For Your Listening Pleasure
In the Fourth Global 5G Protest Day of 2020, towns, cities and Islands from 25 countries rose up across the world to call for Safe Wired Technology (aka SafeG™), Not 5G. Increasingly discouraged by the lack of balanced media coverage on the harms of 5G, people are taking to the streets to voice their objection and to raise public awareness.

While scientists issue strong warnings about the harmful effects of wireless radiation, 5G is being rolled out around the world with no safety studies and largely without public knowledge or consent.

5G hopes to connect every “thing” and “event” on Earth as part of the internet of things, smart cities and smart regions. To do so will require roughly 100,000 satellites, millions of new cell tower antennas, User Terminals and a plethora of Earth-based Stations blanketing us and all life with ever more wireless radiation.

Further at issue is the increasing loss of privacy and civil liberties predicated on the rollout of 5G; impacts on human health as well as on wildlife from yet more radiation saturating Earth and skies; 5G’s enormous e-footprint from resource extraction, energy consumption, space debris and fallout from collisions, psycho-social effects, not to mention the potential effects on the electrical circuit around Earth that sustains all life on this planet.

Protesters believe there is just too much at stake for our future to be governed by short-term interests of private corporations. Rather we should chart a course into the future that is respectful and protective of all life on Earth.

It is our hope that these days of peaceful actions will continue to contribute to greater public awareness of 5G. The time is long overdue to start a dialogue about wiser technology options for a safer and more life-affirming future for all.

Louise Thomas was to deliver this passionate speech in London for the September 26th Global 5G Protest day, but the police broke in and dispersed the crowds. Nonetheless, Louse gave and recorded her speech that day to an audience of one. 

In her speech Louse enjoins us to “remember, we are sovereign beings and we create our future reality.” Please enjoy and share widely. 

“Great speech by dynamic and beautiful Louise…go girl!!!!
Do listen carefully as Louise highlights important details around the roll out of 5G that we do all need to be aware of and consider very carefully. 5G is not just having a serious inpact on our lives.,,it really concerning that we our effectively not only destroying the planet… but our children’s future. We must act now before it is too late!”

 Not everyone finds themselves in a position where they can participate in the Global Protest Day events. Here’s what one woman did to mark the day when, due to health limitations, she was not able to join an event.  She wrote: 
From Now On I Wear a Leaf
 Dear Friends,
 As I am unwell and unable to do much at the moment, I wanted to find a way to honour the protest tomorrow. Right now I can’t drive again and am rather kiboshed! I have come off social media as the self-righteous finger pointing and in-fighting was too much to bear. The 1% love with the rest of us fighting amongst ourselves, I refuse. 

The algorithms deployed to manipulate us are super powerful but love is more powerful. I am eternally grateful to you my dear friends, those I know and those of you I have only seen on email but who are steadfastly holding the light and pushing truth. 

This is my anti 5G protest for the 26th of September 2020. It’s an invitation.

From now on I wear a leaf.
I will pin it to my clothes or have it as an earring or a hat, but I will make sure it is noticeable. It will be a symbol of  LOVE♥️ EARTH🌎 AND FREEDOM✊🏽
LEAF for short. 
♥️ 🌎✊🏽

I hope it will serve as a tool to promote comment and discussion. It could also be a symbol to other awake folks that there is an ally in the room. That they are not alone. The leaf in all it’s many forms could even possibly be a pan international symbol of our movement to bring awareness of the horrors involved in the deployment of this dangerous technology. 

🌲I wear a leaf to show I commit to sharing love more openly with people and any living being.
🌳I wear a leaf to show my commitment to caring for Planet Earth and her inhabitants. 
🌴I wear a leaf to show I commit to not knowingly buying or renting 5G enabled equipment and trying to discourage others from doing so by sharing reliable well-vetted information. 
🌱I wear a leaf to show I commit to reducing my own personal use of wireless to protect life on earth.
🌿I wear a leaf to show I commit to choosing freedom of choice, freedom from the tyranny of technology and in so doing I choose kindness. 
🍃I wear a leaf to show I commit to sharing information with a view to raising awareness, face to face with real eye contact and love.
🍀 I wear a leaf to show I will never give up talking about the dangers identified by the INTERNATIONAL APPEAL to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space and the dedicated and fantastically brave scientists, doctors and other amazing people who have researched and shared the truth.

