    Net Neutrality, Internet Privacy and the Public Internet Option

    The battle for net neutrality and internet privacy is local.

    Recently, the ACLU published a report that suggests that, if communities wish to preserve net neutrality and internet privacy, their best bet is to build their own broadband network. Upgrade Cambridge, a grassroots group seeking to persuade Cambridge to build a municipal broadband system, is bringing the author of the report to and hope you’ll attend and spread the word to other net neutrality advocates you might know.

    Upgrade Cambridge and ACLU of Massachusetts Event:

    Public Internet Option, May 16th, 7PM, MIT Stata Center, Room 32-123

    A Better Internet For All: The Public Internet Option Presented by the ACLU
    On May 16th, Upgrade Cambridge and the ACLU of Massachusetts will be hosting a free public event at the MIT Stata Center. ACLU Senior Policy Analyst Jay Stanley will present the ACLU’s recently released report on The Public Internet Option. Like Upgrade Cambridge, the ACLU recognizes the power of community-owned networks in providing a better internet experience. With FCC rollbacks of net neutrality and privacy regulations, growing incumbent telecom monopoly power, and a growing digital divide, it is more important than ever to ensure a better internet for all.

    This event will be a great opportunity to learn more about the power of municipal networks for improving community access, and is free and open to anyone, regardless of their knowledge of municipal broadband. We hope to see you there, and invite you to bring anyone else who might be interested in helping move the city forward towards municipal broadband!

    May Day 2018

    International Workers Day

    Resist Deportations! Fight Back!

    Immediate Permanent Legal Residence for All Undocumented Migrants!

    Permanent Residence for All in the DACA and TPS programs!

    Tuesday, May 1, 5:00 PM

    Boston Common, Parkman Bandstand

    6:30 March to Copley Square

    The government in Washington and the billionaire class are leading a generalized assault on our lives, rights, and living conditions. The leading edge of this assault today is the stepped-up attacks against migrants. Deportations are accelerating. The war on the poor continues. Student debt stands at over a trillion dollars! As US wars have created massive debt and refugees internationally, the consequences of corporate greed at home have created refugees within our own borders. The recent tax cuts for the rich will be at the expense of our living standards. Get ready for more cuts in affordable housing, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and education. Millions of youth and decent hardworking people are under attack! Join us on May Day where our program will address: Migration, Labor Rights, Systemic Oppression, Threats to Human Survival, and the role of capitalism in the current crisis.
