OUR UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGE TO FCC IN LANDMARK CASE ON 5G, WIRELESS, AND CELL PHONE TOWER MICROWAVE RADIATION

WASHINGTON, DC, October 21, 2020—Environmental Health Trust (EHT), a leading scientific think tank, has submitted a landmark brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia opposing the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) 24-year-old wireless exposure limits to cell phones, towers, antennas, and other microwave-transmitting devices.

Response Brief Filed in Landmark Case Against FCC on 5G and Wireless Health Impacts

Children's Health Defense, 20 October 2020

PRESS CONFERENCE: Wednesday, October 21 at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
REGISTER NOW


WASHINGTON, DC, October 20, 2020—Children’s Health Defense (CHD), the children’s health advocacy group headed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., filed its response to the Federal Communications Commission’s brief on Monday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.



CHD’s case against the FCC is challenging the agency’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines” and to adopt scientific, biologically-based radio frequency emissions rules that adequately protect public health. CHD is represented by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Scott W. McCollough. The brief was filed jointly with Environmental Health Trust.

The response brief is a response to the FCC brief that was filed on September 22nd. CHD’s principal brief was filed on August 14, 2020.

Switzerland: Open letter to the Swiss Federal Council on increase in limit values

Open letter to the Swiss Federal Council on increase in limit values addressed by the association "Protection against Radiation" and other organizations
https://schutz-vor-strahlung.ch/, 30 September 2020 - translation


Mrs. Simonetta Sommaruga
President of the Swiss Confederation
Bern

Federal Councilors 

30 September 2020

Thank you for your reply to our letter of 15 July 2020. We are very pleased that the Federal Council has decided not to relax the limits, and that the great skepticism in many parts of the population is taken seriously. This shows us that the protection of the people in our country is an important concern.

But we are all the more surprised that the Federal Council - according to Sonntagsblick of 13 and 20 September 2020 - wants to introduce a "facilitation factor" for adaptive antennas, which is highly  controversial. Because in reality, such a "facilitation factor" is a massive increase in the limit values.

With this factor, the operators get permission to transmit with much more power than they are allowed via the approved building permit. With conventional antennas, radiation exposure should still never exceed the limits, but in the vicinity of adaptive antennas, exceeding the limits can be expected with certainty.

California: Police Violence Breaks Out in Struggle over 4G/5G Poles in Berkeley

Police Violence Breaks Out in Struggle over 4G/5G Poles in Berkeley
by Gar Smith, Public Comment, The Berkeley Daily Planet, 10 October 2020

A long, quiet struggle over the introduction of a new era of "4G/5G" microwave transmitters in Berkeley neighborhoods erupted into violence between midnight and dawn on October 5. Once again, the issue involved a struggle between local autonomy and corporate hegemony.

As the Natural Resources Defense Fund notes, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has sided with the Telecom giants (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, etc) and "eliminated environmental and historical review for siting certain cell towers and other wireless facilities." Under FCC law, states, towns, and individuals are specifically prohibited from citing health or environmental concerns when objecting to the planned "roll-out" of hundreds of thousands of wireless antennas that need to be placed every 500 feet in business districts and neighborhoods.

France : In the Midst of Phonegate: the “Smoke and Mirrors” Announcements of Cédric O

In the midst of Phonegate: the “smoke and mirrors” announcements of Cédric O
Equipe Phonegate, 14 octobre 2020

Should cell phone users and people living near base stations be reassured by the announcements made by the Secretary of State for the Digital Transition and Electronic Communications, concerning among others, digital technology and 5G? Our answer is clearly NO!

Indeed, we see it as a mere communication campaign to try to reassure our fellow citizens, who are more and more numerous, to no longer trust the sincerity of the public authorities regarding the health risks linked to mobile phone radiation.

As a reminder, in October 2019, following the release of the report by ANSES (French Agency for Food, Environment and Occupation Health & Safety), “Mobile phones worn close to the body and health”, the Government had announced a number of measures in a press release. None of the most important ones has been followed up!

Switzerland: Flood of Initiatives: 5G Opponents Interfere with One Another

Switzerland: FLOOD OF INITIATIVES: 5G opponents interfere with one another
by Gian Signorell, Beobachter, no. 21, 9 October 2020 - translation

5G opponents cannot agree on a common approach. Experts warn that they are wasting their energies in this way.

"The time is ripe, now we have to get started," says Peter Schlegel, board member of the environmental organization Frequencia. He speaks of collecting signatures for the Safer-Phone mobile communications initiative. The referendum aims to better protect the population from electrosmog and, in particular, from cell phone radiation.

The central element of the initiative is a new supply concept: interiors are to be accessed via cables. The providers are obliged to expand the fiber optic network into all buildings. This means that cell phone waves no longer have to penetrate thick walls. The antenna power could therefore be reduced and the radiation exposure lowered.

Speaking Out on Electrosensitivity as 5G Expands

Speaking Out on Electrosensitivity as 5G Expands
publicnewsservice.org, 9 October2020

Thousands of 5G cell service antennae are 
popping up on light poles across the nation,
prompting health concerns among some.
(Noah Davidson), 
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- As the march to install superfast 5G wireless service continues across the country, advocates for patients with electro-sensitivity are questioning the technology's safety.

Noah Davidson of Sacramento began lobbying to have 5G antennas moved away from people's homes and offices because his five- and seven-year-old nieces got sick for two months straight, right after Verizon installed a 5G box on a light pole next to their home.

The family hired an expert to measure the radio-frequency levels.

"He conducted some measurements and told us it was the highest indoor measurements that he'd ever recorded," Davidson claimed. "So, we ended up installing some shielding in the home, moving the kids into a back room. And within a few days, their symptoms went away."

California: Berkeley settles with wireless industry, will not require radiation warning to cell phone customers — for now

Berkeley settles with wireless industry, will not require radiation warning to cell phone customers — for now
by Bob Egelko, sfchronicle.com, 7 October 2020

Under pressure from a judge and federal regulators, Berkeley will not require cell phone retailers to warn customers about the possible radiation dangers of holding phones close to their bodies, says a lawyer for the city.

Berkeley’s ordinance took effect in 2016 and had survived years of legal challenges by the cell phone industry. But after the Federal Communications Commission, controlled by appointees of President Trump, found that the warnings were unnecessary and would hurt business, a federal judge ruled last month that the city was interfering with federal oversight of the industry.

Berkeley could have appealed the ruling but instead settled the case this week by agreeing not to enforce the ordinance, in exchange for an agreement by the industry group, CTIA, not to seek attorneys’ fees, said Lawrence Lessig, a Harvard law professor and a lawyer for the city.

Lessig said the arrangement was not necessarily permanent.

FCC Lawsuit Update: The FCC Fails to Protect the Public

FCC LAWSUIT UPDATE: THE FCC FAILS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC
ehtrust.org, 5 October 2020

EHT is hard at work responding to the FCC reply to the EHT et al., v. FCC legal appeal.

On September 22, 2020, the FCC filed their reply brief to our joint brief. READ IT HERE.

As expected, the FCC reply is filled with misinformation, downplaying the scientific evidence that clealy shows harm.

Listen to Devra Davis PhD MPH, President of EHT discuss the FCC response in a video interview with Theodora Scarato below. In the video we review the FCC reply brief piece by piece. It is a must watch!

The FCC reply brief to EHT, CDH and petitioners can be downloaded HERE.