I guess we might all have different versions of what we might commit to, eh?

Cheers me dears
Susie from Swansea. XXX;

Please share this invitation to the EMF Medical Conference with health care providers. Once doctors begin to understand the health impacts of wireless, they will not only be better equipped to care for public health, but will be valuable allies in many legal actions around the world. This conference is an essential “next step” in our awakening from the 5G “consensus trance”.

The following initiative is quite hopeful and inspiring. Please consider joining, and sharing widely.

Letters to the United Nations
The 24th of October is UN Day. Stop 5G International will be sending an Open Letter to the United Nations regarding human rights violations, social injustices, loss of privacy and security, impacts on health and wildlife, and the enormous e-footprint of 5G.  

We invite others to send a message to the UN as well sharing your own reasons for opposing 5G. This suggested letter  can serve as a starting point, but please do include your own personal message.

If we all do this fairly simple action we can work wonders! Many thanks!

 Degrowth And 5G’s Mega E-Footprint Although degrowth isn’t directly about 5G, there is no doubt that the driving force behind 5G is perpetual growth – industry et al’s vision of connecting every single thing, moment in time, and point in space to the internet. The notion is that this will solve all the ills of society and bring an end to suffering. (E.g. see the trailer to Verizon’s new documentary on 5G – Speed of Thought). Reminding people of what they likely are sensing about perpetual growth can go a long way toward increasing public awareness about the harms of 5G and our desire to ensure a safer, saner, and more life affirming technology future.
Resources for a Better Future: Degrowth. François Schneider, Joanna Pope | Resilience – originally published by Uneven Earth
“Degrowth is a movement that explores another direction for society, one where ecological and social justice become possible, along with more meaningful lives. While there is no single definition for degrowth, this entry attempts to offer some guidance for understanding degrowth in all its diversity.
First, degrowth is a variety of challenges to the current status quo. Secondly, degrowth is not just a form of critique, but also encompasses diverse and interrelated positive utopian visions for the world. Thirdly, degrowth offers a set of paths for societal transformation in order to make these utopias possible.”

“The technologies we choose are of vital importance and should help us live lightly on the planet.”

5G and the Myth of a Green Transition. Sept. 11th, 2020 | Jobak17 | Rethinking Security for a just and peaceful world
“Although this digital high-tech future is sold to us as a means to a socially just and sustainable world (smart cities, energy efficiency), it is essentially about economic growth and is already having a devastating environmental impact. The fact is that digital technologies demand unprecedented amounts of mineral extraction, create large amounts of toxic waste, and are highly energy intensive. Yet most of us are barely aware of this. The use of digital devices often traps us in a separate reality, disconnected from the physical presence of one another and the earth, and lulls us into a false complacency. The terminology itself can be deliberately misleading. As Philippe Bihouix reminds us, “The world has not become ‘immaterial’ with the Internet: … storage in the Cloud does not make the electricity consumption of the Internet and its connected devices disappear”. Even the word, ‘ecosystem’ has been hijacked to mean digital connection.”

“It is time to call for a pause to 5G and the digital ambitions of the World Economic Forum, and make space for a genuine discussion on how we would like our digital future to look and how we might get there. We will be told that it is too late and that the wireless future has already been decided – but the Earth will definitely be on our side!”

White Paper Digital Technology and the Environment
Using the Digital Transition to Accelerate the Ecological Transition

This document was produced by a working group involving:
Damien Demailly, Mathieu Saujot (IDDRI),
Renaud Francou, Daniel Kaplan, Jacques François Marchandise (FING), Marine Braud, Aurélie Pontal (WWF France), Frédéric Bordage (, François Levin and Jan Krewer (CNNum) | 2018 Iddri, FING, WWF France,
“The ecological transition is an inevitable process, a goal to be achieved, yet the pathway there is still unclear. The digital transition is one of the major forces for change of our time, but it lacks any specific objectives. Here, we propose several avenues for harnessing the transformative power of digital technology to support the ecological transition.”

What Will 5G Mean for the Environment?
Jan. 30th, 2020 | Claire Curran | The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington
“Beginning 2020, the fifth generation of wireless technology is expected to be widely implemented throughout the world. The new network, called 5g, promises to give faster speeds and a higher capacity for the use of more devices. However, while companies from countries such as the United States and China are competing to be the first to deliver 5g to the consumer, the environmental impacts of the new network are being overlooked. In a time when the environment is at its most delicate, overlooking these impacts is extremely risky for future generations.

