Stop Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antennas (4G/5G) in California neighborhoods!

PETITION URGENT MESSAGE: 5G is already being rolled out in communities across California and the country and will be located in neighborhoods which will adversely affect and create illegal access barriers to the homes and communities of our most vulnerable citizens: the elderly, the immuno-compromised, our children and Electromagnetic Sensitive (EMS) residents.

We haven’t gotten a straight answer from our elected officials who allowed the FCC to include language in the 1996 Telecommunications Report that cities could not use environmental effects as reasons to to deny placement of cell towers.

In September, 2018, the FCC created the “Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order” which streamlined rules which benefit industry while removing local control. The Order is a blatant effort by the FCC to strengthen the hand of carriers in negotiations with local governments over small cell deployment and to limit the ability of local governments to negotiate in the public interest around small cells.

For years, firefighters were becoming ill after Cell Towers were installed on or near Fire Stations. But in 2015, Firefighters in California became exempt from the 1996 Telecom Act which restricts placement of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities on their fire stations via CA AB.57: Wireless telecommunication Facilities. A study concluded that they were suffering from the adverse effects of Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) exposures. The SPECT scans completed showed brain abnormalities of every firefighter examined.

Dr. Lennart Hardell and other members of the 2011 WHO study committee have continued their research into 2018 and are now calling to change the IARC classification for RF-EMR exposures from any source from Group 2B (possible human carcinogen), to Group 1 (definite human carcinogen).

An extremely thorough $25 million study started in 1999 by the National Toxicology Program (NTP), reported in 2016 and in 2018 that wireless radiation indeed causes cancer and DNA damage at power levels below that which would cause tissue heating. Director of Special Programs in the NIEHS who led the study until he retired said: The results of the study “should put to rest the old argument that RF radiation cannot cause DNA damage”. The scientists in the press conference said, “the public must be warned”.

Many other studies have concluded harm to humans, plants and animals including: 2018 International Society of Doctors for Environment (ISDE), Bio-Initiative 2012, 2014 Study from the Department of Interior and the 2018 Ramazzini Institute Study, which corroborate other studies' findings and showed RF radiation exposure causes very rare tumors.

There are also several petitions from the international community to include 230 scientists from 41 countries appealing for protection from non-Ionizing RF exposure, by asking for a worldwide moratorium on a extreme density 4G and 5G rollout. This was delivered to the United Nations, WHO, UN Environmental Programm, and the UN Members.

These 4G and 5G so-called small cells (each with up to a 28 cubic feet of ancillary equipment) will be emitting RF-EMR exposures 24/7 in frequencies ranging from 600 MHz to 90,000 MHz. There are estimates that they will be installed every 2 -10 houses by 2020. We need to restrict these extreme density 4G and 5G small cells to only commercial and industrial areas.

In conclusion, let’s hold our public officials, our local governments and the State of California accountable and demand they keep Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antennas out of our residential neighborhoods. They need to stand up for our right to protect ourselves, our families, our privacy and our home values!
