The Guardian reports that some of the biggest and most popular sites on the web plan to participate in Go Slow Day. Among them are companies like Etsy, FourSquare, KickStarter, Mozilla, Reddit and Vimeo.
In a blog post, the net advocacy group Fight for the Future explained what form the Go Slow Day protests will take:
“Sites participating in the slowdown will display prominent messages that include an infinitely-spinning ‘site loading’ icon — or the so-called ‘spinning wheel of death’ — to symbolize what surfing the web could be like without net neutrality. These alerts will direct the sites’ users to call and/or email policymakers in support of net neutrality.”
