US Commanders Knew Haditha Deaths From Gunfire

Marine commanders in Iraq knew within two days of the killings in Haditha in November that gunfire, not a roadside bomb, had killed Iraqi civilians but they saw no reason to investigate further, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

We can't say no to the masts

..in yesterdays Sussex Argus by of all people a Brighton Tory Councillor, Lynda Hyde.

I've emailed most Councillors re phone masts etc for years - this is the first time such a strong letter has been written by a Councillor.

See below

We can't say no to the masts

Kevin Haestler of Portslade is concerned for the health of his children if a 12.5m mast and base station is erected outside his house (to be precise 0.7 metres away and that is NOT a misprint) and asks why the planning system cannot refuse such applications on health grounds.

The reason is the Government has taken away the rights of local authorities to refuse applications on health grounds.

This is despite the Governments own Stewart Report which calls for a precautionary approach to the positioning of masts.

Masts of 15 metres and above are presented to the planning committee for a decision and many times such applications are refused.

However, if a telecommunications company appeals against the decision, it is then nearly always granted by the appeal inspector.

Again this is because councils are not permitted to refuse the application on health grounds.

Moreover, a mast which does not exceed 15 metres needs no planning consent at all.

A telecommunications operator may erect a mast under "permitted development rights".

The Government speaks of giving a "voice to the people" and then deliberately presses the mute button so they do not have a voice.

Perhaps I should also mention the Government sold licences to telecommunications companies for the magnificent sum of £23 billion.

Could this be the reason powers have been removed from local authorities?

I empathise with the gist of what Cllr Hyde has to say about central government banning the right to turn down such mobile phone installations on health grounds. She is also right in questioning whether this blanket ban has anything to do with the sale of 3G licences for the sum of circa £23 billion. I feel bound to comment on a couple of her other statements, however. This is not to criticise but merely to set the record straight.

It is quite true to say that masts 15 metres or more in height require full planning permission and that applications for such development are often refused. However, it is not correct to say that in the event of appeal, permission is almost always granted. Nor is it true to say that masts not exceeding 15 metres in height require no consent at all.

Ground based installations not exceeding 15 metres in height constitute permitted development through the provisions of Part 24 of the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO) and, other than in exceptional circumstances, applications are subject to the prior approval process which, as successive planning ministers have assured us, is a different procedure from planning permission in name only.

As with applications for planning permission, applications for prior approval are frequently refused but it does not follow that, in the event of appeal, approval is almost always granted by planning inspectors. The figures over the past five years indicate that over 30% of appeals against local planning authorities' decisions to refuse applications for masts are dismissed.

I accede that at present we cannot say no to masts on health grounds alone, albeit in my view it is only a matter of time before a causal link is established between the radiation associated with mobile phone technology and adverse health effects. Moreover, it is true to say that government policy and legislation in respect of mast development is very heavily weighted in favour of the operators and against the tenets of local democracy. That said, and despite the difficulties face by communities, there are several material planning considerations which can, and should, be deployed against applications to site mobile phone installations insensitively.

I will send a response based on the above text to the Argus.

Earplugs, Marines, and Haditha

Larry Johnson travels in Iraq, where he meets with soldiers who are heading to Haditha and offers that "We must also accept that Americans as a whole share some responsibility for the actions of these soldiers. We sent them to war. We put them square in the middle of the battle. We cannot simply sit idly on the sidelines clucking our tongues over the awful thing that was done."

End Cruel and Inhumane Factory-Farming Practice of Confining Pregnant Sows to Gestation Crates

Target: Bonnie Beaver, President, American Veterinary Medical Association

Imagine being shoved inside a small closet with barely enough room to move. Your feet begin to ache from the hard floor so you contort your body just enough to sit down. But after a while, this position offers no more comfort and you struggle to stand up again. The lack of room to walk or even turn around starts to atrophy your muscles, and festering sores on your feet make every movement agony. Now imagine spending six years like this-and you'll begin to understand what life is like for nearly 6 million pregnant or nursing pigs in the United States.

"Gestation crates” are miserably uncomfortable concrete-floored stalls so small that pigs inside them can’t even turn around. Although the scientific evidence condemning them as physically and mentally torturous for mother pigs is overwhelming and uncontested among scientists and veterinarians with animal welfare as their primary concern, the AVMA continues to support them. Sows in crates are forced into a constant cycle of pregnancy and birth and are never allowed to breathe fresh air, feel the sunshine on their backs, or know a moment’s joy or contentment.

