What is 5G?

5G is next generation wireless network technology.

Cell phones need more space and better battery life.  The “Internet of Things” (IoT) will demand connectivity.  5G promises a “swarm intelligence” which will allow for things like self driving cars and robotic surgery.

Do we need 5G?

Do we need 5G?

This would put 5G transmitters on power and light poles throughout communities across the United States with the aim of creating enough saturation of very high frequency microwave radiation that fiber optic level connectivity is available wirelessly everywhere.

Children are especially vulnerable to 5G radiation. Read about the effects of 5D on children here

Skipping to the next generation of internet is not necessary.  Many experts feel we need to explore our options with 4G.

 

Safety Concerns

Scientists

Scientists have expressed concerns Scientists have expressed their serious concern over the deployment of 5G.  Read this letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations;

As of April 30, 2020, 253 EMF scientists from 44 nations have signed the Appeal.

 

Children’s Advocacy Groups

Children’s Health Defense Fund is committed to protecting children against 5G and has filed a landmark lawsuit against the FCC. 

City and County Governments

The County of Hawaii recently voted to ban deployment of 5G technology UNTIL SUCH TECHNOLOGIES HAVE BEEN PROVEN THROUGH INDEPENDENT RESEARCH AND TESTING TO BE SAFE TO HUMAN HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT.

Note: this measure is significant because no formal level of government (such as city governments) exist below that of the county in Hawaii.

View the resolution here.

“Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.”

Please see the thoughtful and convincing article which  was published in Scientific American in October 2019 by Dr. Joel Moskowitz, We Have No Reason to Believe 5G Is Safe.

5G is coming to the following cities – Charlotte, Raleigh you are on the list!

Durham – A Call to Action

“Small Cell” (5G) towers are being spotted in cities and towns all over NC.  Please sign the letter blow to your representatives and mayors telling them that just as the City of Easton CT put a stop to 5G deployment, we can too. The hands of our elected officials are not tied, as they have been led to believe.

 

Please click on this link about Easton CT.  Scroll down to “5G Free Campaign to State Representatives, State Senators, State Assembly and Mayors,”  Sign the form.  

If you live in Durham, please join the Facebook Group,

You will learn ways to participate as the group moves forward.

 

There is a push in Congress to fund 5G for Rural America

The  Federal Communications Commission (Commission or FCC) proposes to retarget universal service funding for mobile broadband and voice in the high cost program to support the deployment of 5G services by establishing the 5G Fund for rural America.

FCC recently accepted comments for its proposed rule

Read the proposed rule here.

A bill has been introduced in the Senate

STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act

Key points to this bill

  • S.1699 greatly shortens the amount of time local governments have to consider placement of 5G cell transmitters so short that most municipalities will not meet the deadline especially when there are multiple applications from providers which we expect there to be. Once the shortened time period has elapsed, the cell transmitter is Deemed Automatically Approved.
  • This bill will streamline the process meaning it will make it illegal to consider Environmental, Health or Safety when placing the cell transmitters.
  • If you get sick or injured by one of these transmitters, you cannot seek legal remedy instead you must go back to the industry dominated FCC which exposed you in the first place. To quote the bill:

“(iv) ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF RADIO FREQUENCY EMISSIONS.—No State or local government or instrumentality thereof may regulate the placement, construction, or modification of personal wireless service facilities on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions to the extent that the facilities comply with the Commission’s regulations concerning such emissions.

“(v) JUDICIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW.—..

“(II) ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW.—Any person adversely affected by an act or failure to act by a State or local government or any instrumentality thereof that is inconsistent with clause (iv) may petition the Commission for relief.
