When you use the internet, you expect to be able to access every site, as quick as a type, click, and an enter. But your ability to do this may be at stake, thanks to Ajit Pai, the leader of the FCC, who wants to take this ability away from us.

If we loss net neutrality, what would that mean for us? If we loss our net neutrality, we would have to pay money to access certain sites. For example, if you wanted to watch a video on YouTube, you would have to pay your internet service provider to access the website at all. This means that you wouldn’t be able to use Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, or anything else, you would have to pay money to even be able to click “like” or “post”.

If you don’t understand this visual yet, imagine this: You pay plenty of money to be able to use water in your house, but you have to pay money to use the kitchen sink. You can’t use your bathtub either. You pay money to be able to use water to brush your teeth, flush the toilet, and take a shower, but you can’t even get a glass of cold water. This sounds absurd, right? It is.  Many people are fighting against the removal of net neutrality.

If you want to fight for your power to use the internet, please put in your say by filling out this petition (http://act.freepress.net/sign/internet_wake_up_destroy/?source=what) or by writing Congress here (https://www.battleforthenet.com/#bftn-action-form). If we want to keep the internet working as it is without being charged, we need to fight for it!
