Mass Rally in SF against Smart Meters

category national | sci-tech | news report author Thursday September 08, 2011 09:36author by getouttamyhead Report this post to the editors

The world recognises EHS as genuine - in Ireland you only think you're sick

In Ireland, you’re psycho. In Sweden the government recognizes electromagnetic sensitivity as a medical condition. In Spain this week the courts recognized the condition following assessment by a group of experts. In San Francisco organizers have announced plans for a mass rally against Smart Meters.

In Ireland, you’re psycho. In Sweden the government recognizes electromagnetic sensitivity as a medical condition. In Spain this week the courts recognized the condition following assessment by a group of experts. In San Francisco organizers have announced plans for a mass rally against Smart Meters.

Tests in Ireland were recently declared a success.

According to a 2007 report by Dr. Sarah Doyle, a specialist in Public Health Medicine for the Regional health forum (HSE-South): “GPs in Ireland should be provided with information about the appropriate treatment for EHS symptoms and be informed that the symptoms are NOT due to EMF exposure.”

(For a full explanation of the Spanish Ruling see: http://www.noticiasmedicas.es/medicina/noticias/10451/1....html)

Meanwhile a call has been issued in San Francisco for a mass protest next week:

******ALERT: MASS PROTEST/ PRESS CONFERENCE SEPT. 14 12:30PM******
 
***‘OPT OUT’ WORKSHOP ALL DAY 9:30 A.M.- 5 P.M.***
 
***CA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION 505 VAN NESS, SF***
 
It’s time to separate “smart” meter fact from "smart" meter fiction:
 
Myth: The utilities claim that smart meters are a fraction of the radiation levels of cell phones.
Fact: “Smart” Meter radiation is significantly stronger than from cell phones- see http://stopsmartmeters.org/2011/09/04/comparing-cell-ph...tion/
 
Myth: The CPUC defers to the FCC on maximum allowable wireless pulses.   The FCC claims that no “non-thermal” biological effects exist.
Fact:  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) found chemical changes in the brain from cell phone exposure, a ‘smoking gun’ finding that demonstrates a clear non-thermal effect.  See http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/02/22/cellphone-use-...vity/
 
Myth:  The utilities have been citing the World Health Organization (WHO) to justify the safety of their radiation emitting “smart” meters.
Fact:  On May 31st, 2011 the WHO classified smart meter radiation as a Class 2B carcinogen.  See http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2011/pdfs/pr208_E.pdf (pdf) The utilities no longer refer to the WHO at all.
 
Myth:  CPUC President Michael Peevey has been insulting electro-sensitive individuals, inferring that they are “just making it up” or are “psychosomatic”
Fact:  On Sept. 5th, the International Journal of Neuroscience reported that “EMF hypersensitivity can occur as a bona fide environmentally inducible neurological syndrome.”  See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21793784
 
Attend the all day "opt out" workshop, which will be held in the main auditorium at the CPUC- 505 Van Ness Ave. in San Francisco- starting at 9:30am until 5pm.  Let’s pack the chambers!
 
Join us during the lunch break at 12:30 to make some noise and protest this illegal opt out extortion plan.

Our demands:
 
-Charging a fee based on a medical condition is immoral not to mention illegal under CA Utility Code. Analog opt-outs must be at no cost.
 
-Communities retain the right to say NO to the ‘smart’ meter program.
 
-Pull the plug on the wireless mesh network.  Period.
