WORLDWIDE PROTESTS AGAINST 5G ON JANUARY 25, 2020
Protests will take place in many countries on Saturday, January 25, 2020. This is the first Global Day of Protest against 5G. It is only the first of more to come until our voices are heard and the irradiation of the Earth is stopped. In the days leading up to January 25, the 5G Space Appeal, with over 3,300 pages of signatures, will be delivered in person to many governments.
This threat to life on Earth is more immediate than climate change. If we want our children to have enough of a future even to fight climate change, our society must stop pretending that radio waves are harmless and that wireless technology is safe. It is not. It must end. If you want to be able to live a full and vibrant life again, without the aid of sleeping pills, antianxiety medications, or antidepressants; to eat whatever you want without the risk of diabetes or heart disease; to see the great nations of birds and bees recover their populations, you must throw away your cell phones.
You cannot hold a cell phone near your body, even for a few minutes, without damaging your nervous system and your cells. You cannot expect to use a cell phone in an emergency without the entire wireless infrastructure of the world being there, including all the towers and satellites. The demand for wireless communication and the revenue from wireless devices is tremendous; it is what is fueling, and paying for, 5G. If we want to stop 5G, but we won’t give up our cell phones, it is not going to happen, and we will shortly not have a planet to live on.
Public protests are planned for January 25, 2020 in Durban, South Africa; Canberra and Sydney, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; Torino, Bologna, Ravenna and other locations in Italy; London, Edinburgh, Isle of Man and other locations in the United Kingdom; Washington, DC, New York City, Hawaii and other locations in the United States; Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and other locations in Canada; and in Belgium, Bermuda, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Kenya, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and other countries. The list is growing daily. Information about events in your country, including Facebook pages and email contacts, is available on the Stop 5G International website, here: https://stop5ginternational.org/5g-protest-day.

60 More Satellites Were Launched Today
This evening at 9:19 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, SpaceX launched another 60 satellites on a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This brings the number of SpaceX’s “Starlink” satellites orbiting the Earth up to 180. SpaceX plans to continue launching 60 satellites at a time, twice a month, for the foreseeable future. It intends to begin supplying 5G from space as soon as at least 420 satellites are in orbit and the Federal Communications Commission has approved its application to sell one million user devices to the American public. The FCC, to date, has not approved that application.
The Cellular Phone Task Force has posted a summary describing the satellite plans by SpaceX and seven other companies; how the satellites will be integrated into the global wireless network; and the expected effects on health and environment.
125 Cities in Italy Oppose 5G
Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G has published on its website a list of 125 municipalities in Italy that have passed resolutions or ordinances opposing 5G.
Italian astrophysicist Stefano Gallozzi is organizing a protest by Italy’s scientific community against SpaceX’s Starlink satellites because they will interfere with astronomers’ observations of the stars, and will especially interfere with radio astronomy telescopes. Gallozzi is also the co-administrator of Stop 5G Italia, which has more than 10,000 members and is helping to organize events in Italian cities for January 25.
Update on the Federal Lawsuit in New Mexico
From 2016 to 2018, New Mexicans for Utility Safety worked with other organizations to defeat smart meters in much of our state. As a result, there are no smart meters in New Mexico’s major cities and surroundings.
In December 2018, the Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety filed a lawsuit against the City of Santa Fe, the State of New Mexico, and the United States of America in federal district court. We are asking the court to declare that city, state and federal laws that effectively mandate 5G and deprive the public of the right to protect themselves from injury to their health, property and environment, are unconstitutional.
Briefing on our motion for preliminary injunction, in which we have asked the court to order that no antennas be built on the sidewalks in Santa Fe before trial, was completed on October 1, 2019. We are waiting to see what the court will do. So are the telecommunications companies. So far, in Santa Fe, there are no antennas on the sidewalks.

My book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life, is being published in paperback by Chelsea Green. It will be available for sale by Chelsea Green on March 3, 2020. I still have about 430 copies of the hardcover edition of The Invisible Rainbow left. They can be purchased here: https://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/buy-the-invisible-rainbow.
The Invisible Rainbow is the first book that tells the history of electricity from an environmental point of view, including chapters on heart disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as a chapter on bees, birds and forests. The book begins in the year 1746 and gives the background that is necessary in order to understand what is happening today. It is an engrossing story, written in the spirit of Silent Spring.
Donations in any amount are welcome and are used where most needed to support the global effort to stop 5G. This includes paying for lawyers, expert witnesses, web designer, web developer, email services, computer time, office supplies, phone bills, printing costs, and other necessary expenses. Sufficient funds would also pay for publicity for our cause and for clerical help, which are much needed. All donations go to Cellular Phone Task Force Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and are tax-deductible for U.S. residents. Our Tax ID Number is 11-3394550.
