensed by SB 822's strong protections against throttling and exorbitant fees, the industry groups behind the lawsuit argued in a statement that the "nation's broadband providers are the innovation engine of America's digital economy" and attacked California's widely praised bill as "a classic example of unconstitutional state regulation."'

Net neutrality ruling kills appeal against protections for free and open internet






'A legal fight over net neutrality has come to an end, with the US Supreme Court refusing to hear an argument over the future of the internet.

The ongoing dispute over the 2016 court ruling, which upheld Obama-era regulations that protected a free and open internet, came to a close with the court refusing to hear it.

That means the broadband industry's attempt to overturn those protections – which ensure that people can't be blocked from using their favourite apps and services – come to an end, and the net neutrality rules will stay in place.

The Trump administration and internet service providers had asked to justices to wipe away the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that had temporarily preserved the net neutrality regulations championed by Democratic former President Barack Obama. But the justices refused to hear the appeals, leaving the lower court ruling in place.

The brief court order noted that three of the court's conservative justices, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, would have thrown out the appeals court decision. Chief Justice John Roberts and new Trump appointee Brett Kavanaugh were both recused from the case.

The Republican-controlled Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 in December along party lines to reverse the rules adopted under Obama in 2015 that had barred internet service providers from blocking or throttling traffic, or offering paid fast lanes, also known as paid prioritization.

Obama's rules, intended to safeguard equal access to content on the internet, were opposed by Trump, a Republican.'

Ajit Pai Won't Be Laughing Long,' Say Internet Defenders

'Ajit Pai Won't Be Laughing Long,' Say Internet Defenders, After FCC Chair Applauds Death of Net Neutrality
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/01/02/ajit-pai-wont-be-laughing-long-say-internet-defenders-after-fcc-chair-applauds-death






As Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chair Ajit Pai applauded House lawmakers on Wednesday for refusing to restore net neutrality before last month's deadline, open internet advocates vowed to keep up the fight for net neutrality in 2019 and promised that "Ajit Pai won't be laughing long."

"It's an uphill battle, but we are winning the fight to restore net neutrality," Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, declared in a statement. "The internet freedom movement is stronger than it's ever been as we head into 2019. We'll keep fighting in the states, in the courts, and in Congress. It's only a matter of time before net neutrality is the law of the land again."

While open internet advocates failed in their ultimate goal of fully repealing Pai's attack on net neutrality—which the Republican-controlled FCC rammed through in December of 2017 despite opposition from the vast majority of Americans—Greer noted that the fight to pass the net neutrality Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution "shined a giant spotlight on corruption in Congress."

"Every single lawmaker who voted against the CRA in the Senate or failed to sign on to the discharge petition in the House has exposed themselves as industry puppets. They put the interests of telecom giants like Comcast and AT&T over the basic rights of their constituents," Greer said.

See where every member of Congress stands on net neutrality here.

"We used the CRA as a powerful tool to get lawmakers on the record," she continued. "Pundits claimed it would never pass the Senate—but we channeled internet outrage into real political power and got more than enough votes. If House leadership had allowed a vote on the CRA, we likely would have won that too."

Web activists keep hope for net neutrality alive as open Internet defenders take the FCC to court
http://www.fightforthefuture.org/news/2019-01-31-web-activists-keep-hope-for-net-neutrality-alive/





Tomorrow, net neutrality will get it’s day in court. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will hear oral arguments in the legal challenge to Ajit Pai’s reckless and resoundingly unpopular repeal of open Internet protections, brought by a coalition of startups, states, and public interest groups.

Digital rights group Fight for the Future, which has been behind the largest online protests in history and mobilized tens of millions of people to defend net neutrality, issued the following statement, which can be attributed to Deputy Director Evan Greer (pronouns: she/her):

Quote
“Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T are going to wish they never picked this fight with the Internet. More than a year after the repeal of net neutrality people are still outraged and paying close attention. Ajit Pai’s FCC blatantly ignored public opinion and acted with reckless disregard for the law in order to give a massive government handout to some of the most power-hungry corporations in the US.

Telecom lobbyists were hoping that we would have given up by now. They thought they could outspend and outlast us. They were wrong. Internet activists are continuing to fight in the courts, in Congress, and in the states. Net neutrality is coming back with a vengeance. It’s only a matter of time.”


Fight for the Future has been calling on Congress to conduct a thorough investigation of Ajit Pai’s corrupt actions at the FCC, and is pushing for lawmakers to act to restore net neutrality while opposing weak legislation pushed by telecom lobbyists that would undermine the open Internet while claiming to save it.'

80 Percent Of Americans Support Reinstating Net Neutrality

80 Percent Of Americans Support Reinstating Net Neutrality
http://www.womensystems.com/2019/03/80-percent-of-americans-support.html





'A new poll conducted after Democrats introduced the Save The Internet Act, a bill that would restore net neutrality rules, shows wide support for the issue across the political spectrum.

Comparitech asked more than 1,000 Americans about the “basic tenets of net neutrality” and found that more than 80 percent of those polled supported it. The support went across political ideology, with nearly 87 percent of Democrats, nearly 80 percent of independents, and 77 percent of Republicans agreeing with the “basic tenets.”

The poll was conducted the week after the Save The Internet Act was announced by lawmakers. The bill would undo the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) repeal and codify the 2015 Open Internet Order, which ushered in net neutrality rules. It is expected to receive a vote in the House of Representatives in early April. Comparitech’s results were similar to a number of other polls conducted in the past.

However, it also touches on the debate currently playing itself out in Congress surrounding Title II of the Communications Act.

The Save The Internet Act would revert back to the Open Internet Order, which classified internet service providers (ISPs) under Title II, and subjects them to utility-style regulations. Republicans have pushed hard against this in a number of congressional hearings.

The poll found that 55.8 percent of people who said they opposed net neutrality actually agreed with classifying ISPs as a “telecommunication service,” which is what would happen under Title II.

Meanwhile, 79.7 percent of people who supported net neutrality also agreed with that idea.'

FBI to Look at Your Web Browsing History Without a Warrant

Senate Votes to Allow FBI to Look at Your Web Browsing History Without a Warrant
The government just got even more power to spy on your internet habits as millions remain quarantined at home.
by Janus Rose
May 13 2020, 8:32pm
https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/jgxxvk/senate-votes-to-allow-fbi-to-look-at-your-web-browsing-history-without-a-warrant

The US Senate has voted to give law enforcement agencies access to web browsing data without a warrant, dramatically expanding the government’s surveillance powers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The power grab was led by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as part of a reauthorization of the Patriot Act, which gives federal agencies broad domestic surveillance powers. Sens. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Steve Daines (R-MT) attempted to remove the expanded powers from the bill with a bipartisan amendment.

But in a shock upset, the privacy-preserving amendment fell short by a single vote after several senators who would have voted “Yes” failed to show up to the session, including Bernie Sanders. Nine Democratic senators also voted “No,” causing the amendment to fall short of the 60-vote threshold it needed to pass.

“The Patriot Act should be repealed in its entirety, set on fire and buried in the ground,” Evan Greer, the deputy director of Fight for the Future, told Motherboard. “It’s one of the worst laws passed in the last century, and there is zero evidence that the mass surveillance programs it enables have ever saved a single human life.”

The vote comes at a time when internet usage has skyrocketed, with tens of millions of Americans quarantined at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Privacy advocates have warned for over a decade that allowing warrantless access to web search queries and browsing history allows law enforcement to easily crack down on activists, labor organizers, or anyone else the government deems a threat.

“Today the Senate made clear that the purpose of the PATRIOT Act is to spy on Americans, no warrants or due process necessary,” Dayton Young, director of product at Fight for the Future, told Motherboard. “Any lawmaker who votes to reauthorize the PATRIOT Act is voting against our constitutionally-protected freedoms, and there’s nothing patriotic about that.”
