Net neutrality supporters plan online protest in the USA

In the USA, supporters of net neutrality are planning an online protest on 12 July, to advocate against the plans of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to roll back net neutrality rules. The ‘Internet-wide day of action to save net neutrality’ initiative involves, among others, major Internet companies such as Amazon, Mozilla, and Reddit, as well as organisations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the World Wide Web Foundation, and Public Knowledge. According to the campaign website, the preparations are still under way, but the plan is for ‘websites, Internet users, and online communities to come together to sound the alarm about the FCC’s attack on net neutrality’.
