1) Unfortunately, the zoom “meeting” arranged by the Americans for Responsible Technology, “How to keep 5G out of your neighbourhood”, was not accessible. On the zoom meeting page, it said that the date for it was Sept. 29. On facebook it says it will occur on Oct. 20. I have emailed to ask what the schedule is and will share when I get a response. Too bad, I was looking forward to it.
2) Federal money planned for investment in high-speed internet could and should be spent on safe, efficient means, namely fiber optic cable.
Infrastructure bank to invest $10 billion in priority areas for pandemic recovery
“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the three-year plan would create 60,000 jobs by expanding access to high-speed internet, building out agricultural irrigation infrastructure in western provinces and greening transit fleets.”
3) The wildfires that have occurred across the western parts of Canada and the US are said to be fiercer, spreading much more quickly, and many experts are blaming climate change. But so far, I haven’t seen any reports in the media about the very important fact that EMR has been shown to stress plants, and stressed trees produce more terpenes which are very combustible. And as the amount of EMR in our environment increases, it is highly likely that this problem will contribute to more and worse fires. There are a lot of important reports and links in this article.

California Wildfires and EMR radiation pollution
“Utility smart meters have caused fires at the meter or in an appliance. Smart meters transmit pulsed radiation every few seconds have dramatically increased microwave pollution.
Trees and plants are stressed, drier, and more fire prone from years of microwave radiation pollution from cell towers, cell phones, smart meters, etc.
Stressed trees and plants emit terpenes which makes them more fire prone.
Scientists conclude plants are stressed by microwave radiation.“

Subject: Resending…slightly different wording
Thank you, Sharon for sharing the instructions for sending photos to Stop 5G International.
One seemingly small correction, but to me, it feels significant:
You referred to me as “organizer of Stop 5G International”.
We’re actually an organization without an “organizer” or “structure” of any kind. We function by consensus and by each one of us generating ideas and pitching in where we can. Those with a given skillset, allotment of time, idea or inspiration take on what they can. If someone doesn’t have time or feel moved to do something, that’s all right as well.
Somehow things work out, albeit perhaps with a bit less precision and punctuality than they might were we a more traditionally “organized system” with job assignments and clearly delineated roles. But given we all very much value non hierarchical systems, the tradeoff is worth it to us. After all, how can we possibly hope to envision and ensure a world of safe technology if we ourselves are mired in hierarchy, a significant factor in the “race to 5G”, our abuse of one another and all beings, and disrespect for Mother Earth.
As the saying goes, We aspire to “be the change we wish to see.”
