Words and Actions: Expose the bullying nature of the Operators and the indifference of the government to the justifiable health concerns of the general public

To bring the controversial nature of mast/phone emissions more firmly into the public eye - we could do with a platform that has the potential of involving the masses.

Brian Haw, the anti-war protestor has held a 24 hour vigil outside Parliament for four years. The new laws to restrict protest will NOT apply to him because he has been there for a long time - and most importantly BEFORE tomorrow - lst August when the laws come into force.

Anyone who starts a continuous demonstration TODAY can lawfully hold their non-stop protest in Parliament Square. This means that someone would always have to be present to hold placards, etc. (If this demo. is done in the name of a group, I presume that people would be able to come and go to provide the necessary "cover"- but that the chosen site must never be devoid of somebody.) The Laws that come into force on Monday, lst August, make it an offence to demonstrate in a designated area if "when the demonstration starts", the police have not given authorisation. (Mr. Haw argued in the High Court that the law did not apply to him because it was not in force when his demonstration started.) The Government was refused permission to appeal. (Page 10, Daily Telegraph, July 30th)

Obviously, because of our Charity status, Mast Sanity's name could not be used - but there just might be one or two reasonable people who would hope to gain some publicity and even expose the bullying nature of the Operators and the indifference of the government to the justifiable health concerns of the general public and would be willing to start the whole thing going.

Naturally, there is concern for Londoners since the bombings, and one's own safety has to be taken into account, so it would be understandable if no-one is keen to go!! I would be there myself, but we live on the South Coast and it's just too difficult right now.

Placards could be made interesting, black balloons could be a possibility - and remember poppies for our fallen service men? Well, what about a flower that could have significance for all those who have become ill as a result of radiation..... Bet others have even better ideas!!! Let's hear them - but remember - tomorrow is too late.

Kind regards, Vivienne B.

Handys als Kontrollinstrumente

Soziologe: Handys als Kontrollinstrumente

Professor Burkart beklagt "Verwahrlosung der Kommunikation"

Handys werden nach Ansicht eines Sozialwissenschaftlers häufig als Kontrollinstrument eingesetzt. "Es wird zwar akzeptiert, wenn jemand trotz Mobiltelefons nicht erreichbar ist - das ist dem anderen gegenüber aber begründungspflichtig", sagte der Lüneburger Universitäts-Professor Günter Burkart. Dies gelte vor allem bei Paaren, Eltern und Kindern oder bestimmten beruflichen Beziehungen.

30.07.2005

"Wer weiß, dass er erklären muss, warum er nicht erreichbar ist, der muss sich schon gut überlegen, ob er sein Handy in bestimmten Situationen abschaltet", sagte Burkart. "Das Handy hat inzwischen eine sehr starke Kontrollfunktion, die in Zukunft wahrscheinlich noch zunehmen wird."

Inzwischen könnten es sich im beruflichen Bereich fast nur noch Menschen in leitenden Positionen leisten, nicht immer erreichbar zu sein. "Sie können eine Art Filter vor ihre persönliche Erreichbarkeit setzen, haben zum Beispiel eine Sekretärin", sagte Burkart. Wer jedoch kein Handy besitzt, weil er etwa zu arm ist, der gelte als gesellschaftlicher Außenseiter. "Jugendliche zum Beispiel verabreden sich abends oft nicht mehr im Voraus, sondern spontan über die Mobiltelefone - wer eines hat, ist dabei, und die anderen halt nicht", sagte Burkart.

"Hemmungsloser und zu laut"

Generell sei seit der starken Verbreitung von Handys eine "Verwahrlosung der öffentlichen Kommunikation" zu beobachten, meinte der Sozialwissenschaftler. "Die Leute reden hemmungsloser in der Öffentlichkeit, sie reden zu laut, sie lassen ihre Klingeltöne oder Popsongs lauter und länger abspielen als nötig", kritisierte Burkart. "Am Handy konzentriert man sich auf den Gesprächspartner am anderen Telefonende und schirmt sich quasi ab, indem man die anderen Menschen ausblendet aus der momentanen Realität. Das führt dazu, dass man lauter spricht als nötig."