In addition to torturing these intelligent animals into complete psychosis, the crates cause the sows’ bones and muscles to atrophy, and the pigs develop painful sores and lesions. Most of them are lame and very sick by the time they’re slaughtered. According to industry reports, more than 400,000 are crippled by the time they arrive at the slaughterhouse.

Clearly the AVMA would not remain silent were dogs so horribly abused, but pigs are smarter than dogs and just as sensitive and worthy of the AVMA’s concern. Unfortunately, pigs have anti-animal representatives in positions of power at the AVMA. The veterinarian who proposed the endorsement for gestation crates, Dr. David Madsen, is the AVMA delegate from the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, and he actually admitted in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association that the resolution was a response to animal rights groups’ objections to the use of gestation stalls.

Mystery at Marc-Seignobos school

This is translated from the french newspaper items on Next-up website combined with report sent to me by Next-up representative who confirmed the translation.

Iris Atzmon.


France, Chabeuil, Marc-Seignobos school: On the 1st of June, firefighters arrived to evacuate 800 pupils from the classes. More than 50 pupils complained on headaches, stomach pains, vision problems. Other 17 were taken to hospital to go through medical examinations and were released to their homes on the same day. The police came and also the mayor - and reassured the worried parents that everything was OK. In two letters that were sent to the parents and to the teachers, the principal informed that the examinations of water and air were "negative", and that the bad feeling of the pupils "had no character of gravity". The principal also asked the teachers to dedicate several minutes in order to "de-dramatize" the situation and added that it seemed that "the phenomenon had psycholoigical origines". "I didn't see the concerned pupils and so it's difficult to confirm but it's true that the reactions of collective fear, which were not correctly valued for long time, exist. It's possible to help a series of brutal and short anxiety attacks. The symptoms- migranes, spams, lost of consciousness...correspond to what was described to me about these students" explains Dr, Patricia Chevalier, a psychiatrist of children.

Next-up organization arrvied at the school and found that the school is exactly in the axis of the radiation beam from the cellular base station placed 200 meters from the school. Next-up made measurements in the school and found that on the same floor and in the rooms of the classes where the complaints came from - the electromagnetic fields were 1.1- 1.4 V/m. Next- Up representative reports, that the most difficult thing is to get information about the investigations of the health authorities and the police. Next-up is going to demand with the parents that investigations will be done about the base station of Orange until they know wether there had been or not modifications of radiation emited on the 31/5/2006 . For example, wether the companies had done experiements with UMTS at the same time. In the first floor, the point where there was maximum radiation, was exactly in the same rooms of classes where the pupils complained about the most of the symptoms. Next up and the parents of the pupils of Seignobos school, think that the collective psychological explanation is impossible. According to the data arrived to Next up, only pupils on the same floor (of the radiation beam) had symptoms (the staff on the ground floor had no symptoms). Around 300 pupils are on the same floor, many complained "suddenly" on headaches. There was a total of 93 faints according to Next-up. They are going to follow up this subject which is going to be reoprted this week also in the national news and add that "it is not food poisoning, not gas, not the ground, not collective psychology of a serious accident, not the sun etc..."

Dear All

I've had a look at this and tried to decipher what it is saying. This is possibly something new.

53 children were suddenly taken ill in a school with violent headaches, sickness and eye problems.

The school was evacuated.

A phone mast expert measured the radiation in the school the next day and found it was in the main beam from a mast. However the levels being about 1v/m couldn't produce such a violent reaction (although these levels are way too high in terms of long term effects) so as far as I understand he is postulating that the power must have been turned up suddenly towards 10 v/m which would produce these violent effects.

They have asked why this happened and if Orange can redirect the beam away from the school. Note that all these levels are still way below 'guidelines'!

//www.next-up.org/divers/images_x44.php

I have often wondered if there is a 'safety' mechanism on the antennae whereby they cannot 'accidently' be turned up above a certain point and if so what that point is?

If true that in this case the radiation levels were increased the only 3 reason I can think of are

a a mistake
b on purpose to see what the effects would be
c to obtain more coverage? (is this possible?)

What does this mean for all our existing masts?

I found this old article. Does anyone know if this is still the case that the above mentioned authorities have still got a ban on masts on schools?

