What Congress Really Approved: Benchmark No. 1: Privatizing Iraq's Oil for US Companies

Retired Army Colonel Ann Wright says the supplemental bill Congress passed to continue funding the Iraq war is really about "stealing Iraq's oil - the second largest reserves in the world. The "benchmark," or goal, the Bush administration has been working on furiously since the US invaded Iraq is privatization of Iraq's oil. Now they have Congress blackmailing the Iraqi Parliament and the Iraqi people: no privatization of Iraqi oil, no reconstruction funds."

Eastleigh: Phone mast turned down

Just to let you know and pass on to those who need to know that last night the local area committee of Eastleigh Council overturned the recommendation of their officers and refused Hutchison consent for a 25 metre mast in some local woods. We got the support of our local MP, Chris Huhne, got 1200 signatures on a petition, had the local schoolchildren do posters, organised protest letters from Natural England, the Woodland Trust, the local Wildlife Trust and got help from Planning Aid, the pro bono arm of the Royal Town Planning Institute. The result was covered favourably on the late night BBC TV regional bulletin and by local radio and the local print media. It was probably more about local politics than planning law but at least we're over the first hurdle. Just thought you should know.

Suffocated by Wi-Fi electrosmog

The following item appears in June's issue of the radical activist Worthing newsletter The Porkbolter, which is an excellent mouthpiece against microwave technology. The link at the end can be used for getting stuff in future issues.

Best
gary


Suffocated by Wi-Fi electrosmog

A DANGEROUS modern "electrosmog" is putting our health and our environment at risk, it is rapidly emerging.

After the evidence in our last issue about passive mobile phone use, the national spotlight has now fallen on Wi-Fi, the microwave fields that allow people to log on to the internet without being plugged into a phone line.

Reported The Independent on Sunday (April 22): "Britain's top health protection watchdog is pressing for a formal investigation into the hazards of using wireless communication networks in schools amid mounting concern that they may be damaging children's health." It added: "Virtually no studies have been carred out into Wi-Fi's effects on pupils, but it gives off radiation similar to emissions from mobile phones and phone masts. Recent research has linked radiation from mobiles to cancer and to brain damange. And many studies have found disturbing symptoms in people near masts."

After we sent a link to this story to readers on our email list (just ask if you want to be included on it!), we had response from a woman in East Worthing. She wrote: "That's interesting about the Wi-Fi - I got a wireless set up at home about four months ago and have had to stop using it because after about 20 minutes it gives me headaches, and after that I get pins and needles in my feet and hands and I start to feel really light headed and sick. I've gone back to a wired connection. I could feel when it was on or off, even when not in the same room.

"The headache feels like there's a sort of electrical thing going on between my ears, and it's very painful between the eyes, like there's pressure building there. It's actually very similar to a problem a friend of mine had a few years ago with a Nokia phone, she had the same headaches and also a metallic taste in her mouth, when she changed phones it was OK again.

"It's a very strange thing because it's not all Wi-Fi that does this to me, I can sit in a hot spot and feel fine, but my home set up is really unpleasant, maybe because it's at such close range. I do also get the same symptoms if I visit Lyons Farm Sainsbury's so maybe there's some kind of Wi-Fi thing going on up there too - I went there a few months ago for the first time in a about a year and had to leave sharpish.

"When I can feel it, it's like the air is heavy and thick, and I find it hard to think clearly, it's quite hard to put into words. I heard on the news today that some expert is recommending that children don't hold Wi-Fi devices on their lap, there's definitely something very wrong with Wi-Fi."

Meanwhile, it has also emerged that both bees and birds are being affected by the electrosmog from mobile masts, as it is believed they use electromagnetism to navigate (Independent on Sunday, April 29). This has already led Eastbourne's council to block a new mast because of fears about the bees (IoS, May 6). Any chance that Worthing will wake up to this as well?

Have you had any experiences of Wi-Fi or other types of radiation? Let us know via porkbolter @eco-action.org or porkbolter @hushmail.com

WiFi worries scare off Londoners

I just saw this article.

Martin


//www.contractoruk.com/news/003268.html

Fears about ill-effects from using wireless internet technology have prompted an unprecedented number of Londoners to dismantle their systems.

A City-wide computer call-out service yesterday reported that almost half of its recent enquiries were from people wanting WiFi removed.

The news comes after a televised probe by the BBC found WiFi frequency radiation levels in some schools emit three times the intensity found in the main beam of mobile phone masts.

The findings, from the broadcaster’s Panorama programme, have since been disputed by leading scientists, who claim BBC journalists failed to employ a sound methodology.

Yet for the chairman of the Health Protection Agency, which reports of‘no consistent evidence’ of health risks to WiFi users, the Beeb's findings are grounds for closer scrutiny.

