Deutsche Wissenschaftler schließen sich zum Mobilfunkprotest zusammen

Kompetenzinitiative lädt zur Pressekonferenz


Deutsche Wissenschaftler schließen sich zum Mobilfunkprotest zusammen

Im März 2007 haben sich bundesweit zahlreiche, derzeit 68 namhafte Wissenschaftler, Ärzte, Techniker, Professoren und umweltengagierte Vereinigungen in einer interdisziplinären Kompetenzinitiative zum Schutz von Mensch, Umwelt und Demokratie zusammengeschlossen. Anlass war der nicht mehr zu verantwortende Umgang von Politik und Wissenschaft mit dem Thema Mobilfunk. Ihre Homepage . Der Presse war dies keine Zeile Wert. Widerstand ist überall – er wird totgeschweigen. Dass es tausende Bürgerinitiativen gegen Mobilfunkmasten in Deutschland gibt, hunderte Protestveranstaltungen stattfinden, das sollen die Menschen nicht erfahren. Es gibt eine Pressesperre, wie der Journalist Uwe Krüger [üger ] aufdeckte. Hier ein zufällig beim Surfen gefundenes Beispiel aus einem kleinen Ort am Main: 500 Menschen kommen in Mechenhard auf eine Protestversammlung.

US Law in the Balance

by Niki Raapana

Widespread ignorance of communitarianism and denial of the existence of an emerging global legal system has allowed every program necessary to achieve full implementation, unhindered by press or public scrutiny. The vast majority of citizens of the United States do not know what it means when their legislatures say they are "balancing" their laws. They never question why there must be a balance between individual rights and community rights.......

Bees give mobile phone firm the wrong buzz

PLANS to put a mobile phone mast on a busy Eastbourne roundabout have been shelved — because of a possible threat to bees.

Fears that the controversial masts are wiping out millions of bees have hit the headlines in recent weeks.

Eastbourne planners refused rermission for one to be sited on Langney Roundabout in St Anthony's Avenue at a meeting on Tuesday night because of the scare.

T-Mobile wanted to install the 14.7 metre high mast on the roundabout at
the junction of Pevensey Bay Road and Langney Rise.

Planning officers urged councillors to approve the application saying the phone company had submitted relevant safety certificates and the nearest residential properties were 40 metres away.

But members of the planning committee said they would not grant approval for the application until conclusive evidence is found that the
masts do not harm bees.

Scientists claim phone signals from masts and phones have wiped out millions of bees.

The phone signals are thought to upset their navigation and they die of exposure after losing their sense of direction.

Up to 90 per cent of bees have been killed in some areas and a number of
hives in the South East have been reported as being deserted.

Mary Shaw of Amnesty International USA told Truthout: "The right to a fair trial is one of the universally applicable principles recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to which the US is a signatory. The US took a huge step away from this standard with the Military Commissions Act of 2006. And now the proposal to limit attorneys' access to their clients at Guantanamo Bay will further hinder detainees' rights to full equality under the law."

A honey trap set by phone masts

By Rob Devey

FEARS that radiation from phone masts is killing bees could affect decisions over the location of masts in Bolton.

Radiation from masts has been blamed for dwindling honey bee populations, with scientists claiming it interferes with the insects' navigation systems and stops them finding their way back to their hives.

Research by Landau University in Germany found that 70 per cent of bees exposed to radiation failed to find their way back to their hive after searching for pollen and nectar.

Bolton Council planners will now investigate the claims following a request at a full council meeting by Conservative planning committee member Cllr Norman Critchley.

The evidence could be used in future decisions on applications for mobile phone masts in the borough.

Cllr Critchley raised concerns about the possible loss of honey and said he had also heard that radiowaves from the masts could also affect migratory birds.

He said bees had aided the medical profession over thousands of years and honey-based dressings could help in the fight against superbug MRSA.

Cllr Ebrahim Adia, executive member for development, agreed to ask the council's planning improvement working party, made up of two councillors from each of the three parties on the council, to look into the matter.

The party meets quarterly to look at improvements to the planning system.

Cllr Adia said: "Our powers in relation to phone masts are somewhat limited but in spite of that, we are proud as a council to promote bio-diversity and ecology as part of the planning process."

Some beekeepers in Britain have reported losses exceeding the usual 10 per cent of colonies that die during winter.

But beekeeper, Keith Hibbert, who keeps bees in New Springs, Wigan, said he was sceptical of the phone mast claims.

Mr Hibbert, of Fallbirch Road, Horwich, said: "I have lost more bees over the winter than I would in a normal winter and I'm not quite sure why.

"But I'm not aware of any phone masts nearby and it may have been because I was away for a while and wasn't there to tend to them."
