THERE IS ONE WEEK LEFT TO SIGN THE APPEAL
The International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space, together with complete lists of signatures from scientists, doctors, veterinarians, beekeepers, and other professionals, individuals and organizations from almost every country, will be available in PDF format on our website approximately one week from today. I am working day and night proofreading all the signatures, removing duplicates, etc., so that it will be ready for you to deliver to your governments.
If you have not yet signed the Appeal, there is still time to sign. If you have signed before, please do not sign again.
5G NEWS ON EARTH AND IN SPACE
More 5G Satellites to Be Launched
by SpaceX at the End of October
Demonstrations against 5G on Earth have been taking place in many parts of the world (see below for the most recent events). Alarmingly, 5G in Space is being ignored. There is a reason this Appeal is called the 5G Space Appeal: the antennas on the ground will not matter if 5G in Space puts an end to all life. We have only about four months to prevent this.
I became active in 1995, not to oppose cell towers, but because Sarah Benson called me from Australia, wanting me to help her organize to stop Bill Gates and Craig McCaw from launching 840 satellites into the ionosphere for an “Internet in the Sky.” That plan never materialized, but Sarah’s fears that such a plan could destroy all life on Earth were correct.
On September 23, 1998, a company called Iridium activated 66 satellites that it had launched into the ionosphere for global cell phone service. On that morning, a majority of electrically sensitive people became suddenly ill, all over the world—so ill that many were not sure they would live. For the next two weeks, birds were not flying in the sky. Homing pigeons got lost by the thousands, and the sport of pigeon racing never recovered. Weekly mortality for the United States rose by four to five percent.
A second satellite phone service, Globalstar, began commercial service with only 48 satellites on February 28, 2000. Again came reports of nausea, headaches, leg pain, respiratory problems, depression, and lack of energy, all over the world, both from “electrically sensitive” people and from “normal” people.
Iridium emerged from bankruptcy and resumed satellite phone service on March 30, 2001. Again came reports of nausea, flu-like illness and feelings of oppression, as well as catastrophic losses of race horse foals, all over the world. On June 5, 2001, Iridium added data and Internet to its satellite service. Again came widespread reports of nausea, flu-like illness, oppression, and hoarseness.
The reason for such a drastic effect from a small number of satellites is not the direct radiation on the surface of the Earth, but the pollution of the ionosphere with millions of pulsed signals. This alters the Earth’s electromagnetic environment in which we all live, and pollutes the global electrical circuit that passes through every living thing, upon which we all depend for life and health. For the details, please read my article, “Planetary Emergency,” which I wrote on May 14, 2018. I predicted catastrophe within two years. SpaceX is right on schedule. It plans to launch 60 more satellites in late October or early November, another 180 satellites by the end of this year, and to begin what it calls “minimal” global service as soon as it has 420 satellites in place, which could be as early as February 2020. Eventually SpaceX plans to have 12,000 5G satellites in the ionosphere, but 420 is already more than six times as many as Iridium, and earthly creatures may not stand the assault.
If you are organizing events, please always talk about both the antennas and the satellites. If you are meeting with government officials, please tell them that the satellites must not go into operation. I have had a letter delivered to Kimbal Musk, who is an environmentalist and who is on the board of directors of SpaceX. Please contact me if you want to help.
European Demonstrations against 5G
The following demonstrations against 5G took place recently in Europe:
September 9, protest and march in The Hague, Netherlands (more than one thousand people)
September 21 on the Bundesplatz in Bern, Switzerland (several thousand people)
September 21 on the Platz der Menschenrechte (Plaza of Human Rights) in Vienna, Austria
September 22 on the Platz der Republik in Berlin, Germany (600 people)
News about Our Federal Lawsuit against 5G
As far as I know, the lawsuit we filed in Santa Fe, New Mexico in December 2018 is the only one of its kind in the world. Our intention is to put radio frequency radiation on trial, which has never been done before.
There are other lawsuits related to 5G. In the United States, almost 100 cities and counties, 19 Indian tribes, and the Natural Resources Defense Council have filed lawsuits against the Federal Communications Commission, and the NRDC and the Indian tribes have already won in court. But the FCC is the wrong defendant because the FCC only enforces the laws passed by Congress, and reversing an FCC order does not stop the rollout of 5G. These lawsuits are not asking the courts to halt 5G, they are not putting RF radiation on trial, and they are not addressing the constitutional violations that are costing people their health, their property, their freedom, and their lives.
Our organization, the Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety, has sued the City of Santa Fe, the Attorney General of New Mexico, and the United States of America. We are asking the court to declare that a City ordinance, a State law, and Section 704 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 are unconstitutional and void. These laws are causing injury and are depriving people of any remedy for their injuries.
On September 3, 2019, we filed a motion for preliminary injunction asking the court to halt the construction of antennas on the sidewalks of Santa Fe pending trial. The government defendants filed responses, and on October 1, 2019, we filed our reply.
We are in urgent need of funds to support this lawsuit. We are not asking for money from the government defendants, so the money to pay our lawyers and expert witnesses must come from donations. Please contribute what you can. What we do here will benefit you, no matter where you are in the world, and I don’t see anyone else doing anything similar in any other court.
If you wish to make a wire transfer or a stock transfer, or if you have specific questions, please contact me directly by email or phone. All donations from US residents are tax deductible. Our Tax ID Number is 11-3394550.
You can also support our work by purchasing my book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life (AGB Press 2017). It is the first book that tells the history of electricity from an environmental point of view. It documents the rise of cancer, heart disease and diabetes alongside the development of electricity, and explains exactly why this is so. It explains why people can hear RF radiation, and why influenza did not exist as a yearly disease until 1889 when electricity was first used for light and power around the world. Dr. Kate Showers of the University of Sussex has likened it to Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. The Invisible Rainbow is entertaining, difficult to put down, and has a bibliography that is 137 pages long. I have about 750 copies left.
I will send out another newsletter next week when the PDFs of the Appeal and signatories are posted on our website and are ready for delivery to your governments.
