Last week Sen. Ed Markey and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer filed a resolution of disapproval that would reverse the FCC’s December 2017 decision to destroy the free and open internet. The entire 49-member Democratic Caucus signed the petition releasing the resolution, and Republican Sen. Susan Collins has said she also supports it.

Under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), the resolution requires only a simple majority to pass.

Monday’s “Red Alert for Net Neutrality” protests, part of a series of actions that kicked off on May 9, were organized by Team Internet, a distributed-organizing campaign that Free Press Action Fund, Demand Progress and Fight for the Future launched last summer.

Team Internet combines people power with technology. The result: a formidable grassroots movement of volunteers pressuring lawmakers to stand up for Net Neutrality.

Here are some inspiring snapshots of Net Neutrality activists at the Red Alert protests.
