Activist Support

This page has been written for people who want to do something about the electrical pollution, for example when a community is facing a new cell tower or wi-fi proposal.  For info on opposing smart utility meters go here: http://emfsafetynetwork.org/action-now/

Engage the community

Talk to people. Make and handout flyers. When people don’t know about an issue a flyer is the best tool for educating.

Start a petition, collect signatures on paper and circulate the petition online. I recommend Change.org because it allows you to email signers and keep them informed.  Starting a petition in a school setting might not be advised however.

Write a letter to the editor and include the link to the online petition. Also post to local online bulletin boards or discussion lists.

Consider a protest or demonstration. Ashby McGowan from Scotland shares her thoughts about the importance of protests. Taking Action Against Mobile Phone Transmitters

Even two people can make a big difference and as you put the word out more people will join.

Use social media

Start your own blog- I recommend using wordpress. Twitter and Facebook are excellent tools to educate.  It does not have to take a lot of time.

Keep people informed

Start an EMF contact list and keep people informed of EMF news. Sign up for our email list and share the information with your contacts.

Tips for educating a council or board

  •  Sign up ten people to speak at the council or board meeting when topic is on meeting agenda, including doctors. (Asking by phone call is more effective than email.)
  •  Present the science. Send via email, give them hard copies and speak about it.
  •  They need to feel good about their choice- help them to feel good about it!
  •  Meet individually with council or board members.
  •  Be respectful, focus on education.
  • For a general overview of planning issues read: ElectroSmog-What Price Convenience?
