One of the biggest attacks made to freedom of speech over the past few months was undoubtedly the menace of Net Neutrality coming to an end: last month the FCC (Republican majority) approved Ajit Pai's plan to gut the law that prevented internet providers to interfere with the speed or availability of the content someone sees online.

However, not all is lost: U.S. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer has come forward with the news that Democrats are a single vote away from restoring Net Neutrality, as they now have a total of 50 votes for not only disapproving the law but also preventing it from passing a similar one in the future. They need an extra vote to repeal it, and it has to happen fast since the Senate only has 60 days to challenge a decision like this. The clock is ticking but the battle is still on.
