Good morning neighbours in Bayview and nearby neighbourhoods,
We love our neighbourhoods. Above all, we want to keep them safe for ourselves and our loved ones. We pull together to safeguard against any threats to our safety. The 'Neighbourly' pages help us to do this, which is great. Most unwelcome threats are visible and obvious, but right now a looming threat to our health and well-being is unseen and slipping under the radar. I'm referring to the roll-out of 5G. The higher frequency radiation planned for 5G has not been well-researched for health effects on humans, wildlife and the environment. Our Ministry of Misinformation (aka Ministry of Health) is saying that existing research can be applied to 5G but this is a hugely unscientific assumption, given that the characteristics of the higher-frequency 5G radiation are markedly different from existing 3G, 4G and wi-fi.....and many independent studies have found adverse health effects from these frequencies too. Increasing numbers of New Zealanders are becoming aware of the 5G issue and demanding a Moratorium on the roll-out until thorough, independent research on health effects has been carried out. The next step in this campaign is a Protest in Auckland CBD (details attached) on Saturday January 25, as part of a National Day of Protest throughout NZ. This has been organised in support of the Global Day of Protest in more than 40 countries around the world. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Neighbours, If Auckland Transport, and maybe SkyCity had their way, the long-haul bus terminal would be re-located by this year. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei had no idea that their land was wanted. Does the terminal need a new downtown home? Read the story below:
