Josh and Steve, on behalf of  OpenMedia.org 

You just joined with over 120,000 people from nearly 180 countries to be part of OpenMedia’s Big Telecom vs. the World action in less than 48 hours. That’s amazing!
Now, the Internet is about to unleash a historic firestorm.
Today is the Internet Slowdown Day of Action, which may be the largest day of action for the open Internet the world has ever seen.
Even big websites like Netflix and Etsy are joining us!1 Please join in now while we have the attention of key decision-makers:
Websites all over the net will display an alert with a symbolic "loading" icon that will call on users to speak out against Big Telecom’s plan to slow your favorite websites to a crawl.
We’re talking about millions of people fighting slow lanes on the Internet – and we need you to bring as many of your friends and family into the fight as possible by emailing this message and sharing the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
Your team at OpenMedia wants to make sure our growing global community has a chance to be part of this historic event, so we’ve optimized our action platform to amplify your voice for this day of action.
Now here’s the thing: the biggest campaign in the history of the net only works if you help. So please, take a second, and spread the word about StopTheSlowDown.net to as many people as you can on Facebook and Twitter.
