" . . . Last year, California's Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) was required after an investigation to pay $390,000 to the state's General Fund after it was discovered that they were spying on anti-smart meter activist groups.
"Imagine if AT&T set out to install FCC-regulated cell network repeaters on everyone's rooftops -- all homes in the US -- without permission or compensation. That they just went out and did it, in the interest of improving their network coverage, and improving their for-profit bottom line," Josh del Sol, a researcher and director of a documentary titled "Take Back Your Power," said to FoxNews.com. "Pretty ridiculous, right? This is theft, and if they were a government agency it would be an obvious violation of the latter part of the Fifth Amendment in addition to the Fourth."
"How, pray tell, are utilities able to get away with what amounts to the exact same thing," he added. "They [power utilities] would say that 'they have easement,' but does this easement include the right to broadcast an FCC-regulated microwave transmitter on your home, taking your private property to do so, for their benefit, and without your consent?" . . .

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING USDOJ SMART METER COMPLAINTS - U.S. Department of Justice
The U.S. Dept. of Justice is considering the smart meter problem. If they receive numerous complaints, it could really turn the tide. Pass this on to every legally disabled person you know who is sickened by RF radiation from smart meters. Now is the time to do our part and be heard. This is the time for action. File a complaint if you have been denied an accommodation (keeping your analog meter, being denied a zone of safety) or if you are being charged for the accommodation you were granted. Keep on track. This is not the place or the time to debate the dangers of smart meters. At this time, this is specifically about violation of the A.D.A. law. . .

"Hydro Quebec is getting ready to roll out its new smart meters in the rest of the province after nearly completing the operation in the Montreal area.
"And opponents are none too pleased.
"A group of 20 people demonstrated before heading into this morning's Energy Board hearings on the authorization of the second and third phases of the installation. Another protest is planned for this Saturday.
"The Refuson les Compteurs collective has tabled over 440 briefs before the Energy Board. They describe the smart meter's impact on their health and the grief they get from Hydro workers when they refuse to have them installed. "Rosemont resident Julie Rocque said she put two and two together after doing some research and coming upon studies as well as the Refusons les Compteurs movement.
"For me it was a lot of heart palpitations, real difficulty concentrating, weird fatigue all of a sudden, like fatigue drops, things I've never had in my life," Rocque told CJAD 800 News.
"To me I was able, by chance, to put it together but a lot of people are not able to put it together, because a lot of these symptoms are things that could be caused by other things, insomnia, headaches, etc."
"The collective is calling for a moratorium on the installation until more studies are done.. . .

"Smart meters have been installed on our homes by utilities in many provinces and states in North America as part of a new Automated Metering Infrastructure. Unfortunately, using microwave radiating devices was a poor health choice that could have been avoided if Powerline Communications (PLC) technologies or other dedicated wired or fibre optic cables had been utilized instead. The most common smart meters transmit thousands of short bursts of powerful microwave radiation at frequencies between 902-928 MHz both day and night. In most places they are configured s part of a mesh network transmitting and retransmitting utility usage information not only from your home but also from all of your neighbours' homes. They represent the latest additional wireless microwave radiation source that burdens our population, along with the already ubiquitous exposure from cellphones, cordless phones, and Wi-Fi from wireless routers, computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones that are now so prevalent. Microwave radiation is cumulative. Over long time periods, even low levels of microwave radiation that these devices emit can overwhelm the body's innate repair processes of damaged DNA strand breaks.
