DOPO 6 ANNI! STAZIONE RADIOBASE RIMOSSA A CITTÀ DEL CAPO, SUDAFRICA.
Gli abitanti di Forest Glade, un piccolo sobborgo in cui la vita non è cambiata molto dopo la fine dell'apartheid, si sono rifiutati di cedere la loro autonomia al settore wireless e ora possono rivendicare la vittoria dopo una dura battaglia.
Alcuni giorni fa l'American Tower Corporation è stata finalmente costretta a rimuovere una torre cellulare, a pochi metri da dove i bambini vivono e giocano.
A nome del Dr. Gavin Davis e della gente di Forest Glade, il mio sentito ringraziamento a Theodora Scarato - Environmental Health Trust, per aver descritto questa storia che scalda il cuore - il link fornito.

Johannesburg faces a possible class action
lawsuit over residents’ smart meter woes‚ the Democratic warned Alliance
“The installation of smart meters‚ which is causing havoc with electricity bills all across Johannesburg‚ must be stopped until a reputable authority can verify the devices and the process‚” the party’s caucus leader‚ Councillor Vasco Da Gama‚ said. He said angry residents had been receiving “hugely inflated bills”‚ which could be attributed to the not being “properly calibrated‚ resulting in erratic readings”. “In addition‚ smart meter readings rely on cellphone signals‚ which is problematic because in some parts of the city‚ signals from the different networks are not always strong enough‚ resulting in makeshift solutions‚” said Da Gama. “These smart meters should have approval from the South African Bureau of Standards and the National Energy Regulator of SA.” Da Gama criticised the city’s reaction in Mayibuye in
where “newly installed smart meters have been removed after community uproar”. “City Power bridged the system for residents
to receive electricity‚ which is unmetered and free of charge until other
arrangements are made‚” said Da Gama‚ adding that this was no solution. Da Gama said the issue of legal action had
been raised by residents and engineersm and that he “was seeking further expert
advice on this route”. “But there can be
no doubt that the people are angry”. Ivory Park
