Stop 5G International Resources

Whilst we are rightly rebelling against face masks, vaccines and lockdowns, the satellites (100:000 now approved!) are being shot up into the sky, locking us into an inescapable, Planetary Surveillance Grid. 5G is the spider in the web.... Take that out and the rest will fall. Wait and it will be too late.... 

Saturday 26th of September is Global 5G Protest Day and we will need millions on the streets then. Please rally your troops wherever you are! Kindly see: https://stop5ginternational.org/

REFLECTIONS

We, the people, should decide what we want, not Big Tech. Without measured and mindful guidance from the collective will of us all, Big Tech will continue to corral us down a fast track into extinction. But with us at the helm we will create a future we can live with.

We seek a technology future that enhances and serves all life... 

  • Where we know more about ourselves and our loved ones than Google does.
  • Where connection to the internet is a choice we make, not something that occurs unbeknownst to us.
  • Where it’s common knowledge that the safest way to connect to the internet is through hard-wired technology, not wirelessly through the air.  
  • Where digital orphans are reunited with their parents, and tech addiction is a relic of the past. 
  • Where using the same device for many long years is the new badge of honor, and obsession with buying the latest gadget is passé.
  • Where, ever-conscious of our e-footprint, we are mindful to stream video only with energy efficient hard-wired connections.
  • Where the right to live safely in one’s home and neighborhood takes precedence over industry profits.
  • Where it’s common practice when arriving home to put cellphones away to give loved ones our undivided attention. Or better yet, ditch the cellphones altogether (but recycle them responsibly).
  • Where the new normal is wired technology in all buildings.  
  • Where mainstream media objectively and fairly addresses the thousands of studies on health and environmental impacts from wireless radiation rather than giving preference to those (few studies) that show little or no adverse impacts.
  • Where our human right to free speech is restored so we can speak openly about the harms of wireless technology (or other “sensitive subjects”) without being marginalized or censored.
  • Where safe technology advocates are respected for being ahead of the times and for steering humanity toward a safe tech future.
  • Where Telecom companies take pride in offering safe technology, and schools and businesses get "safeG certified."
  • Where the impacts, on all beings, of every frequency and modulation - alone or in concert with others - are studied, considered, and mitigated where needed, before a given technology is approved.
  • Where satellite deployment is halted and we can once again partake of our common heritage – the unobstructed skies.
  • Where decisions based on short-term profits are replaced by long term thinking that prioritizes planetary well-being.
In short, a world where the pursuit of ‘faster’, ‘bigger’ and ‘more’ is replaced with contentment from 'just enough'. 
 
With deepest appreciation for all the time, energy, resources, care and love people around the world are putting into re-envisioning a more wholesome and life-affirming future for us all.

SATELLITES  
Please see the following message courtesy of Arthur Firstenberg about the current state of affairs re satellites.
 
THE CURRENT SITUATION IN SPACE
SpaceX
The launch of 57 more satellites by SpaceX in the early morning of Friday, August 7, at 1:12 AM EDT, has brought the number of SpaceX’s “Starlink” satellites orbiting in the Earth’s ionosphere up to 595.
 
Although this was the first launch since June 13, SpaceX has not been idle during this time. It has built additional ground stations and has received permission from the Federal Communications Commission to operate (so far) 40 ground stations, scattered throughout the United States. It has signed up customers to begin “beta testing” of the satellites that are already in orbit. Beta testing will occur initially, says SpaceX, with customers who live between 44 and 52 degrees latitude in the northern U.S. and southern Canada. SpaceX plans to begin the testing sometime in September.
 
As I reported in a previous newsletter, SpaceX’s launch of April 22, which brought the number of its satellites up to 420, was accompanied by reports of heart palpitations from far and wide, including from yours truly. I again felt strong heart palpitations that began early in the morning on August 7. Actually I began to experience a feeling of oppression Thursday night about two hours before the launch time. Please contact me if you have been having heart palpitations since Friday’s launch.

OneWeb
OneWeb, which is based in the UK, and which had declared bankruptcy in March, has been bailed out to the tune of one billion dollars by the UK government and Indian telecommunications company Bharti Global. And on May 26, 2020, OneWeb applied to the FCC for permission to compete on an equal footing with SpaceX by launching 47,844 satellites into the ionosphere.
 
