Roy remember Sullivan Heights School? Here are the lastest results of a battle to stop children from being fried by microwave near schools in BC Canada.
A information meeting at the school,earlier in the year, which was attended by Mary McBride of BC Cancer Agency,who told the people,in attendance, that there are no known health effects from cellphone towers,did not convince the people,and as a result the pressure from the students,teachers,and the Parent Advisory Council was enough to dissolve the 20 year contract to place antenna's on the school roof, that had been signed by the school, with the cellphone company. A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
It was just today June 17, 2003, that my fax received a copy of a letter sent to Sullivan Heights PAC regarding Resolution #7, Prohibiting the Siting of Cellular Phone Masts or Antennae on School Buildings and School Grounds.
This resolution was passed by the 2,500 Parent Advisory Councils [Known as PTAs in the United States] in British Columbia, Canada at their Annual General Meeting. It puts a moratorium on cell towers near or on schools throughout our entire province. Our next step is to get those few antennae, which were erected before parents got wise, removed.
This should set a precedent throughout Canada and the rest of the world. If the health and well-being of our kids aren't important, what is?
Plug pulled on Sullivan Heights cell tower
By Sheila Reynolds
A cellular transmission antenna will not be installed atop Sullivan Heights Secondary, following a last-minute offer from Rogers Wireless on Thursday to mutually dissolve its contract with the Surrey School District.
"I'm very relieved," said mom Liz Walker, who planned to transfer her two sons from the Newton-area school if the tower went up. "I was going in today to get my transfer forms."
The matter raised the ire of many parents, students and teachers at the school, who were angry they weren't consulted about the deal, and who were concerned about potential health risks stemming from electromagnetic emissions.
The district signed the agreement with Rogers in November 2001 and was initially planning to install the small antenna on top of the 50-foot theatre at the school earlier this year. Rogers would have paid $180,000 over 15 years.
"This is the ideal outcome, really," said Trustee Mary Polak. "I don't think we could have envisioned better." She said dissolving the contract will result in a minimal cost to the district estimated in the neighbourhood of $15,000 to cover Rogers' costs to date.
Walker, who spearheaded many of the protests, was pleased trustees made what she felt was the right decision, restoring her faith in the school board. "I know they have gone to bat for parents in the past, and I couldn't understand why they wouldn't this time," Walker said. Still, she said she'll continue to push for a district-wide moratorium on cell transmission towers. "It was a long, hard fight for us at this school," she said. "I don't want to see other parents having to go through what we did."
Swiss court says mobile phone antenna's must go. Renters get 30% reduction.
Geneva, Switzerland Jan 2001
- The Department of Justice, Police and Transport in the Canton of Geneva Switzerland ruled the following:
Renters within 11 high-rise apartment (flats) buildings, which are surrounding a mobile base station and having roof mounted mobile phone antennas from the swiss mobile operator DIAX, are entitled to a 30% rental reduction back dated to 1st Jan 1999. This reduction will also continue until the antenna's have been removed.
- As Geneva has relatively high rental costs this decision could well
lead to several millions of Swiss Francs in lost income for landlords, who gave permission to build the antenna's.
- DIAX was instructed to immediately turn off and remove the antenna's after that 13 medical certificates reflecting health problems were presented. It is worth considering that, although Switzerland has one of the lowest allowable emission regulations, people still became ill.
- If this case (no C-20879-2000-CG-A) is supported by the Bundesgericht "Federal courts" you may wonder what will happen to the mobile phone communications. DIAX and Landlords are said to be appealing to the courts.

EHS sufferers in own case
EHS sufferers in own case and the reason and dedication for our daily work for the youth and our co-sufferers around the world. We can feel and know exactly under what unbearable circumstances so much people suffering day by day in the world. It has to be stopped immediately.
From KLAUS RUDOLPH spokesman of C.I.O.(Citizens Initiative Omega), Germany.
See C.I.O. newsletter
We feel that our lives are in danger
We live at a distance of about 300 meters of 4 mobile phone antennas at the water reservoir in Schöllbronn in D-76275 Ettlingen. The units were constructed in a short time, beginning in February of 2000.
With the erection of the mobile radio-units, we experienced a terrible change in our health.
Insomnia, dizziness, muscle cramps, cardiac arrhythmia, nightly sweating and freezing, trembling of the entire body are only some of the ill-effects my wife and I have experienced since the erection of these masts. In addition, I developed fibromyalgia and ringing in my ears from the mobile radio.
Because of the radiation of the mobile radio-unit my wife started having frequent epileptic seizures and also developed vertigo.
We are both for some time now too incapacitated to work. Sometimes we do not know how we can possibly go on living. We feel that our lives are in danger and we have to leave our house which we have rented for the last 8 years, because we can not pay the rent anymore and we have many debts. We don't know where to go, because all over there are these antennas and mobile phones.
Repeatedly we learn that other citizens are concerned in a similar manner to us. All our efforts to persuade the operators to dismantle the mobile radio units or to move them elsewhere failed. So did the lawsuits we undertook to force the mobile phone operators to end their health-destructive work. The many forms of shielding we tried to protect ourselves cost a lot of money and didn’t work either.
There is little or no help from anybody, although our story is well known in Germany and elsewhere. And there are many similar cases to ours in Germany and around the world.
There should be funds and places for us tortured victims, but nobody seems to care, especially our governments and the mobile phone industry which is responsible for damaging us.
Klaus and Gabi Rudolph, Germany.
Thank's Imelda for your support and that you urged me to publish this statement for the common cause of all people suffering under mobile phone radiation.
Cell Slayer Home
Kirk Wines has been the Medina City Attorney for over twenty-five years. As such, he was unwittingly drawn into his first cell tower disputes. The first case filed under the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was against the City of Medina, Washington for passing a moratorium on cell sites within the city. Kirk successfully defended that action and a subsequent series of actions filed in Federal Court by Sprint Spectrum alleging that the city was obligated to allow Sprint to erect a 100 foot monopole tower with a ring of panel antennas at the top within the midst of a densely developed neighborhood. For more information on this particular case, see The Medina Experience ( http://www.cellslayer.com/medina.htm).
As a result of the successful conclusion of the above referenced matters, Kirk has represented a number of private citizens and neighborhood groups fighting to protect their property values by keeping unsightly cell towers out of their neighborhoods. He has participated as a witness and an attorney before hearing examiners throughout the Greater Seattle / King County area. He has spoken at seminars for city officials, city attorneys, attorneys in general practice and at a convention for one of the major provider's siting employees. He has represented neighborhood groups in state courts. He has also testified and/or lobbied on wireless issues before the King County Council and the Washington State Legislature.
