Hawaii’s Big Island Called Upon Telecom to Cease & Desist 5G Deployment

Hawaii’s Big Island Called Upon Telecom to Cease and Desist 5G Deployment

By: Debra Greene, PhD, Founding Director and Naomi Melamed, Hawaii Island Leader, Keep Your Power.

A resolution to cease the buildout of 5G wireless infrastructure until it can be proven safe, through independent research and testing, passed the Hawaii County Council on July 22, 2020, almost unanimously. The vote was 8-1.

The resolution, introduced by council member Matt Kaneali’i-Kleinfelder, came to the table after months of daily emails and phone calls from constituents regarding 5G. “There was overwhelming public concern,” he said. The resolution was put forth by constituents and Kaneali’i-Kleinfelder agreed to present it to the council.

In a council meeting that lasted nearly six hours, approximately 40 people waited in line to testify one-by-one in separate rooms in Hilo and Kona set-up due to COVID. Determined to have their voices heard, testifiers persevered as there is no option to testify online from home in Hawaii County, despite the recent COVID-closure of three separate testimony locations. Written testimony in support of Resolution 678-20 was overwhelming. According to the County Clerk’s Office, 650 written testimonies were submitted, almost all of which were in support of the resolution.

Council member Kanealii-Kleinfelder quoted from the Telecommunications Act of 1996, as well as Hawaii state regulations, and pointed out how both documents state that, in general, local authorities have the final say in protecting the safety of citizens with regard to telecommunications permits. He urged the Corporation Counsel to look deeper into the county jurisdiction as leverage in moving forward to protect the people.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