The main environmental issues associated with the implementation of the 5G network come with the manufacturing of the many component parts of the 5G infrastructure. In addition, the proliferation of new devices that will use the 5G network that is tied to the acceleration of demand from consumers for new 5G-dependent devices will have serious environmental consequences.”

Africa enables the “digital revolution” by its rare earth minerals, e-waste processing, & the resultant ecological devastation. Yet it lags far behind the digital growth of other countries. Time to play “catch up” or to call for Digital Sobriety worldwide?

Africa’s digitalization and the ecological dilemma. July 28th, 2020 | Cédric Leterme | Latin America 
“Almost everyone is convinced that Africa’s economic and social development is dependent upon its ‘digital transformation’. Yet the continent is already paying a heavy social, economic and maybe above all environmental price for the development of these technologies. Under these conditions, can we imagine a digital development that is both equitable and sustainable for Africa, but also on a global scale?“
“…many of the raw materials needed for the production and operation of the various digital devices come from Africa. The production of smartphones, for example, requires the use of metals (more than 40), some of which are found in very limited quantities and whose extraction has a particularly high environmental cost: deforestation, water pollution, mining waste, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.”
 France, Over 60 Mayors And Officials Call For A 5G Moratorium.
Sept. 2020 | Environmental Health Trust  “The environmental impact induced by digital uses continues to increase, and, with the explosion of uses, the gains expected by the falsely called ‘dematerialization’ have not been demonstrated. …In addition, the deployment of 5G will exponentially accelerate the exploitation of non-renewable natural resources, pollution due to the extraction of rare metals, and the generation of a quantity of waste that can hardly be recycled. At present, a very small number of mobile phones in circulation and on sale are compatible with 5G. The deployment of this mobile network will therefore involve the renewal of a large part of the equipment, further increasing the ecological footprint and the weight of waste, in an attempt to benefit from a technological innovation whose usefulness remains to be demonstrated. A preliminary environmental impact study on 5G is therefore necessary before considering its deployment.” 

Dear Greta: Letter #1 – Dreaming of a Visible Internet Footprint Sept. 23rd, 2020 | Katie Singer | Sci Tech | 
“Let me say a bit more about the Internet, the largest thing that humanity has built. In order to tweet, text, make a video, stream a video, post on social media, research online, do a GPS search, purchase anything online, attend a Zoom meeting (do any online activity), you need three things: a device, internationally deployed access networks, and data storage.
Producing every device (tablet, smartphone, desktop, laptop, iWatch, etc.) starts with design (by energy-intensive robots) and extraction of ores. To ‘reduce’ metals from their ores, the ores need smelting and/or refining.
Smelting and refining depend on CO2-emitting electric plants fueled by coal, fracked gas, nuclear power and/or hydro power. In most cases, renewables cannot power smelting or refining, since smelters need to be kept at 1800°F for six or seven years at a time.
Access networks provide cellular sites that receive and transmit signals between mobile devices. Access networks depend on electricity, batteries, fiber optic cables, antennas, satellites and cooling systems.”

Part Two of Surveillance Capitalism at the Limits to Economic Growth – Social Controls through Digital Infrastructures have Bio-Physical Limits. Feb. 7th, 2020 | Brian Davey | Credo Economics
“In the today’s world one form of trying to shape the future beyond an appropriate scale is described by environmentalists with the words ‘overshoot and collapse’. Overshoot is the hubris of using a huge volume of resources with an unsustainable impact on the planet’s ecological carrying capacity – eventually leading to a collapse, which is an ecological and societal ‘Nemesis’.
Zuboff appears to be almost entirely oblivious to the fact that the context of the surveillance capitalism drama is being played out just as the global economy has reached and overshot the bio-physical limits of the carrying capacity of the planet…..But these are not parallel crises that are unconnected. Surveillance capitalism is embodied and embedded in a developing technical infrastructure that guzzles energy, most of it leads to carbon emissions which exacerbate the climate crisis even as it depletes the sources of coal, oil and gas – and now lithium, cobalt, nickel and other minerals. These are becoming more expensive to extract – thus undermining the sustainable development of the techno-infrastructure on which the economy increasingly depends.”