Although OneWeb’s offices are in the UK, none of its Directors live there. Its CEO, Adrián Steckel, is Mexican, and the rest of its Directors live in the U.S., Germany, Israel and Mexico. Its major stockholders are Qualcomm (Singapore), SoftBank Group (Japan), and 1110 Ventures (U.S.).

Amazon
On July 29, 2020, the FCC granted Amazon’s application to launch 3,236 satellites into the ionosphere. Like the satellites of SpaceX and OneWeb, Amazon’s satellites will operate at millimeter wave frequencies and use phased array technology to cover the Earth with focused beams of radiation enabling customers to access the Internet from anywhere on Earth, on land or ocean.
The satellites of SpaceX, OneWeb and Amazon alone, if they are all launched, will total, together, about 92,000 satellites. If you add in Iridium and Globalstar, which are already operating small constellations, and the plans of Facebook, Link, Canadian companies Kepler and Telesat, the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, Russia’s Roscosmos, and other competitors, there could soon be 100,000 satellites orbiting in the ionosphere.

“But will you wake for pity’s sake”*
 
The out-of-control satellite industry is one of the stupidest things humankind has ever created. It treats the life-giving envelope of our atmosphere as if we don’t depend on it. It poses an immediate threat to life on Earth, in so many ways.
 
The 100,000 planned 5G satellites, each with a designed lifespan of 5 to 10 years, must be constantly de-orbited and replaced. This means that at least 10,000 satellites will have to be launched every year, forever into the future. If an average of 50 satellites can be launched on each rocket, that’s 200 rocket launches per year, just to maintain the satellites used for cell phones and Internet. And it means the de-orbiting of 10,000 worn out satellites per year, burning them up in the atmosphere and turning them into toxic dust and smoke. And that’s not counting the ever-increasing numbers of weather, research, tracking, monitoring, surveillance, military, and other kinds of satellites and missiles being launched in what will soon be a parade of rockets burning prodigious quantities of fossil fuels, punching holes in our atmosphere on a daily basis, and treating the source of all life as Earth’s largest garbage pit.

Martin Ross of the Aerospace Corporation and other researchers have been modeling the effects of daily rocket launches on ozone and global temperatures. Rocket exhaust, depending on the type of fuel used, may contain chlorine and/or oxides of nitrogen, hydrogen, and/or aluminum, all of which destroy ozone. SpaceX’s kerosene-fueled rockets deposit enormous amounts of black soot into the stratosphere, where it accumulates, absorbing solar radiation and warming the stratosphere. The warming of the stratosphere accelerates the chemical reactions that destroy ozone.
 
Most rockets are launched from the northern hemisphere. And the winter and spring of 2020 saw the largest and longest-lasting Arctic ozone hole in history. Ozone-watchers did not know what caused it, but they were not communicating with the scientists who are studying rocket exhaust. Our world is full of specialists, deaf and blind to other specialties, collectively asleep and marching toward oblivion.
 
Atmospheric physicists do not study astronomy. Astronomers do not study electricity. Electricians do not study biology. Medical doctors do not study acupuncture. Doctors of oriental medicine do not study atmospheric physics. But the universe is not fragmented, it is a whole, and our culture has forgotten what that is, to its peril and to the peril of everything alive.
 
The ionosphere is a source of high voltage that controls the electric circuitry of the biosphere and everything in it, including the fine-tuned circuitry of every human, every animal, every tree, and every fish. If we do not immediately stop the destruction of our fragile blanket of electrified air, upon which we depend for growth, healing, and life itself, climate change and ozone destruction may not matter. Beta testing begins in September.

Amazon will invest over $10 billion in its satellite internet network after receiving FCC authorization  July 30th, 2020 | Michael Sheetz | CNBC News
"The Federal Communications Commission declared on Thursday that Amazon may build its ambitious satellite internet system, which would compete with SpaceX’s Starlink network.
Amazon’s project, known as Kuiper, would see the company launch 3,236 satellites into low Earth orbit. Amazon says it will deploy the satellites in five phases, with broadband service beginning once it has 578 satellites in orbit.
'We conclude that grant of Kuiper’s application would advance the public interest by authorizing a system designed to increase the availability of high-speed broadband service to consumers, government, and businesses,” the FCC secretary Marlene Dortch said in its authorization order.’"

 
SOCIAL JUSTICE, DIGITAL DIVIDE, AND E-FOOTPRINT

"Tech companies are doing all they can to develop products that condition our behaviour in ways that make us more profitable for them.... 

