Open air mass in Nicaragua to demand an end to violence


Nicaraguan Catholic faithful take part in an open air mass, to demand the end of violence in their country, outside the Metropolitan Cathedral in Managua. This comes after a week of protests and clashes with police that left at least 43 people dead, according to a leading human rights group. University students at the forefront of the unrest have issued conditions for talks with the government of President Daniel Ortega.

  • The FCC Says Net Neutrality Will End On June 11

    The FCC announced on Thursday that the 2015 Open Internet Order will formally cease on June 11. The order established federal protections for net neutrality and barred internet service providers from blocking or throttling legal content online. When the Order terminates, the agency’s new rules, passed by the commission’s Republican majority in December, will go into effect. At that point, internet providers will no longer be prohibited from establishing new fees for content creators to have their sites and services delivered to customers at greater speeds. ISPs will also no longer be prohibited from censoring or throttling content whenever they see fit.
