Good Night, and Good Luck

Center For Individual Freedom
by staff


The newly released film 'Good Night, and Good Luck,' chronicles famed journalist Edward R. Murrow's running duel with Senator Joseph McCarthy during the early 1950s. It presents a compelling message that implores us all to be more engaged and vigilant in defending individual freedom and individual rights. But equally interesting, the film's unusual construction gives us a window into journalism in its golden years, and the contrast with today's all-empty-suit-all-the-time cable wind-bags couldn't be more apparent...

In order to feel secure, are we throwing away our freedom?

San Francisco Chronicle
by Ben Rosenfield


I'm not an NRA member or gun enthusiast. I have never owned a gun and probably never will. But I voted against San Francisco's Proposition H. As a civil-rights attorney, I am alarmed by people's increasing willingness to give up other people's rights. This tendency is at the root of the country's post-Sept. 11 lurch toward fascism, epitomized in Patriot Act provisions that gut First, Fourth, Fifth and 14th Amendment rights, authorizing government intrusions into people's homes and private lives as never before, all in the name of security. Government officials assure us that they only use these awesome powers against the 'bad guys,' ignoring the fundamental principle that bad guys have rights, too, including not being presumed to be bad guys, until proven so in court...

Poll-watching pols now say no on Iraq

Boston Globe
by Joan Vennochi


As go the polls, so go the pols. According to the most recent CNN/Gallup/ USA Today survey, 63 percent of Americans disapprove of the situation in Iraq. In essence, the question Cindy Sheehan tried to ask President Bush in Crawford, Texas, last August -- why did my son die in Iraq? -- is resonating across the country. And so, the time has come for America's politicians to line up bravely behind the public. John Edwards, the former US senator from North Carolina who hopes to run again for president, began a recent Washington Post opinion piece about his vote to authorize war with these words: 'I was wrong.' Also last week, the Republican-controlled Senate voted to press the White House to provide more public information about the course of the war in Iraq. Senator John Kerry spent much of the 2004 presidential campaign trying to rationalize his vote to authorize war with Iraq. Finally, last month Kerry called for troop withdrawal, echoing a demand made last January by Senator Edward M. Kennedy to harsh criticism...

Fool me twice

The American Prospect
by Julia Gronnevet


We can't challenge the fraud in the 2004 election -- but we can keep it from happening again. TAP talks to Mark Crispin Miller, author of Fooled Again: Q: [W]hat would you say the book is about? ... A: [T]he book is a plea for electoral reform based on careful demonstration of the many ways in which the Bush Republicans stole the last presidential election. My aim is not to challenge the outcome, [but] ... to get that scandal to reverberate, to provoke or inspire reform of our whole electoral system, which is a shambles. Q: Voter fraud existed yesterday and today. How do you see today's tactics as different from ones used in the past? A: I'm not arguing that election fraud is something new. ... [W]e've had this problem from the beginning and [from] both parties. The Democrats are hardly innocent. But there is something new that's happened here.

Fool me twice

The Libertarian Enterprise
by L. Neil Smith


Every time one of the 'major' parties comes to power, it passes new laws that violate our self-ownership, threaten us with injury or death if we won't comply, and shred the Bill of Rights. When the other 'major' party replaces the first -- usually by making a lot of noise about how evil and repressive their predecessors were -- they almost never repeal those laws. They simply pass more of their own on top of them. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. ... If you remember nothing else from this essay, remember this: the seemingly unavoidable tragedy of our times is that only those who are presently out of power place any value the Bill of Rights. To those who are in power, it's exactly what it was meant to be: a crippling obstruction to the ambitions of the current regime. Whatever regime that happens to be. Today, George W. Bush chafes in the straitjacket manufactured by the authors of the Bill of Rights, but it is vital never to forget that Bill and Hillary Clinton chafed in their time, as well...

Who made the real windfall profits?

Institute for Liberal Values
by Jim Peron


The US was hit by several hurricanes that shut down a major portion of refining capacity. Now the fact remains that you could be sitting on a sea of oil but if you can only refine a small portion of it prices for the refined product will rise even if the price for the unrefined product is dropping. It's elementary economics thus beyond most politicians. So once again we have a dramatic disparity between the two products. Oil prices have dropped a bit but refined oil in the form of gasoline has dropped almost twice as fast. Not one Congressman or Senator has demanded an investigation to expose the cause. There is no political hay to be made from dropping prices so the politicians go mute...

Urgent: Stop the PATRIOT Act Today

Sen. Kennedy could vote today on reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act. The new version is so bad that several Senators are talking about blocking it and this could be our last chance. Can you call him and tell him you oppose the new PATRIOT Act?

