On Thursday, people took to the streets outside Verizon stores across the country to protest FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's decision to end protections for net neutrality. Here are some of the signs we saw outside Verizon's flagship location in New York City.
From across the street the protest was lively enough to hear the chants. This protest was organized by Battle for the Net.
This woman's message -- in faint print at the top of the sign, it says "Free Speech Blogger" -- echoes a concern that the end of net neutrality regulations could hurt smaller alternative media outfits, which might not be able to afford potential fast-lane service to compete with corporate media.
