Welcome to Stop Smart Meters! (UK)
Est. January 2012, Stop Smart Meters! (UK) is an independent, not-for-profit voice calling for an immediate halt and reversal of the UK's Smart Meter programme - which in itself is part of a global Smart Grid agenda (see map below).
Our campaign aims to raise awareness about Smart Meters so that people can become informed about Smart Meters and take necessary and appropriate action to resist them. This is a very long way indeed from what Big Energy and Big Utility are trying to do.
There are many serious problems presented by web-enabling our electricity, gas and water supplies and turning our homes into wireless, network-attached nodes on the Internet. From documented (and suppressed) health risks, unwarranted privacy violations and safety issues to the loss of sovereignty & control of our property in our own homes and much higher bills, the Smart Grid will cause far more problems than it purports to solve. In reality, Smart Meters are a money-making solution to a very different challenge - namely, how profit-seeking corporations can continue to monetise further aspects of our lives.We encourage you to stand on your indefeasible human rights and to say a loud "NO!" to Smart Meters. Smart Meters are not mandatory - you are lawfully entitled to refuse one on whatever grounds you like. And if you would like to help other people do the same, please download and hand-out our leaflets to your neighbours and friends - this will make a huge difference in raising awareness about Smart Meters within your own community.
In February 2012, Stop Smart Meters! (UK) was invited to join the International EMF Alliance http://www.iemfa.org
