Hold Mercedes-Benz accountable for its conduct

THE MARKETING OF BLOOD As you may have heard Albania was struck by a 6.3 earthquake early morning of November 26, leaving behind 51 casualties, hundreds injured and thousands of people homeless. Amid being in continuous panic and fear for life from the aftershocks, something very disturbing caught my attention in social media and this is the reason I am taking this opportunity to get it out in the public and eventually seek justice. In the morning of the following day, exactly November 27 while there were still unrecovered corpses from the rubles of destroyed buildings, the marketing team of the official Instagram page of Mercedes Benz posted 10 photo/video collages in their stories section, promoting their new model's campaign which they had shot in Albania. At first, I thought they were promoting that specific campaign to raise awareness for that catastrophic event by publishing a donation page or a donated amount to help with the earthquake relief but that wasn't it. Although the first 9 posted stories might have seemed unethical and inconsiderate, what disturbed me was the 10th post which had a location tag of Albania. That's what made realize that they were trying to unethically gain insights and attention by benefiting from Instagram's algorithms since thousands of people were posting and tagging Albania in their pages. This behavior is considered a corporate crime, for which if we had the needed support we would sue Daimler AG & Mercedes Benz for general damages and punitive damage. In desperation, I have since contacted several German law firms to initiate a case against them but surprisingly every one of them had their schedules full and couldn't take on new cases. Mercedes Benz had the scrutiny to take advantage of this tragic event and profit even that not directly. Their hands have blood on them, so they should immediately release a press statement to apologize and offer considerable financial compensation otherwise      We will not stand down until justice has been served. #shameonmercedes #prayforalbania Screen Recorder- Video Evidence

Ban 5g and its infrastructure from Edinburgh until proven safe

BAN 5G AND ITS INFRASTRUCTURE FROM EDINBURGH UNTIL PROVEN SAFE The rollout of 5g (the fifth generation of radio frequency mobile phone technology) is a threat to our health, our children and the environment. EE and O2 are already listed as having rolled out 5g in Edinburgh, as of May 2019, with telecom company 3 due to do so before the end of 2019. There has been no hint of danger, no consultation or debate.   However, scientists worldwide have massive concerns about the harmful effects of vastly increased exposure to 5g frequencies on humans and the environment when used in the following ways:    24/7 according to industry plans  Pulsed, which makes them affect living beings more than non-pulsed frequencies of the same average intensity,  used in phased array, which focuses and increases the power of the signal. When extremely short electromagnetic pulses enter the body, the moving charges themselves become little antennae that re-radiate the electromagnetic field and send it deeper into the body.  The re-radiated waves are called Brillouin precursors. They become significant when either the power or phase of the waves changes rapidly enough, which will happen with 5G  added to already existing radiation as 3g, 4g and 5g need to run in tandem  radiating residential areas at close quarters. 5g frequencies are 30-300GHz (millimetre waves) and 3-30GHz (microwaves). These are very high frequencies with a short range, and so millions of “small transmitting cells” are planned to be deployed throughout residential areas so that residents can “benefit” from the coverage.  Radio frequency sources which are close at hand are far more dangerous to you than distant sources, as the radiation dissipates with distance, obeying the inverse-square law. Industry plans also include driverless vehicles guided by 5g. The preparation for this will entail felling trees (in their millions in the UK) lest they obscure the signals used in phased array. (This video explains “phased array”   Humans are expected to suffer from increased cancers, cognitive problems, neuropsychiatric effects including depression and fatigue, lowered fertility, raised miscarriage rates, oxidative stress and free radical damage, present in all chronic diseases such as heart disease) and more. Small creatures including pollinating insects will be affected by the radiation.  Please also see sections on Health Risks and Children below.  