 Health Building science and radiofrequency radiation: What makes smart and healthy buildings
Frank M.Clegg, Margaret Sears, Margaret Friesen, Theodora Scarato, Rob Metzinger, Cindy Russell, Alex Stadtnerg, Anthony B. Miller
“Radiofrequency radiation (RFR), used for wireless communications and ‘smart’ building technologies, including the ‘Internet of Things,’ is increasing rapidly. As both RFR exposures and scientific evidence of harmful effects increase apace, it is timely to heed calls to include low RFR levels as a performance indicator for the health, safety and well-being of occupants and the environment.
Adverse biochemical and biological effects at commonly experienced RFR levels indicate that exposure guidelines for the U.S., Canada and other countries are inadequate to protect public health and the environment.
Some industry liability insurance providers do not offer coverage against adverse health effects from radiation emitted by wireless technologies, and insurance authorities deem potential liability as ‘high.’ Internationally, governments have enacted laws, and medical and public health authorities have issued recommendations, to reduce and limit exposure to RFR.
There is an urgent need to implement strategies for no- or low-RFR emitting technologies, and shielding, in building design and retrofitting. These strategies include installing wired (not wireless) Internet networks, corded rather than cordless phones, and cable or wired connections in building systems (e.g., mechanical, lighting, security). Building science can profit from decades of work to institute performance parameters, operationalizing prudent guidelines and best practices. The goal is to achieve RFR exposures that are ALARA, ‘As Low As Reasonably Achievable.’
We also challenge the business case of wireless systems, because wired or cabled connections are faster, more reliable and secure, emit substantially less RFR, and consume less energy in a sector with rapidly escalating greenhouse gas emissions.“

An Open Message to ICNIRP’s Eric van Rongen and Rodney Croft.  Oct. 6th, 2020 | Dariusz Leszczynski
Eric van Rongen was the Chair of ICNIRP during preparation and publication of the 2020 update of the ICNIRP Guidelines for RF-EMF exposures. Currently, Eric van Rongen is the Vice-Chair of ICNIRP.
“Dear Eric and Rodney,
In the spring 2020, ICNIRP has published a revision of the 1998 safety guidelines for the exposures to RF-EMF.
The message coming out of this revision of the guidelines is loud and clear. In ICNIRP’s opinion, the 2020 ICNIRP Guidelines provide health safety for any user exposed to RF-EMF, no matter of age status, no matter of health status, no matter whether exposures will be acute or chronic, that will last a lifetime:
‘…guidelines for limiting exposure to EMFs that will provide a high level of protection for all people against substantiated adverse health effects from exposures to both short- and long-term, continuous and discontinuous radiofrequency EMFs.’
I am, as many users of the wireless technology, curious what is the explanation for the following assurances:”

Letter by Dr Paul Héroux, PhD McGill University, Montreal, Canada regarding proposed 5G rollout in Penticton, Canada  Oct. 4th, 2020 | Paul Héroux | Oliver Daily News
Excellent resource for politicians and community leaders facing telecom infrastructure invasions.  
“I have unique insight in how the telecom industry works, and therefore shall be straightforward with you. Public health is already being harmed with 4G, Wi-Fi and cell towers. 5G would add to the present detrimental health effects of EMR. 5G is being pushed by industry simply to expand markets for cell phones and streaming video.”

“Radio Frequency Radiation Health Risks: Implications for 5G”  Sept. 29th, 2020 | Joel Moskowitz | Occupational and Environmental Medicine Grand Rounds

Mark Alexander: Starlink is the wrong path to broadband  Oct. 5th, 2020 | Commentary by Mark Alexander | VT Digger
Editor’s note: This commentary is by Mark Alexander, of Rochester, a retired software engineer who worked in Silicon Valley for 39 years.
“In a recent commentary, Jock Gill writes that SpaceX Starlink, Elon Musk’s network of thousands of satellites, is superior to fiber to home for broadband. His commentary ignores the many disadvantages of wireless internet systems….Starlink is similar to 5G that it transmits microwaves in highly directional beams in the 20 GHz region. This means that we (and all living things) are going to be irradiated with even more powerful microwaves than we were with 4G and previous wireless systems, all without our consent.
Many scientists are deeply concerned about the effects of this ever-increasing dose of radiation on living things, and there are already many people who are highly sensitive to the weaker radiation emitted by Wi-Fi and 4G antennas. It’s time to use the precautionary principle and call a halt to these new sources of radiation, which have not been studied for health effects, before more damage is done.”
“Vermont needs to avoid the use of short term wireless solutions to the broadband gap.  Fiber to the home and other wired internet systems are efficient, safe, secure, cost-effective, high quality and future-proof.”

