On June 8, Amazon will activate Amazon Sidewalk, a mass wireless sharing network. Users of all Amazon smart devices will be automatically enrolled, without consent, unless they opt out by disabling the network settings. The Amazon Sidewalk network will allow shared internet use up to within about a half-mile radius of the Amazon device. In effect, this network is part of the creation of “smart cities.” Amazon Sidewalk includes a “Community Finding” feature that allows people outside of your home to connect with Amazon’s servers through your Alexa, Echo, Ring and related smart devices. Violation of privacy, personal data and safety Most people have no idea the network will be activated on June 8, or that they will be automatically connected without consent. Even fewer understand the full implications. Being part of the Amazon “smart” networks increases the chances devices and information will be hacked, as “smart” wireless devices are prone to hacking. Amazon has been sued by Ring users whose devices were hacked — some received ransom demands.

Brown v. LAUSD establishes that symptoms of ‘electromagnetic hypersensitivity’ a.k.a. ‘Microwave Sickness’ could be deemed a ‘physical disability’ under the FEHA
Today, JML Law announced it has won a major appeal in the California Court of Appeal that establishes that a plaintiff who pleads symptoms and physical manifestations of “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” has adequately alleged that they suffer from a “physical disability” under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”).
In the majority opinion handed down in the case, Brown v. LAUSD (Appeal No. B294240), the Court of Appeal recognized that it doesn’t matter whether or not other courts in the United States have recognized “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” as a disability under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) because JML Law’s client, Laurie Brown, has brought her case not under the ADA, but under FEHA, which is broader in scope.
The Court of Appeal held that Brown sufficiently alleged that she suffered from a physical disability under the FEHA and that she sufficiently stated a cause of action for failure to accommodate, where she alleged that LAUSD refused to honor an accommodation which LAUSD had agreed to provide to Brown. The Court of Appeal stated that based on their reading of Brown’s First Amended Complaint, “LAUSD’s actions here do not align with those of an employer taking positive steps to accommodate the employee’s limitations.”
The complete published opinion by the Court of Appeal:
The Defender reported last week on a new lawsuit filed by the family of a Louisiana pastor alleging cell phone use caused the man’s fatal glioblastoma brain tumor. This is not the first case of its kind — there are more than 70 cell phone brain tumor cases in the U.S. Courts.
As the complaint filed last week demonstrates, there is ample evidence showing cell phones cause brain tumors, and that the telecommunications industry has misled the public to believe that cell phones are safe.
Attorney Hunter Lundy, one of the leading personal injury lawyers in the U.S. and who has been at the forefront of this litigation, and attorney Dafna Tachover, Children’s Health Defense’s (CHD) 5G and Wireless Harms Project director, will shed light on the cell phone brain tumor litigation during a webinar Wednesday, April 28 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. Register below.
So far, the telecom industry has kept these lawsuits from going to trial — in some cases for as long as 20 years — by using various delay tactics. However an expert report from a retired department director at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a scheduled evidentiary hearing and this new case may be game changers.
The webinar — “Cell Phone Brain Tumor Litigation in the U.S.: Legislation, Barriers & Opportunities” — will cover the history of the litigation; tactics used by the telecom industry to delay these cases from going to trial; legislation and key legal issues that have affected the litigation; the upcoming evidentiary hearing that will decide whether or not these cases will move forward to a jury trial; the opportunities presented by the new case filed in federal court by Lundy and CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; and why it may help to finally expose what is likely one of the biggest frauds that has ever been perpetuated on the public.
On Feb. 26, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) filed a new lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) challenging the adoption of a rule that would allow people to install wireless transmitting antennas on their homes without notifying neighboring properties. The suit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals in the DC Circuit.
At issue is an amendment to the “Over-the-Air Reception Devices” rule (“OTARD”) that would deprive people of the opportunity to object to the installation of wireless transmitting antennas on neighboring homes.
The rule, set to take effect March 29, would facilitate the fast deployment of 5G and 1,000,000 SpaceX’ Satellite antennas and create super Wi-Fi mesh networks in urban and rural areas.
CHD’s lawsuit, filed under the Administrative Procedure Act, asserts that the FCC’s amended OTARD rule violates constitutional rights and upends long-standing common law personal and property rights. The suit alleges that the amended rule leads to due process violations, is arbitrary, represents an abuse of discretion and was passed without authority and statutory jurisdiction.
