To: Haringey Council

We do not consent to Smart Water Meters

We, the undersigned, petition Haringey Council to request that Utility Companies respect the STOP Notice that withdraws Implied Consent for the installation of Smart (Water) Meters or any Surveillance Device.

***Please sign the petition only if you are a resident in the London Borough of Haringey***.

Why is this important?

Haringey residents have six concerns about the Smart Meter installation programme:

1. Not being consulted prior to installation;

2. Not compulsory;

3. Penalise poor people who live in crowded homes;

4. Significant risk to the health of humans, animals, pollinators, trees and all life on earth;

"10. The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorised RF EMFs as a Possible CARCINOGEN (Group 2B), the same as lead, DDT, chloroform & methylmercury (31 May 2011)".

"11. Dr Andrew Goldsworthy’s research warned that electromagnetically-conditioned water flow may strip lead from pipes (after firstly removing limescale) leading to lead poisoning. N.B: Lead is a Group 2B carcinogen. (1998, 2007 and March 2012)".

5. Surveillance of electricity, gas and water usage; and

6. Security risk through hacking (“cybercrime”).

Our focus is on Smart Water Meters but not exclusively.

Full details about the Stop Smart Meters Haringey campaign can be found on our website below.

This petition will be delivered to Haringey Council.

The target is 2,200+

How it will be delivered

In person

London Borough of Haringey

Reasons for signing

  • nothing 'smart' is safe, accurate or healthy!!
  • No consultation. The meter in the street was put in and we were told afterwards that it had been. When told that we did not want one, installer replied you will have to use them in two years time - it's compulsory.
  • Great concern about privacy and risk of hacking