"In this profit-driven sector it will always make sense to stress all imaginable and sometimes imaginary benefits. The critical question is whether claims of smart-facilitated carbon reduction really stack up.

“[this] delivery of mere ‘information' is not a substitute for empathic human engagement with the living world.   Matthew Barton

Smart tech's carbon footprint  April 30th, 2020 | Matthew Barton | The Ecologist 
"Smart technology has been promoted as 'green' because it can help monitor and reduce carbon emissions and achieve energy efficiencies. But is this the full picture? 
The embedded energy costs of communications technologies and voracious digital consumption are actually exacerbating global heating rather than helping prevent it, the recent Shift Project report, Lean ICT, Toward Digital Sobriety, suggests. 
The report recommends a shift from 'intemperance to sobriety in our relationship with digital technologies'  - basically the idea that individuals and companies could self-limit their purchase and usage of equipment. But this clearly runs counter to the financial imperatives of the big tech companies and their marketing strategies.”

BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE – What Could Be Wrong with That? Aug. 2020 | WhatIs5G.info
Blog that hopefully clears up the somewhat misleading notion we are being fed that 5G is needed to “bridge the digital divide”. Blog explains that “not all technology is created equal and underscores the need for "digital literacy" as a public right/necessity to protect us from becoming victims of an inequitable system. 
5G’s Waveform Is a Battery Vampire  As carriers roll out 5G, industry group 3GPP is considering other ways to modulate radio signals  July 24th, 2020 | Michael Koziol | IEEE Spectrum 
"In 2017, members of the mobile telephony industry group 3GPP were bickering over whether to speed the development of 5G standards. One proposal, originally put forward by Vodafone and ultimately agreed to by the rest of the group, promised to deliver 5G networks sooner by developing more aspects of 5G technology simultaneously.
Adopting that proposal may have also meant pushing some decisions down the road. One such decision concerned how 5G networks should encode wireless signals. 3GPP’s Release 15, which laid the foundation for 5G, ultimately selected orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), a holdover from 4G, as the encoding option…."

Should Social, Environmental, And Racial Justice Groups Sound The Alarm About The Digital Divide, Internet Access And 5G?  Aug. 2020 | Patricia Burke | Natural Blaze
Part 1: In part 1 of this 3-part series, we looked an efforts by the U.S. to pressure other nations to raise their RF exposure limits to accommodate 5G; the fact that the FCC has already been auctioning off frequencies prior to the international community and ITU coming to consensus on standards; and the FCC’s bullying of other U.S. regulatory agencies.
Part 2: In part 2, we looked at international exploitation via conflict and rare earth minerals, manufacturing, and e-waste, the economic divide, the racial divide, the safety divide, the override of individual and community rights, and active discrimination
Part 3: The Science Divide, the Technocracy Divide, the True Planetary Emergency

Ericsson: 5G could ‘dramatically increase’ network energy consumption  July 24th, 2020 | Davine Jansson | Euractiv.com 
"Ericsson, a major telecom company, is warning that the 5G grid as it is currently designed will result with energy usage increasing dramatically. Independent experts have advised an even greater increase, one our environment cannot handle.
'Energy consumption is set to increase dramatically if 5G is deployed in the same way as 3G and 4G were,' Ericsson warns in a report published in March.
'Some communications service providers have even estimated a doubling of their energy consumption to meet increasing traffic demands while improving their network and rolling out 5G,' writes Erik Ekudden, Senior VP, CTO and Head of Group Function Technology at Ericsson, in a foreword to the report.
'This is not sustainable from a cost or environmental perspective,' he warns."

E-waste has reached massive proportions worldwide  July 6th, 2020 | Daniel T Cross | Sustainability Times
“One of the lessons the current coronavirus pandemic has taught us is that we depend on electronic devices more than ever, not least during prolonged periods of self-isolation. Smartphones, laptops, television sets, e-readers, refrigerators, air-conditioners — they’ve all been supremely useful.
The trouble is what happens to them once they are replaced by newer models. The answer: millions of electronic devices end up in the trash heap each year, adding to the already acute problem of electronic waste. Last year alone a staggering 53.6 million metric tons of e-waste was generated globally, which was 21% more than just five years ago, according to a report by the United Nations."

