PLEASE JOIN US FOR A PEACEFUL RALLY OUTSIDE THE FEDERAL            COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC)

WHEN: APRIL 20TH, 2017, FROM 9:00 – 10:15 AM.

WHERE: FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION, 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20554

On April 20th, the FCC is holding an Open Commission Meeting which will address (among other things) “regulatory impediments to wireless network infrastructure investment and deployment, and how the Commission may remove or reduce such impediments consistent with the law and the public interest.”

By way of exercising our First Amendment Rights, we have planned a PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION outside of the FCC immediately before this meeting.  

WE ARE SAYING 

NO to small cells beaming hazardous radiation into our homes 24/7
NO to the wireless industry preempting local zoning rights
And YES to fiber optics – all homes, schools, and businesses should be connected with SAFE, RELIABLE, SECURE FIBER OPTICS and not with HAZARDOUS 5G SMALL CELLS BEAMING HARMFUL RADIATION INTO OUR HOMES 24/7.

All, including children, are invited and encouraged to attend.  There will be some signs there, but you can certainly bring your own.   

The FCC does not permit banners or signs in the meeting, but DOES allow T shirts.  There will be a limited supply of unisex T shirts as well.

We will bring thick neon green jelly yarn that looks much like fiber which we will hold onto as we walk, symbolizing what we are seeking – namely, safe, secure, fast, healthy, and reliable fiber optics to connect us all…not 5G small cells that spew harmful and unsafe pulsed microwave radiation 24/7 !! 

Following the demonstration, we urge you to attend the public meeting at the FCC which begins at 10:30 am.

If more than 50 people are planning to show up at the event, we will need to request an “Assembly Plan Application for Assembly” from the MPDC.  So if you are planning to attend, please message us at rethinking 5g@whatis5g.info, through the Facebook Page, What is 5G and the Internet of Things, or directly on the Facebook Event by clicking “going”.  (You can change your mind, it’s just so we have a rough idea of how many people to expect.)

if you have any further questions please email us at rethinking5g@whatis5g.info. 

SPREAD THE WORD SO WE GET A LARGE TURN-OUT AND LOTS OF MEDIA COVERAGE !!!