However, the newly launched satellites aren’t in position yet, and SpaceX hasn’t revealed an exact availability date.
After yesterday’s launch of 60 Starlink satellites, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that ‘[o]nce these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to roll out a fairly wide public beta in northern US & hopefully southern Canada.

European Parliament 5G policy position.  PE 646.172 – March 2020 
EPRS | European Parliamentary Research Service
Author: Miroslava Karaboytcheva Members’ Research Service
Effects of 5G wireless communication on human health 
“The fifth generation of telecommunications technologies, 5G, is fundamental to achieving a European gigabit society by 2025.
The aim to cover all urban areas, railways and major roads with uninterrupted fifth generation wireless communication can only be achieved by creating a very dense network of antennas and transmitters. In other words, the number of higher frequency base stations and other devices will increase significantly.
This raises the question as to whether there is a negative impact on human health and environment from higher frequencies and billions of additional connections, which, according to research, will mean constant exposure for the whole population, including children. Whereas researchers generally consider such radio waves not to constitute a threat to the population, research to date has not addressed the constant exposure that 5G would introduce. Accordingly, a section of the scientific community considers that more research on the potential negative biological effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and 5G is needed, notably on the incidence of some serious human diseases. A further consideration is the need to bring together researchers from different disciplines, in particular medicine and physics or engineering, to conduct further research into the effects of 5G.” 

And from the conclusion: 

“Optical fibre technology has been suggested by some experts as a secure alternative to 5G, because the signal is confined within the fibre. Its potential is much higher than that of 5G and there is no comparison between optical fibre and wireless. Investment in optical fibre can be upgraded to superior speeds in the future, whereas it is necessary to change the whole system for wireless technologies.
The road ahead for 5G.”

 Assortment Of Topics A Verizon documentary was released that aims to show industry’s perspective of what’s possible with 5G.

“Directed by Emmy award-winning documentary film-maker Mila Aung-Thwin, the film was ‘produced in partnership with Verizon,’ according to the carrier.

Of note: 
1. Verizon felt the need for an entire documentary presumably to get more buy-in to 5G.
2. Judging from the trailer, they are playing on people’s fears. The trailer depicts one life-threatening situation after another, with 5G coming to the rescue and saving the day. 
They go as far as to say that by 2028 all threats to human safety will be eliminated due to 5G. “The goal is to eliminate serious injuries by 2027.” 

Verizon documentary aims to answer: Who needs 5G?  Sept. 17th, 2020 | Bevin Fletcher | Fierce Wireless
“Technologies and companies featured in the film alongside 5G include: an augmented reality-enabled mask that in the future could help firefighters navigate smokey environments (Qwake Technologies); tailored AR experiences that help students in underserved communities learn about the history of civil rights through immersive learning rather than textbooks (Movers and Shakers); and a test program in the city of Sacramento with 5G-connected cameras for pedestrian and traffic safety.  
Another highlight is medical robotics company Corindus, which used 5G to complete a robotic-assisted test heart procedure in San Francisco from a control station in Boston. While a remote procedure could already take place fairly easily right now, the goal is to reach locations that have limited or no on-site options for people who have had a heart attack or stroke.”

“The Department of Defense is at the forefront of cutting edge 5G testing and experimentation, which will strengthen our Nation’s warfighting capabilities as well as U.S. economic competitiveness in this critical field. Through these test sites, the Department is leveraging its unique authorities to pursue bold innovation at a scale and scope unmatched anywhere else in the world. Importantly, today’s announcement demonstrates the Department’s commitment to exploring the vast potential applications and dual-use opportunities that can be built upon next-generation networks,” said Michael Kratsios, Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering.”  Department of Defense

DOD Announces $600 Million for 5G Experimentation and Testing at Five Installations. Oct. 8th, 2020 | US Department of Defense 
“Today, the Department of Defense announced $600 million in awards for 5G experimentation and testing at five U.S. military test sites, representing the largest full-scale 5G tests for dual-use applications in the world. Each installation will partner military Services, industry leaders, and academic experts to advance the Department’s 5G capabilities. Projects will include piloting 5G-enabled augmented/virtual reality for mission planning and training, testing 5G-enabled Smart Warehouses, and evaluating 5G technologies to enhance distributed command and control.”

