Free Press Action Fund

Dear Sunny B,

Comcast is getting ready to appeal this recent FCC ruling. We need your help to fight back.

Free Press Action Fund
right now

A few days ago, the FCC dealt Comcast a crushing blow -- ruling that the cable giant had no right to block consumers’ access to the open Internet.

But that landmark victory for Net Neutrality is already in danger. Comcast is working to reverse or dilute the FCC’s ruling, and we need your help to stop them.

While Comcast’s lobbyists look for ways to weaken or sidestep the FCC’s 3-2 mandate, its lawyers are getting ready to challenge the ruling in court. They know -- and we know -- that if Internet users win this first major Net Neutrality battle, Big Media’s dreams of controlling and profiting from Internet traffic will collapse.

Your support helped Free Press lead the charge to punish Comcast for blocking Internet traffic. Now we need your help again. Comcast made $3.3 billion in profits last year. So they can spend whatever it takes to drive a wedge through our one-vote FCC victory.

The only way to beat organized money is with organized people... but it does take some money to do that organizing.

Help Free Press Raise $30,000 to Keep Comcast on the Ropes. Contribute Now.

With your contribution, Free Press will:

  • Respond swiftly to legal challenges to the FCC’s ruling
  • File complaints against other companies that block the Internet or violate Net Neutrality
  • Lobby this Congress -- and the next one -- to make Net Neutrality the law of the land

This recent victory at the FCC is too important to let slip away. Please give what you can today.

With thanks,

Josh Silver

P.S. Comcast won't take this FCC decision lying down. And with your support, neither will we. We'll fight just as hard to preserve this victory as we did to win it. This is a pivotal moment in the fight for Net Neutrality. Let's make sure that this big win wasn't just a flash in the pan. Contribute to the Free Press Action Fund now..