Senator Edward Kennedy Phone: 202-224-4543

I called Congress

After months of negotiations, the Senate could vote on reauthorizing the USA PATRIOT Act today­and you can help block it. The version they're voting on goes even further than the original PATRIOT Act in some places and does not include many needed reforms.

Several senators have expressed concern about the new PATRIOT Act and some, like Russ Feingold (D-WI) and John Sununu (R-NH), are even talking about blocking it with a filibuster.1 This could be our last chance to stop the new and unimproved PATRIOT Act. Your calls at this critical moment could make all the difference. Can you call Sen. Kennedy and tell him that you oppose the PATRIOT Act?

Senator Edward Kennedy Phone: 202-224-4543

Then, please let us know you called by reporting your call here:


Reporting your call will help make this action more effective­this way we can track who's feeling the heat.

The new PATRIOT Act does nothing about some of the biggest problems in the law.2

* The government still isn't required to show a connection between you and a suspected terrorist before they can go through your private records, like medical, library, school, and other records.
* The government is allowed to get "sneak and peek" search warrants from courts to search your home or business and not tell you about it for a month or even much longer. They can do this even in cases having nothing to do with terrorism.

Americans of all political stripes have expressed concern and outrage over the invasive powers in the PATRIOT Act­but some in Congress refuse to listen.

Now that several leaders in Washington have expressed concern over the new draft of the PATRIOT Act, we may actually be able to block it. But they need to hear from you. Your call could make a big difference.

Senator Edward Kennedy Phone: 202-224-4543

Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf die Fischbestände

"Wärmeflüchtlinge": Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf die Fischbestände (18.11.05)

Die Artenschutzorganisation WWF vermutet, dass neben der Überfischung auch der Klimawandel den Fischbeständen in aller Welt zunehmend zu schaffen macht. Ein neuer WWF Report zeige, dass steigende Wassertemperaturen sowohl in den Ozeanen als auch in Flüssen und Seen die Fischbestände gefährdeten. Der Sauerstoffgehalt vieler Gewässer nehme stark ab, so dass insbesondere Süßwasserarten immer häufiger nach Luft schnappen müssten. Ein schlechteres Nahrungsangebot, vermindertes Wachstum und weniger Nachkommen seien die Folgen. Zudem bringe der Klimawandel die Nahrungskette erheblich durcheinander. Mitte der 1990er Jahre seien rund 120.000 Seevögel im Golf von Alaska verhungert, weil ihre Beutefische in größere Tiefen und damit kühleres Wasser abgetaucht gewesen seien. "Der Report passt ins Bild. Der Klimawandel hinterlässt inzwischen fast überall auf dem Planeten seine Spuren", meint Regine Günther vom WWF Deutschland. Die Regierungen seien noch immer zu langsam bei der Bekämp fung des Klimawandels. Der bevorstehende Gipfel in Montreal biete Gelegenheit, das Tempo zu erhöhen.

Damit bleibe den Familien mehr von ihrem selbstverdienten Geld. Insgesamt seien zur Förderung haushaltsnaher Dienstleistungen und der Betreuung fünf Milliarden Euro im Koalitionsvertrag festgeschrieben worden. "Damit wird anerkannt, dass Eltern, die den Lebensunterhalt für ihre Kinder erwerben wollen, dafür Kinderbetreuungskosten in Kauf nehmen", sagte die CDU-Politikerin.

Council takes stand on masts

18 November 2005
Jonathan Marciano

COUNCIL bosses have sent a ringing message demanding more power to defeat mobile phone mast applications.

Haringey Council passed a motion this week designed to send a signal to the government that current policies are failing residents.

The authority wants a change to planning rules to allow councillors to consider the health implications of masts.

Caron Brooks from campaign group Muswell Hill Against the Mast Pages Hill said: "The current process for masts has not worked. Hundreds of people are against phone masts and antennae because of the risks of radiation but their views are ignored.

"We have a great problem in Muswell Hill as every mobile phone operator wants to be present at every single site.

"The part of Barrington Court I can see from my garden is littered with mobile phone equipment. It is frightening to think of the impact on children's health."

At a meeting on Monday councillors heard there is growing concern about masts, particularly near schools, hospitals and residential properties.

The authority cannot refuse mobile phone masts on health grounds and those below 15metres tall are entirely exempt from planning permission.

Councillors demanded more national research into the potential health risks, especially for children.

And they demanded mobile phone giants be required to make a full planning application for any proposals.

Councillor Gideon Bull said: "This is an issue where the government is wrong. We need more power to turn down applications where it is in the better interest of our residents."

Muswell Hill mothers have been campaigning against six Vodafone mobile phone masts on the telephone exchange building in Grand Avenue.

The mast is 200metres from Tetherdown school, Greygates nursery and the Treehouse school in Woodside Avenue.

