For those in British Columbia who have kept their analog meters, the recommended process remains the one provided by www.bc-freedom.com, who have put an astounding level of research into their documentation and tailored it for BC. As new developments continue to be made, we feel that asserting the individual liability of those responsible for ‘smart’ grid deployments (and the resulting ubiquitous harm and rights violations) will prove to be an effective means of driving change.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has just put Massachusetts utility companies on high-burner to “modernize” and implement “smart grid” technologies claiming there will be (fictional) “choices” and “savings” for utility customers.
There will be rate and tax windfalls from the tech grid and Governor Patrick can’t wait to line his pockets.
Every utility company customer should send a message like the one below to any elected official who comes out in favor of “smart grid” technology.
Make whatever changes or additions you need to make to really own it, so it’s coming from you, and not me. Also, people from other states and countries can modify this for your utility and elected officials. This type of letter or notice can be sent virtually to any public official, anywhere.
Now is the time for speaking truth. Be bold.
1) I understand that Josh del Sol is partially subsidizing bulk DVDs of Take Back Your Power which are sent to elected officials. Should you choose to send a DVD for this purpose, feel free to optionally include something like the following paragraph:
The enclosed DVD of the investigative documentary Take Back Your Power, contains all the proof you need and will help you to see the bigger picture related to this issue. Consider this as evidence of the future harm that you will cause to the people of your state, for which you will be held accountable – unless you protect your constituents by halting the rollout of “smart” metering and grid technology in your state.
2) If you send the letter via registered mail, it may carry a higher level of effectiveness, and you also retain the option of referencing it (with it being proven delivered), should you choose to proceed with further action.
LETTER TEMPLATE: (copy, paste, edit & mail)
Deval L. Patrick
Massachusetts State House
Office of the Governor
Boston, MA 02133
NOTICE OF INDIVIDUAL LIABILITY
To Governor Deval L. Patrick,
Please understand that you have firm and widespread opposition to your careless, harmful and corrupt “smart grid” proposals.
We do not want to be spied on through our utility use. We do not want a radiation-saturated environment from over-deployment of wireless devices. We do not want to pay different rates for the same electricity and have our “energy consumption behavior” manipulated by unfair and unjustified taxes, penalties, “flexible rates” and “tiered rates”.
It is clear that, to utility customers, there are and will be no “savings” of any kind, there will be no “choices” that are not available with analog metering and the “smart grid” only serves to enrich utility companies and public agencies at huge and unfair expense to the public.
There are absolutely no benefits to consumers in this deceptive program of “modernization” and you have apparently been diverted in your loyalties to power industry and government elites.
Unless you reverse your positions and support health, safety and privacy with traditional and safe analog meters you will be thought of, and represented as, an enemy of the public by all those who suffer the consequences of your proposed radiation-surveillance rate-gouging Orwellian nightmare.
You are hereby notified that you will now be held personally liable, as an individual, for any and all damages relating to “smart” meter or grid technology in your state, and this liability extends to any successors of your office. Any reply, other than taking the appropriate action and preserving the rights of your constituents by preventing “smart” metering/grid technology deployment in your state, will be deemed as your full acceptance of this liability, both commercially and, where applicable, criminally.