Thanks

United Kingdom (1999)

According to an article in the Sunday Mirror United Kingdom Education chiefs are banning mobile phone masts from schools amid growing fars of a link between low-level radiation and cancer. A quarter of 400 schools approached recently have turned down offers of up to £10,000 to have the masts put up in their grounds

New research has shown a possible link between low- level radiation from masts and childhood leukaemia, cancer and brain disorders. Now some education authorities are adopting a safety-first approach.

Mast bans have been imposed in Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Warwickshire, Norfolk, Essex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. In Lincolnshire and Manchester schools are advised not to instal them. Of the 400 school masts erected already, many may not have their leases renewed. A spokeswoman for the Local Government Association said: "This is an issue we are taking extremely seriously."

Legal warning over phone mast decisions

Well this is interesting, the England's Parliamentary Party. Does anyone know anything about them?

Legal warning over phone mast decisions

Jun 2 2006

Chester Chronicle

A POLITICAL group has warned councillors they could be indicted for corporate manslaughter.

England's Parliamentary Party (EPP) collaborated with a pressure group called Masts Away from Schools Homes and Hospitals (MASHH), in a letter to the leader of Chester City Council, Paul Roberts (Lib Dem, Farndon).

The correspondence said if anyone was found to have been killed by radiation from a phone mast, criminal charges could be brought.

It said: 'England's Parliamentary Party is totally opposed to the location of these masts in populated areas and, hereby, formally puts you on notice that you may, as part of the decision-making process, be indicted for corporate manslaughter should a fatality occur resulting from illness deemed to be attributable to the emissions from these masts.

'You owe a duty of care to the people within the boundaries of this council and your decisions with regard to the location of telecommunications masts could breach that duty of care.

'As a result of that breach, should it cause a person's death, the law of negligence must be applied; if so, whether that breach of duty is so bad as to amount, when viewed objectively, to gross negligence, it will warrant a criminal conviction.'

Malcolm Harle, of MASHH, said his group was formed after residents fought against the siting of a mast in Westminster Park, close to a nursery.

He said: 'We are very concerned with the health implications but the Government at national and local level aren't listening. We realised pretty early on we needed political help.'

Cllr Roberts said: 'They are making some disgraceful threats without a shred of legal justification. In any planning decision, we listen to the best advice from Government and other professionals and we will always follow that advice.'

In a toxicological sense the environmental pollution by electromagnetic fields is cause (trigger and or part of chains of events) of damage to health. The chains of events would not happen if the link caused directly and or indirectly by the effects of the electromagnetic fields to the human being as a whole would lack. The health damage can be reversible (example: headache from a mobile phone) and irreversible (example: changes of DNA) can lead to or contribute to death (examples: Ena Bambrough in Newcastle (2001), suicides (known to have happened in France), cancer (changes of DNA)). In these cases indeed the operators of wireless systems, the owners of the systems, the owners of premises, the authorities are responsible. They consciously have added to the environmental pollution by electromagnetic fields, causing the link. They had information and could have decided to prevent the pollution by choosing the alternative of a wired system.

Verkehrte Welt: Gentechnik-Gegner vor Gericht - Prozess gegen zwei Imker, die 2005 eine Feldbefreiung ankündigten
Von: presse@gendreck-weg.de
Datum: Do, 29.06.2006, 11:16

Am Freitag um 9:00 Uhr beginnt im baden-württembergischen Rottenburg ein Prozess gegen die beiden Imker Michael Grolm und Jürgen Binder. Sie hatten 2005 angekündigt, Genmaispflanzen auf einem Feld bei Strausberg in Brandenburg herauszureißen. Der Vorwurf gegen die beiden lautet "öffentlicher Aufruf zu Straftaten".

Untenstehend berichten wir von den Gründen und der Motivation der beiden Imker und würden uns sehr freuen, wenn Sie die Information über den Prozess und die Initiative Gendreck-weg! in Ihren Medien, Mailverteilern und auf Ihren Internetseiten bekannt geben könnten.

Presseinformation vom 29.06.2006

* Verkehrte Welt: Gentechnik-Gegner vor Gericht
* Prozess gegen zwei Imker, die 2005 eine Feldbefreiung ankündigten
"Die Zeit ist reif. Wo manipuliertes Saatgut ausgesät wird, bleibt uns nur noch das Prinzip der Gefahrenabwehr."

2005 hatten Agraringenieur Michael Grolm und Imkermeister Jürgen Binder, angekündigt, Genmaispflanzen von einem Feld in der Nähe von Strausberg in Brandenburg herauszureißen. Am Freitag beginnt um 9.00 Uhr ein Prozess gegen die beiden wegen öffentlichen Aufrufes zur Straftat.