Since the power went on parents at Tetherdown have complained of children suffering dizziness and headaches.

Campaigns have also raged against masts on Aylmer Road and Barrington Court in Colney Hatch Lane.

Mother-of-two Hannah Beryman, of Grand Avenue, who has a three-year-old, said: "This is not about scaremongering. There is no research saying masts are safe, yet we subject our children to the dangers. Our children are being used as guinea pigs."

The motion, which received cross-party support, calls for Haringey's two members of parliament to lobby for a moratorium on masts near schools, hospitals and houses.

The MPs will also be asked to support any bills in parliament allowing council's to reject mast applications.

Officers will also write to other London boroughs to ask them to follow suit.

US wants to peer into phone service networks

Canton Repository


The federal government wants to peer into your computer communications, forcing companies that provide high-speed access or Internet-based telephone service to design -- or redesign -- their networks to accommodate surveillance. On Monday, the Federal Communications Commission gave broadband Internet service and voice-over-Internet Protocol services, or VoIP, 18 months to ensure that their networks are wiretap-ready. This followed the FCC's formal release of the order in September. Privacy advocates say law enforcement agencies already can wiretap Internet services. They criticize the FCC for overstepping its bounds by requiring businesses to devise systems to the specifications of the federal government...

Protesters' fury at mast ruling

A CONTROVERSIAL plan for a 21ft high mobile phone mast on top of a 22ft high building just feet from back gardens in Harrogate has been given the go-ahead by an independent government inspector.
The decision has been met by anger from residents who had campaigned against the mast at the former Harrogate Leisure Centre on Beech Avenue.

Spokesman for the Oatlands Anti-Mast Group Brian Hulme said: “This decision means back gardens all over the place are at risk from these masts, even when they are almost within touching distance.”

Mr Hulme thanked local residents for the support they had given in objecting to the appeal.

Inspector Jonathan King made his decision to overrule Harrogate Borough Council planners after viewing the site from windows and gardens of Mount Gardens and Halstead Road in the Oatlands area.

His decision means that the O2 (UK) Ltd mobile phone company can now put up the mast.

Pannal ward councillor Fred Willis, who tabled objections to the plan and joined residents on a site visit with the inspector, said the decision was a tremendous blow for people living in the area, but particularly those whose gardens would be overshadowed by the structure.

He said: “It is no comfort to residents that the decision was by a narrow margin. This is another case in Harrogate where local decision making – with input from local residents and councillors – has been overruled."

Mr King said in his judgement a clear benefit of the mast would be removal of three antenna which would remove some of the clutter. This would include two antenna close to houses in Mount Gardens and Halstead Road.

“By a narrow margin, and having regard to the policies of the local plan, I consider that the limited harm from the erection of the taller pole would be outweighed by wider benefits,” added the inspector.

Meanwhile Mr King said that fears for health was not a sufficient reason to reject the new mast, nor was potential interference with television and radio reception.

He said a suggested alternative site had been Hornbeam Business Park but had been told this would not meet technical requirements and he understood it had been discounted.

He agreed it was not an attractive outlook for residents, with the least appealing aspect the clutter of antenna.

Mr King said the plans described the mast as a flagpole.

“But it would not, in my view, appear as such, being rather thicker than a normal flagpole of this height,” he said.

Was man in der U-Bahn so alles mithört

Von Hermann Schlösser

Vor kurzem habe ich in einem Wagen der Linie U2 einem Herrn zugehört, der am Handy Geschäftsgespräche abwickelte. Unter anderem erklärte er seinem unsichtbaren Gesprächspartner, wie der einen schwer kündbaren Mitarbeiter loswerden könne. Er zählte in allen Einzelheiten auf, welche Regelverstöße sich der Betreffende schon habe zuschulden kommen lassen, meinte, da sei längst eine fristlose Entlassung drinnen – und so weiter.

Szenen dieser Art gehören zu den Standarderlebnissen des Alltags: In Bussen, Straßenbahnen, Zügen und U-Bahnen wird man unausgesetzt zum Ohrenzeugen dienstlicher und privater Gespräche – und man wird durchaus nicht gefragt, ob einem derartige Offenbarungen willkommen sind.

Manchen dieser Telefon-Exhibitionisten ist nur zu deutlich anzumerken, dass sie das akustische Bad in der Menge genießen. Sie wollen wahrgenommen werden – wenn es sein muss, mit Gewalt. In schöner Offenheit hat das einmal ein junger Mann ausgedrückt, der in sein Handy brüllte: "Irgendwer muss mir doch zuhören in diesem verdammten Land!"

