A few updates:
1.  TAKE ACTION TUESDAY FROM AMERICANS FOR RESPONSIBLE TECHNOLOGY
Easy, effective, quick way to make a difference. Please watch this short clip on the OTARD regulations and call Congressman Pallone. All you will need is provided at this link.

2. “OVERSIGHT OF THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION” Courtesy of Michigan for Safe Technology. 

 
Everything you need to contact the Senate Commerce Committee members can be found at the link. (A bit late, but still doable.) 

“This coming Wednesday, June 12, the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation is holding an Oversight Hearing, and the FCC commissioners are being called-upon to testify.  This is an opportunity to submit questions about the safety of 5G, and to ask why current guidelines have not been updated in 23 years.

Please call and write the members of the Commerce, Science & Transportation committee with the following (suggested) questions for the FCC.  Please do this before Tuesday [or by Wednesday morning!]”  Instructions are easy to follow. 


3. BRUCE KUSHNICK AND THE IRREGULATORS TAKE ON THE FCC – UPDATE. 

Taking on the FCC: Unraveling a $500 Billion Rip-Off  June 7th, 2019 | David Rosen | Counterpunch
“On May 20th, a group known as the Irregulators submitted legal briefs to the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, seeking standing to appeal a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision that, in effect, has facilitated one of the largest accounting scandals in American history.  The petitioners are accusing the FCC of allowing the nation’s telecommunications companies – the telecom trust – to engage in a bookkeeping slight-of-hand scam that cost telecom users, states and tax payers across the country an estimated $50-$60 billion a year over the last decade.”

4. A few days ago I sent an attachment of a superb e-book, Swarmwise, by Rick Falvinge on how to organize an effective public awareness campaign and political movement. 
Here is a link to the book so it can be more easily shared. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who is involved in activism.

5. TREE LETTERS  Environmental reasons to reduce wireless and electromagnetic exposures. 

URGING WIRELESS ROLLBACK TO PROTECT TREES AND OUR ENVIRONMENT – GENERAL TESTIMONY  Last Tree Laws
Risks to health from wireless or electricity exposures may wrongly be assumed to be psychologically-derived or a problem belonging only to other people, rather than oneself. However, electromagnetic exposures impact all life, including the environment on which we depend for sustenance.

Existing honeybee studies have shown wireless causes hive desertion,stress, and curtails honey and egg production.(2,3,4) Hive desertion has mimicked Colony Collapse Disorder, with worker bees leaving behind the queen and honey. Studies as far back as the 1970s have reported that the navigational abilities of bees is disturbed by high-voltage lines. High-voltage lines are also a component of the electromagnetic spectrum. A recent experimental study observed high-voltage lines may reduce pollination efficiency by causing changes in memory, learning, motor and foraging ability (5).

6. POLICY REPORT: Small Cell Facilities in Boulder, CO  Planning Ahead for an Evolving Legal Regime  June 4th, 2019 | Prepared by Grant Wilson
This document provides a very useful overview and legal advice about navigating the 5g local ordinance battlefield. You will find some useful information to share with city officials charged with the nearly impossible task of writing a local ordinance that respects the safety, health, privacy, and well-being of the community. 

“The primary goal of ​Small Cell Facilities in Boulder, CO: Planning Ahead for an Evolving Legal Regime (‘Small Cell Facilities Report’ or ‘Report’) is to inform decision makers in the City of Boulder (‘Boulder’), as well as other interested governments, about how to most effectively regulate small cell facilities in accordance with local, state, and federal laws.”

7. PENNSYLVANIA ACTION: 
 
The Legislature is holding hearings on 5G. Contact the Consumer Affairs Committee [https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/CteeInfo/index.cfm?Code=10&CteeBody=H] and your senator and representative and tell them NO 5G in Pennsylvania. Points to emphasize (shared by Pennsylvania Smart Meter Awareness). 
 
Stop 5G!
5G is a massive and dangerous experiment
on public and environmental health.
FACT #1:
5G combines microwave and millimeter wave wireless radiation. There is no scientific
evidence to support any claim of 5G safety.
FACT #2
5G requires significantly more cell towers which will increase involuntary exposure to
wireless radiation in our communities.
FACT #3
Hundreds of scientists and public health experts from around the world are demanding
a moratorium on the deployment of 5G.
FACT #4
The 30 million dollar, ten year US National Toxicology Program study found clear
evidence of cancer from exposure to wireless radiation.
FACT #5
Thousands of independent studies show adverse health impacts from wireless
radiation. Children are more vulnerable, and they depend on us to protect them. Studies
also show wireless radiation harms birds, bees, trees and nature.
FACT #6
People are already getting injured by cell towers, smart phones, wi-fi, smart meters and
other wireless devices.
FACT #7
The government’s human exposure guidelines haven’t been updated in more than
twenty years—and are only concerned with thermal exposures.
FACT #8
5G signals don’t travel far, so unless people oppose 5G, antennas will be installed every
couple hundred feet apart— next to homes, apartments, parks, and schools.
FACT #9
Telecom companies like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon are rushing to install 4G LTE
“small cell” antennas —the foundation for 5G— as quickly as possible.
FACT #10
When people oppose “small cell” 4G and 5G antennas may be denied, and leaders may
create ordinances to better protect the public and the environment.

8. Will keep you posted on how this develops, as it’s as of yet, unconfirmed. 
 

Prime Minister of Poland Signs Global Appeal to Stop 5G Telecommunications Transmission? Unconfirmed  June 10th, 2019 | Julian Rose | Global Research
“The records of the Stop 5G Global Appeal indicate that Poland’s Kancelaria Prezesa Rady Ministrow (Chancellery of the Council of Ministers), which is chaired by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has endorsed the appeal under the Category “Organizations”, scroll down to Poland.  (see screenshot below)There has, however, been no official confirmation from the Polish government of this historic decision.”
