During the last couple of years before she died, Marti was also working to stop "smart meters" and other types of "electro-smog". (For more info, please see: and ).

At Marti's memorial friends and family performed a song that was written by her sister Kate, using words from one of Marti's speeches about defending animals and the natural world in general. A new recording of the song is now posted online, along with its words, links to downloads of it in mp3 format - with and without words, as well as the score.

Please have a listen, pass it on to others, play it on the radio, and sing it yourselves in your communities.
