Today I attended a “Battle for the Net” demonstration and rally between the US Capitol and Senate Office buildings in Washington DC.
The event was chaired by Senator E Markey (D-MA). Senator A, Franken (D-MN) spoked, as well as a congresswoman from California, and a representative of the Latino community. I didn’t get the names down.
Generally, the speakers said that fast lanes for big companies would mean most people wouldn’t bother to look at sites of smaller competitors.
I was not allowed to ask a question because I am not a member of the established press. I’ll cover that aspect on a legacy blog (comment). That would seem to undercut one of Markey’s own arguments.