Telekommunikation: Internationale Petition gegen Vorratsdatenspeicherung (01.08.05)

In dieser Woche startet eine internationale Petition gegen die Pläne einer europäischen Vorratsdatenspeicherung. Initiatoren sind die Bürgerrechtsgruppe European Digital Rights (EDRi) und der Internetserviceprovider "XS4ALL". Die Kritik: Eine Vorratsdatenspeicherung führe zur Überwachung von 450 Millionen Menschen alleine in der EU, ohne dass irgendein Vorwurf gegen sie vorläge. Der Vorschlag von Justizministern und EU-Kommission zur Vorratsdatenspeicherung bedeute demnach eine Verpflichtung von Telefongesellschaften und Internetprovidern, die Verbindungsdaten von Telefonaten, SMS, Internet- und E-Mailverkehr ihrer Kunden langfristig zu speichern.

"Each man's death diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind."

By Liaquat Ali Khan

Civilian fatalities in Muslim cities must be tolerated, we are told, because no war is clean in killing. But terrorists are different. They have no other intention but to terrorize our civilians and cities. Hence we are good and they are evil, the logic goes, because they have no moral claim to violence as we do.

Govt urged to ban mobile phone towers near schools

Sunday July 31st 2005, 6:38 pm

From Tower Sanity in Sydney Australia:

Concerned parents and citizens

Please find attached today’s online ABC News “Govt urged to ban mobile phone towers near schools” and motion/action item (that was slightly amended at the conference yesterday) that was presented and wonderfully debated for a good 30 minutes and supported almost unanimously.

Well done and thanks to St George Girls’ High school parent, Kim!

ABC News:

Govt urged to ban mobile phone towers near schools

The Parents and Citizens Federation of New South Wales (PCF) says mobile phone towers pose a possible threat to the health of school children and should be located at least 300 metres away from schools.

The PCF is holding its annual general meeting this weekend and wants the Federal Government to intervene on the issue.

PCF spokesman David Giblin says no new towers should be built near schools and existing ones should also be removed.

“What we’re trying to do with mobile phone towers is to avoid any potential harm to school students by the siting of those towers close to schools,” he said.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200507/s1426425.htm

AND:

Motion to NSW Federation of P&C Associations 2005 annual conference

That Federation requests the NSW Department of Education and Training to:

1\ adopt a policy regarding the siting of mobile phone towers/mobile base stations/telecommunications facilities within school grounds and close to schools, and that policy is to:
a\ oppose the siting of such facilities within the school grounds;
b\ oppose the siting of such facilities within 300m of the school to ensure that the peak intensity of electromagnetic radiation does not fall anywhere on the school grounds;
c\ be advised to all schools;
d\ be publicised on the DET website.

2\ advise principals:
a\ to pass on information to the school community (teaching staff, administration staff, parents and carers of pupils, and school education director) when the principal is notified by a carrier of a proposal for a mobile phone tower/mobile base station/telecommunications facility within or close to the school.
b\ to expect that such letters of notification to principals will appear to be junk mail. Eg
i\ The letter will be in a plain envelope
ii\ The envelope may have the words “To the resident” and/or “Important Information: Proposed telecommunications facility in your local area”
iii\ The letter may be addressed “To the Householders”
c\ to not rely on carriers to adequately notify the school community (because they are under no obligation to do so)
d\ to be aware of and support the school community’s opinion when participating in the consultation process.

3\ create and publish an electronic database of schools close to (within 300m of) mobile phone towers/mobile base stations/telecommunications facilities.

We have to take a stand

Jul 29 2005

By Rob Devey, Chester Chronicle

CAMPAIGNERS incensed by decisions to allow mobile phone masts near family homes have issued a call to arms.

Residents in Westminster Park and Vicars Cross have joined forces to demand a change in the law amid health fears.

They are calling on campaigners throughout Cheshire to join their new group and participate in a series of large-scale protest marches in Chester.

It is hoped the demonstrations will have a domino-effect, spreading nationwide.

