WE NEED YOU!  A meeting time has been set with Verizon, the City of Oakland and the community. 

Tuesday, September 26th at 6:30 pm
Charles Porter Golden Gate Recreation Center 1075 62nd Street Oakland
(behind the baseball field off San Pablo)  

We will have a presentation on the negative health effects this large cell antenna installation will have on our community. A group question and answer session will follow. 
Golden Gate Community Association took the initiative to  organize a community meeting. Verizon cancelled the first meeting at the last minute.  We met anyway!   Golden Gate Community Association asked to be kept up to date on Verizon's "revisions" to the plan and made  numerous requests to collaborate on the next community meeting.  Here is David Haddock's response, (representing  Verizon).  Instead of a community meeting where a group discussion takes place, he is planning a "neighborhood workshop"!  

"Ms. Yaffe,

Verizon Wireless appreciates your interest in the project.  We are holding the neighborhood workshop to create a collaborative forum for open dialogue with the community.  At that time, community members will have the opportunity to speak directly with Verizon engineers, representatives, and independent 3rd-party experts one-on-one about any questions, concerns or general comments they may have about the proposed facility's design, location, how wireless technology works, electromagnetic emissions from the facility in accordance with FCC guidelines, wireless user trends, etc.

The neighborhood workshop will be held on September 26 @ 6:30 p.m. at 1075 62nd Street, Emeryville, CA 94608 (Golden Gate  Recreation Center).  The notices are being finalized and will be sent out in the next day or so. "

Verizon is attempting to block our access to information and our ability to organize! We have seen it before!  The best response is to show up.

See you there!
