Title II fans apparently took their "Occupy" protest to FCC chairman Tom Wheeler's house Monday, parking a large banner in his driveway and greeting him when he came out with chants of "Hey, Hey, ho, ho, Tom Wheeler has got to go."

There is also a plan to bookend the protest with a "vigil" at Wheeler's Georgetown home.

That is according to the Fight for the Future campaign—they are also fighting for Title II—which said the protest was organized by PopularResistance.org, the same group that Occupied the FCC in early May before the vote on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on new Open Internet rules. READ MORE

In an update on the White House's We the People site responding to petitions, this one calling for Title II reclassification of broadband access, the White House said the President had "today asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take up the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality, the principle that says Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all internet traffic equally."
