Guys, this is a very serious issue coming up. Ignoring 22 MILLION comments and opinion of the American People, Head of the FCC and former Verizon Lawyer Ajit Pai has arbitrarily decided that Net Neutrality has to go. This is unacceptable and we the American people need to do something about it.
Here is what, as a lone person, what you can do to help:
Many businesses, mostly ISPs and Cell Phone Carriers, are in support of appealing Net Neutrality. Call them up and tell them you are cancelling your plan in favor of companies that support Net Neutrality. If your area has a local ISP, a COOP ISP, or heck maybe you can get Google FIber, switch to it. Cancel Hulu, support Netflix; Cancel AT&T or Verizon and switch to TMobile. Make it hurt where it hurts the most, the corporation's bottom line.
CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN AND SENATORS:
Call your local Representative and your state's Senators offices and tell them about your disapproval of this action being taken by the FCC. Be polite, but stern. Do not get into a shouting match with an aide, that solves nothing, stay civil. Use in plain English why net neutrality is bad for you and potentially bad for your business. Go to their town hall meetings if they still have them. Write them a letter, or write that letter as an op ed in your local paper, cause apparently they use that as a barometer for issues still.

GET ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
While we still have Net Neutrality, we can still use social media to spread the word about the injustices of them trying to repeal it. On twitter, use the #NetNeutrality to spread the word. Get your net friends to share their displeasure by retweeting you and makidng their own tweets. Also, tag your Congress Persons as well as your Senators', bombard their dashboard with your mighty tweets. While your at it, tag Ajit Pai as well, just so he has a clogged up dashboard as well. Snapchat pictures of Net Neutrality support, do the same on instagram. Go into a long diatribe in a Facebook wall post. Blot out the front page of Reddit with Pro Net Neutrality posts and articles. Do not let this go away.
Two ways to do this one. The first is low effort but at least is something, sign a petition on the White House petitions page, in support of Net Neutrality. All it takes is 100,000 responses before the White House has to respond, and considering we got 22 Million comments to support it, I don't think this should be an issue. Second is the more traditional picketing kind of protest. Organize a protest with others outside your congress person's office, but be civil about it. Do not curse, do not insult, just stand there with signs and come up with catchy pro net neutrality jingles. If you live in the DC Area, directly protest at the FCC. I am pretty sure there is already a protest being planned, but its still in the early stages, keep an eye out for that on sites like the Net Neutrality subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/KeepOurNetFree/
JUST INFORM PEOPLE:
Everybody and their mum uses the internet now. Its Thankisgiving tomorrow, even though the taboo is politics, religion, and sports on family occasions, this is too important for that. When you bring it up, try to frame it in a way that will affect your relative. Remind your crazy uncle he still needs an open and fair internet to be allowed to view the president's tweets or read Drudge, or listen to Pandora.
In conclusion, there is plenty you can do alone to help support the cause. Real human interaction is the key imo, as apparently just signing a form letter has done nothing so far. Do not give into despair over this. Fight for what we all believe in, a fair and open internet. Protect Net Neutrality people, for us and our posterity.
