Organizer/AuthorRaging Grannies Action League
We start with a photo op at 4:30pm in front of the Digital DNA sculpture in Lytton Plaza. It is close to Emerson St. toward the back of the plaza. Then we march across the street to Verizon creating a march loop between the two locations. If you can't march, no problem! Stake outs to be held at both terminal points.
AT 6:00pm enjoy guerrilla art light projections at both locations.

We will have some signs, but please bring your own if you can. "No Censorship" or any message appropriate to the issue you want.

Monopolistic ISP’s can block and censor what we see online if internet neutrality is gutted! Censorship is a big issue. Photo ops during the event in front of the Digital DNA egg shaped sculpture covered with printed circuit boards in Lytton Plaza. This large sculpture is slated for decommission by the Palo Alto Public Art Commission so now is the time to see it, and of course it is a superb backdrop to our demo as a symbol of the internet age.

Internet users outraged by top Verizon lawyer turned FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality are planning to protest at Verizon retail stores across the country on Thursday, December 7th, one week before an expected vote at the FCC. Protesters will make it clear to members of Congress that the time is now to stand for net neutrality, not Verizon’s bottom line...please remember, this event is about protesting actions of Verizon executives, lobbyists and their supporters in Washington, not the employees at these stores.
