Major telecommunications companies are spending millions lobbing the U.S. congress to make the Internet into a private network. In political lingo this means abandoning what is called “Net Neutrality”. In common sense terms it’s about the government withdrawing our right to Internet Freedom, it’s about the Death of The Internet. This V-Doc. (viral documentary) is about the current threat to Internet Freedom and how we can hold on to the open Internet and our right to communicate.
The only way the telecommunications companies will be successful is if we fail to raise awareness about this situation. If people find out that we are about to lose our Internet Freedom there is no way they will allow congress to do this.
This congressional decision will set a monumental precedent, and thus, impact not just U.S. citizens, but citizens all over world.
