Here's a post from a community member Jenny Miller on the bill SB 649 making it's way through the Appropriations Committee.  Please read, listen  and take action!

an antenna on most light poles, surveillance capabilities handed to the government--all coming our way, unless people in CA start taking action to stop this bill, SB 649. It would take away the authority of local governments to have any say about 5G wireless technology, or the siting of these mini (but ultra powerful) cell towers.
Studies have shown that people who live near cell towers have a much higher death rate than others in their community, and now we ALL will be living near cell towers. 5G is much more harmful than even previous wireless technologies that the studies are based on. In addition to cell tower linked deaths, there are thousands of studies showing a variety of harmful health effects from our current wireless technology (including brain fog, dizziness, nosebleeds, severe head pains, heart pain and palpitations, ringing in the ears, etc.) If implemented, this bill would greatly increase both the occurrence and the severity of these symptoms, incapacitating large numbers of people
One more hearing to go in the assembly (Appropriations) in late August, before it goes to the floor to be voted on. Hundreds of CA cities and dozens of CA counties are opposing the bill but that has not slowed down its passage.
For a better understanding of what's at stake, listen to the interview with Mary Beth Brangan who was interviewed about SB 649 on Tuesday, July 18, on radio station KPFA at 1 pm Pacific Time (Your Own Health and Fitness). You can listen via the internet by going to where the program is available on their archives. Mary Beth and her husband Jim Heddle have done an amazing amount of video work exposing and warning about much corporate environmental destruction, via their organization Ecological Options Network.
If you live in CA please contact Assembly members (starting with you own Assembly member, followed by Gov. Jerry Brown who has veto power, followed by Assembly Appropriations committee members, followed by any other Assembly member you have time to call) and tell them to OPPOSE SB 649. Since CA legislators will be on summer break for a month beginning July 21, the next month is an ideal time to meet with your Assembly person in their district office to let them know why this bill must be stopped.

Mary Beth Brangan, director of the Ecological Options Network, discusses 5G (the fifth generation of wireless technology) and California Senate Bill 649 limiting local control over the next generation of wireless technology and its implications for human and environmental health--and democracy.

Dear Neighbors and Friends after Verizon dropped the application on Arlington Avenue in 2016 they are back!  Many of us in the neighborhood are concerned about the harmful effects of constant exposure to radio-frequency, the undemocratic process of approval, and the nuisance this installation will cause on an already burdened neighborhood. 

If you are concerned and want to hear more please attend this meeting!

Originally, the Verizon consultant was scheduled to come and present their plan but they have cancelled due to what he called, a need "to make minor modifications". They will show the community their plan in September, but now is time for the community to come up with our own plan!

Community Meeting to discuss the Verizon cell installation planned for the Star Bethel Missionary Baptist Church at 5812 San Pablo Avenue at Stanford and Organize.

Please Come!
Tuesday, July 18th at  The Charles Porter Golden Gate Recreation Center, at 1075 62 nd Street ( in back of the baseball field on San Pablo),  6:30 to 8:00 pm.

The installation proposed would include 12 cell antennas  (generating radio frequency 24/7) installed on the roof facing both Stanford and San Pablo Avenue, and a generator including gas lines on the street level located in the garage.  

Facts:  Once a cell installation is approved and installed it is there forever and the telecom company, in this case Verizon,  has rights to the roof. It becomes the # 1 choice for telecom companies looking to add antennas.  (think cell antenna farm, 24/7 EMF)

This installation is less than one hundred feet from residents, places of worship and sanctuary as well as a martial arts studio serving children.

Safety guidelines for antennas and towers are based on The Federal Communications Act  of 1996.  Though many other countries,  and scientists from around the world  recognize the health risks of non-thermal radiation, including cancer,  municipalities in the United States  are not allowed to deny a cell installation based on  health risks.

Telecommunication corporations  pay churches, schools, and businesses to lease their roofs for installations. ( It’s hard to turn away thousands of dollars especially when you don’t realize the impact on health and safety. )

Don’t wait for Verizon to show up on a telephone pole outside your home!
