1) The internet of things (IoT) depends on 5G which depends on the smeters we are forced to have on our homes. This excellent video describes how our health and privacy are at risk if the 5G grid is allowed to be established. The first step, smeters, is brought into focus at 18:25 min. point. The increased radiation from every “smart” device (which is planned to include mundane things like lamps, shoes, and food containers) communicating 24/7 with the smeter will make our homes unhealthy and our privacy a thing of the past. There is a transcript as well as the video.
The 5G Dragnet
“Telecom companies are currently scrambling to implement fifth-generation cellular network technology. But the world of 5G is a world where all objects are wired and constantly communicating data to one another. The dark truth is that the development of 5G networks and the various networked products that they will give rise to in the global smart city infrastructure, represent the greatest threat to freedom in the history of humanity.”

2) The number of countries now having Stop 5G events tomorrow is growing, and the enthusiasm is building. The Stop 5G group would like to get photos of your event and short videos for a montage. Info about the length and where to send is in the article. If you can’t make it to a rally tomorrow, mark your calendar for the next protest day, April 25. With 3 months notice, and nicer weather, we should be able to have some amazing events here in BC. In Victoria, see you at noon on the Helmcken/TransCanada overpass. Bring your signs.

THE MOMENTUM NOW IS EXTRAORDINARY
As of last counting, over 240 events have been planned in 36 countries around the world for the First Ever 5G Global Protest Day which will take place on January 25th, 2020.
3) Another important court ruling in the US involving 5G small cells/microcells and NEPA. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will not overrule it. This court decision, and the reasons for it, form a cogent argument that is pertinent for us in Canada to make to ISED, I believe, even though I am not a aware of any law here similar to NEPA. Please let me know if there is one. So far, there has been no testing re. health, environment, energy usage, etc. re. 5G. Time we pushed for this.
“On August 9, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued a decision substantially setting back the efforts of the Federal Communications Commission to expedite the deployment of 5G technology. The FCC had issued an order in March 2018 eliminating environmental and historic preservation review of so-called 5G cell towers. The FCC had reasoned that even though the industry planned to deploy as many as 800,000 of these 50-foot (possibly taller) towers in neighborhoods and historic districts around the country by 2026, it was not in the public interest to review their potential impacts.
In an appeal brought by the Natural Resources Defense Council and several Native American Tribes, the Court found that the FCC had failed to adequately address possible harms of its deregulatory efforts and the benefits of environmental and historic preservation review. In particular, the Court observed that the FCC had failed to address the cumulative harms that may result from “densification,” i.e. crowding of multiple cell towers in a limited area; the potential harms from co-location of multiple cell facilities on a single pole; and the concern that the FCC was speeding deployment of cell towers when it had not completed its ongoing investigation into the potential health effects of low-intensity radiofrequency radiation.”
