An Electronic Silent Spring

April, 2015 Newsletter from Katie Singer

1. I've just returned from speaking about EMR-related issues in Boulder, Colorado and Eugene, Oregon. In both cities, I gave a talk called "Aiming to First Do No Harm: The Education of Electronics Users." http://www.electronicsilentspring.com/aiming-to-first-do-no-harm/

It describes electronic interference commonly experienced by people with medical implants. (According to NIH, in 2000, 8-10% of the American population had an implant--i.e. a cardiac pacemaker, insulin pump or deep brain stimulator.) Walking through metal detectors, driving a Prius, being near "smart" meters...can reprogram or shut off some medical implants. Please have a listen to this talk.

2. In Eugene, I began learning about the Community Rights Movement. More than 200 communities in nine states have passed legally-binding and locally-enforceable community rights laws that

* ban harmful but currently legal corporate activities like fracking, dumping sludge on farmland, unsustainable energy development, water withdrawal for bottling, etc.;

* strip corporations of all of their constitutional "rights;"

* restore a municipality's right to govern itself and protect its public health and environment.

Could your town apply Community Rights ordinances around "smart" meters and telecommunications equipment? YES...with a public vote at the ballot box.

Over the past 200 years, corporations have been granted "rights" that enable them to poison our water and air, pay their workers unreasonably low wages, run over small farmers' livelihoods with factory farms and emit harmful radiation legally.

Corporations now have "First Amendment free speech rights." Telecom corporations claim, for example, that a municipality cannot require them to post SAR labeling on mobile devices, because that would violate their right not to speak about a product's potential harms.

Community Rights ordinances nullify existing state, federal and corporate trade-treaty pre-emption laws when those laws violate our inherent right of local self-governance. (Imagine the public relations when corporations challenge this in court.)

Perhaps a community could declare that its neighborhoods shall have the authority to vote no on any industrial, residential or commercial project proposed by a corporation. A community could create an ordinance banning Wi-Fi in schools, "smart" meters, distributed antenna systems, new cell towers.

What's the catch? Your community would have to reach majority rule at the ballot box; or your city or county councilors would have to pass such an ordinance. (And so, public education continues.)

For more info, visit www.CommunityRightsPDX.org, www.democracythemepark.org, www.CELDF.org and 'Community Rights TV' on Youtube. Here's a recent talk from Community Rights leader Paul Cienfuegos: http://www.electronicsilentspring.com/civil-rights-cell-tower-corporations/