Binder und Grolm hatten per Info-Brief und Internetseite zahlreiche Menschen an ihrem Vorhaben teilhaben lassen. Unter dem Motto "Gendreck-weg" hatten sich schließlich 300 Gentechnik-Gegner und -Gegnerinnen Ende Juli der Feldbefreiung angeschlossen. Nun wirft ihnen die Tübinger Staatsanwaltschaft vor, öffentlich zu Straftaten aufgerufen zu haben. "Das verdreht die Tatsachen", sagt Michael Grolm. "Politik und Konzerne setzen uns und unsere Landwirtschaft dramatischen Risiken aus. Straftäter sind doch nicht die, die dagegen aktiv werden."

Der Konflikt um die Gentechnik in der Landwirtschaft ist zugespitzt. Für die Imker bedeutet Genmais selbst in entfernter Nachbarschaft Spuren gentechnisch veränderten Pollens im Honig - und damit eine Gefährdung ihrer Existenz. Die Agro-Gentechnik gefährdet die Gesundheit, mittels Patentrecht, Lockangeboten und massiver Lobbyarbeit bringen die Gentech-Konzerne Bauern in aller Welt in ihre Abhängigkeit.

Auch für 2006 sind Feldbefreiungsaktionen angekündigt. Erneut laden GentechnikgegnerInnen unter dem Motto "Gendreck-weg" zu einem gentechnikfreien Wochenende nach Brandenburg ein. Sie kündigen an, am 30. Juli ein Genmaisfeld bei Zehdenick nördlich von Berlin zu befreien.

Am Freitag findet der Prozess im kleinen Saal des Amtsgerichtes Rottenburg statt. "Es wäre schön, wenn dieser Saal voll wird", sagte Michael Grolm.

Residents mobilise against mobiles

Traffic on the Cavehill Road was brought to a standstill during a protest by angry families against the proposed building of a mobile phone mast at the junction of the North Circular Road.

Over 100 people held the demonstration after test holes were seen being drilled on the roadside, indicating that the mobile phone company ‘3’ were renewing interest in the site.

Four years ago local people got together and formed the Cavehill Residents Action Group (CRAG) to object to a planning application from the telecommunications company ‘3’ (then known as 3G) for a 15-foot mast and cabinet. The residents maintained there was no evidence that the equipment was safe, a claim disputed by the phone company. CRAG then sought a high court injunction after the planning application was approved but this move also failed.

Despite getting the go ahead however, no more work was carried out by the phone company.

But the Planning Service have now confirmed that inquiries have been made by an agent for ‘3’ to establish if the company now needs any further planning permission to erect a mast. Briege O’Hare of CRAG this week said residents are as determined as ever to prevent any future mast being built.

“Based on government reports there is still not enough evidence to show that mobile phone masts are safe and until we have a better idea of the long term risks associated with these things – especially on children – we will be fighting to prevent them being built in areas like this. This campaign will be a success because we will not stop no matter what happens. CRAG is willing to help other groups who are fighting against these masts.”

She said more care should be put into the decisions as to where masts are built.

“People do need mobile phones but they also need to know they are safe. We want exclusions zones set up like down south and in Scotland where masts are not allowed to be built until they can prove they are safe.”

Backing the residents in their campaign and taking part in the protest was Sinn Féin councillor Tierna Cunningham, who said the people of the Cavehill Road had her party’s full support in their fight.

“I pledge my support and the support of Sinn Féin to this campaign because we oppose the building of these masts in residential areas. Health is at the forefront of this campaign and we are totally opposed to the building of this mast beside schools and shops.

“I will be lobbying the Council for the setting up of exclusion zones. There are already four masts in this area and we do not need or want any more. This is only the start of the campaign but we are determined to make sure it will be successful,” she said.

A spokesman for the Planning Service confirmed that permission had been granted for a mast on the site under the now defunct ‘prior approval’ scheme. But he said officials were currently investigating whether a new planning application was required because the agent dealing for ‘3’ requested moving the mast by 60 cm to avoid pipes that have recently been laid. “The planning service has recently received correspondence from the agent advising that the mast needs to be moved by approx 60cms and seeking clarification whether or not a planning application is required. The matter is currently under consideration.”

No one from the phone company was available for comment.