The best argument to stop 5G antennas coming into your neighborhood is that 5G does not work. 5G is nearly the same speed or slower than 4G.
“5G is pretty bogus.”  Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, Computer World

At this point, 5G is a bad joke – Computerworld   Sept. 17th, 2020 | Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols | Computer World
“Who doesn’t want more bandwidth? I sure do, [I don’t] and I currently have 300Mbps to my home office via Spectrum cable. What I really want is a Gigabit via fiber optic to my doorstep. Maybe I’ll get it someday. But, what I do know for a fact is I’m not going to get Gigabit-per-second speeds from 5G. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.
At the moment, there are a lot of things the telecomms are telling you in one ad after another that’s just not true. I know – shocking news right? But, even by their standards, 5G is pretty bogus.”

A Few Updates from Around The World  CANADA:
5G Winnipeg Awareness Rally  September 26th, 2020 
Video coverage of the Winnipeg Global Protest Day and delivery of letter to CEO of telco company.

As reported by Sharon Noble from Canada: 
In Cyprus, citizens are confronting those who have the responsibility for protecting the public but are guilty of willful negligence. Please see the letter below. Many government officials and those working for the telecom industry have known for years that exposure to EMR from wireless devices is dangerous, they have been sent reports from experts, have been petitioned through commissions, and have done nothing. In Cyprus people are accusing some officials with licensing 5G knowing it, in all likelihood, to be dangerous. 
This group’s website is available in English at  
Here are 2 documents that accompanied the letter: 
Individual charge to the Attorney General
“For all the above reasons I believe that I have the right to demand from the relevant authorities to begin a criminal investigation against the above public officials and/or persons, because their actions and/or omissions are either directly or indirectly endangering not only my own life and health but also my fellow citizen’s lives and health.” 

Stop5G European Alliance: Thousands demonstrate in front of the International Agency for Research on Cancer Headquarters in Lyon, France calling for the ”urgent reclassification” of wireless radiation as a carcinogen.  Sept. 20th, 2020 | Report from Oasisana
“Great success for the international event promoted in Lyon (France) with the European Stop 5G Alliance: thousands of citizens from different countries gathered this morning in front of  the headquarters of IARC, the International Agency for Research on Cancer belonging to the WHO World Health Organization. It is the agency responsible for the reclassification of the carcinogenesis of electrosmog, radio frequency non-ionizing waves. From all, the same request: “no conflicts of interest in scientific research, the reclassification of cancer from electrosmog is urgently needed ”.

Leaked Memo From Orange Shows Employees Have 5G Reservations  Sept. 21st, 2020 | Environmental Health Trust
“According to Bloomberg news, leaked memos from a group of Orange (Telecom) employees urge the telecom company Orange to halt its plans for 5G on the grounds of health fears as well as saying that it would not be profitable for the operator. Orange S.A., formerly France Télécom S.A., is a French multinational telecommunications corporation.

“A group of employees of Orange SA called repeatedly for management to scrap the rollout of 5G services in memos circulated to colleagues on the Plazza social media platform. The memos, issued in October 2019 and in May of this year, said the technology will be unprofitable and will damage the environment, according to three people familiar with their content.”

Sept. 2020 | Environmental Health Trust  “The environmental impact induced by digital uses continues to increase, and, with the explosion of uses, the gains expected by the falsely called ‘dematerialization’ have not been demonstrated. …In addition, the deployment of 5G will exponentially accelerate the exploitation of non-renewable natural resources, pollution due to the extraction of rare metals, and the generation of a quantity of waste that can hardly be recycled. At present, a very small number of mobile phones in circulation and on sale are compatible with 5G. The deployment of this mobile network will therefore involve the renewal of a large part of the equipment, further increasing the ecological footprint and the weight of waste, in an attempt to benefit from a technological innovation whose usefulness remains to be demonstrated. A preliminary environmental impact study on 5G is therefore necessary before considering its deployment.”

