Here at SurfEasy we’re huge advocates for Net Neutrality, as you’ll know if you’re a regular reader of our blog. We were thrilled to be part of the Internet Day of Action earlier this year, and we’re still doing our part behind the scenes too.

On July 12th, the internet came together in The Battle for the Net, a web-wide day of action to protest the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s repeal of its own Net Neutrality rules.

But it wasn’t enough.

So now the Battle for the Net is coming to Washington.

On September 26th, Net Neutrality advocates are descending on DC to attend the next meeting of the FCC and ensure that the voice of web users worldwide is being heard.

The next day, the 27th, the protests will then move to Capitol Hill for users to meet with key law makers to discuss what a huge impact the loss of Net Neutrality would have on the web—and on the world.

Fight for the Future, who have long been at the heart of the Battle for the Net, are even putting on training workshops with Public Knowledge, to teach people how to interact with law makers on these key issues.

If you can make it to DC, see how you can get involved—and if not, check out what you can do locally.

The Battle for the Net is far from over—but we are still fighting, and we’re doing it together.
