News July 2023

We see continued success as mast applications are being refused across the country, with an estimated 60% refusal rate. However further progress is needed to protect the public and the environment as every approval is of deep concern, especially to the children living and attending schools in close proximity to 5G masts. 

One approval has finally been overturned after intense pressure in Lewes, as the council finally agreed that the planning permission given wasn’t valid; however a case against a mast very near a school was withdrawn in Maidstone.

Planning rules for 5G masts in England Dec 2022

NOISE POLLUTION – deciding factor in 5G mast refusal in Bristol.

Campaigners were initially excited when noticing a “pollution control officer” report amongst the documents on the planning portal for an extension to a “temporary 5G mast” in Bristol;  they thought that finally-the long-term polluting effects were being assessed. Alas, it was not the radiation pollution but the noise pollution from the cabinets which was the focus of the report and interestingly was a factor in the refusal. The potential noise hazard could be used to request information about an assessment of the noise from the cabinets in any other 5G mast application and added as an issue in objections quoting this report as evidence that the hazard can be a hazard.

Pollution Control Officer Report The assessment does recommend some noise mitigation measures to the generator and Wiltshire cabinet and estimates that this should give a sound reduction of approximately 10dB. This reduction hasn’t however been taken into account with any overall assessment of the noise. In light of the above I would have to currently object to this application but would be happy to discuss if needed”

Richie Allen is joined by Kate Moore and Julia Burgess. Kate Moore is a parent whose children attend Valley Park School in Maidstone, Kent. Kate was appalled to learn that Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) had approved an application for a 15 metre 5G mast to be erected less than 10 metres from the school boundary and less than 100 metres from the classrooms. (from 25-60mins)

Another success as Southend Residents Association has had an article published in their local paper re 5G … as we all know exposure and reaching our locals is key to dismantling the Gov propaganda.


SpaceX satellites leaking radio waves. Astronomers are worried about leakage in the MHz range. On July 5 2023, astronomers from various institutions announced that their new study has detected “unintended electromagnetic radiation” emanating from the onboard electronics of the controversial Starlink satellites.

Auroral-Like Glow Produced By SpaceX Rockets Making Holes In The Ionosphere. “This is the largest rocket-induced circular SAW (shock acoustic wave) on record, and was due to the unique, nearly vertical attitude of the rocket during orbit insertion.” However, future generations of rockets, with the capacity for larger payloads, could produce events like this even when launching on more traditional paths, making large ionosphere holes common without regulation. It also caused a one-meter GPS error, which may not be much of a worry, but if multiple factors combine to cause more intense TECs disruptions this may be an early warning sign.

Low-level EMF effects on wildlife and plants: What research tells us about an ecosystem approach. From November 2022, but a good reminder. Fourth Paper by Levitt, Lai and Manville.

A detailed examination —likely the most exhaustive ever attempted— of the environmental effects of non-ionizing radiation has been published in Reviews on Environmental Health.

“Effects of Non-Ionizing Electromagnetic Fields on Flora and Fauna” is in three parts, the last of which was posted today. They are:

Sean Carneys film “Remembering Nearfield” won best health film at Cannes film festival. Remembering Nearfield is an international animated film about a disability called electrohypersensitivity (EHS). Watch on VIMEO. Award Winner (Best Health Film) in the Cannes World Film Festival.

A memoir with a message for the modern world. New Film: Surrounded, by Sam Wieder. Could the radiation from your cell phone and other electronic devices be wearing you down each day, keeping you up at night, or slowly and steadily assaulting your health?  Maybe you’ve heard about the numerous scientific studies that show why this may be the case.  What you may not have heard is a compelling personal story that has motivated and guided you to do something about it. 


Genetic effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR): A copy of Lai’s bibliography of 440 RF genotoxicity papers

How Money and Power Dominate RF Research: The Lai-Singh DNA Breaks 30 Years On
A Conversation with Henry Lai June 2023

The radiation may well be too weak to break a chemical bond, they said, but RF could, by some as-yet unexplained mechanism, set off a cascade of reactions leading to the same result: broken DNA.

The field of RF genotoxicology has mushroomed since that first DNA breaks paper. Lai still tracks the literature and, on an almost daily basis, updates his bibliographies. As of last week, he had tabulated 440 papers on RF genotoxicity: 70 percent show effects and 30 percent do not.
