    Thank you so much for sharing this!

  • Deborah Wiseman said,

    Lloyd, I was a major contributor to this document to the US Congress with Liz and others but needed my name off if it due to the Criminal Fraud Case vs. TX PUC. I am a plantiff in Texas that is already on the docket of the Texas State District Court in Austin, TX on March 22, 2014. We see that it will be into court agaist the TXPUC in June 2014.

  • Francie said,

    We had smart meters put in over 3 years ago – I had no idea they were bad. Is it possible (in your opinion) to have them removed, or is it too late?

  • Linda Roe said,

    Dear Lloyd

    I don’t have time to read a 257 page document? Can you just tell me how I can stop the power company installing one at my property.

    Many thanks

    Linda

    This People’s Initiative Congressional White Paper is long overdue as the rollout of wireless utility meter technology issue is the most serious one in its affects on citizen health and welfare in the USA. And even doctors do not know about it. I have been working on educating people on this issue and their right to refuse the installation of smart meters on their property for almost three years now and have a “library” of thousands of peer-eviewed scientific studies which document and support every one of the listed problems in the People’s Initiative Report. Good news that you have highlighted this issue on your website! Congratulations and thank you.

  • Rosemarie said,

    Lloyd,
    Very timely! I have been pounding away at the keyboard all morning regarding the the smart meter issue and am struggling with my power provider. I shared your post on facebook with a site for people fighting the smart meter roll out in there town. I will read this and hope to use this soon.

    Lloyd: Thanks for dedicating a complete page to this document. I have listed other human rights issues which need to be addressed by governments world wide. These “public utilities” are in violation of a number of international and regional statutes and laws which were specifically written to protect persons with physical or mental health disabilities. Governments that FAIL to provide legal accommodation to electro-sensitive individuals, are in violation of their own fiduciary significance.

    EMF Neglected as a Disability & Human Rights Specification

    Note that the United States and Canada were agreement signatories to this Declaration.

    Excerpted from: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

    [“Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.”]

    [Article 3.
    Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

    Article 5.
    No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment

    Article 7.

    Article 25.

    Excerpted from: Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 – Wikipedia

    [“The Supreme Court decided under Title II of the ADA that mental illness is a form of disability and therefore covered under the ADA, and that unjustified institutional isolation of a person with a disability is a form of discrimination because it “…perpetuates unwarranted assumptions that persons so isolated are incapable or unworthy of participating in community life.” The court added, “Confinement in an institution severely diminishes the everyday life activities of individuals, including family relations, social contacts, work options, economic independence, educational advancement, and cultural enrichment.”]
    [“Therefore, under Title II no person with a disability can be unjustly excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of services, programs or activities of any public entity.[40] “]

    Excerpted from: Policy and guidelines on disability and the duty to accommodate (Canada)

    Revised version approved by the Commission: November 23, 2000
    (Please note: minor revisions were made in December 2009 to address legislative amendments resulting from the Human Rights Code Amendment Act, 2006, which came into effect on June 30, 2008.)
    1. Introduction
    [“Under the Code,[1] everyone has the right to be free from discrimination because of disability or perceived disability in the social areas of employment, services, goods, facilities, housing, contracts and membership in trade and vocational associations. This right means that persons with disabilities[2] have the right to equal treatment, which includes the right to accessible workplaces, public transit, health services, restaurants, shops and housing.

    On average, 30 – 50% of human rights claims cite the ground of disability. Most are in the area of employment, with services constituting the second largest area. For this reason, this Policy focuses on the workplace, with specific guidance to support employers, unions and employees in the fulfillment of their duties and rights under the Code.[3] “]

    [“Section 15(1) ensures that governments may not, intentionally or through a failure of appropriate accommodation, stigmatize the underlying physical or mental impairment, or attribute functional limitations to the individual that the underlying physical or mental impairment does not entail, or fail to recognize the added burdens which persons with disabilities may encounter in achieving self-fulfillment in a world relentlessly oriented to the able-bodied. [emphasis added.”]

    Excerpted from: United Nations Convention against Torture

    Ban on torture and cruel and degrading treatment

    [“Article 2 of the convention prohibits torture, and requires parties to take effective measures to prevent it in any territory under its jurisdiction. This prohibition is absolute and non-derogable. “No exceptional circumstances whatsoever”[6] may be invoked to justify torture, including war, threat of war, internal political instability, public emergency, terrorist acts, violent crime, or any form of armed conflict.[7] Torture cannot be justified as a means to protect public safety or prevent emergencies.[7] Neither can it be justified by orders from superior officers or public officials.[8] The prohibition on torture applies to all territories under a party’s effective jurisdiction, and protects all people under its effective control, regardless of citizenship or how that control is exercised.[7] Since the convention’s entry into force, this absolute prohibition has become accepted as a principle of customary international law.[7]

    Because it is often difficult to distinguish between cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and torture, the Committee regards Article 16’s prohibition of such treatment as similarly absolute and non-derogable.[7] “]

  • Shelley Wright said,

    Thanks Lloyd! Wonderful to see this support. I’m electromagnetically sensitive and would love to see public policies which support us so we can actually live fully out in public! I miss shopping sprees, dining at restaurants and hanging out with family and friends in public places. Keep up the great work! Thank you for the valuable information.