Please see made by concerned scientists from 40 countries, for a good introduction to the whole subject, including plans for earth and space. The following is a telecom industry video detailing their plans for 5g. WE ARE CALLING ON YOU TO HALT THE ROLLOUT OF 5G FREQUENCIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE, INCLUDING PLANS FOR SMALL CELL TRANSMITTERS THROUGHOUT RESIDENTIAL AREAS, UNTIL IT HAS BEEN PROVEN SAFE  We invoke the precautionary principle, used previously in EU and UN decision making, which refers to the social responsibility of elected officials to protect the public from harm in situations where there is a possibility of harm resulting from taking a certain course of action. We believe that the deployment of 5g infrastructure and frequencies constitutes an experiment on humanity, for which consent has NOT been given by the subjects, and as such is defined as a crime under international law. (Nuremberg Code 1947) More details of our concerns: The 5g deployment plan would increase current levels of radio frequency radiation by tens to hundreds of times greater than those we experience today,  with telecommunications industries planning to deploy 5g small cell transmitters every 2 to 10 houses in residential areas, the radiation will be inescapable, 24/7, 365 days a year.   5g frequencies have never been used before in this way, and the telecommunications industry does not have one study indicating that they are safe for people and the environment. This is a YouTube video from 7.2.2019 showing US senator Blumenthal asking representatives of the Telecom industry at a Senate Hearing if there are any studies demonstrating the safety of 5g frequencies, and concluding “so we’re flying blind here”.    THE PEOPLE OF EDINBURGH DO NOT CONSENT TO BE USED AS LABORATORY RATS IN THIS 5G EXPERIMENT Please Read on for Evidence of Health Risks, (including insurance claims) and safe alternatives to radio frequency.  The World Health Organisation (WHO) already listed wireless radiation as a possible carcinogen (a cancer-causing agent) of the order 2b, along with lead and DDT in 2011.  Professor Anthony Miller, an advisor to the WHO, acknowledges that new scientific information has emerged since then, and says “if the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) re-evaluated Radio frequency radiation, it would be placed in class one – a human carcinogen, and governments could not possibly ignore that”  Lloyds of London has refused to insure any telecom company rolling out 5g for claims concerning health damage.  They have written a clause in their policy which their UK agent clarified to be Exclusion 32 “The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage” Swiss RE (which insures the insurers) has said “To allow for functional network coverage, more antennas will be needed, including acceptance of higher levels of electromagnetic radiation.  Existing concerns regarding potential negative health effects from electromagnetic fields are only likely to increase.  An uptake in liability claims could be a potential long-term consequence”  WILL THE COUNCIL OR GOVERNMENT BE LIABLE FOR CLAIMS REGARDING DAMAGE TO HEALTH?  WHAT ARE THE HEALTH RISKS?  In 2018, the U.S gold standard National Toxicology testing Program (NTP) concluded its 16 year, $30 million, extensively peer reviewed study: it showed clear evidence of cancer, among other pathologies. Dr. Ronald Melnick, senior NIH toxicologist who designed the study, said “The NTP studies were conducted to test the widely-held assumption that cell phone radio frequency radiation could not cause cancers or other adverse health effect (other than by tissue heating) because this type of radiation (non-ionising) did not have sufficient energy to break chemical bonds.  The NTP findings that cell phone radiation caused cancers in the heart and brain, DNA damage in brain cells, heart muscle disease and reduced birth weights clearly demonstrate that the assumption that non-ionizing radiation cannot cause cancer or other health effects is wrong.” Please search for "clear evidence of cancer melnick cell phone in On 17.5.2018, Professor Martin L. Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical sciences, Washington State University, compiled “8 repeatedly documented findings which show that Electromagnetic Field (EMF) safety guidelines do not predict biological effects”   He says “There is a massive literature, providing a high level of scientific certainty, for each of eight pathophysiological effects caused by non-thermal microwave EMF exposures” These are: Cancer – including initiation of cancer, promotion and progression of cancer, tissue invasion and metastases (39 reviews)  Neurological effects, neuropsychiatric effects, cognitive effects – including sleep disturbance, fatigue, headache,depression,  lack of concentration/attention, cognitive dysfunction, dizziness/vertigo, adverse memory changes, restlessness/tension/anxiety/stress/agitation and irritability (29 reviews) Lowered fertility – in males including lowered sperm count, motility and other lowered quality markers, lowered female fertility including oocyte loss, lowered oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone, increased spontaneous abortion levels, and lowered libido (25 reviews) Oxidative stress/free radical damage - (an important part of the progression of almost all chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease etc and the direct cause of DNA damage) (25 reviews) Cell death (important in infertility and neurodegenerative disease as above (15 reviews) Endocrine effects (15 reviews) Increased intracellular calcium levels, thought to be the cause in all other effects (16 reviews)  WHAT ABOUT CURRENT SAFETY GUIDELINES? FLAWED.  