Children's Health Defense
filed its response to the FCC's brief on Monday, 10/19, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The case against the FCC is challenging the agency’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines” and to adopt scientific, biologically-based radio frequency emissions rules that adequately protect public health.
Watch the press conference here:
The FCC says its antiquated laws protect children and that phones do not need to be tested the way they are used — touching the body. You would not believe some of the other assertions the agency made to defend its decision not to update their wireless limits.
Environmental Health is submitting their final response to the court, The brief is filed jointly with Children's Health Defense. Listen as Dr. Devra Davis offers some rebuttals to the FCC's claims.
by Attorney Dafna Tachover
To fulfill our commitment to stopping the harmful exposure of our children to 5G and wireless radiation, Children's Health Defense has taken the giant step toward unprecedented litigation against the FCC. This illuminating and celebratory press conference was held the day after CHD filed its evidentiary brief.
The case is challenging the FCC’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines”and to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health.
The FCC’s false “health guidelines” have enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of harmful wireless technology and more recently, the deployment of dangerous 5G installations.
CHD’s lawsuit asserts that the FCC’s refusal to update these guidelines despite the submission of overwhelming evidence of harm from wireless technology radiation, is capricious, arbitrary, not evidence based, and an abuse of its discretion.
The success of our case will be a game changer in the battle to stop Big Tech from further damaging children and all life.
This evidentiary brief is the main submission in our case and provides the evidence upon which the petitioners rely. It cites thousands of studies, including those conducted by U.S. government agencies, and numerous reports that show clear evidence of harm. It also outlines scientifically the established mechanisms of harm from wireless radiation.
Additionally, the brief shines a light on the human evidence of widespread sickness, which the FCC ignored when it egregiously closed its docket on the issue on Dec. 4 2019.
This illuminating and celebratory press conference was held the day after CHD filed its brief .
Speakers included: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., CHD Chairman; Dafna Tachover, Esq. MBA, CHD’s Director of 5G & Wireless Harms Project; Scott McCollough, Esq., CHD’s attorney; and David Carpenter, M.D., a Petitioner in the case; as well as parents who submitted affidavits in the case describing their children’s injuries and death from wireless radiation.
The word pandemic is on the lips and minds of people all over the world. Rumors abound. But what is Covid-19 exactly? Is it a virus? And if so what’s causing it? Do EMFs and 5G have a role to play?
One thing is clear - we need to stop paying attention to rumors and instead look at the evidence and trust our own inner wisdom. In this post EMF awareness activist Shannon Rowan lays out the evidence and she also shares 17 solutions – what you can do in the midst of the pandemic.
By Nicolas Pineault - author and researcher
After spending day and night studying the issue in the last weeks, I identified 8 very inconvenient facts that are mostly missing from current discussions and reporting on COVID-19. Without further ado, here’s my honest attempt at looking at the situation calmly and rationally.
Dear EMF Aware Community,
I'm feeling so much gratitude for our group. It seems even more important now to honor all our connections with family and friends. Thank you!
I am noticing hidden blessings everywhere - life has slowed down, there's nowhere to go, nothing to do, more time for reflection and spending time in nature, more time for listening, for caring, for kindness.
I encourage everyone to put your focus in this direction and away from fear.
I also encourage everyone to keep an open mind and ask important questions. Don't necessarily take everything presented at face value. I believe it's always valuable to take a long look down every road in both directions when considering what is true.
With everyone spending so much time at home now, in front of computers, it would be a good time to use wired connections, to minimize your RF exposure. Here are some tips in that regard
wishing you well,
Never before in human history has such a threat against human eyesight been unleashed as today in the Microwave Age. Healthy human eyes and enduring clarity of eyesight are blessings of the long-gone past.
At special risk are infants, students and workers caught in toxic buildings where wireless eye damage has been made compulsory by devious radiation profiteers. Vehicles and aircraft saturated with RF/microwave radiation are exceptionally hazardous to human eyes.
Epidemiological studies of people living close to cell tower antennas document widespread complaints about eye and vision abnormalities (Santini 2002/ Oberfeld 2004/ Bortkiewicz 2004). Many victims damaged by cell phones, Wi-Fi antennas and smart meters also complain of related eye problems.
