Some have dubbed plans for a new network of extremely high millimeter wave 5G small-cell antennas as “smart meters on steroids.”
There is no doubt that the telecom’s industry’s plans for a massive 5G deployment (on top of the existing 4G towers and smart meter mesh networks) represent the single biggest threat to our safety, health, privacy and cyber-security since smart grid deployments began. It’s incumbent on every person aware of the facts to take action and voice opposition- on the record- to these reckless and invasive plans. For more details on what exactly “5G” entails, check out the new website Whatis5G.info.
Action to Stop 5G Required: Comment on FCC Website by Feb. 6th: The FCC (Frequently Causing Cancer or Federal Communications Commission?) is seeking Comment on STREAMLINING DEPLOYMENT OF SMALL CELL INFRASTRUCTURE BY IMPROVING WIRELESS FACILITIES SITING POLICIES — The intention is to make the siting process for 5G infrastructure easier and faster than it already is! Comments are due by Feb. 6th, 2017. See here for more details from the FCC website.
This federal proceeding is the latest attempt to pre-empt local government authority in regulating the placement of a massive network of small cell sites in the public right-of way. That means that a strong, super high frequency antenna could be installed by an unaccountable global corporation outside your bedroom window or inside the office where you work without any notice to you, and with no meaningful way to contest the placement. This has profound implications for community rights, environmental health, and democracy- even property values are threatened by this giant “taking” by Verizon and the rest of the gang of our public (and private) spaces. To make matters worse, 5G networks are already being used as justification for severing our critical landline telephone networks, subjecting an already EMF-saturated population to mandatory wireless usage for voice communication.
Fight Back Now– Start Here: Detailed instructions on how to submit an official comment to the FCC as well as brief sample testimony is available by downloading this pdf guide, created by the people at Whatis5G.info, an excellent critical and factual resource raising awareness about the predatory nature of the industry’s 5G plans where you live.
Speaking of predatory, check out the new article at SmartGridAwareness.org, “We’re Being Hunted by Smart Meters and the Internet of Things” about how extending the internet to “everything” makes us all into prey.
