Update June 10th, 2022: Verizon has threatened to launch a civil suit against Karanveer, the father who stood up to their bullying. As a result, he has suspended his protest and the small cell has tragically been installed in front of his home. His family is now looking at possible relocation or shielding from the small cell.
Is the moral of this story that direct action is ineffective against large utility and telecom corporations? Not at all. The takeaway here is that civil disobedience is always most effective when the community is involved and supportive and it is not just one individual taking action. (Collective) Direct Action still gets the goods! Everyone has fundamental right to be safe in their homes whatever the law says. -SSM!
