An increasing number of American citizens and elected officials are voicing their concerns and opposition to widespread 5G small cell installation. Recently, another meeting was held to discuss this in Washington D.C.
From the Washington Informer:
Ward 8 Council member Trayon White told the gathering “5G is a heavy topic, both positive and negative.”
“There are supposed to be 3,000 small-cell towers built and we are greatly concerned,” he said. “The building community already offered a disapproval resolution and we are concerned about radiation.”
Three other speakers, Clint Odom, Maurita Coley Flippin and Delano Squires, talked during the forum about the positive aspects of 5G.
“We want our people to just not be consumers but have a piece of the action,” said Flippin, president and CEO of the Multicultural Cultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council.
Flippin said, for example, the Greater Washington Urban League has created an apprenticeship program that will create 1,000 jobs.
But residents at the forum nevertheless had many questions that could not be answered, including how much more will consumers have to pay, whether 5G networks will compromise people’s personal information and whether additional lines being installed will further clutter District neighborhoods.
Residents’ concerns about radiation are valid:
- In February, the Telecom Industry gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe.
- 5G is already operating in some communities and people are suffering from exposure (see 1, 2, 3). So are their pets.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry. They choose to protect the telecom industry instead (see 1, 2, 3). Elected officials are supposed to protect the public too. Unfortunately many of them have seem to have been bought off by the telecoms as well.