Mumbai   Sept. 26th, 2020 | Prakash Munshi 
With much appreciation to Prakash Munshi for submitting this post to mark the September 26th Global 5G Protest Day.
“We are concerned about EMF radiation in general not only 5G. We have lost many citizens- friends known to us who were staying close to Mobile Tower antennae & were receiving the killer EMF Radiation from the Antennae 24 x 7.
We have to inform the citizens on what is 5G and how it will affect our health and privacy. The Radiation at these high levels are used only by military in warfare.”

Part One of Surveillance Capitalism at the Limits to Economic Growth – Social Controls through Digital Infrastructures have Bio-Physical Limits. Feb. 7th, 2020 | Brian Davey | Credo Economics
“The lives that we thought of as private are being turned into data about us – like the questions we ask the search engines, like where we are and have been from mobile phone and geolocation data that we use. Then there is information that we machine translate. There is information about us from conversations ‘overheard’ by ‘Cortana’ and ‘Alexa’, snippets of conversation overheard by smart TVs – ‘please pass the salt, we’re out of laundry detergent, I’m pregnant, let’s buy a new car, we’re going to the movies now, I have a rare disease, she wants a divorce, he needs a new lunch box’. These snippets of communication overheard by smart machines are sent back to companies that lead in voice recognition to be sold on to third parties for whatever use they have for the information– including companies wanting to market to us…but also insurance companies that want to assess us for risk and the security forces of the state and political parties interested in us as political beings.”

Part Two of Surveillance Capitalism at the Limits to Economic Growth – Social Controls through Digital Infrastructures have Bio-Physical Limits. Feb. 7thm 2020 | Brian Davey | Credo Economics
“In the today’s world one form of trying to shape the future beyond an appropriate scale is described by environmentalists with the words ‘overshoot and collapse’. Overshoot is the hubris of using a huge volume of resources with an unsustainable impact on the planet’s ecological carrying capacity – eventually leading to a collapse, which is an ecological and societal ‘Nemesis’.
Zuboff appears to be almost entirely oblivious to the fact that the context of the surveillance capitalism drama is being played out just as the global economy has reached and overshot the bio-physical limits of the carrying capacity of the planet…..But these are not parallel crises that are unconnected. Surveillance capitalism is embodied and embedded in a developing technical infrastructure that guzzles energy, most of it leads to carbon emissions which exacerbate the climate crisis even as it depletes the sources of coal, oil and gas – and now lithium, cobalt, nickel and other minerals. These are becoming more expensive to extract – thus undermining the sustainable development of the techno-infrastructure on which the economy increasingly depends.”

“Requests are rising from law enforcement for information on the devices, which can include internet queries, food orders, and overheard conversations.”
“Earlier this month, Amazon said it had received more than 3,000 requests from police for user data in the first half of this year, and complied almost 2,000 times. That was a 72 percent increase in requests from the same period in 2016, when Amazon first disclosed the data, and a 24 percent jump in the past year alone.

 For Your Listening Pleasure 5G Do Not Consent (with French subtitles)  Mar. 14th, 2020 | Jalalo  Macintyre
Video song by Jalalo that is quite uplifting and inspiring.

“Stopp 5G” – Song (German)  May 31st, 2019

This next song, “No Amount of Evidence (will ever persuade an idiot),” is really well done and humorous which is why it’s included in the update. But admittedly, it’s also quite polarizing — something to be conscious about as we navigate these intensely challenging times we are facing as a species.
Different perspectives make up the fabric of life. Our humanity and possibly our future lie in how we navigate and resolve these potential points of conflict. 

To insist on one viewpoint or another and to demean others who don’t share our beliefs can leave us mired in two dimensional narratives that ignore myriad layers, complexities, and nuances. If we remain locked into this dualistic paradigm (could that be the metaphorical “lockdown” we find ourselves in now?) we risk continuing to perpetuate the kind of thinking that has brought us to the precipice of extinction, aligning with one or another “camp” of prefabricated  thinking and sweeping generalizations spread via truncated narratives. 

But if we welcome complexity, cross currents, undertow, and even debris that all affect how each wave of reality touches the shores of existence at any given point in time and space; if we keep our hearts open recognizing that all human-apprehended truth is on a path and hasn’t reached its final destination; If we can find solace and compassion in the sometimes very uncomfortable crosscurrents of conflicting views; and most of all, if we tune deeply into our own inner guidance —  we may just find new treasures arising mysteriously from out of the sacred space we hold for embracing differences. Yes, time is of the essence, and so these considerations are all the more crucial now. 

And now, the song!