Pathological effects of RF/microwave radiation on human eyes include: eye inflammation and redness, pain or burning in the eyes, a feeling of pressure behind the eyes, floaters in the vitreous humor, cataracts, deteriorating vision--including macular degeneration-- and eye cancers.

My heart goes out to China and to all its people who have suffered so much due to this new “novel” Wuhan coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).
However, as someone who had become very sick and had his immune system break down and was sick for six months looking for answers before even suspecting that living in close vicinity to several cell phone towers was actually what was causing the problem and making him sick, I feel I cannot in good conscience remain silent, and I strongly suspect that China and the rest of the world are looking under the wrong stone for what is actually the problem here.
At the moment, with 10,000 recently installed 5G antennas plastering its city, Wuhan is probably one of the most 5G-electropolluted cities on the planet.
It's also very important to be aware that the FCC's method for conducting these "thermal effects only" tests uses a plastic head filled with a fluid simulating the brain, for short very exposures. This test is used as the basis for all cell phone "safe" exposure limits.
Devra Davis, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist has filed a lawsuit alleging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) failed to update cellular phone and wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation limits and cellular phone testing methods in over two decades.
These failures, the plaintiffs contend, ignore “peer-reviewed scientific studies showing that radiation from cell phones and cell phone towers and transmitters is associated with severe health effects in humans, including cancer, DNA damage, damage to the reproductive organs, and brain damage (including memory problems).”
On December 4, 2019 the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) declined to review its obsolete 1996 guidelines, and determined that the guidelines are protective of human health, opening the way for the continued uninterrupted deployment of 5G, exposing our children to harmful radiation.
Their actions provide a rare opportunity to sue the FCC and expose its disregard for public health that has been causing so many injuries and deaths, including among children.
Tomorrow, January 31, Children’s Health Defense will file a lawsuit against the FCC. We will be representing the many children who have been injured. This is the 5G opportunity we have been waiting for; a successful lawsuit on this will be a game changer.
We urge you to be part of the movement and support this lawsuit. Even small donations can help. Please designate 5G under Funding Options:
Watch the interview here:
Big Tech and Big Auto, seeing massive global declines in sales of, and interest in, their products, decided that the way to convince future consumers to go into debt for something they don’t really need was — ta-da! — the driverless car. They also concluded — and in this they were absolutely right — that any company that could create a little buzz about their prospects for making driverless cars would have firehoses of cash turned their way by wealth managers, hedge funds and the like.
Since the 1970s, the mobile phone industry has been systematically:
Lying to the public about the health risks of cell phones
Many studies have linked phone radiation to cancer, DNA damage, reproductive harm, behavioral changes and other health effects
Hiding the truth about how phones are radiation tested
Radiation results easily can be manipulated because mobile phones are tested in private labs with vague rules and no regulatory oversight
Blocking research that reveals serious health dangers
The industry repeatedly has denied funding and thwarted legitimate research into the health risks of mobile phone radiation
Infiltrating regulatory agencies and scientific societies
Company executives and industry groups consistently engage in "revolving-door" tactics to weaken regulations and oversight
Manipulating the facts about radiation emissions
The industry misrepresents the well-established effects that cell phone radiation has on the human body and biological systems
Robert Kennedy Jr., Chairman of Children’s Health Defense (CHD) has committed to be proactive on the concerns regarding excessive exposure of our children to 5G and wireless radiation. To fulfill this promise, Robert Kennedy Jr., Irregulators’ Attorney Scott W. McCollough and Dafna Tachover Attorney and CHD's Director of Stop 5G, will be submitting a lawsuit on February 3rd against the FCC for its December 4, 2019 decision to decline to review its 1996 guidelines, and for its determination that the guidelines are protective of human health.
The Dec. 4 determination provides a rare opportunity to sue the FCC and expose its disregard for public health that has been causing so many injuries and deaths. We will be representing the many children who have been injured. This is the opportunity we have been waiting for; a successful lawsuit on this will be a game changer.
