People Power Victoria - No Smart Meters Party Campaign Launch

MEDIA RELEASE

 

Friday 10 October 2014
For immediate release

People Power Victoria – No Smart Meters

Party Campaign Launch

 

People Power Victoria – No Smart Meters (PPV) campaign launch for the 2014 Victorian election will be held as follows:


Saturday 11th October

3:00 pm sharp

Oakleigh Grammar Community Conference Centre

77-81 Willesden Rd, Oakleigh (Hughesdale)

 

PPV will run in every Upper House seat and selected Lower House seats.

 

As a newly registered party, PPV has been formed in response to growing public unrest with how Victorians are being treated by essential service corporations and government departments, and in particular, disdain towards our right to cost-effective, safe, and privacy-protected services.

 

“The Party provides a focal point for voters who are frustrated by the lack of political action and feel strongly that much more needs to be done through our parliamentary system to protect the human and democratic rights of Victorians.  It is a party based on consumer rights and protection,” said Marc Florio, PPV spokesperson.

 

PPV is centred on opposing the mandated rollout of wireless smart meters for electricity, gas and water, and on the commitment to re-establish a healthy environment for Victorians.

 

“The community's experience with rising essential services’ costs and disregard of our rights and wellbeing is epitomised by the incompetent and aggressive rollout of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (smart meters) program.”

 

“Many Victorians have already been adversely affected by the compulsory rollout, be it financially or via deteriorating health as a direct result of exposure to radiation from smart meters. Many also see it as a gross invasion of their privacy,” he said.

 

Media are most welcome to attend the launch.