Das Ende der Belastbarkeit, wie viel verträgt der Mensch?

Umwelttag des Vereins zur Hilfe umweltbedingt Erkrankter e.V. So, den 23. Juli 2006 in Nürnberg „Das Ende der Belastbarkeit – wie viel verträgt der Mensch?“


Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

der vor einem Jahr gegründete Verein veranstaltet am 23. Juli seine erste Tagung, zu der ich auch Sie herzlich einladen möchte. Es geht uns primär darum, die neuesten umweltmedizinischen Erkenntnisse weiter zu verbreiten, als dies bisher der Fall ist. Mit Sicherheit haben auch Sie die Erfahrung gemacht, dass Umweltthemen nicht so ohne weiteres in die Öffentlichkeit zu bringen sind – und doch hängt es von einer flächendeckenden Verbreitung ab, ob wir in den nächsten Jahren einen Prozentsatz an Erkrankten haben werden wie z.B. in den USA (ca. 15 %).

Mit unserer Veranstaltung – siehe beiliegendes Programm – wollen wir Zeichen setzen: für mehr Aufklärung, für mehr Verständnis der Wechselwirkungen verschiedener Einflüsse, für die Thematisierung eines „Tabuthemas“ und für mehr Kooperation untereinander.

Es würde uns sehr freuen, wenn Sie sich mit unserer Arbeit identifizieren können und an unserer Tagung teilnehmen, denn ohne Solidarität wird es nicht möglich sein, viel für eine gesündere Zukunft und Umwelt zu bewegen.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Muskogee, Oklahoma Grand Jury Impeachment

From: Jane Swartley
Date: Mon May 29, 2006 11:38am(PDT)
Subject: Muskogee impeachment Grand Jury

Muskogee, Oklahoma Grand Jury Impeachment News

Over the next few weeks, our goal is to not only get the Muskogee Grand Jury Impanelment petition signed but also to promote this countermovement in the major media and political circles of our country and the world.

There is only one way to stop the Bush-Cheney movement cold in its tracks, and that is by influencing public opinion and applying pressure. It is not unnoticed by us that we have several months before the off-year congressional elections and this target is as important as the main goal. We have had to take action as a population because the judicial and congressional elements in our government have been ineffective -- and, worse, seem to be part of this movement to seize the country into control by the powerful, and to h... with the people.

It must be stopped, and we can do it. Go here and read; and please help us in this countermovement.

More about the Muskogee Grand Jury proposal:
(posted in numerous Oklahoma newspapers last week)

As you probably know, only two states in the union have a constitutional provision allowing empanelment of a grand jury on the strength of the requisite number of petition signatories from the registered voters in a given county of the respective state.

One of these states is New Mexico; the other happens to be your state, Oklahoma.

Between now and the November 2006 election cycle, you and a handful of volunteer assistants have the opportunity to gather the several hundred signatures needed for presentment to the selected court-of-record there in your county -- a court that would have no recourse but to empanel the sought-for state grand jury to investigate, and report upon, the alleged criminal activity of Bush-Cheney (e.g., lying to the public re Iraqnam, and waging warrantless wiretapping of U. S. citizens on American soil).

The resulting report could serve as an impetus for Congress to expedite its oversight power and investigatory role into how (and why) the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld regime has undermined the governmental security and constitutional protections afforded Oklahomans and all other Americans.

Of course, the empaneled grand jury would have no authority to subpoena relevant testimony or other evidence from federal officials, but it could (and should) INVITE formal submission of such evidence. Presumably, this call for evidence would smoke out some additional whistleblowers as to official, presidential wrongdoing -- and facilitate "leakage" of incriminating, verifiable documentation.

As an Oklahoman empowered by your state's constitution, you occupy a potential, historic turning point in our nation's growing demand for accountability on the part of Bush-Cheney. If you, and/or someone you know, can accept this challenge, please let me know whether you'd like for me to draft the proposed petition-for-empanelment.

As I await your response, by all means feel free to e-circulate and Internet-post the contents of this letter. Who knows: maybe someone in New Mexico might like to pursue this proposal in his/her county.

Tell the Navy to stop harming whales with high-intensity sonar

//www.nrdcaction.org/action/index.asp?step=2&item=52189

Although the Navy agreed to limit its use of low-frequency sonar, it continues to blast the world's oceans with mid-frequency sonar, which can be just as harmful to whales and other marine mammals. Tell the Navy to turn off the noise.