Leapfrogging China/Awakening from the 5G Trance - A Winning Strategy and Action Plan for the Next U.S. President
A DEAFENING SILENCE
by Julian Gresser
How is it that none of the 2020 presidential candidates has spoken out about the accelerating deployment of 5G? Not a peep. Can they really be unaware of the dangers— the foreseeable and preventable harms to public health, the environment, and privacy from corporate and government surveillance? And what of over one trillion dollars in misdirected taxpayer funds and ratepayer overcharges during the past twenty years, as alleged in Irregulators v. FCC?
Why are they so blasé or ill-informed about the mountains of scientific evidence and reliable data showing harms from exposure to Radio Frequency Microwave Radiation (RFR) by a growing number of people? Why are we, the public, standing by helpless when we are being asked to shoulder hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and fees under a startling “public pays principle” (as contrasted with the 1972 standard OECD polluter pays principle) to subsidize the shareholders of a few wireless companies? Are we collectively in a Consensus Trance?
National consumer-rights law firm FeganScott consolidated its two proposed class action suits against Apple (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) after independent testing from a Federal Communications Commission-accredited laboratory confirmed that radio-frequency (RF) radiation levels from popular Apple and Samsung smartphones far exceeded federal limits when the devices are used as marketed by the manufacturers.
“The manufacturers told consumers this was safe, so we knew it was important to test the RF radiation exposure and see if this was true,” Fegan noted. “It is not true. The independent results confirm that RF radiation levels are well over the federal exposure limit, sometimes exceeding it by 500 percent, when phones are used in the way Apple and Samsung encourage us to. Consumers deserve to know the truth.”
The FCC-accredited lab tested six different brand-new smartphone models at various distances, ranging from zero to 10 millimeters to measure the amount of RF radiation released when touching or in close proximity to the body. When tested at two millimeters, the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 were more than twice the federal exposure limit. At zero millimeters, the iPhone 8 was five times more than the federal exposure limit, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 was more than three times the federal exposure limit.
The consolidated suit filed by FeganScott includes a comprehensive list of all named plaintiffs and includes the extensive FCC-accredited lab test results from all the smartphones tested: iPhone 7+, iPhone 8, iPhone XR, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S10.
The test settings reflected the smartphones’ actual use conditions, rather than the conditions set by manufacturers in order to produce results that appear to be safe for consumers.
Filed 12/5 in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division, the lawsuit seeks to represent Apple and Samsung smartphone owners. The suit asks the court to order the defendants to pay for medical monitoring and damages
Welcome aboard Dafna Tachover to Children's Health Defense as our new senior attorney and director of our 5G program. Dafna will lead our national battle to derail Big Telecom’s craven scheme to irradiate our children.
From Dafna -
"I feel honored to work with Robert Kennedy, jr, and with like minded people who are committed to the truth and to defending the rights and health of children.
Since the beginning of my advocacy work, protecting the children has been my passion and the force behind my work and my first act of activism was the Israeli Supreme Court case against the WiFi in schools, because the thought of children becoming as sick as I have from this radiation was intolerable for me. I am convinced that this collaboration will help increase the reach and effectiveness of the Stop 5G movement. Already around the country CHD supporters are leading the efforts on 5G and together we will continue to do our best every day until the truth will see light and until children's rights and health are protected!"
Bruce Kushnick and W. Scott McCollough, Esq are leading experts in the telecom industry who have mapped a pathway to restore the Internet to the human-friendly, benevolent ideals from which it started. As part of this redirection, they’re not afraid to call out the corruption of those who have hijacked it.
Bruce and Scott lead the IRREGULATORS, a group of telecom industry experts and insiders who are taking the FCC to federal court in January 2020, armed with evidence — of an estimated $1 Trillion scandal — and strategy that could very well pave the way to a great restructuring of telecom and dissolution of the 5G agenda.

In a major victory for consumer rights and public health, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a free speech challenge filed by the CTIA--The Wireless Association against the City of Berkeley's "cell phone right to know law" which the Berkeley City Council unanimously adopted in 2015.
Thus, the ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that the law is constitutional enables the city to continue to enforce the law which requires cell phone retailers to notify prospective customers about cell phone manufacturers' safety guidelines to ensure consumer safety.
In refusing to review the case, the Supreme Court ignored the pleas of six pro-business organizations that submitted amicus briefs in support of the CTIA's position.
We will be sharing this information with the Santa Cruz City Council, and advocating for the City to adopt a similar ordinance.
