Seaford Smart Meter Community Meeting – Great Success!

A Public Meeting was held on Thursday 9th August at the Seaford Community Centre to discuss the health, safety and privacy issues relating to the smart meter roll-out.

The meeting proved to be a great success with around 100 people attending.

This follows growing opposition to and concerns about the program such as:

  • Why are these meters being pushed upon Victorians when other countries have stopped their compulsory roll-outs for health reasons?
  • Why are so many people falling ill after the installation when they are supposed to be having no impact on health?
  • Who is able to see most intimate data of your daily life?
  • Who is paying for the millions of dollars this roll out is costing on top of the calculated expenses?
  • Who is insuring major electrical installations on your house that have not been done by a qualified electrician?

The meeting heard from Stop Smart Meter Australia representative Sonia Rutherford who detailed the adverse effects the roll-out of these meters is having and will continue to have on the community.

A medical doctor also spoke addressing the effects on health in the community from the stream of harmful electromagnetic radiation.
 A motion was passed unanimously which in part called for a halt to the roll-out of Smart Meters and requesting support from Frankston and Peninsula Councils.

    Dear Readers,
    Congratulations to Councillor Glen Aitken for his speech at the Seaford Meeting which I have just read. It is a very impressive speech which embraces so many of the ongoing Crimes of the Smart Meter Fiasco. Yes, I believe we can get rid of these Devices. Please lock your Electric Meter Boxes with a Stout Industrial Padlock as I and many others have done and get up your Anti-Trespass Signs. In order of importance first lock the Electric Meter Box, then put up your signs and then send Registered Letters to your Electricity Power Company and the Victorian Minister for Power…………..Mr Michael O ‘ Brien stating that you refuse to accept a Smart Meter at any time for Health Concern Reasons and also as these Smart Meters can and have caused house fires and on many occasions damage to ones private electrical goods as is being often proven.

    Got a message from United Energy today saying they were coming to Gould Street, Frankston soon. Will be keeping our front gate LOCKED !

    • Pam says:

      Ken – We never know where they are ( installers). They need not even bother coming to my Door. Been here twice now and I have told them to please leave. Box is Locked – signs are up and I will NEVER GIVE IN TO HAVING A SMART METER INSTALLED AT MY, YES MY PROPERTY. They know our reasons WHY!!! we don’t want one. Democracy has GONE TO THE DOGS IN THIS COUNTRY. I never ever thought I would have to fight to save my Analogue Meter…………….This Website is available for all to look at and you can’t tell me That the Gvt and and Minister O’Brien haven’t checked it out. STOP SMART METERS AUSTRALIA keeps us informed on current information etc etc. and I check it constantly…………….Pam

      Hi Ken,
      Please make sure you padloclock your Electric Meter Box with a good stout Industrial Padlock as I have done. These Smart Meter Installer men in some cases have used ladders to scale fences and install the deadly Smart Meters in Victoria.
      Don’t forget to put up your Anti Trespass Signs as well………….one on the Meter Box and the other on the front fence or gate, but first of all LOCK THAT ELECTRIC METER BOX PRONTO.

      • Sharron says:

        I guess that means they will be back in Mornington as well quite soon. Will be standing my ground for sure! Thanks Cr Aitken, Sonia & everyone else for your vital support. We should not be having to deal with this at all, knowing what has already been happening in other parts of the world with this crazy smart grid idea. Such a waste of taxpayers money and time…stupid reviews and reports that totally miss the point… getting ignored and being fed lies by the deceptive government departments. Don’t want THEM in OUR LIVES AT ALL!!!

    I agree with Anne-Marie and John. We are doing our Homework WHY ISN’T THE VICTORIAN GOVT AND THE MINISTERS that were Elected doing THEIRS????? Congratulations to the Seaford Community, Sonia Rutherford from STOP SMART METERS AUSTRALIA and Cr Glenn Aitken. Yes it is an enduring nightmare for us all, but we are strong and will keep fighting for our Health and Safety and Privacy. 🙂

  7. Anne-Marie says:

    Yay, another step in the right direction.
    Let’s keep this ball rolling 🙂

  8. John says:

    Isn’t it time to start filming/recording these meetings so that others on the big wide web (Y/tube)can find out n learn of this tyranny being imposed upon us all. This ball needs to get rolling faster than it is to put a stop once & for all to this enduring nightmare.