Der Herr in der U2 dagegen war von anderem Schlag. Er unternahm einiges, um sich gegen unbefugte Zuhörer zu schützen. Natürlich nannte er keine Namen – außer seinem eigenen am Beginn des Gesprächs – und er sprach auch nicht übertrieben laut. Ihm war also offensichtlich an einer gewissen Diskretion gelegen – was sich bei dem heiklen Thema, das er abhandelte, ja von selbst versteht.

Eben deswegen ist es aber umso schwerer zu begreifen, dass ein professioneller, hoch seriös aussehender Herr Themen, die nicht für jedermanns Ohren bestimmt sind, überhaupt in der U-Bahn abhandelt. Fürchtet er sich nicht davor, dass ein Zuhörer sich aus den Informationsbruchstücken den richtigen Reim machen kann, daraufhin den von der Entlassung Bedrohten anruft und sagt: "Ich habe gerade in der U-Bahn erfahren, dass du deinen Job verlierst" ? Hat er kein Gefühl dafür, dass vertrauliche Gespräche dort geführt werden sollten, wo sie hingehören: in geschlossenen Räumen?

Offenbar nicht. Auch er gehört eben zu den Telefonierern neuesten Typs, die ohne Bedenken drauflos reden. Manche tun das, weil sie sich nach Publikum sehnen. Andere scheinen darauf zu vertrauen, dass sie im anonymen Gedränge der Großstadt sozusagen von einer unsichtbaren Wand vor allzu neugierigen Ohren geschützt sind. Vielleicht sollte man ihnen bei Gelegenheit zu verstehen geben, dass dieses Vertrauen nicht ganz berechtigt ist.

Extension of Patriot Act Faces Filibuster

A bipartisan group of senators threatened to derail the reauthorization of the USA Patriot Act today, only hours after Congressional negotiators had seemed on the verge of an agreement to extend and keep largely intact its sweeping antiterrorism powers.


Historic Council Mast Motion

Haringey council on Monday 14th Nov 2005 voted unanimously for the following motion. Both the labour and Lib Dem leaders said the government is wrong on the issue.

Haringey Council Motion


This Council notes:

• Haringey residents' public health concerns about mobile phone masts, with particular concern about the siting of masts near to schools, hospitals and residential properties

• Legislation is weighted in favour of mobile phone companies and Haringey Council currently has little power to act on our residents' concerns

•Masts below 15m are exempt from planning permission

• The Council has established a Scrutiny Review on Mobile Phone masts to identify residents' concerns and produce recommendations designed to address them at the earliest possible opportunity and looks forward to its full report.

This Council believes:

• More national research is required into the potential health risks of mobile phone masts

• Councils like Haringey should be able to take health concerns into account when considering grounds for rejecting mobile phone mast applications.

• Mobile phone companies should be required to make a full planning application for masts of any size and should always be required to provide a statement of the intensity and direction of the signal

This Council resolves:

• To write to Haringey's two Members of Parliament requesting they lobby Ministers for a moratorium on mast sites near to schools, hospitals and residential properties

• To ask our Members of Parliament to support any Bills in Parliament which would mean safer siting of phone masts, including giving Councils clear authority to reject mast applications on local public health grounds

• To write to all other London Boroughs to ask for their support in in pushing for health concerns to be relevant

Villagers fear they're next for phone masts as tests are carried out

FEARS that a mobile phone mast could be erected on council-owned grass verges near Harrogate have been raised with a local councillor.

Reception tests for a potential mast in the Weeton area alongside the Harrogate-Bradford Road have already been carried out. Others are due to follow in the same area.

Residents are now concerned that the tests could be followed by a planning application for a mast on a highway verge after some companies have complained about poor reception in the area.

County Coun Cliff Trotter (Con Pannal and Lower Wharfedale) said local people were worried that tests had been carried out on a grass verge belonging to the county council when they believed these sites would be immune for masts.

After speaking to highway and planning chiefs at North Yorkshire Coun Trotter has been told there is no specific policy as to whether mobile phone masts are allowed on such council land or not.

Coun Trotter said: "I am raising this issue at the North Yorkshire County Council area committee this week.

It is vital that a clear ruling is given on this issue."

"Residents are worried that masts could be erected on verges and they have wider concerns about their closeness to traffic and pedestrians, apart from the impact they would cause in areas of high quality landscape," he added.

Meanwhile, land owners in the Lower Wharfedale area have already been asked if companies can test mobile reception in the area.

One mast 26ft high has already been tested in a roadside verge.

Neben Mobilfunksender: in Hausmannstätten häufen sich die Krebsfälle

18.11.2005 10:53

Neben Sender: Krebs-Häufigkeit auffällig

In Hausmannstätten häufen sich die Krebsfälle. Jetzt wird untersucht, ob ein Zusammenhang mit einem Sender besteht, der bis 1997 aktiv war. Foto: APA ROBERT ENGELE

"Ich habe beobachten können, wie rundherum die Menschen an Krebs erkrankt sind", erzählt Marianne Sabutsch, Anrainerin des Senders auf dem Wählamt in Hausmannstätten.

