I don't live there, but I'd go along. Just to add to the following meetings I have been to:

 

  • Anti vax meeting
  • Flat Earth Society
  • Chemtrailers
  • Anti 4G brigade
  • Anti 3G brigade
  • Anti Cellular phone brigade
  • No smart meters
  • No smart water meters
  • I stand in front of the microwave Anonymous

I think I saw the Anti 3G people at the Anti 4G meeting, so I'll probably see the same people at the 5G one.. Unless the chemtrails got to them and forced them to stand in front of the microwave and are now buried in the flat earth.

 

 

haven't been to the "global warming is fake club" yet then ?

I think you people are being far too judgemental. Mavis from next door has told me that 5G signals vibrate at a much higher frequency than 4G signals, and that can lead to serious health problems such as autism.

So at work today I installed another 60ad link (60GHz) one of the local staff asked what it was, I said it was a 5G AP, (in jest) they hit the roof, I quickly fled the scene.

I've got a 5G(hz) AP in the house. Maybe that's why my hair is falling out.

My hairdresser was seriously concerned about the terrible things people were saying 5G would do.... she felt better after I explained we have no credible evidence or mechanism that non-ionizing radiation in those frequency bands and power levels does anything beyond minor heating. I explained that the oxidizing properties of many of the chemicals she used did have known harmful effects (but small), and that the sun has proven cancer causing effects that these people should be far more concerned about.

 

So sometimes can reason.

A really interesting podcast on 5G:

 

 

Also, I have literally been banned from every Anti 5G group. The Anti 5G people meet just around the corner of my house at the library and my partner has forbidden me from attending. May have to get @bartender to attend on behalf.

It will give some women a natural perm right after your hairdresser has straightened their hair.

You should stop listening to talkback.

Humbugs, your brains are all fried on fluoride and vaccines. 

 

Feel free to soak up all that 5g radiation  --- a bit more frying can't hurt, right? 

 

Speaking of which, I must get my microwave radiation tested.

i have been keeping an eye on this across the different facebook groups. its rather funny some of them. they will talk about how every new led street light is 5g. they watch this one video by mark steele and they become experts on 5g. 

 

 

 

 

 

they had a meeting out in titarangi the other week to watch some film. funny thing is there is a vf site in the same building. i didnt have the heart to tell them. 

 

 

 

they also had a protest outside vf hq the other week and were live streaming it to fb...........need i say more. 

 

 

 

 

 

the problem i have with the anti 5g ppl is they are taking any post someone posts to the pages as truth. 

 

 

 

also spark have 5g set up for etnz in akl running at 3.5ghz as its an extension of their trail licence with RSM

Good timing; I was about to post a link to the same podcast (but wouldn't have known how to embed it!) - it provides an easy to understand and digest coverage of the topic, so would certainly be useful for many who don't know anything about it.

 

The problem is many of those actively involved in the 'movement' are unlikely to listen or engage on the evidence, given they believe that they are fully informed, and of course the MSM etc are engaged in spreading fake news...

I still remember a story from around 10 years or so ago of a woman in Titahi Bay who kept protesting about new cellsites in Titahi Bay. She claimed she chose to live there because all the power cables were underground and because their were no cellsites.

 

She seemed to totally overlook the (at the time) three huge AM transmitters that overlook Titahi Bay, with the main 220m mast outputting high power AM signals that would have literally been thousands of times stronger than a low powered cellsite.
