The Google and Verizon are facing a huge backlash against their plan to give corporate control over today's fair, open Internet.
The media has trashed the deal as a giant corporate power-grab, and over 300,000 people, including you, have signed petitions calling on Google to drop this disastrous proposal.
The Obama administration and Congress have the power to block this deal, but they aren't going to stand up to this alliance of giant corporations unless we show that the public is strongly against it.
That's why we're holding a rally at noon this Friday, August 13th in front of Google headquarters. The event is at the corner of Amphitheatre Parkway and Charleston Road in Mountain View in California.

The Google-Verizon plan would create two separate, unequal sections of the Internet—one for big business that would be high-speed and exclusive, and then the inferior, slow "public Internet" that would be available to the rest of us.
Free speech online could become a thing of the past, and the Internet would become like cable TV, with a limited number of websites controlled by big media corporations.
President Obama and the FCC have the power to block this deal, but the united lobbying power of Google and Verizon could be too much to overcome—unless we can clearly show that the public is against their plan to turn control of the Internet over to corporations.
