Company removes banners

A CAMPAIGNING mum says she will paint her fence with slogans after her protest banners were removed.

Karen Kelly, 47, of Manor Crescent, off Akers Way, Moredon, wants a mobile phone mast moved from outside her home.

On Tuesday Mrs Kelly and other local protesters put banners up around the 45m O2 mast, which has not yet gone live.

But yesterday she returned home from shopping at lunchtime to see the banners being taken down and put into a van by a workman from the company.

"When we put them up I thought they might get pulled down by children," she said. "But I was amazed when I saw them being taken down. It must have touched a nerve."

Mrs Kelly is worried about the health risks of having a mast so near her home. She has two children Summer, eight, and Morgan, 12. Morgan has an auto-immune condition which makes him susceptible to disease.

Now she says she is going to put up more banners in a bid to keep her campaign going.

A spokeswoman for O2 confirmed the banners had been taken down but said the mast was a key part of the network in Swindon and that most people accepted you cannot have mobile phones without having masts.

The firm has said it has to rely on current research, which says there are no health risks.

Save us from 'killer' police radio masts

Some of you will have seen the excellent article in the Daily Express today, Mon 18th (Full-page article, p.13) entitled "Save us from 'killer' police radio masts" ("Protests grow nationwide over beams being linked to cancer").

Written by Tom Whitehead, this article was prompted by a lady from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales - a site of major civil unrest on the Tetra front comparable to Cornwall and, along with Cornwall, the only other place in England that Airwave will admit to having difficulties getting enough masts up to get coverage.

The 'Opinion' column on page 10 of the same issue says:

"We need facts on masts"

"We are told by the Government that there is no official scientific research to suggest Tetra masts are harmful but we have been falsely reassured by governments before - remember BSE. It is claimed the masts cause serious - and even fatal - conditions including headaches, sleeplessness, rashes, diziness, nausea and cancer. We should have research to establish their safety now, rather than count the cost years down the line."

The lady that prompted Tom Whitehead's article, who was at a meeting in Wales that I addressed recently, phoned to tell me that she was told by the Express that if they received enough correspondence on this they would run a campaign on it. Let's not miss this golden opportunity!

Write to:
expressletters@express.co.uk

(Be sure to include your address & tel no - otherwise they won't accept your letter)

Refer to the above article, which highlights various concerns of anti-Tetra campaigners in a pretty sympathetic way (The 'disclaimers' by the NRPB, Gov't and mmO2 at the end look pretty pathetic).

Article includes info from an anonymous policeman, who "estimated that half the officers using the radios are still concerned about health risks", it also refers to death of officer Neil Dring and to complaints from 177 officers in Lancashire. Also gives cases from all over the country of symptoms and concerned people.

A good crop of letters on this subject could well prompt a national campaign by a major national daily - let's go for it!

In 1970, Congress created the EPA on the theory that only a national agency insulated from accountability to voters could produce the scientifically grounded pollution rules needed to save a careless public from its own filth. But David Schoenbrod, former Natural Resources Defense Council senior attorney, has come to the conclusion that letting the EPA dictate to the nation is a mistake. In his new book, Prof. Schoenbrod argues that the EPA is a musclebound agency that, under Democrats and Republicans alike, delays good rules, imposes bad ones, and is so massive, mighty, and remote that it does unnecessary damage to our society.

Die Grünen rüsten sich

Zur Entscheidung der Grünen, dem Aufbau eines europäischen Raketenabwehrsystems zuzustimmen, erklärt Wolfgang Gehrcke, außenpolitischer Sprecher des Parteivorstandes:

Die Grünen stimmen dem Aufbau eines europäischen "Raketenabwehrsystems" (MEADS) zu, das gemeinsam mit Italien und den USA entwickelt werden soll, obwohl sie eigentlich dagegen sind, wie Parteivorsitzender Bütikofer erklärt. Allein der deutsche Anteil an der Entwicklung dieses Rüstungsprojektes beträgt über 800 Millionen Euro. Fachleute veranschlagen die tatsächliche Summe auf das Dreifache.

MEADS bringt für Europa keine zusätzliche Sicherheit, sondern muss als Bestandteil der US-Planung eines Raketenabwehrsystems gewertet werden, mit dem Rückungskontrollverträge ausgehebelt werden.

Steigende Rüstungsexporte und Waffenlieferungen in den Nahen Osten, windelweiche Haltung des grünen Außenministers zum Kanzlerwunsch nach Aufhebung des Waffenembargos gegenüber China und neue Rüstungsgroßprojekte wie das MEADS-System die Grünen tragen die Militarisierung der deutschen Politik inzwischen nahezu ohne Ausnahme mit. Ihre Bauchschmerzen werden dabei mehr und mehr zum Phantomschmerz.