The group, yet to be named, met on Wednesday and will also fight individual masts across the county.

Its call to arms comes after Hutchison 3G was granted permission on appeal to erect a mast on Wrexham Road, just 100m north of Ash Grove Farm Nursery.

Chester City Council had refused the scheme.

With their hands tied by the appeal inspector's decision, planners have now allowed a mast near Bunnies Nursery School on land at Chester Rugby Club on Hare Lane.

Livid locals in both areas say enough is enough and are fighting to overturn the decisions.

Chairman of the Westminster Park residents' group and father-of-three Malcolm Harle said: 'The only way to tackle the issue is to change the law so masts have to be, say, 350m from schools, residential areas and hospitals.

'We are trying to organise a demonstration in Chester for all groups throughout the whole of Cheshire.'

This week's meeting was attended by 26 residents, with others on holiday, and sub-committees were formed to co-ordinate the campaign.

The first protest is planned for early September.

Chester MP Christine Russell said she favoured a change in the law whereby local authorities decided on suitable locations for masts.

She said: 'Local authorities already identify sites for things like houses and open spaces so why not phone masts?

'The phone companies would then say how many masts they needed and ask where they could put them.

'If a mast is on Green Belt land to me that's preferable to a site that is upsetting a lot of people.'

Chester City Council planning officer Richard Gore said full planning applications were required for masts taller than 15m.

He said: 'Our criteria is the impact on the residential amenity which is quite subjective.

'Authorities have refused masts because of their proximity to homes before and sometimes it has been upheld.

'But the Government says we cannot refuse permission on health grounds because there is no hard evidence masts are harmful.'

Mast plans thrown out by Waverley

29/07/2005

WAVERLEY Borough Council took a stand against the “relentless march of technology” on Wednesday by throwing out controversial plans for a mobile phone mast in Westland Farm, Shamley Green.

Faced with considerable local opposition and led by chairman, Cllr Richard Worby, (Ewhurst) members of the authority’s area planning sub-committee overturned officers’ recommendations to approve the Orange proposal and instead unanimously rejected it.

Cllr Worby accepted there was probably a case for infill masts where there was a total failure to receive a signal but he pointed out the Westland Farm mast would be for third generation or 3G mobile phone technology, which allows for video communication, music downloads and the like. “I do wonder whether we need to sacrifice the countryside so people can have some very silly toys – they are not necessary,” he said.

“I am dead against allowing this relentless march of technology, much of it pointless, to destroy all we hold dear.”

Orange had rejected claims that it had failed to adequately explore more suitable alternative sites for the mast, insisting it could not go along with suggestions that it could share a mast already approved at Rooks Hill in Bramley.

The phone company claimed that this mast would not link up with two other masts it had been planning in the area.

However, Wednesday’s meeting was told that permission for both of these masts had been turned down so there are no other masts for it to link up with.

Both Bramley and Wonersh Parish Councils are opposed to the Westland Farm mast and the borough council had received 79 letters of objection from local residents.

Bramley resident, Patrick Molyneux, addressed the meeting on behalf of the objectors with a hard-hitting attack on the plan, covering both the adverse environmental impact he argued the mast would have, and the perceived health fears.

“The mast triangulates three schools, over-towers ancient woodland, the Downs Link, Cranleigh Waters, the old Wey & Arun Canal and the east/west path between Bramley and Shamley,” he said.

Mr Molyneux pointed out that there are children (living in the local area) who would fall within the exclusion zone recommended by experts and mandated in both the USA and parts of Europe.

He explained that the mast could also threaten a roosting and feeding site for bats, which are a protected species.

“This is another piecemeal application with no attempt to create a coherent strategy for these parishes or explanation of how this fits within a strategy for the five 3G operators, let alone just Orange,” he concluded.

The lack of an overall mobile phone mast plan for the area is a regular complaint of councillors and was again raised during the debate.

One of the major causes of concern for people living close to mast is the perceived associated health risks associated with radiation emitted from the mast.

Although the Government has said these are non-existent, it does allow councils to refuse mast plans if people have a genuine fear.

