In Philadelphia, we already know all about this company’s domination of our internet, cable, and skyline. They raise rates and make tons of money off of us. While our public schools are desperate for funding, Comcast gets public subsidies and pays a tiny tax rate to the city and state that give it so much. Comcast’s 15-year franchise agreement with the City is about to expire, and now is our big chance to hold them accountable and make them pay their fair share.
Together, we’ll watch Comcast: Pay Your Fair Share, a short TV episode we produced. We will talk about how Comcast impacts our communities and how we can make a difference. You can take action – on the spot – by writing comments to the Federal Communications Commission. Free food and drinks will be served.
WHEN: Thursday, August 21st, from 6:30 – 8:30pm
WHERE: Media Mobilizing Project office, 4233 Chestnut Street (enter the church on Chestnut Street near 43rd)
After the film screening we will have a group discussion, collect video stories of your experiences with Comcast, and write comments that will be delivered directly to the Federal Communications Commission in DC to stop Comcast’s proposed $45 billion takeover of Time Warner Cable.
Now is our time to strike back, tell the FCC that Philly stands against a Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger, and build our power to make Comcast accountable here in Philly and beyond.
Join us for this fun and important event: RSVP now.
Looking forward to seeing you!
