Verizon - FCC net neutrality protests (nationwide - guide, flyer)
Internet users outraged by top Verizon lawyer turned FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality are planning to protest at Verizon retail stores across the country on Thursday, December 7th, one week before an expected vote at the FCC. Protesters will make it clear to members of Congress that the time is now to stand for net neutrality, not Verizon’s bottom line.

Net Neutrality (Content vs. ISPs + FCC)

They vote December 14th. But if Congress gets enough calls, they can stop the FCC.
