Sat Apr 16 2011 (Updated 04/17/11) Silicon Valley Protest Against Growing "Electrosmog" with FCC Acting as an Arm of Industry
Stop Smart Meters! Disrupts FCC Talk in Silicon Valley Stop Smart Meters! and allies held a protest both outside and inside the Computer History Museum in Mountain View on April 14th as Julius Genachowski, Chair of the Federal Communications Commission, spoke about the need to increase wireless capacity, ignoring those who suffer ill health from "electrosmog" throughout the U.S. Several passers-by stopped and joined the demonstration, showing that the growing resentment against corporate intrusion into peoples' private lives and the backlash against wireless technology is alive and well even in the midst of the world’s tech capital. Activists smuggled a Stop Smart Meters! banner inside the talk and just when they thought everyone in the audience was about to go to sleep, they stirred things up with a classic banner drop disruption. Almost immediately after the banner drop, others in the audience spoke up about their issues with wireless technologies.