It’s mind boggling to imagine how much data, energy and radiation the following will consume…not to mention the loss of precious time living in the natural world. 

New Oculus features will help Facebook deepen VR's social capabilities  July 22nd, 2020 | Hirsch Chitkara | Business Insider
Facebook seeks to boost the time users spend on its platform as the company can collect more user data and serve more advertisements. But it’s not a given that time on social media will continue to increase.
“...a key concern for Facebook is whether users will reach a saturation point, making it difficult to boost user time spent on traditional social media platforms. This is where VR comes in: As CEO Mark Zuckerberg remarked when Facebook acquired Oculus for $2 billion in 2014, 'Oculus has the chance to create the most social platform ever.' The basic premise is that, as VR [virtual reality] technology advances, users will spend hours participating in virtual societies within virtual worlds, unencumbered by the feeling that they're online in the traditional sense."

Letter Setting Guidelines for Electromagnetic Exposures and Research Needs  April 8th, 2020 | Frank Barnes (Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado) and Ben Greenebaum (Department of Physics, University of Wisconsin‐Parkside)
"Current limits for exposures to nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) are set, based on relatively short‐term exposures. Long‐term exposures to weak EMF are not addressed in the current guidelines. Nevertheless, a large and growing amount of evidence indicates that long‐term exposure to weak fields can affect biological systems and might have effects on human health. If they do, the public health issues could be important because of the very large fraction of the population worldwide that is exposed. We also discuss research that needs to be done to clarify questions about the effects of weak fields. In addition to the current short‐term exposure guidelines, we propose an approach to how weak field exposure guidelines for long‐term exposures might be set, in which the responsibility for limiting exposure is divided between the manufacturer, system operator, and individual being exposed. Bioelectromagnetics." © 2020 Bioelectromagnetics Society

Electromagnetic Field Medical Conference  Jan. 28th-31st, 2021   
"This conference builds upon the success and momentum built from the EMFC 2019 event, the first of its kind conference in the USA that featured global leading experts in the EMF field. The planet is increasingly being polluted by the multitude of human-made EMF sources, terrestrially and by satellite, causing rising levels of EMF in the atmosphere and creating chronic “electrosmog”conditions that exponentially increase health risk. A new generation of wireless technologies, 5th Generation Wireless and the Internet of Things, is being installed with no prior safety testing. Many scientists and medical doctors are warning of a growing public health crisis. The time is now for medical practitioners to become more educated on how electromagnetic fields (EMF) affect human health, and to learn how to recognize, evaluate, diagnose and treat their patients who are reporting adverse health problems known to be related to EMF exposure."  (Subscribe to their newsletter to receive further updates on this conference.) 

Scientists and medical doctors raise concerns about 5G deployment in Australia and New Zealand  July 29th, 2020 | Stop Smart Meters Australia 
"A letter published in Radiation Protection in Australasia, the journal of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society, asserts that Australia and New Zealand are rushing ahead with 5G without addressing safety concerns.
Ten Australian and New Zealand scientists and medical doctors have authored the letter, entitled Serious Safety Concerns about 5G Wireless Deployment in Australia and New Zealand.
The writers point out that 5G carrier waves are higher frequency wavelengths that have been hitherto used in limited applications such as radar and non-lethal weapons; 5G involves extremely complex modulation patterns that form novel exposures; 5G beam formation characteristics can produce hotspots of high unknown intensities, and that millions of additional transmitters will greatly increase human exposure."
 
New paper: Adverse health effects of 5G mobile networking technology under real-life conditions  Aug. 7th, 2020 | EMFacts Consultancy - Published in Toxicology Letters, Volume 323, May 1, 2020, pages 35-40
Ronald N. Kostoff, Paul Heroux, Michael Aschner, Aristides Tsatsakis,
Abstract:
"This article identifies adverse effects of non-ionizing non-visible radiation (hereafter called wireless radiation) reported in the premier biomedical literature. It emphasizes that most of the laboratory experiments conducted to date are not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of the real-life operating environment in which wireless radiation systems operate. Many experiments do not include pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal. The vast majority do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli (such as chemical and biological) acting in concert with the wireless radiation. This article also presents evidence that the nascent 5G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, as commonly believed, but will have adverse systemic effects as well."

