Users to meet with US Congress over net neutrality

As the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to make a final decision with regard to the US net neutrality rules by the end of the year, a coalition of activists and civil society organisations is planning a new action in support of net neutrality, for late September. The Battle for the Net initiative, which also organised the Day of online action on 12 July, is now encouraging Internet users to travel to Washington DC, on 26–27 September, and meet members of the Congress, to advocate for maintaining the 2015 net neutrality rules. According to the campaign website, meeting with members of the Congress ’is by far the most effective way to influence their positions’ in the ongoing net neutrality debate. Activities in support of net neutrality are also planned throughout the country.
