Nonprofit Fight for the Future has planned a day of protest regarding net neutrality. Under the name Operation #OneMoreVote, today, Feb. 27, rallies are planned to take place outside key lawmakers' offices around the country (more detail at The Hill). The organization is also pushing for individuals and businesses to contact their local representatives. Why? To use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the FCC's recent vote to repeal net neutrality. If this CRA can gain one more vote in the Senate, which will need to come from a Republican senator, the measure will move to the House where it again will need a simple majority before being passed to the President. Meanwhile, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is defending the FCC's vote, insisting that "the online experience is going to continue to get better."