5G Health risks from radiofrequency radiation, including 5G, should be assessed by experts with no conflicts of interest  July  15th, 2020 | Lennart Hardell, Michael Carlberg.| Oncology Letters. 20:15 | Published online
Abstract: 
"The fifth generation, 5G, of radiofrequency (RF) radiation is about to be implemented globally without investigating the risks to human health and the environment. This has created debate among concerned individuals in numerous countries. In an appeal to the European Union (EU) in September 2017, currently endorsed by >390 scientists and medical doctors, a moratorium on 5G deployment was requested until proper scientific evaluation of potential negative consequences has been conducted. This request has not been acknowledged by the EU. The evaluation of RF radiation health risks from 5G technology is ignored in a report by a government expert group in Switzerland and a recent publication from The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. Conflicts of interest and ties to the industry seem to have contributed to the biased reports. The lack of proper unbiased risk evaluation of the 5G technology places populations at risk. Furthermore, there seems to be a cartel of individuals monopolizing evaluation committees, thus reinforcing the no-risk paradigm. We believe that this activity should qualify as scientific misconduct.”

PRESS RELEASE: 700-plus Medical and Scientific Professionals Urge the FCC to Hold Off Approving Spectrum for 5G
Experts Say Agency is Ignoring Risks to Human Health, Wildlife and the Environment in its Rush to Fast-Track 5G 
"(New York) In a letter submitted to the Federal Communications (FCC) last night, more than 700 medical professionals and scientific experts from across the country have called for the agency to stop its incipient approval of commercial use of high spectrum bands for 5G communication until independent scientists have been consulted about the wide array of potential effects such action may have on humans, wildlife and the environment.
'Humans interfere with nature at our peril, and the agency's apparent disregard for the potential impacts of dramatically expanding the use of these high-frequency bands on our natural world is deeply disturbing,' the letter states. 'We urge the Commission, in the strongest possible terms, to proactively seek the guidance of scientific experts who can enlighten agency officials regarding the possible and probable consequences of its proposed actions.'”

Planetary electromagnetic pollution: it is time to assess its impact Dec. 2018 | Priyanka Bandara and David O Carpenter | Lancet Planetary Health
"As the Planetary Health Alliance moves forward after a productive second annual meeting, a discussion on the rapid global proliferation of artificial electromagnetic fields would now be apt. The most notable is the blanket of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, largely microwave radiation generated for wireless communication and surveillance technologies, as mounting scientific evidence suggests that prolonged exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation has serious biological and health effects. However, public exposure regulations in most countries continue to be based on the guidelines of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection1 and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers,2 which were established in the 1990s on the belief that only acute thermal effects are hazardous."

INSURANCE COMPANIES AND LIABILITY
 
"If the general public were aware of common EMF insurance exclusions due to industry health concerns, would consumers continue using wireless devices to the same constant degree?"

Insurance Companies Keep Quiet About EMF Exclusion Clause  May 11th, 2020 | Carolina I. Lavayen | 5GTN
"Most global insurers have chosen to exclude radio frequency (RF) coverage from their policies. More so since 2013, when AM Best, the leading insurance rating agency published a report stating that it has now been determined that about 250,000 cell phone antenna workers per year who are in close contact with cell phone antennas are at high risk of thermal (ionizing) effects from RF radiation including eye damage, infertility and cognitive impairments. 
Note AM Best’s analysis did not consider non-thermal (non-ionizing) effects from cellular radiation, which have also shown to be hazardous to human health on deeper cellular levels.
EMF Exclusions Are Standard Within The Insurance Industry
Insurance companies typically exclude coverage for illnesses caused by long-term EMF (non-ionizing) exposure. Mainstream media has not made this information readily available to the masses.
As published on Business Insurance in 2007, the safety of electromagnetic radiation has been debated for many years within the insurance industry, as far back as 1984 as wireless communication grew in popularity. The scientific community has always been split on the opinion of whether wireless radiation poses a health risk or not. As time passed and more claims and lawsuits were filed, insurance companies increasingly dropped coverage for EMF damages.
Lloyd’s of London, one of the largest insurers in the world, in 2015 created a market standard that electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure illness would be excluded from coverage, as mentioned in a previous article: Insurance Companies Can Refuse Claims Related to Electromagnetic Radiation Illnesses. This means insurance policies would exclude coverage for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionizing radiation exposure including that released from mobile phones.”

