March for a Free and Open Internet

December 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Federal Communications Commission has voted to repeal the net neutrality rules that protect our rights to an uncensored internet. This has profound implications for the way society receives and disseminates information and sets a dangerous precedent of allowing corporations to fully control information flow through financial means. An educated electorate is the foundation of our democracy; the FCC ruling compromises the accessibility to free information and thereby our rights to uncensored free speech that allow civil discourse to exist.

The march:

Begin at 5:00pm at Union Station.

March east toward the Capitol on the 16th street mall accompanied by local brass and drum musicians leading chants and songs.

Brief stop at Verizon store to discuss the influence of ISP’s in this unjust FCC ruling

Arrive at Capitol steps sometime between 5:30 and 6:00pm.

Keynote speakers will discuss the role of media and journalism in democracy and the effect this ruling will have on our discourse.

Performances by Colorado-based brass bands!
