2021-06-01 Time Sensitive: Zoom Wed. 3 PM Pittsfield Board of Health cell tower health effects forum

1) Tomorrow, Wednesday June 02 at 6 PM EST or 3 PM PT, there will be a major presentation, in essence a public forum on health effects associated with cell towers. Several people became ill after a Verizon cell tower was activated in Pittsfield, MA. Below are 2 letters with full details.

For the many of us who are fighting cell towers in our communities right now, this could be most helpful. It is hoped that a video will be available for those who cannot attend, but this is not promised. I hope you will attend if you can.

2) Thanks to a member for sharing this disturbing news. Going live June 8, Amazon is going to make each home a source of Wi-Fi to be shared (?) throughout the neighbourhood. Health, privacy of no concern. What if you don’t want your neighbours’ Wi-Fi traveling through your home (even more than now)? Can you sue for trespass? This is presented as a “community service”!

Amazon Sidewalk will create entire smart neighborhoods. Here’s what you should know

“Launching June 8 on Echo speakers, Ring products, Tile trackers and more, Amazon’s low-bandwidth internet-of-things network lets your smart home stretch beyond Wi-Fi range….

Amazon has had its sights set on the smart home ever since Alexa came along — but now the online megaretailer is thinking bigger, and envisioning entire smart neighborhoods. First announced in 2019, the effort is called Amazon Sidewalk, and it uses a small fraction of your home’s Wi-Fi bandwidth to pass wireless low-energy  Bluetooth and 900MHz radio signals between compatible devices across far greater distances than Wi-Fi is capable of on its own — in some cases, as far as half a mile, Amazon says.

You’ll share that bandwidth with your neighbors, creating a sort of network of networks that any Sidewalk-compatible device can take advantage of. Along with making sure things like outdoor smart lights and smart garage door openers stay connected when your Wi-Fi can’t quite reach them, that’ll help things like Tile trackers stay in touch if you drop your wallet while you’re out on a walk, or if your dog hops the fence.”


3) Another lawsuit against 5G, this one in India by a celebrity.

‘Radiation is extremely harmful’: Juhi Chawla files suit against the implementation of 5G in India

“Bollywood actress and environmentalist Juhi Chawla, who’s been raising awareness about various social causes through her platform, has filed a suit against the implementation of 5G in India.

An official statement shared by Juhi’s spokesperson reads: “The present suit is being instituted in order to seek a direction from this Hon’ble court to the arrayed Defendants, to certify to us and, therefore, to the public at large, that 5G technology is safe to humankind, man, woman, adult, child, infant, animals and every type of organisms, to flora, to fauna, and in support thereof, to produce their respective studies regarding RF radiation through mobile cell towers, and if not already conducted, to also conduct an efficient research, and without participation of private interest, and to subsequently furnish the report and declare whether or not the implementation of 5G in India would be safe, keeping un regards the health and safety of the present and future citizenry on India, including little children and infants, as well as infants of generations to come.””




Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, Wednesday at 6 pm is the Pittsfield Board of Health cell tower health effects forum. Please call (or write) in to share a (up to three minute) comment on our behalf. Good people have been hurting since last summer. The message is please hear us and help us by requesting the Board of Health members please take action on our behalf of us here in the cell tower neighborhood. We are so grateful for this forum, but for those who have been harmed and hurting, this has been an awfully long time to wait. For those who have already moved from their family home, it is too late. For those with cancer, or newly diagnosed with cancer, the concern about the tower’s impact and accelerating tumor formation has already been devastating. We cannot wait while people are sick, suffering or concerned about a tower that is radiating 24/7 we have no control over before the city takes action on behalf of those harmed.

Presenters will include Dr. David Carpenter, Sheena Symington, Dr. Magda Havas and Dr. Heroux, PhD. They will also discuss info from Dr. Woolf and Dr. Goldberg and an engineer from VComm Telecommunications Engineering, who will be doing EMF measurements in June.

Dr. Woolf, a lead poisoning specialist, and his office sent me FCC “Safety Sheets.” As we know, the FCC is not a safety agency and any doctor who believes this to be true, fails to understand the issue. Dr. Carpenter, Dr. Havas, Dr. Heroux have all spoken on our behalf before and are excellent. Dr. Goldberg has testified before congress on this issue. I have never meet Sheena, but hear she is excellent as well.

Residents are welcome to send specific questions, I will compile them and send them to Gina. You can also send them to garmstrong@cityofpittsfield.org or could provide her with a letter if you want to share a written comment. Please cc me so we can have a copy. The numbers of those writing in continue to go underreported.

We are the second item on the agenda, so please log on at 5:50/5:55, please bear with us as there may be a small wait until health effects from cell towers is discussed.

We have waited over 276 days for this opportunity and are grateful to each of you for your assistance in getting us to this critical point. And thank you for being with us. This has been a marathon and not a sprint like we had hoped. We can only keep advocating because of each of you.




Wednesday 6 p.m. EST: Groundbreaking Pittsfield MA

Board of Health Cell Tower Forum

More than a dozen children and adults became ill after a Verizon cell tower was turned on in Pittsfield, MA during the pandemic.

The residents have been asking their local officials to protect them for nearly a year to no avail.

As is the case with most town boards, the Pittsfield Health Director and Board of Health admit they know very little about the biological effects of today’s wireless technology.

So they turned to state-level authorities who offered to join them for a public forum, and to conduct an epidemiological study.

Then the Massachusetts Department of Public Health rescinded both offers.

We are grateful the Pittsfield Board of Health is following through on its promise to still hold a public forum and bring in qualified experts.

Please join us on Wednesday, June 2 at 6 p.m. EST to show support and learn directly from:

Sheena Symington, Director, The Electrosensitive Society

Magda Havas, PhD, EMF Scientist and Professor Emeritus of Trent University

Paul Heroux, PhD, Professor of Toxicology & Health Effects of Electromagnetism, McGill University

This will be a good educational forum to share with your own town’s Board of Health, Select Board/City Councilors, Zoning and Planning Boards, and Legal Council.

For far too long the wireless industry has given our towns disinformation and financial incentives to install toxic wireless infrastructure. They deserve to know the facts and the risks.

Please invite your town, and your loved ones, to learn from the experts being brought in to Pittsfield. (We hope video will be available to share afterwards since we were given short notice.)
Thank you to the courageous residents of Pittsfield for helping to educate your public servants, engaging the media, and for your indomitable spirit in leading the way to protect others!

See the News page at MA for Safe Technology for articles on the Pittsfield cell tower.

Let’s show our support, and use this opportunity to help advance education and protect our own towns too.

Kind regards,

Cece & the MA for Safe Technology Team