If 5G is not deemed safe in the USA, and nowhere in the rest of the world, by the insurance industry … why is it by the Danish government?  Aug. 7th, 2020 | Santini R, Johansson O | Newsvoice 
"While the politicians and the rest of the population all over the world are busy going about with their lives, the telecommunications industry is working at high speed. Billions of dollars and top salaries are at stake.The purpose of the operator TDC A/S in Denmark is to ‘rollout' Ericsson’s new medically and biologically untested and not evidence-based (1) 5G radiation products right over the unsuspecting Danes before they can protest. The small town Elsinore (Danish: Helsingør; Swedish: Helsingör) has been designated by TDC and the government as a 'test area'. The telecommunications industry ‘informs' Elsinore’s citizens that the product will be ‘exciting', and the mayor of Elsinore states that the children want it (2).
Unsuspecting citizens in the municipality of Elsinore are thus chosen as guinea pigs."

FCC UNDER FIRE 

In a consolidated case, the Environmental Health Trust and Children’s Health Defense are challenging the FCC’s "glossing over the substantial evidence" submitted to the Agency when it ruled in Dec. 2019 that the radiofrequency guidelines were adequate. 

Environmental Health Trust is Taking on the Federal Communications Commission
Summary of Environmental Health Trust, et al. v. FCC 
The case is Environmental Health Trust, et al. v. FCC  case number 20-1025, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In a joint opening brief, the Environmental Health Trust argues the agency glossed over substantial evidence when it decided December 2019  that its radiofrequency-exposure limits and regulations — established in 1996 — still provide adequate protection and could remain unchanged.

Groups Warn of Downsides to Remote Learning   Aug. 11th, 2020 | John Eggerton | Multichannel News
"Over 100 organizations and individuals, led by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, have signed on to a letter warning about the downside of remote learning in the age of COVID-19 and beyond. As some school districts pull back on reopening in person due to spikes in the virus, privacy and other groups are warning parents and schools to look past simplistic solutions peddled to increase EdTech profits, and find ways to limit students’ time on digital devices. Their concern is the push for remote learning will translate to EdTech companies capturing more children's data, crowd teachers out of education budgets, and subject kids to 'relentless marketing efforts,' all to 'capture a larger portion of the $10 trillion global education market' and sell families on what they said is the false premise that Ed Tech is effective and budget-friendly. Signatories include 70 individuals and 36 advocacy groups including Center for Digital Democracy, the United Church of Christ, and the Massachusetts Teachers Association."

Radiofrequency radiation injures trees around mobile phone base stations  Aug. 24th, 2016 |Cornelia Waldmann-Selsam, Alfonso Balmori-de la Puente, Helmut Breunig | National Center for Biotechnology Information
Important study conducted in Germany and published in a Science of the Total Environment magazine. A detailed study on long-term monitoring (2006-2015) was conducted in the cities of Bamberg and Hallstadt (Germany). 
"During the monitoring, photographic observations and recordings of unusual or unexplained damage to trees were made, together with the measurement of electromagnetic radiation.
The statistical analysis of the many data acquired in all those years has shown that the electromagnetic radiation of radio base stations of cell phones are harmful to trees. These findings are consistent with the fact that tree damage from cell phone towers usually begins on one side, extending to the whole tree over time."

Scientists and medical doctors raise concerns about 5G deployment in Australia and New Zealand  July 29th, 2020 | Stop Smart Meters Australia 
"A letter published in Radiation Protection in Australasia, the journal of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society, asserts that Australia and New Zealand are rushing ahead with 5G without addressing safety concerns.
Ten Australian and New Zealand scientists and medical doctors have authored the letter, entitled Serious Safety Concerns about 5G Wireless Deployment in Australia and New Zealand.
The writers point out that 5G carrier waves are higher frequency wavelengths that have been hitherto used in limited applications such as radar and non-lethal weapons; 5G involves extremely complex modulation patterns that form novel exposures; 5G beam formation characteristics can produce hotspots of high unknown intensities, and that millions of additional transmitters will greatly increase human exposure."

