Portland Officials Attempt to Block 5G

US news outlets have reported opposition by city officials in Portland to 5G on health grounds.

Legacy news sites including MSN and Fox and independents such as prepforthat.com are reporting the growing opposition to 5G.

It’s heartening to witness officialdom taking the dangers of this technology seriously, and good to see the issue being raised across the media spectrum.

Such examples need to be brought to the attention of our own “authorities” as part of our fight here against the dread abomination.

Portland, Oregon city officials are setting up to run opposition to the installation of 5G networks around the city. The initiative is supported by Mayor Ted Wheeler and two commissioners, Amanda Fritz, and Chloe Eudaly. The city feels that 5G health risks are not well enough understood to warrant installations. Additionally, the federal government’s issues with telecommunications rules influenced the opposition movement.

KATU News reported that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided to impose new restrictions over how cities are allowed to manage transmitters that reside on city property. They also put a $270 limit on franchise fees. Typically, cities charge $3,000 in fees. According to Wheeler, the disparity in fee acquisition could cost his city almost $10 million dollars, a loss he’s not willing to accept. In KATU’s report, Wheeler calls the new FCC rules, “something of a land grab against local infrastructures, like telephone poles, where these wireless nodes will be connected.”
