Although BC Hydro's deadline to force us all into compliance has passed, there are still options for those who don't want a WHO-declared possible carcinogen emitting radiation 24/7 in their most private spaces, their homes.
We still have rights - to privacy, to health in own homes - but we must act to defend ourselves against this predator corporation. Right now there are two groups of like-minded people who are organizing for our rights: www.citizensforsafetechnology.org has a lot of facts about the smart (stupid) meters as well as links to a class action suit that you can still join.
Also at bcfreedom.wordpress.com - Freedom, there is another route you can take called The BC Freedom Process, a legal process. We have a group who has been assisting in filling out the forms, as they can be confusing. In the new year, we will be meeting in Roberts Creek to assist with this and other questions around this process and to gather in solidarity, since the process of the theft of our rights as citizens in our own homes has been onerous and psychologically difficult for many.
And this is just the beginning. As soon as BC Hydro claims success, the other utilities will be close on their heels, forcing us to have even more 24/7 radiating meters to calculate and sell info on our every move: water, gas. We're all going to be tied at the umbilical cord to the great corporate entity. It's the next human health experiment, like cigarette smoking, replacement hormones, thalidomide and nuclear radiation was, before the human cost was evident all around and consensus finally agreed on their obvious harm.
