March on the CPUC to Stop Smart Meters!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Event Type:
Judi Shils
Location Details:
505 Van Ness Avenue (across from City Hall)
San Francisco

We will march on the CPUC Building:
July 20th at Noon
505 Van Ness Avenue (across from City Hall)
San Francisco

We need a strong turn-out with BIG BOLD signs to let the
CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission) know:
We mean business! We will NOT allow Smart Meters
that pulse microwave RF radiation into our homes.
City officials have told us protest is the most effective
way to stop Smart Meters. A protest is not a protest
without people. We need you, your family, friends and neighbors to come to this protest. Thousands of research articles show that RF radiation has major biological effects on living tissue: DNA breaks, cell stress, free radical production, fatigue,
reduction in melatonin secretion, sleep disturbances, extreme fluctuations in blood pressure, chest pain, heart rhythm disorders, heart attacks, strokes, nausea, vomiting, constant thirst, migraine headaches, learning, concentration
and behavioral disorders, ADD, memory loss, premature aging, anxiety, severe depression, collapse (“burnout”) of endocrine and nervous systems, serious leakage of the blood-brain barrier, brain-degenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s), epilepsy, acoustic neuromas (hearing nerve tumors), leukemia, brain tumors, brain cancers. Stand up! Protest for the living and for coming generations!

I live and work in Sonoma County. I'm with you in spirit and really wished that I could be there today. Thank you for organizing the protest. This implementation of wireless access on the smartgrid is hardly justifiable. There's a reason why corporations limit wireless access to their networks - big time SECURITY reasons. I wish I could say it's because they're thinking of our health...not.

Besides, since there is a wired infrastruture, why are we bothering with the expense and complications of using the wireless protocol? It makes no business sense. What are they thinking? Someone may big time money at the public's expense...again.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
