March for Net Neutrality

December 1, 2017 @ 12:00 am

We will meet at Delaware Park near the *Statue of David*, and then we will march to Nottingham Terrace, and up Delaware Avenue to the Verizon Store (2290 Delaware Ave Suite 800, Buffalo, NY 14216). We will leave the park at 4:30 sharp and arrive at the store around 5:00 PM. Feel free to meet either for the march or directly at the Verizon store. This is a change from the original plan, to sync up with the national day of action for Net Neutrality. Sponsored by Buffalo for Freedom, UB Democrats, March for Science, and the WNY Peace Center.

An overwhelming majority of Americans support Net Neutrality, yet the FCC is still hoping to get rid of it. We aren’t just rallying for a free internet, but for basic democratic values! More below!

Since the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai was born in Buffalo, it seems even more important that we show Washington that real Buffalonians oppose him and his ISP-backed attack on a free and open internet.

Please dress appropriately for December in Buffalo!

Make signs! Make your message visible to passersby and drivers! We want people to know why we are protesting!

And reminder that this is a peaceful protest!
