No More Fukushimas – No more deferring to the NRC…we the people

The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission

The Philyra Foundation, based on the Central Coast of California, after much input from citizens fighting the NRC for over 30 years, has developed a petition and letter writing campaign for all citizens and public officials to revoke the corporate charters that allow companies like Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) to operate. Without a charter, they have no power to sue or anything else.

Only since the late 19th century has corporate control taken such power from citizens and municipalities; the real power to even charter the corporation can be revoked by the state legislature, the attorney general, who enforces laws, or the secretary of state who regulates corporations.

Print and sign the petition below or write a similar one and distribute it widely amongst your friends and neighbors.

Copy and send it directly to the following public officials, as well as others.

Petition to Revoke Corporate Charter of PG&E and shut down Diablo Canyon and eliminate so-called SmartMeters


TO: Kamala D. Harris, Attorney General of the State of California, and Debra Bowen, Secretary of State of the State of California, and all California State Legislators:

We, the People of the State of California, as law-abiding citizens, taxpayers, ratepayers, and voters, respectfully request that you, and each of you, swiftly and without any hesitation, delay or excuse, revoke the Charter of Pacific Gas and Electric Company, and any and all of their parent and subsidiary corporations, herein after referred to as PG&E, and dissolve said corporations as per the powers vested in you in accordance with California Corporations Code 1801 (a) (2), related provisions, and the rights and rights explicitly outlined in California State Constitution Article (1) section (1), as critical functions of your duties, responsibilities and obligations as elected officials, lawmakers and law enforcers.

We, the People, note that no armed robber, or gang of same, would be allowed to roam free and violate laws while threatening and harming the health and safety of the people and their privacy and property in our beautiful state of California; therefore, we will no longer tolerate such actions by PG&E. We will hold you, and each of you, personally liable for any and all damages.

Despite local ordinances and repeated public comments to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), which is chaired by Michael R. Peevey, a revolving door regulatory bully and corporate-funded and corporate-captured bureaucrat, PG&E has willfully and repeatedly poisoned, injured, harmed, killed, trespassed, harassed, and violated the privacy of the people threatening our health, safety, property, and livelihood, in violation of the California Constitution Article 1, Section 1, which you are sworn to uphold.

A summary of wrongdoing of Pacific Gas and Electric Company includes, but is not limited to, the following:

(1) Wanton disregard of the seismic hazards in the vicinity of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Reactors, particularly in light of the massive meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Plants in Japan where radiation levels are now acknowledged to be LETHAL. The CPUC’s directive for PG&E to study and “look at” the numerous earthquake faults, at a cost to us of $17 million is essentially extortion of the ratepayers and fails to address the imminent harm posed by fuel rods. Nuclear reactors are an elaborate expensive methodology to create boiling water and steam to turn a turbine and pose an unacceptable risk.

(2) Their willful and repeated violation of privacy, and exposure to the public of highly injurious Electromagnetic Frequency Emitters, by devices known erroneously as “SmartMeters,” against the will of the public and without their consent and in violation of Ordinances duly enacted by elected officials, including, but, not limited to Santa Cruz County Ordinance Number 5084, Lake County Ordinances and similar Ordinances in the Cities of Capitola, California and Seaside, California;

(3) Ongoing poisoning with hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen, in the Mojave Desert town of Hinckley, California;

(4) The September 2010 San Bruno Fire, which killed eight people, is now considered by PG&E and their lawyers to be the fault of the residents and local governments of San Bruno, as per their recent court filings in State Superior Court.

Paying to poison people, or paying a pittance for human life after the fact, is a crime. Only such chartered corporations would be allowed to engage in such heinous wrongdoing with complete impunity. Therefore, you MUST revoke their Corporate Charter.