Sir William Stewart, a senior advisor to the government, said: "I believe that there is a need for a review of the WiFi and other areas... I think it's timely for it to be done now."

Scientists generally agree that WiFi should be safer than mobile phone radiation because WiFi devices transmit over shorter distances, and so can operate at lower power.

A survey cited by the World Health Organisation shows the RF exposures from base stations range from 0.002% to 2% of the levels of international exposure guidelines, depending on factors such as the proximity to the antenna and the surrounding area.

This is lower or comparable to RF exposures from radio or television broadcast transmitters.

However the consensus that WiFi ought to be safer than mobile phone radiation is based only on “current knowledge,” the HPA said.

The caution comes as an aggressive roll-out of the technology continues nationwide: in London, the fear of what the WHO calls ‘unknown hazards’ has compelled users to act.

” I have never seen such a reaction,” a spokesman for Scooter Computer, a PC repair service, told the Evening Standard yesterday.

“More than 40 per cent of enquiries from hundreds of customers in the last three days were from people worried about WiFi.”

Speaking before the BBC probe, the World Health Organisation cited “media announcements” about WiFi as adding to a “perception” of “undiscovered hazards.”

But it reassured: “Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak radio frequency signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.”

And the Health Protection Agency has braved a wider endorsement:” There is no consistent evidence of health effects from radio frequency exposures below guideline levels and therefore no reason why schools and others should not use WiFi equipment.”

Protection from the radiation coming from wireless equipment

Victoria Boutenko is one of the world's leading authorirties on living on raw vegan foods. She does a regular e-letter. In this month's, the following appears.

Gary.:


Radiation Protection

I would like to share with you my personal negative experience with cordless phones. Several months ago, I spent four hours participating in a teleconference using the cordless phone in my office. Later that night, as I got ready for bed, I experienced a distinct pressure inside my ear. A few days thereafter, I noticed an unusual growth on lobe of the same ear. Another week later, I happened to take part in a morning TV show directly after a professional dermatologist. I asked her about the growth which by that time had become the size of a pea, had turned red, and was painful to touch. She explained to me that a keloid scar had formed probably due to the excessive use of the wireless phone. To my dismay, she told me to immediately take out my earrings and permanently stop wearing them.

Since then I became a lot more careful. I went to store and bought two corded phones with 25 feet of additional cord, and use my cell phone only for emergencies. I am not going to get any “convenient” wireless devices for my home or office. By now, the growth on my ear is almost gone.

There is constantly more research available on the internet about the radiation these devices emit. I thought you might enjoy these pictures of what some creative Europeans are doing to protect themselves and their families from the rays coming from wireless equipment.

Why Congress Caved to Bush

By Patrick J. Buchanan

The anti-war Democrats are crying betrayal - and justifiably so. For a Democratic Congress is now voting to fully fund the war in Iraq, as demanded by President Bush, and without any timetable for a U.S. troop withdrawal. Bush got his $100 billion, then magnanimously agreed to let Democrats keep the $20 billion in pork they stuffed into the bill - to soothe the pain of their sellout of the party base.

Is Bush Leading Us to Nuclear War?

William D. Hartung and Frida Berrigan write, "The administration is building the case for war against Iran - a job made easier by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent announcement that Iran can now enrich uranium on an industrial scale - despite the fact that many Iran-watchers and nuclear experts consider their claims of enrichment capacity to be an overblown boast."

McClatchy Reporters Barred From Defense Secretary's Plane

New York staffers at McClatchy's Washington, DC Bureau - one of the few major news outlets skeptical of intelligence reports during the run-up to the war in Iraq - claim they are now being punished for that coverage. Bureau Chief John Walcott and other current and former McClatchy Pentagon correspondents say they have not been allowed on the Defense Secretary's plane for at least three years, claiming the news company is being retaliated against for its reporting.

SPD-Bundestagsfraktion soll Zeitarbeitskräfte zu Armutslöhnen beschäftigen

In der SPD-Fraktion sind laut "Spiegel" seit Jahren Zeitarbeitskräfte zu Löhnen unterhalb des vergleichbaren DGB-Tarifs beschäftigt. So arbeiten nach Informationen der Zeitschrift in der sozialdemokratischen Parlamentsvertretung vier Sekretärinnen eines Berliner Personaldienstleisters für 6,70 Euro pro Stunde. In der Probezeit erhielten sie sogar nur 6,50 Euro. Der vergleichbare Zeitarbeitstarif des DGB liegt nach Auskunft der Gewerkschaftszentrale bei 7,03 Euro. Das von der SPD beauftragte Zeitarbeitsunternehmen macht mit der Fraktion offenbar ein gutes Geschäft.
