A lot of websites you visit everyday will be participating

On Wednesday, nearly 200 technology companies, internet activist groups, media outlets and other organizations will participate in the Internet-Wide Day of Action To Save Net Neutrality.

The protest, on July 12, is aiming to bring awareness to the actions the Federal Communications Commission plans to take to dismantle net neutrality, a founding principle of the internet that requires all internet service providers (ISPs) to treat all data delivered to customers equally.

In 2015, the FCC enacted the Open Internet Order, which solidified net neutrality and made it against federal policy for ISPs to slow down one site in favor of another or to block content entirely.

The new leadership of the FCC, under President Donald Trump’s administration, aims to rescind the Open Internet Order—which opponents believe could allow ISPs to take advantage of the lax rules.

Websites across taking part in the Day of Action will display alerts to people visiting them that will alert them of what might happen without net neutrality. Some of the examples include, “Sorry, we’re stuck in the slow lane,” “This is the web without net neutrality,” “This site has been blocked by your ISP,” and “Please upgrade your plan to proceed.”

Several major companies you’ll recognize have agreed to join the protest including Amazon, Netflix, Twitter, Vimeo, PornHub, Reddit, Imgur, and more.

Recently, a group of more than 130 YouTube personalities and online video creators sent a letter to the FCC that said ending net neutrality would have an “outsized impact on our field and jeopardize our livelihood.”
