ACTION ALERT - ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT NOW
ACTIONS TO TAKE TODAY
PLEASE JOIN THE 5G DAY OF ACTION :
Americans for Responsible Technology is planning a nationwide Day of Action on May 15th, calling on wireless companies (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile) and their sub-contractors (Crown Castle, ExteNet Systems and other antenna installers) to suspend the deployment of small cell wireless antennas in residential neighborhoods until such time as chronic, low level exposure to 5G radio-frequency (RF) microwave radiation can be proven completely safe.
Please join or organize an event in your community.
Resources, guidance, and support can be found at www.5gcrisis.com.
OUR FUTURE BELONGS TO US, NOT TO TELECOM!!
AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL:
Please urge your federal reps to support House Resolution 530 (HR 530) Accelerating Wireless Broadband Development by Empowering Local Communities Act of 2019 and to oppose House Resolution 7236 (HR 7236) Radiofrequency Radiation Site Safety Information Act,
HR 530 states simply that the FCC’s Order, Accelerating Wireless and Wireline Broadband, “shall have no force or effect.”
HR 7236 is a bill that would provide for the establishment of a radio-frequency radiation site safety information database. Though this sounds like a reasonable idea, the bill would severely limit liability of telecom corporations for injury caused by exposure to radiation emitted by telecom equipment if the corporation complies with FCC-determined RFR emissions.
SHORT ON TIME? PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE THESE TWO PETITIONS:
Urge Congress on EMF Safety, FCC Must Change Exposure Guidelines for Microwave Radiation Exposure by ElectromagneticHealth.org

TAKE ACTIONS, ACTIONS TAKEN, AND RESOURCES FOR FURTHER ACTIONS
(Updated Feb, 2018)
Untapped malaise about 5G and its attendant infrastructure is gathering momentum around the country and worldwide. More and more communities are taking action to rein in the proliferation of 4G and 5G small cells set to add millions of new towers and antennas to our already radiation-saturated environment.
Turning a blind eye to public sentiment regarding health, environment, aesthetics, historic preservation etc. – and convinced that no one and nothing can stop them – the Telecom industry continues to foist 4G and 5G small cells on municipalities around the country. In response, communities are organizing to halt or slow this build-out, and to keep 4G and 5G small cells and antennas far from homes.
The Section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act removed the public’s right to oppose cell towers on the grounds of environmental impacts from radiation. Since then, this has been interpreted by two Circuit Courts to include health effects to humans. Though it appears this would not affect other Circuits, industry and our elected officials have assumed it does preclude the possibility of opposing cell towers on the grounds of health. Whatever the truth is, the fact is that much creativity is needed to find “workarounds” to slow or stop the infiltration of these unwanted and unnecessary 4G and 5G small cells. But small cells and wireless lend themselves easily to many different avenues of opposition. These include, but are not limited to: preemption of local zoning rights, fees, aesthetics, historic preservation, tribal rights, energy consumption, fires and other safety issues, cyber security, cheap infrastructure being used in lieu of the necessary and more secure fiber to our homes, creating and perpetuating the digital divide, and the fact that we have already paid for an upgrade from copper lines to fiber that was never delivered.
Below you will find resources that may prove useful in opposing 4G and 5G infrastructure. Please check back periodically as this page will change to reflect the ever evolving push to deploy, and resistance to accept, 4G and 5G small cell towers.
“Article IV, Section 51 of the Michigan Constitution states, ‘The public health and general welfare of the people of the state are hereby declared to be matters of primary public concern. The legislature shall pass suitable laws for the protection and promotion of the public health.’ Despite the convenience and the enormous economic growth potential associated with the internet of things, our primary concern as legislators is not convenience nor economic growth. As much as I love technology, per our Michigan Constitution, the public health and general welfare of the people of the state are supposed to be our primary concerns. In this light, we need to proceed with caution before we fully immerse our citizens in the internet of things. I urge my colleagues to vote ‘no’ on Senate Bill Nos. 637 and 894.” Michigan State Senator Colbeck
GOVERNMENT ACTIONS AND THE LAY OF THE LAND
The Telecom industry has been hard at work both at the federal level, lobbying Congress and the FCC, and at the state level with 5G legislation currently in about 22 states to “speed the deployment of 5G cell towers.” As we have grown accustomed to, our government is happily complying, much to the chagrin of a growing number of people.

CELL TOWERS HEALTH EFFECTS
Joel Moskowitz Ph.D.
April 30th, 2018
“Federal regulations protect the public only from the thermal (i.e., heating) risk due to short-term exposure to high intensity, cell tower radiation. The Federal regulations ignore the hundreds of studies that find harmful bio-effects from long-term exposure to non-thermal levels of cell phone radiation.
The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not allow communities to stop the siting of cell towers for health reasons. Nevertheless, landlords may be liable for any harm caused by cell phone radiation emitted by towers situated on their property.
Localities need to organize and change the Federal law to protect public health and wildlife from exposure to microwave radiation emitted by mobile phone base stations.
Following are some resources regarding the health effects of exposure to cell tower radiation. I will occasionally update this page.”

5G WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY: IS 5G HARMFUL TO OUR HEALTH?
By Joel Moskowitz Ph.D.
“The popularity, widespread use and increasing dependency on wireless technologies has spawned a telecommunications industrial revolution with increasing public exposure to broader and higher frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum to transmit data through a variety of devices and infrastructure. On the horizon, a new generation of even shorter high frequency 5G wavelengths is being proposed to power the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT promises us convenient and easy lifestyles with a massive 5G interconnected telecommunications network, however, the expansion of broadband with shorter wavelength radiofrequency radiation highlights the concern that health and safety issues remain unknown. Controversy continues with regards to harm from current 2G, 3G and 4G wireless technologies. 5G technologies are far less studied for human or environmental effects.
It is argued that the addition of this added high frequency 5G radiation to an already complex mix of lower frequencies, will contribute to a negative public health outcome both from both physical and mental health perspectives.”
RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION (RFR) AS A PROMOTER/ENABLER OF ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS
By Dr. Ronald N. Kostoff April 2018
Dr. Kostoff (Ph.D.) discusses the synergistic effects of radio frequency/microwave radiation in conjunction with other toxic environmental stresses. When discussing the health harms of cell towers in front of homes, it may be useful to remind people of the synergistic effects of wireless radiation coupled with other environmental toxins.

VERIZON CEO SAYS MMW FREQUENCIES TRAVEL FAR. DO WE REALLY NEED TO PUT THESE ANTENNAS IN FRONT OF HOMES?
We have all been told that millimeter wave frequencies travel only short distances and are easily blocked by foliage et al, and so we will need a massive deployment of small cells. Apparently now, according to Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam, that is not true.
In this 2 minute video clip, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam explains that “small” cells can be collocated on macro cells (the tall towers) half a mile from homes. The signal will travel that far, no problem…even with foliage interference.
So when industry reps, echoed by your community officials, tell you they will need a small cell every 500 feet, please show them this video clip from Verizon’s CEO.

OUTDATED FCC “SAFETY” STANDARDS
Environmental Health Trust
May prove useful in educating your community and elected reps about the irrelevant FCC RF standards.
“Fact: There Are No Safety Standards
Currently there are no national or international “standards” for safe levels of the radiation emitted by wireless or microwave devices. Instead, the US government adopted “guidelines” developed by industry based on decades old research. Guidelines have a much lower certainty than a “standard” as proper long term safety testing was not done to ensure the public was protected from all possible harm.”