The assumption that average EMF intensities and average specific absorption rates can be used to predict biological effects and therefore safety, has been shown to be false. Many studies have shown that there are what have been called intensity windows where a short intensity-range of exposures to a particular EMF produces maximum effects, but lower or higher intensities produce much lower effects.  Averaging can only be predictive of biological effects when one has linear dose-response curves.  However, the “window-effect” studies clearly show that in testing EMF, dose-response curves are neither linear not monotone, they do not always increase with increasing exposure not do they decrease with decreasing exposure.  Exposure averages over 6 minutes or 30 minutes cannot predict biological effect and therefore safety. The assumption that Health Effects can be predicted simply based on physics is also false.  Biological heterogeneity (not of different people but of different responses of different cell types) is important.  Research confirms that different cell types repeatedly responds differently to the same EMF exposures. This is not considered in the guidelines.  Children, with their increased absorption rates of radiation, are not considered in the guidelines.  OUT OF DATE. Our current guidelines in Scotland are the ones adopted by Public Health England, which are informed by the International Commission for non-ionising radiation protection (ICNIRP) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) which set safe exposure levels in 1996!  At that time the widely-held assumption was that radio frequency radiation used for mobile phones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Surveillance etc does not have sufficient energy to break chemical bonds, therefore damaging DNA and impacting our health.  This has now repeatedly been proven wrong experimentally (as above, and in other studies).  In answering queries, Public Health England still uses a report written in 2012 by the Advisory Group on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (AGNIR) which predates many relevant studies, including the 16-year NTP study which has shown “clear evidence of cancer” as seen above. In a House of Commons debate on health effects of 5g and wireless radiation in June 2019, Tonia Antoniazzi MP called for the AGNIR report to be taken down from its website, as it is “scientifically inaccurate and out of date” and yet “still used to justify [PHE’s] advice to MPs and the public”   COMPROMISED IN INTEGRITY?  CONFLICTS OF INTEREST:  The telecommunications industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry which wields a lot of power to lobby MPs, and influence governments. shows that the telecom industry uses the same PR strategies, some of the same industry consultants and scientists to promote disinformation in defence of their products, as the tobacco industry did, to support theirs.  The industry has also made headway in getting laws passed so that they can put up transmitting cells where they want without local permission and without burdensome fees.    In the USA a 2015 Harvard expose of the USA Federal Communications Commission (FCC) tracked a revolving door between the FCC and the telecom industry and concluded that “consumer safety, health and privacy, along with consumer wallets, have all been overlooked, sacrificed, or raided due to unchecked industry influence”  There is a huge amount of evidence that ICNIRP and the WHO EMF project are not independent of telecom industry influence: Microwave News, an independent publication,  (30th July 2007) reports that the ICNIRP’s founder and former director of WHO’s EMF project, Mark Repacholi,  admitted that up to half of WHO’s EMF project funding came from wireless and electric utility industry groups. Thirteen members of the ICNIRP board itself are from the telecom industry. Mark Repacholi himself used to work for the phone industry before and after joining the WHO as an expert witness “defending their right to site masts in controversial locations”. Finally, the current Director of the WHO EMF Project, Emilie van Deventer, is an electrical engineer who carried out industry-funded research.  Would it not make more sense to have a biophysicist or medical doctor as the director of a WHO project the primary aim of which is to ensure that human health is not harmed by EMF?  THE COUNCIL FOR EUROPE DOES NOT AGREE WITH OR ACCEPT THE ICNIRP/PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND GUIDELINES  The council for Europe is a separate entity from the EU.  It is a body which agrees minimum legal standards across Europe and beyond.  It is up to individual  States to decide whether they incorporate these standards.  