Citizens campaign for net neutrality

A coalition of diverse groups has gathered almost 30,000 signatures to deliver to Sen. Patty Murray on Wednesday, urging her to vote in support of net neutrality.

Members of the SavetheInternet coalition plan to deliver the petition to Murray’s office in Seattle, said Kevin Moore, a Microsoft employee and volunteer at MoveOn.org who helped circulate the petition. The Washington state drive is part of a nationwide Internet campaign by the coalition that has collected more than a million signatures. They are targeting senators who have been undecided on the issue in the past, Moore said. While Sen. Maria Cantwell has already come out in support of net neutrality, Murray could be a deciding vote in the Senate, he said.

Bret Chiafalo, a Seattle resident who signed the online petition, had this to say: “My phone or cable company should not be telling me which Web sites I can open on my computer. Senator Murray has a choice. She can take away Internet freedom by turning the Internet over to giant corporations or she can side with constituents by voting to preserve net neutrality.”
