SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Our Funding Goal: $ 100,000

Donations: Please make your check or money order payable to National Institute for Science, Law, and Public Policy, designated for "SAFE G/Community Empowerment Initiative". You can contribute in two ways.

Healthy Heavens Trust Initiative (HHTI)

Halting the Assault by 50,000+ 5G/6G+ Satellites

EPIC STORY: Humankind stands at a precipice from which there will be no return: A Great 21st Century Space Rush is now underway by commercial enterprises and the military, fomented and enabled in the U.S. by the FCC and other U.S. government agencies to grab, deploy, transform, and own the Heavens for private gain, defense, and weaponization. Over the next 10 years 50,000+ non-stationary low orbit satellites will be launched and seamlessly integrated in terrestrial 4G/5G/6G+ industrial and military networks (“Space Fence”). Scores of new satellites are being launched every week from the U.S. and other countries.

Since the beginnings of our time on earth we humans, and perhaps other species, have revered the skies. The Heavens are the spiritual wellspring of many cultures. This accelerating human-caused catastrophe will substantially compound the existing biological and environmental harms of 4G/5G/6G non-ionizing electromagnetic (RF and embedded ELF (extremely low frequencies), enable remote manipulation of biological systems, further erode personal privacy, expand government surveillance, present new risks of satellite collisions, interfere with meteorological prediction and astronomical research, litter the skies with satellite debris, and endanger national and global security.

The Heavens must belong to no one. Quite the opposite, numerous international treaties, conventions, and other legally enforceable commitments affirm they are held in Public Trust for all of humanity and the living world. Nations and people everywhere are the fiduciaries of this Public Trust. They possess the legal means and the power to ensure that the exploration of this new frontier, the Heavens, if it must proceed, is approached with humility and wisdom.

Restoring Balance to the Satellite Program

Mission: To require the FCC and other federal agencies to follow established principles and procedures that are well-recognized by international treaty, the U.S. Constitution, federal statutes, state laws and local ordinances–—now even more relevant and critical during a national corona emergency—  to carefully assess all risks, costs, and viable alternatives before permitting the implementation of a blanket license of 1 million earth stations and accelerating the launch of 50,000-100,000 satellites.

Goals:

  • Establish a detailed record of abuse of authority, arbitrary and capricious actions which we will seek to reverse by an appeal to the DC Circuit;
  • Broadly expose that fact this extraordinarily reckless program is being allowed by the FCC without requiring SpaceX and other satellite companies to certify insurance or contractual indemnification;
  • Require the FCC to assess the health and environmental impacts of the whole satellite/terrestrial base station program;
  • Introduce new metrics and methodologies drawn from spectrum management technologies to measure RFR/magnetic field interference on biological organisms and systems;
  • Initiate a long overdue process of interagency consultation and review, supporting other federal agencies to push back on FCC encroachment of their own jurisdictions, missions, and prerogatives. Begin with a Petition for Rulemaking to the FDA.

Protect Local Community Health—To condition the location and deployment of the licensed earth stations on a full assessment and mitigation plan that addresses all foreseeable and preventable harms to the health and wellbeing of local communities throughout the U.S.

Preserve the Public Trust in the Heavens from Commercial Exploitation—To require the FCC to develop principled rule making in the launch and deployment of 50,000-100,000 satellites taking account of the high probability of harms to the health of millions of people around the world, the further despoliation of the planetary environment, the risks and damages from collisions, interference with weather prediction, and astronomical research, the exorbitant costs and financial risks of past failed similar attempts, and the distinct possibility of exposing the U.S. to $ billions in legal liability resulting from lawsuits filed by injured parties in other countries.

Safeguard National Security—To compel a careful re-examination of the national security risks of over-reliance on a 5G/wireless infrastructure when a viable, safer, more secure, energy efficient, job generating, and vastly less expensive alternative– optical fiber wired infrastructure— is readily available and has already been paid for by taxpayers and ratepayers.

Case Docket

Administrative Challenges on Satellites and Other Matters

Case Docket. To date the BALANCE GROUP and Swankin & Turner have initiated the following actions with the FCC:

Comments in response to FCC request on modification of current RFR health standards (filed June 17, 2020)

  • Amicus Brief on behalf of the Building Biology Institute in Children’s Health Defense and Environmental Health Trust v. FCC (June 2020)
  • Opposition to SpaceX request to launch 30,000 new satellites (July 2020)
  • Petition for Rulemaking to the FCC to require full and complete compliance with NEPA and other federal statutes, and the adoption and expedited implementation of specific protective rules in consultation with other government agencies. (July/August 2020)
  • Petition for Rulemaking to the FDA to develop safe health standards and science-based rules for RFR public and occupational exposure in collaboration with the FCC (July/August 2020)

5G*International Legal Action Network. We have established a Collaborative Learning and Action Network of leading attorneys who have pledged to take concerted action to rebalance the 5G/AI/IoT/Satellite Juggernaut in their own countries and regions and internationally. Thus far we have had ZOOM calls with an average of about thirty participants. ILAN lawyers are currently preparing a lawsuit challenging the European Council’s policy statement to criminalize “false claims” challenging the “safety” of 5G*ILAN members believe the European Council’s action will have a profoundly chilling effect on freedom of expression not only in Europe but also in the U.S. and other countries. A legal action is being prepared for filing in the European Court of Human Rights, based on various European and international human rights conventions.