Here are two paragraphs from their resolution 1815 “The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment” “5. As regards standards or threshold values for emissions of electromagnetic fields of all types and frequencies, the Assembly strongly recommends that the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle is applied, covering both the so-called thermal effects and the athermic or biological effects of electromagnetic emissions or radiation. Moreover, the precautionary principle should be applied when scientific evaluation does not allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty. Given the context of the growing exposure of the population, in particular that of vulnerable groups such as young people and children, there could be extremely high human and economic costs if early warnings are neglected.   6.  The Assembly regrets that, despite calls for the respect of the precautionary principle and despite all the recommendations, declarations and a number of statutory and legislative advances, there is still a lack of reaction to known or emerging environmental and health risks and virtually systematic delays in adopting and implementing effective preventive measures.  Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco”  Children In 2007, Panorama broadcast “Wi-Fi Warning Signal” about the precautionary principle being ignored when it comes to Wi-Fi, particularly in schools. Children are far more biologically affected by radio frequencies than adults, absorbing more radiation per cm cubed bodyweight than an adult, and current guidelines were developed for adult bodies.  Tonia Antoniazzi, MP for Gower (Jan 2109 Commons debate): “The department for Education in England and the Department of Education in Northern Ireland have said that it is the responsibility of schools to carry out risk assessments before technologies are introduced and used.  However, schools cannot safeguard pupils or staff through a risk assessment if they have been given inaccurate information.  Can schools be accurately informed about the risks so that they can fulfill their responsibilities to safeguard children?” With up-to-date information, schools and parents could have been informed that wireless signals are a human carcinogen, that there is evidence of damage to fertility, that there are adverse effects on brain development.  Schools could have been advised to use wired technologies to prevent possible harm to children’s health and development.  The EU has sent a cautionary message about WiFi in relation to school children. France alone has removed WiFi from primary schools.  International agreements on Children are being violated.                                     The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child requires States to “undertake to ensure the child such protection and care as is necessary for his or her well-being (art 3), “ensure ..the survival and development of the child” (art 6) and “take appropriate measures to combat disease..taking into consideration the dangers and risks of environmental pollution (art 24). All these points of the international agreement are being violated by the rollout of 5g.   Wires are a safe way to have faster internet/communicationTimothy Schoechle PhD, a senior Research Fellow at the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy (Colorado USA) has charted the rise of the Telecommunications industry, its switch from optic fibre technology to wireless, its heavyweight influence and its plans. Its motivation is to sell more phones, (which includes making products “addictive”) more chips and data about people so that they can be targeted and influenced as consumers and citizens by other corporations’ relevant advertising. There may be other motivations.  He sees the industry’s plans (e.g.: the "internet of things", SMART cities, driverless vehicles) as being mainly produced for securing investment for the industry and details some of the major blocks to their practical deployment. His view is that their plans constitute an economic bubble which will eventually burst.  He reminds us that there are healthy alternatives to wireless that would benefit our economy: Optical Fibre technology is safe, fast as one could wish, already in place in the telecommunications infrastructure, far more secure in terms of data privacy, faster and more reliable than wireless.  It provides equal capabilities in uploading as in downloading.  He makes the point that wireless is good for downloading but not so efficient at uploading, a good design for consumers only.  But optical fibres will make it much easier for small businesses to upload their own information and be run from home. Optical fibres could also be used in local electrical grid management and energy management in the home, using analog metering which wouldn’t collect data for sale.   Thank you for reading this petition. Are faster download speeds really worth more childhood Cancer, Alzheimers, Suicides, Infertility, Health costs? Please protect your citizens and yourselves!

Petition to President E.D. Mnangagwa, The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt

Justice From TEMBA PETER MLISWA who illegally seized my company.

