VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE! HELP SAVE OUR INTERNET! ACT NOW!

Greetings! Brothers and Sisters, If it ain’t one battle it’s another. Straight to the point. I took time out to let you all know (if you don’t know already) that the free and open Internet is at risk of becoming extinct if we don’t act in some form or another. I got wind of this knowledge around New Year’s Eve when I was listening to one of  Prof. Griff and Zaza Ali’s latest weekly interviews on Brother Rich’s Underground Railroad Radio Talk Show  on Youtube (I’m sure some of you if not all are already familiar with this show). Prof. Griff mentioned some info about the fight to keep the Internet free and open called Net Neutrality; this REALLY got my attention.

Net neutrality means that your cell, cable, and internet connection services should treat all websites and services equally. Big corporations like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast want to treat websites and services differently so that they charge us more depending on what we use. Which means that using sites and services like Youtube, Skype, Email, Gaming, Facebook, etc will no longer be free to use! A simple task like sending an email to a friend could become a hassle. In addition, this is a THREAT to free speech, personal privacy, etc. According to time.com the FCC (Federal Communication Commissions) will be voting on new net neutrality rules on February 26th (read it @  http://time.com/3684358/internet-countdown-net-neutrality-fcc/) that may allow the big corporations to have their way!

I researched info on net neutrality and signed the petition at the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) website and I am asking you all to go to aclu.org/net-neutrality, read the information in more details, and sign the petition. They will also ask for your email address to receive updates about this and other battles going to protect civil liberties. Please pass this information along to as many people as possible; to other bloggers, to your followers, family, friends, co-workers, and others  ASAP. Other websites that have information (some others may have petitions too) are: Free Press: Save the Internet (savetheinternet.com/netneutrality), The Open Internet (theopeninter.net/), The Electronic Frontier Foundation (eff.org/issues/netneutrality), and The White House (whitehouse.gov/netneutrality). Thank you!

*Please Note: The ACLU say that the FCC is supposed to vote at the end of this year, which I suppose as of Dec 31, 2014 meant the end of 2014, but people are still signing the petition**

    Thanks for this information OW13. This is urgent news! They have been trying to regulate the internet for years. I knew this was coming when Google bought Youtube. It was obvious to me they writing is on the wall. They want to limit the sharing of information. They know that many people(black and white) se that our freedoms are slowing being taken away. Not to mention that many blogs like yours,mine,Brotha Wolf and others are “waking” up black people. They want to keep us asleep and braindead watching sports,sitcoms and stupid reality shows. But our people are waking up and organizing against this racist corrupt system. So of course, they want slow down our progress by any means. We can NOT stand for this! This is an attack on privacy and free speech! I will post this on Twitter and get the word out. Great post OW13.

      Thank you for spreading the word via Twitter. We need to get as many people on alert ASAP. I told as many people as I could and will be telling more in the coming days. From what I understand there was a fight to keep the open internet a few years ago and the people won.

      The Internet has opened up a whole new world of possibilities and learning. I have been only blogging for a short time and loving it and would hate to have my efforts as well as yours and other bloggers out there cut short. I enjoy conversing with you all and if these people get their way, it will cut out the fun and learning. Like you say, it’s always about greed and control. To make more money off of us 99% and to control people’s mind; we gotta stay awake at all times! There’s an article on the huffington post site (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/27/net-neutrality-fcc_n_6555036.html) that came out Tuesday about net neutrality advocates are seeing signs of victory, but are CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC!

      1. Thanks bro! I need the encouragement because I’m nervous and worried. I’m going to have to talk to the ancestors and use my melanin energies(which a lot of us in the know are most likely doing) for this one and many other things. lol. I’ve come to depend heavily on the Internet as all of us have. As a busy mom with a disabled child, the Internet has given me the opportunity to finish 2 degrees, continuing education (certifications), and possibly be ability to work from home in the near future. It’s a Godsend! These people trying to ruin us all!
        I’m keeping up with this issue as mush as I possibly can and from what I see many people are aware and sign the petition on aclu.org (I haven’t seen any other petitions else where, but there probably is; many people are also protesting in cities across the country . I’ve read some of the comments and I recall one person posting saying if they do this consumers should just boycott and see whether this bs holds up. Lol. I’m just calling on the God forces to just get these EVIL people out of power they’re destroying our lives. I’m sorry I don’t wanna worry you with my worries. I can get annoying when I’m worried. Lol.

      2. No it’s okay. We’re living in scary times. It can be overwhelming at times when you realize what we are up against. But these racist demonic parasites will not win in the end. The melaninanted people will prevail in the end. Just stay strong and have faith. The Most High will burn all these wicked corrupt bastards! This beast of a system will FALL! It’s all built on lies and deceit anyway. Only the righteous will win in the end. As long as we have strong warriors willing to sacrifice for the greater good. And strong loving sistas like you(and others) we can beat this BEAST. Never forget that sis. ❤
