“Without health life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering, an image of death.” Buddha
This will be a different Christmas for Steve Weller and his family; they won’t be in Melbourne with their family and friends, but will instead be in Queensland, learning to adapt to the hot, humid weather, learning that there is no going back. Steve’s two children will visit Seaworld and other theme parks, something Steve and his wife have promised their young primary school aged son and daughter in an attempt to distract them from the shock and grief of leaving behind all their friends, teachers, school and home – forever. There is only one reason this family has to leave the state and relocate to Queensland: WIRELESS SMART METERS. Since smart meters were rolled out in his street, Steve has developed sleep problems, headaches and other symptoms, which have made his life a misery. Shielding has helped to some degree, but he has effectively become a prisoner in his own home. Our Victorian Government has been informed about Steve’s predicament and has done NOTHING to help him. He and his family have been driven out of this state by an uncaring Government.
Steve and his family’s leaving will mean nothing to Dr Napthine and his ministers – for every family that leaves, another will come to Victoria. But this is not a numbers’ game. Steve and his family are NOT replaceable, they are unique individuals, Victorians that belong here, contributors to our community. His and his family’s forced departure will diminish us all as a society and will condemn this Victorian Government for having ‘mandated’ the dismantling of liberty, compassion and respect for human rights, values which should be an accepted part of Australian society.
After becoming sick from exposure to wireless smart meters, Steve, who has a degree in microbiology and biochemistry, researched wireless smart meters and the biological effects of wireless technologies for more than two years. He has written a number of blogs (see below) and his contributions have been incredibly helpful to our cause and to many individuals who have been similarly affected. His gentle and patient persistence, together with his ability to understand and clearly articulate scientific concepts, have meant that he has been able to be heard by some in the scientific and regulatory departments, such as ARPANSA and ACMA. Thank-you Steve, for all you have done and for being a great Victorian and a good friend to many involved with the Victorian branch of Stop Smart Meters Australia Inc. We all dream of a day when justice will be restored and the entire wireless smart grid will be switched off in this state. Then, maybe, you and your family will return and we will all be allowed to live free from adverse health effects from smart meters, free from worries and concerns about the long term effects on our children and grandchildren and then, perhaps, we’ll all be happy and proud to see Victoria flourish once again.
Steve has recently completed a report titled ‘Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) – A Personal Case study’. Click here to read full report: A personal EHS Case Study – final
