Give CPUC President Michael Peevey the send-off into retirement that he deserves after a dozen years of corruption and complicity with corporate utilities.

Protest the CPUC’s proposed decisions in the ‘smart’ meter opt out proceedings. Show strength in unity against their proposals that:

• Ignore serious public safety hazards including toxic injuries, fires, homelessness, violations of privacy, higher bills, loss of meter readers, and no promised energy savings.

• Continue to impose coercive extortion opt out fees

• Violate laws, and deny customer and disability rights

• Prohibit opt-outs for communities, apartment buildings, and businesses

• Reward utility companies with millions $$$ more for smart grid failings

Join us in demanding that the CPUC:

• Reject the proposed decisions-6

• Rescind and refund ‘opt out’ extortion fees

• Halt the ‘smart’ meter program

Bring any other past or present grievances against the CPUC (toxic dumping, nuclear plants, gas line explosions, accessibility, public power, etc.)

Join in demanding:

• Criminal prosecution of CPUC President Peevey and others

• Shut down the aging and hazardous Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant

We will be raising our demands both outside before the meeting, as well as inside. Please come prepared to make some noise and be seen.

Wear black if you can. Rain or shine.

For more information about the proposed decisions, see StopSmartMeters.org