The new industrialists: They work for the government, not you

04/19/05

The overwhelming body of government work is unnecessary. There hasn't been a legitimate federal military action since The War of 1812 and that may have been unnecessary, also. The closest was the attack on Pearl Harbor that ushered us into World War II but today historians accept that we provoked the Japanese into attacking us through policies that were designed to do just that. We're all paying for this, of course, but not just through taxes to support these bureaucrats, etc. If the damage was confined to their salaries, it might be tolerable. I'd almost be willing to have the government pay their salaries and benefits but it's the effects of their jobs that bother me...

War crimes - have we learned anything?

04/18/05

You can't seem to turn the television news on at present without seeing black-and-white pictures of past horrors - Buchenwald last week, Belsen this, and Hiroshima and Nagasaki still to come in August. There was a time when we thought that killing on an industrial scale might be a thing of the past; but, depressingly, the pictures are no longer just in black and white nowadays.

It may be 32 years since General Augusto Pinochet's men began killing left-wingers in Chile, and 30 since the Khmer Rouge arrived in Phnom Penh to force the entire population out into the killing fields. But it's only 11 years since Rwanda, and 10 since the Bosnian Serb general, Ratko Mladic, ordered the murder of every male Muslim in Srebrenica. And in Darfur people are dying right now...

When media dogs don't bark

04/18/05

In the mysterious case of why mainstream news outlets aren't more aggressive in challenging corporate power large and small, Sherlock Holmes would probably conclude that the most profound clues are to be found when the media dogs don't bark. We hear the least about the most pervasive media filtration -- when thoughts go nowhere because journalists have been made to understand the limits of their profession in the present day. Advertising is part of the corporatized atmosphere that sucks the oxygen out of the newsrooms. The sound of an idea being smothered in its crib doesn't rise to the decibels of a bark or even a whimper. And media consumers don't know what they're missing...

Marla Ruzicka: The senseless death of the woman who fought George Bush

04/19/05

She looked like she should be surfing on a beach in California but Marla Ruzicka was drawn instead to Iraq and her self-appointed task of helping the civilian victims of George Bush's war. She was 28 years old and had been a peace activist since a young age. She went to Baghdad as the head of her own charity, determined to find out how many Iraqis had been killed or injured by US forces and get compensation for survivors.

At the weekend, the dedication that had taken Marla from her home in San Francisco to the war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq, led to her death. .... Some may question why Marla's death has received such extensive coverage, given that tens of thousands of civilians have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. She, for one would certainly had preferred that those victims and the people she was trying to help were the front page story. Yet, in the world in which she worked

Marla was undoubtedly exceptional. She recognised the most effective way for her to get things done was not simply to campaign as a peace activist but to focus on humanitarian efforts. Her overwhelming focus was always the victims...

Iraq -- Humanitarian Workers' Deaths Remind FCNL of Costs of U.S. War and Occupation

The violent death of humanitarian aid workers Marla Ruzicka and Faiz Ali Salim in a suicide bombing in Iraq this past weekend struck many of us with grief because she has been a regular visitor to the FCNL office in Washington. The organization she founded, the Campaign for Innocent Victims of Conflict (CIVIC), plays an important role in working to obtain U.S. government recognition of and financial support for the survivors of civilians killed or injured in armed conflict. We saw first-hand her commitment to the Iraqi people because FCNL played a small role in supporting Marla’s work as she began her project by serving as the fiscal agent for some of those donating to her projects.

Her death, and the death of her Iraqi colleague, Faiz Ali Salim (the father of a 2-month-old child), remind all of us of the violence that is continuing unabated in Iraq. Press reports suggest that at least 17 other Iraqis and 3 U.S. troops were killed on the same day as Marla and Faiz. Some reports suggest that most Iraqi deaths are simply uncounted. The U.S. military has refused since the start of the war to count Iraqi casualties.

Marla wouldn't stand for it. She fearlessly stood with the Iraqi's who had not voice, no power, no prospect of justice. She told me, "Joe, when I looked into their eyes, I just couldn't walk away and do nothing." Marla did something. She went straight to the U.S. authorities in Iraq and grabbed them by their epaulets and said, "You have a responsibility, and I'm not going to let go until you do something." She just wouldn't let the survivors of violent conflict go unnoticed, and she wouldn't allow the authorities to claim they didn't know what happened to individual people. She informed them face to face. And her Iraqi colleague Faiz exercised extraordinary courage in taking her where she needed to go, despite the terrible risks.

The headlines in the United States focus on the political dynamics and the negotiations to form the new government. Deaths are usually mentioned only if they are the deaths of U.S. nationals. But the reality for many Iraqis is that the situation on the ground is getting worse, not better, day by day (the FCNL Washington Newsletter that should be arriving in your mailboxes this week includes a personal account of what conditions on-the-ground in Iraq are like today).

The story of on-the-ground conditions in Iraq, however, is still not getting through to your elected leaders in Washington. This week, probably either late Tuesday or Wednesday, the U.S. Senate will almost certainly vote to approve tens of billions of dollars in additional funding for the war and occupation of Iraq. More and more senators are telling us that they believe the FCNL proposal that the Congress declare that the U.S. has no imperial intentions in Iraq is an important way to advance the debate on U.S. policy for Iraq. But we are still a long way from winning passage of an amendment affirming that it is the U.S. intention to withdraw all military troops and bases from Iraq.

