**ACTION ALERT** OCCUPY CA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION (CPUC) THIS THURSDAY DEC. 1ST 9AM 505 Van Ness Ave SF (at McAllister)
Dear Stop Smart Meters! Supporter:
Californians- who have been under attack from utility smart grid radiation- are now facing the prospect of being forced to pay $90 up front and $15/ month simply to receive a "transmitter off" electric meter. Not only have these 'opt out' meters been implicated in health damage, there is NO PLAN to offer opt outs for gas or water meters.
This is extortion. Plain and simple.
An individual opt out plan- even a free one- will not address the insanity of the growing cloud of "electrosmog" caused by cell towers, 'smart' meters and other wireless devices. There is now solid documentation of the serious and pervasive harm this is causing to people, animals, and plants.
WE MUST PULL THE PLUG ON THIS WHOLE DEBACLE *NOW*
Unfortunately, the CPUC and state government don't seem to be getting the message. Maybe they're not hearing us. Maybe we need to TAKE IT UP A NOTCH.
1) ATTEND AND SPEAK OUT at this Thursday's CPUC meeting in San Francisco-
Thursday December 1st 9am 505 Van Ness Avenue (at McAllister) in SF.
The CPUC typically allows public comment of 1-2 minutes, but you must arrive by 8:45am to sign up. If you arrive before the end of public comment (possibly 9:15- 9:30am) you can raise your hand to speak and they must give you 1 min. Take a minute and spread the word to friends and family- let's pack the chambers and remind this commission (and the utilities) who they're working for and who pays their salaries- the 99%!!!
2) CALL AND E-MAIL CPUC COMMISSIONERS, STATE LEGISLATORS AND THE GOVERNOR
The commission as a whole has the power to vote down this extortionate opt out proposal, and they need to know how much we object to it. Comments should be submitted asap, but latest by December 12th. You should also contact your legislators and Gov. Brown at (916) 445-2841.