Mobilfunkanlage. Ihre Familie wohnt 50 Meter neben der Mobilfunkanlage - und ist ebenfalls betroffen. "Zwei unserer drei Kinder hatten direkt gegenüber dem Sender, der damals in der Höhe des ersten Stocks war und waagrecht herüberstrahlte, ihre Zimmer. Und beide bekamen einen Gehirntumor. Unser Sohn ist vor zwei Jahren gestorben, die Tochter hat ein Auge verloren." Das dritte Kind und die Eltern wohnten auf der anderen Seite und blieben verschont.

Schlafstörungen. "Ich selbst habe jahrelang unter Schlafstörungen und einem beständigen Surren im Körper gelitten", berichtet sie. "Aber wir haben die Störquelle im eigenen Haus gesucht. Damals hat mich niemand ernst genommen." 1997 wurde der alte C-Netz-Sender ein paar Meter versetzt und 16 Meter erhöht, erzählen Nachbarn. "Den jetzigen Sender spür ich nicht", betont Marianne Sabutsch - obwohl sie den Unterschied merkt, wenn sie in einer "ruhigen" Gegend auf Urlaub ist.

Häufigkeit. "Von der Häufigkeit der Krebserkrankungen ist das sehr auffällig", ist Hausmannstättens Bürgermeister Günther Köck, selbst überzeugter Handy-Verweigerer, besorgt. "Es sind 13 oder 14 Fälle auf engstem Raum. Wir haben überhaupt das Problem, dass auf 684 Hektar Gemeindegebiet acht oder neun Sender stehen und zwei weitere geplant sind - das ist eine Katastrophe und auch ein großer Wertverlust. Und wir haben fast keine Chance dagegen."

Mediziner. Der ehemalige grüne Gemeinderat Dieter Kurz nahm schließlich Kontakt auf mit dem Salzburger Umweltmediziner Gerd Oberfeld, weil die Gerüchte über die vielen Tumorerkrankungen kein Ende nahmen. Das Ergebnis: Ein offizieller Auftrag der Landessanitätsdirektion, "einen möglichen Zusammenhang mit dem ehemaligen Sender auf dem Wählamt in der Schemmerlstraße zu untersuchen". Eine absolute Premiere, denn eine bevölkerungsbezogene Studie über die Krebshäufigkeit an einem Ort hat es laut Oberfeld in ganz Österreich noch nicht gegeben.

Studiengebiet. Das Studiengebiet umfasst eine Kreisfläche mit einem Radius von 1,2 Kilometern um das Wählamt. In einem ersten Schritt haben die Bewohner Anfang November einen Fragebogen erhalten, der für jede Person, die zwischen 1. November 1984 und 31. Dezember 1997 im Haushalt wohnte, ausgefüllt werden soll. Und der Umweltmediziner hofft auf rege Beteiligung. "Denn je mehr mitmachen, desto größer ist die Aussagekraft der Studie."

Detailstudie. Aufgrund der Angaben werden dann 100 Personen (mit und ohne Krebserkrankung) für eine Detailstudie mit persönlichem Gespräch ausgewählt. Im März wird durch ein simuliertes Signal die Verteilung von Funkstrahlung im Wohnbereich gemessen. Im Juli wird der Bericht der Landessanitätsdirektion und den betroffenen Gemeinden Hausmannstätten und Vasoldsberg übergeben.

Call for council ban on masts near schools and populated areas

Tipperary Today

The County Development Plan should be changed to ensure no mobile phone masts are located within one kilometre of schools, hospitals, churches and other populated places, it was proposed at the November meeting of South Tipperary County Council.

Cllr Mattie McGrath made the proposal saying that people should "err on the side of caution" where the telecommunication masts were concerned.

In his motion to the County Council, Cllr McGrath asked that wording be inserted into the Development Plan saying, "no phone masts/antenna can be located within one kilometre of housing developments, schools, hospitals, churches and amenity/community facilities."

He is also calling for existing masts located near schools, childcare facilities and playgrounds, to be removed immediately.

Explaining his concerns, in a statement to The Nationalist, Cllr McGrath said he based his proposal on recommendations of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.

He said he also took into account scientific evidence that emissions from the masts cause adverse health affects.

"It is the responsibility of the Council to ensure the health and safety of the public is not compromised," Cllr McGrath said.

At the Council meeting Cllr McGrath received support from fellow councillors.