I’m including at the bottom of this email links to the web site for Marla’s group, CIVIC, and to a very good statement released by Senator Patrick Leahy, who was a strong supporter of Marla’s work. Here at FCNL we will continue to honor the work of Marla and the tens of thousands of others who have died in the Iraq war and occupation by continuing to press Congress to declare that the U.S. has no imperial ambitions in Iraq. As I go into congressional offices, I’ll stop outside the door to silently remind myself – Marla, presente – before I go inside to engage congressional staff and members of Congress.

Ruzicka: US kept secret tally of Iraqi civilian deaths

04/20/05

A week before she was killed by a suicide bomber, humanitarian worker Marla Ruzicka forced military commanders to admit they did keep records of Iraqi civilians killed by US forces.Tommy Franks, the former head of US Central Command, famously said the US army 'don't do body counts,' despite a requirement to do so by the Geneva Conventions. But in an essay Ms Ruzicka wrote a week before her death on Saturday and published yesterday, the 28-year-old revealed that a Brigadier General told her it was 'standard operating procedure' for US troops to file a report when they shoot a non-combatant. She obtained figures for the number of civilians killed in Baghdad between 28 February and 5 April, and discovered that 29 had been killed in firefights involving US forces and insurgents...

HEALTH CAN BE A KEY MAST ISSUE

11:00 - 18 April 2005

I Refer to The Bath Chronicle's articles of April 14 about mobile phone masts. Geoff Webber, B &NES' planning control manager quoted the Government's planning policy guidance on telecommunication (PPG8) paragraph 30 saying that health concerns cannot to be considered when determining mobile phone mast planning applications. However, Mr Webber failed to mention that Government guidance (paragraph 29) also states: "Health considerations and public concern can in principle be material considerations in determining applications for planning permission... It is for the decision maker (usually the local planning authority) to determine what weight to attach to such considerations in any particular case."

So the guidance is at best ambiguous but does allow for health considerations to be taken into account. However, when local council tax payers object to being bombarded with harmful electro magnetic radiation from masts sited on their doorstep, planning authorities conveniently ignore paragraph 29 of the Government guidance and side with the mobile phone operators.

I should point out that independent research is constantly highlighting the damaging effects of the low level electro magnetic radiation emissions pulsing from these masts. Unsurprisingly, it is only the vested interest of Government and mobile phone operator funded research that appears to try and prove low risk to health. Some research suggests that the current (ICNIRP) Government guidelines for mast emissions are 9,000 times too high. The guidelines were adopted by government 13 years ago in the technology's infancy.

They were approved following testing on animals subjected to 20 minutes of this electro magnetic radiation. People living in the vicinity of mobile phone masts are currently subjected to this radiation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Unsurprisingly, ill health clusters are appearing around these masts.

Federal ‘Marshall Plan’ Needed to Protect Children’s Health and Schools

Federal ‘Marshall Plan’ Needed to Protect Children’s Health and Schools, Groups Say; 'National Healthy Schools Day' April 18

4/18/2005 10:44:00 AM

To: National Desk, Health and Education Reporters

Contact: Claire Barnett of the Healthy Schools Network, 212-482-0204, or Sabrina Jones of the American Public Health Association, 202-777-2509

WASHINGTON, April 18 /U.S. Newswire/ -- School building environmental problems are eroding children’s health and test scores. Parent, public health, environment, and education groups today urged the White House and federal agencies to develop a “ Marshall Plan” to identify and to promote solutions to protect the nation’s schools and the health and safety of schoolchildren. This critical issue deserves an action plan that involves federal awareness and intervention, the groups say.

Each day 54 million schoolchildren and six million adults -— 20 percent of the entire U.S. population -— enter our nation’s school buildings. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, one-half of the nation’s schools have problems with indoor air quality, as well as problems with lead, radon, asbestos, chemical spills, molds, and poor lighting.

Healthy Schools Network Executive Director Claire Barnett said, “Today is another un-Healthy School Day, with 54 million children in schools with serious environmental problems that erode children’s health. This is not just a local issue. This is America’s largest, single unaddressed public health problem facing the federal agencies.”

According to the groups, many school facilities have been poorly maintained and thousands of our nation’s schools remain severely overcrowded. These problems contribute to absenteeism, student medication use, learning difficulties, sick building syndrome, staff turnover, and greater liability for school districts.

American Public Health Association’s Executive Director Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP: "It is unconscionable that millions of our nation's children, many of them from low-income households, are surrounded daily by environmental health hazards such as unsafe indoor air, chemicals, asbestos and mold. This is a problem that should be addressed swiftly and thoroughly at the federal level. Adults expect to work in safe buildings, why not children?”
