150+ artists sign petition in support of net neutrality protests
More than 150 artists, actors, and musicians have penned a letter endorsing the hundreds of protests set to take place today at cell service providers and congressional offices nationwide.
Tom Morello, Incubus, Evangeline Lilly, Bassnectar, Against Me!, Alyssa Milano, Michael Stipe (REM), Wil Wheaton, Talib Kweli, Gramatik, Graham Nash, The Glitch Mob, Downtown Boys, Speedy Ortiz, STS9, and Anti-Flag are among the letters signatories, which includes artists from nearly every genre and artistic medium.
“We support the people from across the political spectrum protesting across the country on December 7,” reads the letter, “and we echo their call for our members of Congress to do their jobs and take action to stop the FCC vote that’s planned for December 14.”
Net neutrality is the principle that internet service providers should not be allowed to selectively speed up or slow down internet services in exchange for monetary compensation.
