Take Back Your Power is an eye-opening documentary which investigates the “smart” meter program currently being implemented worldwide by most of the major utility companies. These devices are being installed often without the consent – and sometimes against the protests – of property owners. The film uncovers alarming issues about health, privacy, property rights, corporate fraud, and vulnerability issues inherent in the “smart” grid. Take Back Your Power, is currently in post-production and is coming soon------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------About the Director--- Josh del Sol, Director and Producer of Take Back Your Power, is impassioned by the growing movement of awakening and transformation on our planet. He has a vision for a more coherent and balanced social structure, with foundational values which honor the sanctity of life and human rights. Josh is learning about what Gandhi called “Satyagraha” – which means literally “truth-power” or “truth-force” – and is inspired by those of courage who speak truth to power, from a place of non-violence and vision, and lay the foundation for solutions of a higher vibration to take root.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Special Invited Guests: Mike Gravel, U.
