Postcard Avalanche to Stop SB 649

Postcard Avalanche to Stop SB 649

Update:  SB 649 passed out of the House and was sent back to the Senate for a final vote on the amended version.  Since SB 649 also passed out of the Senate, it will now go to Governor Brown for signing. Letters, emails and calls should pour into Governor Jerry Brown’s Office within the next few days.

We are having a Post Card Campaign at the Ecology Center Booth at the Berkeley Farmer’s Market this Saturday. \Don’t have time to send a postcard?  We can send one for you, please email us back – Saraharminoff@aol.com. There’s a coordinated social media campaign, asking folks to take pics of their postcards and post using #STOP SB 649 to further amplify the avalanche.

Sample Post Cards to Governor Jerry Brown:

1) Stop SB 649!  SB 649 is a project from ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, an organization for corporate advantage over what is good for the public.

2)The CA state Dept of Finance does not approve of SB 649, nor do 300 local cities in California as it overturns local governance in favor of corporate control.

3) SB 649 impacts climate change and energy consumption – – Wireless technology consumes more energy than wired — fiber optics, cable, etc. See http://whatis5g.info/energy-consumption/

4) SB 649 ruins aesthetics in California.   Teamsters are opposed and might pull the film industry out of state. Please retweet!  “We view this bill as a full assault on local democracy!” Barry Broad, Teamsters Public Affairs Council #NoOnSB649https://twitter.com/CaCities/status/908742091668307968

5) SB 649 protects industry not health. Harmful effects of RF-EMF fields are already proven. A large number of peer-reviewed scientific reports show harm to human health including increased cancer and deaths around cell towers — subsequently when cell towers are removed, studies show that the death rate returns to normal levels. The US National Toxicology Program (NTP) shows an increase in incidents of brain and heart cancer in animals exposed to EMF.

6) Firefighters got an exemption from cell towers on their building, after facing neurological symptoms and other health problems — what about our most vulnerable populations such as children? http://fearlessparent.org/cell-tower-hypocrisy-rescuing-firefighters-not-kids/

7) More than 180 scientists and doctors from 35 countries, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry.

8) SB 649 creates unsafe working conditions for utility workers.  SB 649 antennas will be placed on utility poles, and utility workers will be exposed all day up close.

 Further explanation and background for the Complaint:

 SB649 is ILLEGAL. It violates the Constitutional Rights of every resident of California, essentially legalizes Criminal Assault and violates the Disability rights of those who already have become sick from wireless radiation. It is also illegal and discriminatory because of the exemption to fire stations/fighters. We should demand that our rights be protected.

It is the Role of the Governor and especially that of the State Attorney General to protect the rights, health and safety of the residents of their state and uphold the law. We need to demand that they comply with their legal responsibilities and the law.

This complaint explains why SB649 is illegal and how it would harm people and why it should not become law. Please fill out this form to demand that the CA Governor VETO SB649 and the Attorney General protect our rights and uphold the law, and if it becomes law challenge SB649.

 

AT&T AirGig and 5g

AT&T AirGig and 5g

AT&T’s project AirGig, where 5G millimeter wave Internet signals are carried along power lines, is in the test phases right now.  If AT&T launches this, it means that if you work or live anywhere near a power line integrated with AT&T 5G, you will be exposed to the 5G mm wave radiation constantly.  So it‘s not just the 5G small cells placed every few houses apart that would be radiating the mm wave radiation, but the entire power line!!!

 

Instead of laying down fiber optic cable to the 5G small cell tower, AT&T is touting this as a lower cost, faster way to deliver wireless Internet to any area with power lines – for example rural and “underserved” areas.   5G mmWave surface wave launchers and inductive power devices would be installed on power line poles and power themselves without a direct electrical connection (via the magnetic field surrounding the power lines). These devices create a multi-gigabit signal that travels along or near the wire – not through it. http://about.att.com/story/trial_project_airgig.html   Then to deliver WIRELESS internet service to the home, a receiver would be attached to the home to receive the wireless signals from the power lines or a small cell tower would send the WIRELESS signals to the home.  http://www.telecompetitor.com/att-offers-airgig-update-reiterates-upcoming-trials-for-fiber-fronthaulbackhaul-alternative/

 

Delivering Internet via power lines was tried in the past, but there were many problems with reliability.  However, AT&T says the same reliability problems won’t exist now.  http://www.govtech.com/internet/Project-AirGig-Aims-to-Deliver-Internet-Over-Power-Lines.html

Project AirGig can also be a benefit to utility companies. It could enable and expand a variety of smart-grid applications. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/att-labs-project-airgig-nears-first-field-trials-for-ultra-fast-wireless-broadband-over-power-lines-300331117.html
 
Please note that SB 649 allows for such transmission of wireless internet signals along power lines.  Please write to Gov. Brown about your opposition to SB 649 – see instructions here.  Other state’s versions of 5G/small cell bills may include this as well.
PEOPLE VS. TELECOM – CA SB 649 OPPOSITION RALLY (SEPT. 15TH, 2017)

PEOPLE VS. TELECOM – CA SB 649 OPPOSITION RALLY (SEPT. 15TH, 2017)

California – Sept. 15th, 2017:

California Senate Bill (SB 649) which would facilitate the proliferation of cell towers throughout the state, passed out of both the Senate and the House, and is headed for the Governor’s office to be signed into law.  If the Governor Jerry Brown signs the bill, local communities will lose their right to block the installation of cell towers and will end up with a small cell in front of every 1-6 homes.  

Although over 300 cities or municipalities in California have voiced strong opposition to SB 649, the majority of the legislators voted in favor of the bill, in some cases, completely going against the voiced opposition of their constituents.  

Please send a FAX to Governor Jerry Brown’s office – even if you do not live in California – and plead with him to uphold democracy and represent the will of the people of California and not the Telecom Industry.  Fax: (916) 558-3160
