Don’t miss the next Green Sunday June 9th at 5pm on 5G, the 5th generation Big Telecom planned roll out of close proximity so-called “small” cell antennas every 2 to 8 houses on every block emitting inescapable millimeter wave wireless radiation 24/7 which would harm mammals and pollinators, risk our privacy and security, cost more than cable or fiber optic with far less reliability and speed, interfere with weather predictions, etc. Motive for 5G? You guessed it….corporate greed (with no regard for human need.)
20+ Ca cities have passed related urgency ordinances, but not yet in Alameda County — comin’ up!
Panel discussion will feature scientists and organizers.
Over 20 California cities have adopted measures to restrict the rollout of 5th Generation close proximity “small” cell antennas on every block.
Panel Discussion featuring health educator Sarah Aminoff, scientist Lloyd Morgan, and author Gar Smith. Don’t miss the audience discussion that follows!
If it proceeds as Big Telecom plans, 5G will adversely affect privacy, safety, property values, weather prediction, etc.
There are far superior alternatives, cable and fiber optic, which are more reliable, more secure, faster, and more affordable.
Lloyd Morgan is Senior Research Fellow, Environmental Health Trust, and Director, Central Brain Tumor Registry of the US. He is a retired electronic engineer who has been working on the risks of radio frequency radiation since 1991 and has published peer-reviewed studies on that topic. After helping the city of Berkeley adopt its Cell Phone Right to Know ordinance, he founded Wireless Radiation Education & Defense (WiRED) which is on the cusp of getting the city of Berkeley to adopt an ordinance restricting 5G. He is a Board Member of the International EMF (Electromagnetic Frequencies) Alliance and is also a member of the international science organizations, the Bioelectromagnetics Society, the European Bioelectromagnetics Association, and the Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium.
Gar Smith is editor emeritus of Earth Island Journal, co-founder of Environmentalists Against War, and director of the nonprofit Academic Publishing Inc. A veteran of Berkeley’s Free Speech Movement, Smith has been jailed for anti-war actions and has engaged in environmental campaigns on three continents. A Project Censored award-winning journalist, he is the recipient of the Health Journalism Award and the World Affairs Council’s Thomas More Storke International Journalism Award. He is the author of Nuclear Roulette and The War and Environment Reader, and he recently wrote “How the 5G Revolution Threatens Human Health and Nature.”
Sarah Aminoff taught freshman first year experience at Sonoma State University and health education at City College of SF, College for Teens, as well as being a K-12 educator. With United Educators of SF, she worked on a safer technology campaign for SF schools in collaboration with Environmental Health Trust’s educational campaigns on children’s health. She is the EMF Project Coordinator for FACTS (Families Advocating for Chemical & Toxics Safety) and is a member of the California Alliance for Safer Technology, a consortium of health and environmental advocates, physicians, non-profit leaders, attorneys and government officials, as well as Americans for Responsible Technology. Successful campaigns include Sierra Club CA Conservation Committee voting to oppose 5G without environmental review or local control. Ms. Aminoff will add a dynamic power point presentation to the 5G discussion.
The event will be live streamed and archived on the Green Party of Alameda County facebook page.