Cllr Pat English said serious health questions remain about mobile phone masts, and Cllr Liam Aherne said nobody wants a mast close to them and to have them close to housing estates is "not on."

Director of Services Seán Keating said that the current guidelines from the Department of the Environment said masts could only be located in villages, towns or near school as a last resort. There are some cases where masts can be located near schools, however, he added.

This is written into the current County Development Plan, but there are discussions taking place about reviewing those guidelines, Mr. Keating said.

He told the meeting that another issue is that many types of developments related to masts and new antennae are exempt from planning and any changes to the County Development Plan would make no difference to them.

Cllr McGrath said other councils had put wording like his suggestion into their plans.

Cllr Liam Aherne pointed out that the masts that are exempt from planning must give the Council written notice four weeks before the mast is erected.

County Manager, Ned O'Connor, said he could understand the motion, but in reality if the councillors are to achieve what they want the only way to is to change the national policy.

He said there were two reasons he suggested that, firstly because if they review their development plan the Department of the Environment will have to be informed and they will not approve a change that is contrary to Department guidelines.

Secondly, he said, if the development plan is changed and planning applications are affect people could go to An B"rd Pleanála who would refer to the national guidelines, not the county plan.

Council Chairman, Derry Foley, proposed that the change in guidelines be put to the department, and when they are changed the development plan can be altered. "We don't have the power to change it here," he said.

"We all want to protect people. Step one should be taken before step two," Cllr Ambrose said, supporting the chairman.

Cllr McGrath agreed to defer his motion for one month to do this.

Mast firm’s link to pension fund

By Jolene Hill

Bromley Newsshopper,
London 17.11.05

PHONE mast campaigners say they are stunned the council has invested more than £6m in Vodafone.

Figures released to News Shopper under the Freedom of Information Act show £6.2m has been spent on more than four million shares in the firm.

The cash comes from the council's pension fund and is part of almost £100m of investments the council has made.

The pension fund is made up of contributions from the council's general budget, which in turn comes from council tax and government grants.

Campaigners from Orpington Residents Against Masts say the investment is a conflict of interest.

It argues if the council was to give a Vodafone mast planning permission, it could be suggested it was not acting independently as it has an interest in the firm.

The group, which has 70 members and was founded in February, threatened to seek a judicial review if the council refused to change its decision to allow a new mast at the BT telephone exchange site in Chislehurst Road.

The council did refuse and members are now considering what action to take.

Campaigner James Malone, of Chislehurst Road , Orpington, says although the council has not legally done anything wrong it does not look right.

He said: "This investment is in line with the council's cynical attitude towards mobile phone masts."

Fellow member Susan Green, of New Road, Orpington, says it is undemocratic the public does not have access to information on where public money is invested.

She said: "It absolutely stinks they have got a financial interest in this company."

Vodafone, which has more than 165 million customers worldwide, tops a list of more than 100 companies Bromley Council has invested in for its pension fund.

A council spokesman said: "Acting on legal advice, the council has a primary responsibility to secure the best investment returns on behalf of council tax payers."

The spokesman says investment managers seek to encourage good social, environmental and ethical practice in the companies' activities, details of which can be found in its published Statement of Investment Principles.


It seems to me that the Council in Bromley have breached the Code of Conduct, but I'm not quite sure.

How can they represent the residents by following their wishes not to have a mast erected near them if they have a financial interest? Or are they not going to represent their constituents in this matter at all?

Mast plan is halted

Retford Today

A PLAN to build a 65ft phone mast on industrial land in Beckingham has been halted, despite Bassetlaw Council giving it the green light.

Councillors on the planning committee voted 10 in favour and seven against the 3G mast planned at Difuria Ltd on Wood Lane at a meeting last Wednesday night. The proposal received 96 letters of objection and a 113 signature petition against it. But on Monday the head of Difuria, Tony Difuria, sent a letter to Beckingham cum Saundby Parish Council. It said: "We can confirm we will cancel the construction of the mast on our land." "We as a family did not know it was such a controversial issue in the village." "We had no involvement in the planning or siting of this and we are all Beckingham residents."

The move comes after a group of residents went to see Mr Difuria on Friday morning after the planning permission was granted by the council. "Mr Difuria was very approachable when we went to see him," said Penny Weightman. "Our original protest was not about there being a mast, but where it was going to be."

Bassetlaw Council's decision to grant permission had sparked outrage among villagers and councillors. Beckingham resident Coun Ken Bullivant, who sits on Bassetlaw Council, but not the planning committee, as well as Notts County Council hit out at the initial decision. "It was a real shame that they gave the go ahead for this." "There are so many other sites in the village that could have been used instead." But he also welcomed the news that the mast was no longer going to be on that site. "That is all that we wanted – there was never any issues about there being a mast in the village, but we didn't want it at that location." "I thought we put up a good fight during the meeting and thought that we had won our case, so was surprised that permission was granted for it."