Mr President of The New Zimbabwe  Your Excellency  "The VOICE of the people is the voice of God" I am praying for Zimbabwe and her amazing people to be FREE! On behalf of my wife, two boys and myself I humbly appeal to you Mr President, for justice through compensation from Hon T.P Mliswa. Hon Mliswa used Cde R.G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain/Greed to illegally seize my companies' Noshio Motors and Benbar! He claimed Mr Mugabe "Sanctioned" this illegal seizure in line with the "indiginization" law. On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seize my companies using a fake "Banda Trust" Mafia style dirty politics and his uncle Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is "Untouchable and above the law, with powerful connections". He is obstructing the judiciary from doing their work in a democratic professional manner.  Mr President you condemn corrupt and illegal activities. The country is wooing back FDI, trying  to get back into the Commonwealth and Re-Engagement has started yet my companies were illegally seized by Hon Mliswa. My ONLY "Crime" white British FDI working with the amazing people of Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee the country with nothing but a suitcase due to death threats on my life. In the process I illegally LOST my entire investment, over One Million Pounds!  I love the amazing people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, warm smile, passion and love for God, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their Nation. Hon T.P Mliswa was called in, for his political muscle and "powerful connections" to prevent a forensic audit at my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar. Hon Mliswa claims a "Banda Trust" was drafted by his lawyer at the time G.N.MLOTCHWA! However as of February 2010 no such "Banda Trust" ever existed! My lawyer Victor Zvogbo did a search at the Deeds Office to verify this. What Hon Mliswa did was ILLEGAL immoral Unconstitutional against the Law and SEVERE VIOLATION of my Rights He threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my two Belgian boys and KILL me!! My ONLY "crime" FDI. Anti Corruption came to see me to tell me Mliswa was trying to change the Share Certificate and CR14. Their names are in my affidavit. You have my file Mr President.  Didymus Mutasa lied to the previous President. He was Presidential affairs Minister at the time, ex-CIO Boss and 3rd most powerful man in Zimbabwe. He made sure his Nephew, Son and others were "Aquitted" bribing magistrates Never Katiyo and Morgan Nemadire as well as abusing his office. Johannes Tomanna, the Attorney general at the time (Mliswa's lawyer in 2000 during the Land Invasions) prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify. Please may I humbly ask you to summonds Florence Ziyambe Chris Mutangadura, Mr Dube, Mishrod Guvamende the LAW Society of Zimbabwe and Patrick Chinamasa who was Justice Minister at the time. I wrote to them all. They said they would APPEAL this "ACQUITTAL" Immediately. A PRECIDENT has to be made Mr President to show the World Zimbabwe is definitely open for business and this will NEVER happen again to any other FDI creating employment for the amazing people of Zimbabwe.  I humbly ask and pray my family and I receive justice through compensation. Hon T.P Mliswa was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party at the time he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.  Benbar was Zimbabwe's Number One Choice in manufacturing. Noshìo Motors was the leading supplier of motor vehicles and accessories to the entire Nation. Some workers had been there from time of it's inception in the 90's. New potential investors want to believe the same thing will not happen to them Mr President. Hon T.P Mliswa must be held accountable for his own ACTIONS and DECISIONS in this heinous crime. He was PPC "Chairman" yet he himself bribed Magistrates NEVER KATIYO and MORGAN NEMADIRE to get "ACQUITTED"? He threatened, harassed, intimidated, looted, extorted, maliciously damaged my personal property and furniture, criminally DEFAMED me, obstructed justice, coerced, manipulated the judiciary, abused his office, interfering with state witnesses, stole vast amounts of cash both in the safe from existing customers and new, he made false police reports, forged documents, changed the CR14 WITHOUT my knowledge and/or approval, obtained a new share certificate, he is in violation of the Companies Act, Banking Act, illegally opening a Premier Bank Account, Post and Telecommunications Act, sending threatening messages to my phone. This is about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe, Mr President. I had been working from the time I was 16 years old. I built up these companies created employment only to ILLEGALLY lose the entire lot to Hon T.P Mliswa's personal greed! It is my HOPE and PRAYER my family and I receive justice through compensation from Hon T.P Mliswa. #RESTOREDONTIGNORE #JUSTICEFORWESTWOOD #TEMBASVICTIM #NOSACREDCOWS #NOTOCORRUPTION TOGETHER we accomplish more.  We thank you Mr President   Yours Faithfully Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood
