CORRECTION re: 5G in schools—and some urgent news about two bills, just signed into law, pushing the 5G agenda forward.

First, this correction from Guy Vantresca:

It’s not 5G wireless network being installed in schools, but 5Ghz WiFi.  While 5G means 5th-Generation wireless technology. 5Ghz is a frequency for WiFi networks, meaning 5 Giga Hertz.  Schools already have 2.4Ghz WiFi networks, and this would be increasing the frequency of that WiFi.  It’s still damaging to children. WiFi should be removed from ALL schools.  

As for 5G, please note this important warning from Les Jamieson:

While the whole country is overwhelmed by pandemic news, Trump just signed 2 laws pushing the 5G agenda forward. Here’s the brief overview:

On Monday, March 23, 2020, the President signed into law:

S. 893, the “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020,” which requires the President to develop a strategy to:  (1) ensure the security of next generation mobile telecommunications systems and infrastructure in the United States; and (2) assist allies and strategic partners in maximizing the security of next generation mobile telecommunications systems and infrastructure; and

S. 1822, the “Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act or the Broadband DATA Act,” which requires the Federal Communications Commission to issue rules relating to the collection of data with respect to the availability of broadband services.

This article gives a bit more background:

Part of the rationale is that Trump and the proponents of 5G are claiming these laws will help provide broadband to rural areas. They’re also using the pandemic to claim the need for a larger and faster bandwidth for the public to be in contact. In other words, this is for everyone’s safety.

It’s notable that funding needed to enact what’s in the bill has not been passed yet. So the money still has to be provided. I’ve researching a provision in the Constitution that allows the public to object to a new law within 30 days of passage. We could also elevate the C&D Notice concept and direct it to Trump himself. The central message is “we do not consent”. More to come on that.  

The onslaught continues. Vigilance and action are in order.