On Monday Mr Difuria confirmed he was no longer allowing the mast to be built on his land. "We didn't realise people were so unhappy with this – we hadn't heard anything about it."

'ANXIOUS' campaigners deeply concerned about the effects of phone masts were relieved to see three more refused last week.

Ellie Piovesana
News Reporter

In front of a packed audience, members of the council's planning committee stood their ground against O2, branding masts 'monstrosities' and blasting Vodaphone for wanting one just 16 metres from one man's home.

"It was a resounding victory," said 'jubilant' campaigner Chris Aston.

"We took on a giant and came out smiling."

On Wednesday, November 9, councillors threw out two applications for O2 masts in Amington Fields and land off Marlborough Way for being too close to homes.

A third application for a 10 metre Vodaphone mast in Gillway Lane met the same fate when resident Barry Hunt said it would be just 16 metres from his teenage daughter's bedroom.

"We are anxious, stressed and fearful of the future," he said.

All three masts were refused by every member of the committee who stood by their agreed policy of putting masts at least 100 metres from homes.

Speaking at the meeting, Glascote ward councillor Chris Cooke, said: " Tamworth 's policy of 100 metres is inadequate - but at least it's something!"

Cllr Cooke echoed health fears and questioned Vodaphone's consultation methods, saying: "I don't feel sending a letter to councillors alone adequately deals with the company's duty to consult the public."

Mr Aston, of Kirtley, Glascote Heath, led a campaign with neighbour Richard Heath.

Both men highlighted deep-rooted fears a mast near their homes could be detrimental to health, children walking to school and the potential Olympic hopefuls using Glascote Stadium.

O2 and Vodaphone are expected to appeal against the decision, something Mr Aston is more than ready for.

"We'll be ready and we'll come out fighting again," he added. "I wonder if the O2 managing director would want one of these by his swimming pool."



Today's vote in the House, resoundingly rejecting the administration's cruel budget cuts for the poor to finance more tax cuts for the rich, was no surprise to the more than 6,000 participants of our system who submitted their personal objections to their members of Congress. And now there are also more voices in the Senate demanding that we pull in the reins on the out of control fascist aspects of propaganda named Patriot Act. The administration's FBI plants are actually fighting for language to authorize "UNNECESSARY" intrusive searches.

ACTION PAGE: http://www.millionphonemarch.com/patriot.htm

Republicans Craig, Sununu and Murkowski, and Democrats Durbin, Feingold and Salazar are to be credited for being outraged that even the very modest restraints against abuse of government power in the bill were cut out by the conference committee. We need to send them our messages of support on this, and tell the rest of our senators who are not on board to start fighting for we the people for a change.


Of course, regardless of what abuses of presidential power the Congress might rubberstamp were we NOT to speak out, you can be sure that Bush's latest designated player, Supreme Court nominee Alito, would wave it through. His paper trail is not nearly as well hidden as was Roberts, and the more we learn, the more we understand that he is nothing but a reactionary with a committed lifelong agenda. Please not only demand his rejection, but that ANY replacement for Sandra Day O'Connor be no worse than a true moderate centrist

ACTION PAGE: http://www.nocrony.com/no_conservative.htm

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

Viele Menschen fürchten sich vor den gesundheitlichen Folgen von Elektrosmog


Leukämie und elektromagnetische Felder

Krebs und Mobilfunk

Rätselhafte Krankheit: Epidemiologen wollen Zusammenhang zwischen Sendemasten und kindlicher Leukämie erkunden

Von Sascha Ott

Epidemiologie. - Kindliche Leukämie ist eine Krankheit, deren Ursachen Stoff für heftigste Diskussionen selbst unter Fachleuten bietet. Unter anderem stehen Sendemasten wegen der von ihnen ausgehenden elektromagnetischen Strahlung unter Verdacht. Eine breit angelegte epidemiologische Studie will jetzt herausfinden, ob sich Zusammenhänge herstellen lassen.

Die Mischung ist explosiv: eine allgegenwärtige Technik, eine grausame Krankheit und ein Risiko, das wissenschaftlich kaum zu ermessen ist. Kein Wunder, dass in der Diskussion des so genannten Elektrosmogs die Fronten seit Jahren verhärtet sind. Ob Handys Krebs auslösen oder Mobilfunkmasten uns den Schlaf rauben können, ist bisher ungeklärt. Nur in einem Bereich haben sich die Verdachtsfälle mittlerweile soweit verdichtet, dass unter unabhängigen Experten weitgehend Einigkeit besteht.