Cllr David Inman (Chiddingfold & Dunsfold) told the meeting.
“The main worry with all these masts is are we going to find later on in life that they have damaged children?”

O2 boss: 'We didn't do a proper consultation'

THE chief of mobile phone giant O2 has admitted his firm failed to consult Harlow residents properly over controversial plans to erect a mast near their homes.

Harlow MP Bill Rammell wrote to O2 chief executive Peter Erskine to ask why more people were not told about an application to site a 12.5m (41ft) mast in the grounds of the Territorial Army centre, in Old Harlow.

Residents in Bury Road, St John's Road and Old Road complained to Mr Rammell that neither they, TA centre users nor nearby Harlowbury Primary were properly informed of the application, which was refused by council officers in May.

Mr Rammell has since received a letter from Mr Erskine acknowledging 02's failure to consult was an "oversight" and not in line with the company's standard practices. He also said he has instructed the company to engage in sufficient consultation in the future.

Mr Erskine's comments came as O2 community liaison officer Jim Stevenson confirmed the company is likely to appeal against the planning refusal.

He said an appeal would only be lodged after a meeting with Mr Rammell and other phone companies in September to discuss how to improve the consultation process locally.

Mr Rammell said that although he was satisfied with Mr Erskine's response, the company should keep to its word if the appeal goes ahead.

"I am pleased that O2 have admitted that the consultation they undertook on this mast application was not in accordance with their own procedures," he said.

Paul Brooker, of Bury Road, told the Star that despite Mr Erskine's reassurances, he and other residents were discussing plans to form a group to oppose another application.

"The way they went about it last time was so discreet," he said. "People are not told about it so can't respond - it's how these things are passed through."

Neighbour Kylie Jones added: "Part of our objections were for health reasons. We want to nip this in the bud as soon as we can."

Grönland Eis schmilzt schneller als erwartet

Unabhängige Forscher an Bord des Greenpeace-Schiffes Arctic Sunrise haben eine dramatische Entdeckung gemacht: Der Kangerdlugssuaq-Gletscher an der ostgrönländischen Küste hat seine Fließgeschwindigkeit innerhalb eines Jahrzehnts fast verdreifacht. Ein Vergleich mit Satellitenaufnahmen ergab für das Jahr 1996 eine Geschwindigkeit von fünf Kilometern im Jahr. Mittlerweile sind es fast 14 Kilometer - ein Anstieg, der deutlicher als erwartet auf eine Klimaerwärmung hinweist.

BUND kritisiert Wahlprogramme von CDU/CSU und SPD

Der Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland (BUND) hat in Briefen an die Parteivorsitzenden von CDU/CSU und SPD die Wahlprogramme ihrer Parteien scharf kritisiert. Vor allem das "Regierungsprogramm 2005 - 2009" der Union sei ein Plädoyer für weniger Natur- und Umweltschutz.

Sieben Modellregionen schließen sich zum Netzwerk zusammen

Hintergrund für diese Entwicklungen ist die aktuelle rechtliche Situation: Zur Aussaat 2005 ist es in Deutschland erstmals möglich, gentechnisch veränderten Mais in größerem Maßstab anzubauen. Die Risiken für landwirtschaftliche Betriebe und VerbraucherInnen sind nicht absehbar und die gentechnisch veränderten, lebenden Organismen sind, wenn sie einmal in die Natur eingebracht wurden, nicht mehr rückholbar. Das und die Sicherung einer qualitätsbezogenen konventionellen und ökologischen Landwirtschaft waren die Argumente für die Antragsteller der REGIONEN AKTIV- Projekte in den sieben Modellregionen.

Merkelsteuer ohne Mehrwert – Wer Arbeit entlasten will, sollte nicht den Konsum belasten

Dass Unionspolitiker gern auf die Mehrwertsteuer setzen, überrascht wenig. Hat doch die Kohl-Regierung die Mehrwertsteuer gleich dreimal erhöht: 1983 von 13 auf 14 Prozent, 1993 auf 15 Prozent und noch 1998 auf 16 Prozent.
