Auckland Protest - NO 5G roll-out without adequate safety testing

Michael from Bayview

Dear fellow residents of Bayview and surrounding areas,

If you are against the roll-out of 5G without adequate research on health effects, please support the Auckland Protest tomorrow (Saturday January 25). We are meeting at 12 noon at the corner of Queen Street and Wakefield Streets in Auckland CBD, close to Aotea Square. There will be speeches, a singer/guitarist, artwork against 5G, banners and a march down Queen Street to the Viaduct.

This Auckland Protest is one of many Protests around New Zealand including Kaitaia, Whangarei, Mangawhai, Wellington, Gisborne, Christchurch, Nelson and Invercargill. Details of Protests around NZ can be found at this link: www.5g.org.nz...

The New Zealand National Day of Protest against 5G is part of the January 25 Global Day of Protest involving over 30 countries around the world.

Wondering what all the fuss is about? 5G is very different from existing 3G, 4G and wi-fi and involves higher frequency radiation. This higher frequency radiation will be beam-forming (laser-like) and will be absorbed by the skin and the eyes. The skin is not just an overcoat - it is an organ with many functions, including regulation of the immune system. Research on health effects of this type of radiation is almost non-existent. The Ministry of Health and Telcos are saying that research on existing systems (such as 3G. 4G and w-fi) can be applied to 5G. However, this is a totally unscientific assumption because the characteristics of the 5G radiation are very different from existing 3G, 4G and wi-fi.

Rolling out 5G technology that has not been adequately tested for safety is the height of irresponsibility - hence the Protests. Health must come before Profits.

Should Auckland Council execs get ATHOP cards instead of carparks?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council is looking to reduce the number of ratepayer funded carparks enjoyed by senior managers. It's down from 77 to 49. Is the council right to consider offering ATHOP cards instead? Read the story below:

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Albany

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
