5G - Senator Patrick Colbeck telling the truth about 5G - PLEASE do your own research

Stopping 5G in the Blue Mountains until it is proven to be safe for people and the environment.

More and more research is piling up about the dangers of this new technology that operates on a microwave frequency. From the US Govt National Toxicology Program 10 year study that has drawn a definite link between high 2 and 3 g phone use and cancer,(and 5g is much more intense) to the outdated ARPANSA Austrtalian standards based on US standards set in the 90's, to the Academics, Doctors and Scientists speaking out(180 Doctors and Scientists recently approached the European Commission to try and stop it) to the high exposure/danger to birds, bees and vulnerable people like children, elderly and homeless. Even further to the likely real estate drops if a home is next to a new tower (who will want to buy a home next to a microwave radiating tower - they are likely to be installed every 200m in residential areas, ie at best, you will be 100m away from one) . We should all be concerned. The Mayor has done a Mayoral Minute highlighting our concerns (Meeting 29/1/19) and whilst we thank him, we are frankly disappointed as it has not gone far enough. Please sign this petition and look at the links to get up to speed https://www.change.org/p/susan-templeman-mark-greenhill-no-5g-in-the-world-heritage-blue-mountains. We aim to update you as to which Councillors are working to protect you and your family and which are not.

Stopping Joy Flights over the Upper Mountains 

These need to be stopped. Vested Rich Business Interests should never take priority over residents.

Warragamba Dam Raising

The proposed airport at Badgerys Creek. It is ridiculous to have planes flying over a World Heritage area for a number of reasons. Safety, Tourism, World Heritage Status, Impeding work to control bushfires (ie potentially conflicting with helicopters and planes in fighting bush fires). Full Credit to Mark Greenhill, Annette Bennett and Romola Hollywood for the work they are doing to stop this insanity.

A Campaign largely run by local Mountains youth to stop Sydney City Council from heartlessly removing tents from homeless people  www.pleasehelpourhomeless.com

The huge debt of Blue Mountains Council. Due to it ballooning hugely, a process ensued that resulted in rates being increased by 40% over four years. The debt has come down from over 52 million to around 47 million but it appears this is also due to selling off assets. Rate payers have had to bear the brunt of a 40% increase in rates to pay for this overspending. There are remours that the Council is looking at charging more for rubbish fees. If that is the case, it is outrageous.

"Ward Four Councillor Brendan Christie said that he holds "grave concerns if IPART approves the 40.4 percent rate rise."

"Young families and pensioners will be hit hardest and struggle as is with cost of living pressures," he said. "No one will be spared from the rate increase, including our already struggling small businesses."

He has previously argued that the Council's consultation process did not properly canvass the community's views."

It was approved the next year so ratepayers now will pay the increase.
