Hi all,

I'm pasting EFF's outreach email below, but let me add: PLEASE COME! The
rally will be awesome, with puppets and projections.

And the hearing will also be pretty amazing. Expect to hear from leading
experts in the debate.

Speakers include:  Former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps; Amy Sonnie,
Outreach Director of the Oakland Public Library; Jay Nath, Chief
Innovation Officer for the City of San Francisco; Corynne McSherry,
Director of Intellectual Property at the Electronic Frontier Foundation;
and Malkia Cyril, Executive Director of the Center for Media Justice;
Dane Jaspers of Sonic.net; Tim Pozar of Fandor,  Chris Witteman of the
CPUC; with testimony from groups like Greenlining, Dave Steer from
Mozilla, Tracy Rosenberg of Media Alliance, amongst others.

We'll start at 5:30 with a rally outside City Hall and at 7 the event at
City Hall begins.

Please share on social media and if a any representatives from
Noisebridge or Sudo want to speak at the rally, please be in touch. I
also encourage everyone to testify at the hearing. 60 seconds for each
person who provides testimony.

Best, April

    Dear Friend of Digital Freedom,

You are invited to join EFF next Thursday, November 20, for a free
public event on the quickly unfolding national debate on net neutrality
<https://www.eff.org/issues/net-neutrality>, to be hosted at San
Francisco City Hall.  

The event <http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/933163> is "Bay Area
Speaks: A People's Hearing on the Future of the Internet," where you are
invited to testify at City Hall about why net neutrality matters to Bay
Area communities. Attendees will also receive an update from the
lawyers, policy analysts, and activists who have been working on the
front lines to make sure the FCC takes the right path forward.

Before the hearing, supporters will rally outside City Hall at 5:30pm
and are encouraged to bring cell phones, laptops, and flashlights for a
cell phone vigil and to hold signs and colorful art to demonstrate
support for Internet freedom. Download this image to display on your
screen at the rally.

The People's Hearing comes at a key moment in the debate over net
neutrality. Last Monday, President Barack Obama issued a statement
<https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/11/white-house-gets-it-net-neutrality-will-fcc-0>
in support of full, clear net neutrality rules, echoing the demands of
the 4 million Americans who have spoken out in favor of the same reforms
throughout the year. The FCC is weighing its options now and is expected
to act as early as December.

It's time to make sure California voices are heard in the national
discussions.The fight isn't over yet; come meet us
<http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/933163> at the front lines.

Hope to see you there,

April Glaser
Activism Team

PS: Can't make it to the event? We'll be streaming live

November 20.