"Leukämie bei Kindern ist letztendlich die Erkrankung, wo von wissenschaftlicher Seite aus die meisten Hinweise bestehen, dass elektromagnetische Felder hier ein Risikofaktor sein könnten."

Dr. Joachim Schüz war selbst am epidemiologischen Institut der Universität Mainz an einigen dieser Studien beteiligt. In den 90er Jahren fanden mehrere Untersuchungen ein leicht erhöhtes Leukämie-Risiko für Kinder, die in der Nähe von starker niedrigfrequenter Strahlung aufwuchsen, zum Beispiel Hochspannungsleitungen oder Transformatoren. Eine biologische Erklärung für diese Ergebnisse konnte jedoch nicht gefunden werden. Seit langem schon steht auch die hochfrequente Strahlung der Rundfunksender unter Verdacht. Mittelwellensender strahlen mit einer Leistung von etwa 1,8 Megawatt. Noch im Abstand von 300 Metern wird der empfohlene Grenzwert der EU für elektromagnetische Strahlung überschritten. Bisher gingen allerdings erst wenige Studien der Frage nach, ob es gefährlich ist, in der Nähe dieser Sender aufzuwachsen. Schüz:

"Da ist zum Beispiel eine um den Radiosender Vatikan herum gemacht worden, um eine der stärksten Sendeanlagen, weil ja die ganze Welt mit dem Programm versorgt werden soll, wo man dann eine Risikoerhöhung für Kinderleukämie gefunden hat. Allerdings basierend auf nicht mal einer Handvoll Fällen letztendlich. Und das ist dann dementsprechend auch für alle Interpretationen offen."

Um mehr Fälle untersuchen zu können, helfen den Mainzer Forschern bei ihrer neuen Studie zwei große Datenquellen: das Kinderkrebsregister und die ARD. Im Krebsregister sind alle Leukämie-Erkrankungen in Deutschland seit Anfang der 80er Jahre erfasst. Die ARD wiederum verfügt über detaillierte Aufzeichnungen darüber, wann welcher Sendemast in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten wie starke Radiowellen verbreitet hat. Jetzt soll die Strahlenbelastung von Kindern, die seit 1984 an Leukämie erkrankt sind, verglichen werden mit einer gesunden Kontrollgruppe. Was wie eine relativ einfache Statistik-Aufgabe klingt, steckt in der Praxis voller Tücken. Schüz:

"Selbst wenn man die Sendeleistung einer Sendeanlage kennt und über das Antennendiagramm auch noch kennt, in welche Richtung wie stark abgestrahlt wird, ist es trotzdem schwierig für einen bestimmten Punkt die Feldstärke vorherzusagen. Das heißt, wir werden zusätzlich noch einmal mit Messreihen untersuchen, wie gut diese Abschätzungen zutreffen."

Außerdem stehen Joachim Schüz und sein Team vor der kniffligen Aufgabe, eine repräsentative Kontrollgruppe zu finden. Diese Probanden müssen zur gleichen Zeit unter vergleichbaren Bedingungen aufgewachsen sein, wie die Erkrankten. Die Epidemiologen wollen mehr als 2000 Fälle von Kinderleukämie aus den letzten 20 Jahren in die Studie aufnehmen. Mit dieser hohen Fallzahl sollte sich auch ein nur geringes Krebsrisiko nachweisen lassen. Schüz:

"Wir hoffen, dass wir allein mit dieser Studie in Deutschland schon relativ verlässliche Aussagen machen können. Von der Biologie her würde man eigentlich keinen Zusammenhang erwarten. Aber letztendlich, wenn wir in unserer Studie einen Zusammenhang sehen, dann wäre der alles andere als einfach wegzudiskutieren. Und das würden wir auch nicht tun."

Doz. Dr. Joachim Schüz ist Mitglied im Ausschuss nicht-ionisierender Strahlung der Strahlenschutzkommission (SSK). Joachim Schüz wird als Verharmloser des wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisstandes mit deutlicher Industrienähe beschrieben. Siehe unter: http://omega.twoday.net/stories/238911/ und

Da ein Großteil der Daten bereits vorhanden ist, könnten die Ergebnisse - für eine Studie dieser Größenordnung - relativ zügig vorliegen. Schon Mitte 2007 soll geklärt sein, ob eine Kindheit in der Nähe von Rundfunksendern unsichtbare Risiken birgt.

The End of News?

Michael Massing: The Bush administration has restricted access to public documents as no other before it. The restrictions have grown so tight that the normally quiescent American Society of Newspaper Editors last fall issued a "call to arms" to its members, urging them to "demand answers in print and in court" to stop this "deeply disturbing" trend. With the President's poll numbers down and infighting among conservatives more visible, the coverage of Washington has sharpened of late, but overall the climate remains hostile to good reporting.
