Radiation Limits for MassTech!
For check writing instructions, please see the petition page at https://LastTreeLaws.com or scroll to bottom for direct link.
MASS. VOTERS MUST PASS LEGISLATION FOR HEALTHIER TECH!
Industry has pushed antennas into neighborhoods, nurseries, cars, and everywhere else despite substantial, reputable research showing harm. Voters can and must pass state legislation to limit this radiation because the Big Tech has failed to act.
BECAUSE BIG TECH IGNORES RESPONSIBILITY, WE NEED REGS!
As Dr. Paul Heroux and other scientists have explained, to prevent rising cancer rates & other problems (neurological, reproductive, etc.), we need to progressively clean our environment of wireless & other tech radiation, not augment with 5G or 6G. Many experts say the same, including former US NIEHS leaders. Big Tech has simply been weaving a web to deny science.
Many other countries already do more than us to limit non-ionizing radiation like wireless and electricity, with tech-advanced Israel, Cyprus, and France limiting school exposures to protect youth.
AN INITIATIVE PETITION FOR A BALLOT QUESTION IS OUR BEST CHANCE
Because the Massachusetts legislature, among the least transparent in America, has failed to bring protective legislation to the floor for a vote despite hearings and good legislation with backing from representatives and senators, we need your help to bypass the legislature and convince voters to support change.
If in 2023 enough Massachusetts voter signatures are gathered, the legislature would have to vote on whether to pass the legislation in early 2024. If it doesn't pass, voters would then decide in the fall.
The judicial system is another option, but is also a gamble as seen in federal decisions which swing from protecting industry and agencies to protecting people.
WE CAN BEAT BIG TECH WITH YOU!
We can prepare legislation, but we need you -- your financial and volunteer support -- to know we have the members and funds to make this pursuit worthwhile. We do need funds. For example, campaign software to organize volunteers is several thousand dollars, not to mention the time for training and learning how to use the software. This is one of the reasons we need funds now and we will set monthly goals.
We also ask that you help publicize and that you ask 9 more Mass. voters to join this fight using our materials and those further below, because you can reach people who don't read the local paper, bypass problematic search algorithms, and persuade in person. You can help swing public opinion.
WHAT WOULD THE PROPOSED LAW ENTAIL?
We submitted a proposal for a ballot question in 2022 that would serve as a framework for 2023, but ideally we plan to do more, with attention to what voters will pass. The following was approved for content when submitted in 2022:
- require tech design that makes turning off or limiting wireless easy;
- require tech design that limits all kinds of incidental non-ionizing radiation;
- make information on wireless facilities (e.g. cell towers) readily accessible to the public;
- require the Massachusetts telecommunications department adopt technologies that best reduce non-ionizing radiation;
- make it much easier to sue and penalize wireless corporations for failing to protect us;
- establish a commission of first responders and others to examine how best to protect them, while maintaining needed services;
- exposure limits on wireless facility (e.g. cell towers ) to be as safe and minimal as possible for wireless service; and
- steps to hard-wire and limit exposures in certain public anchor institutions.
In 2022 our proposed petition for a ballot question was approved for the above content, but was denied certification based on a few paragraphs on disease investigation considered outside the scope of tech radiation (see response here). To move forward in 2023, we will submit a version of the petition that fixes this section. Several excerpts of the 2022 text, which may be revised, are posted online at Beatty.fyi with comments currently allowed.
