SMART METER PROTEST DEMONSTRATION
Wednesday, June 6th, 2012, 4pm – 6pm
Corner Woodward and 9 Mile, Ferndale, MI
This will be an entirely legal demonstration conducted in
accordance with rules of the Ferndale Police Department.
TARGETS OF PROTEST:
(1) DTE for the forced installation of electric meters that violate property rights, privacy rights and health rights, and
(2) Michigan Public Service Commission for neglecting its duty to regulate, for permitting the above violations to take place, and for acting in collusion with the aggressor.
OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROTEST:
To attract the attention of passing motorists during afternoon rush hour. Too many citizens have no idea what DTE is doing to them or the dangers to which they are being exposed. We need to wake these people up in order to build support for a new law (HB 5411 or HB 5439) now pending in legislature.
WHAT WE WILL DO: We will assemble in the Ferndale Public Library parking lot where signs similar to above will be distributed (or make your own) and walk approximately one block to our protest location where we will stand/walk for about 2 hours displaying our messages. Four quarters will buy 2 hours time on parking meters.
RSVP PLEASE! We need to know how many will participate! Call Dave at (248) 604-7545
The number of people who have confirmed by noon on June 4th will determine if we invite press coverage. RAINDATE: If we are rained out we will go the following Monday, June 11th.