Telephone antennas: Italian children invoke the precautionary principle  
Antennes téléphonique:  des enfants italiens invoquent le principe de precaution   July 11th, 2020 | Maud Coudrais and Ugo Mattel | Reporterre 
Excerpt translated by Google Translate: 
“On June 11, a summary appeal was filed in the Turin Civil Court to demand the immediate shutdown of any installation, a rare occurrence in Italy, unlike France. Another specificity of this case lies in the fact that the lawsuit is brought by minor children, through their legal representatives, as well as by a cooperative society ('Rodotà Committee') acting as 'lawyer of future generations'."
This foundation remains very original even if, in 1993, a Filipino lawyer had paved the way by invoking before the Supreme Court of the Philippines the judgment of overexploitation of forests on behalf of future generations, thus setting a real precedent in the now famous case of July 30, 1993, Oposa v. Factoran. The Supreme Court of the Philippines had, for the first time, legally enshrined the legal responsibility of each generation to ensure for the next a healthy and balanced environment, in harmony with nature.”

"Google's parent company is flying balloons with 'floating cell phone towers' across the ocean to bring internet to Kenya's Rift Valley  July 19th, 2020 | Mary Meisensahl | Business Insider
"Project Loon started as one of Alphabet's moonshot projects, and now its providing internet service in Kenya. 
The company makes solar powered balloons that fly high up in the stratosphere and send internet access down to earth. These mobile, floating stations are more flexible than typical cell stations, as they're constantly moving. They also have much wider coverage areas; as much as a hundred times that of a cell tower.
Right now, Loon stations are mostly used after disasters take out existing infrastructure, or in places where cell towers and connections are otherwise difficult, but Loon has much bigger plans. CEO Alastair Westgarth said 'Loon is well positioned to play this role and serve as the operating system for the global connectivity ecosystem of the future.' He hopes to create a global third layer of connectivity, on top of cell towers on earth and satellites in space."

5G Confusion – Clarification One Step at a Time Aug. 11th, 2020 | Mary Redmayne
“Today, I will address just one recent statement from our Ministry of Health: “exposures to 5G signals are similar to, or lower than, those from existing cellsites, and [are] small fractions of the public limit in the standard”.
The statement is misleading, and the topic is complex. Let me explain. The last part of the MoH statement claims that measured 5G exposures “[are] small fractions of the public limit in the standard [2772.1-1999].”  This assumes the standard provides safety. Actually, it only seeks “minimal levels of radio-frequency absorption” and to minimize the chance of burns and shocks over short periods.“

Facial recognition use by South Wales Police ruled unlawful  Aug. 11th, 2020 | Jenny Rees | BBC News
"The use of automatic facial recognition (AFR) technology by South Wales Police is unlawful, the Court of Appeal has ruled. It follows a legal challenge brought by civil rights group Liberty and Ed Bridges, 37, from Cardiff.
But the court also found its use was proportionate interference with human rights as the benefits outweighed the impact on Mr Bridges. 
South Wales Police said it would not be appealing the findings.
Mr Bridges had said being identified by AFR caused him distress.
The court upheld three of the five points raised in the appeal.
It said there was no clear guidance on where AFR Locate could be used and who could be put on a watchlist, a data protection impact assessment was deficient and the force did not take reasonable steps to find out if the software had a racial or gender bias."

These dedicated Berkeley residents take turn tower-sitting to help protect their living spaces from the construction of wireless antennas. 

U.S. CALIFORNIA: Construction of new 5G cell sites blocked by Berkeley protesters — for now   Aug. 3rd, 2020 | Kate Darby Rauch | Berkeleyside,
“It may have something to do with a small but dedicated group of local residents who are opposed to wireless cell technology, primarily for what they consider health reasons. These Berkeley residents closely monitor the sites where work is proposed and as soon as they see workers approaching, they send out texts and emails calling on fellow activists to show up. Then they picket the site (fully masked, these days), chant, hold vigils and try and make it difficult for workers to do their jobs. They even sit on the poles to block access.

Easton CT is Saying NO THANKS to 5G, and We Can Too!  July 14th, 2020 | Children’s Health Defense 
“Did you know that Telecom is rolling out 4/5G cell towers to create ‘Smart' City Grids, all across the country, right now?
Dallas approved 966 ‘small' cell (4/5G) towers already. Residents in New York, Oregon, San Francisco, Georgia, and many more are waking up to a cell tower as close as 12 feet outside their bedroom windows. Costa Mesa, CA just approved ‘small' cell towers to be built 30 feet from home daycares. Within days residents are reporting headaches, nose bleeds, fatigue, behavioral issues, and tinnitus. These symptoms are just the beginning. Studies from different countries show up to a 200% increase in cancer within 1500 feet from a cell tower...."
