Bonilla votes against internet freedom

Your representative, Henry Bonilla, dealt a blow to Internet freedom on Thursday.1

As millions of us raised our voices to defend the free and open Internet2, Internet operators like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast spent millions lobbying the House of Representatives to kill Net Neutrality. A majority of the House members caved—voting for a telecommunications law that would give these companies more control over what you see and do online.

All eyes are now on the Senate, which considers this issue next. We face a more friendly environment there, but we've got to act fast—the telecom lobbyists are working on every vote.

Can you call Rep. Bonilla to express your outrage, and then call Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn to demand support for Net Neutrality?

Here are the numbers:

Congressman Henry Bonilla
Phone: 202-225-4511

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison
Phone: 202-224-5922

Senator John Cornyn
Phone: 202-224-2934
