Democracy in Defense of DNA
EON is a 501 (c) 3 organization
Recently we attended a pot-luck meeting of the Northern Bay Area Fukushima Response team. One of the members asked how to find information about all the important and interlinked nuclear, wireless radiation and election integrity issues. “It’s certainly not being reported on in the major media,” she complained. “This is really needed information.”
We were happy to report to her that our work here at EON, through our blogs, YouTube videos and documentary production, is doing just that.
We thank all of you who've generously given us support and for wanting and acting on the news we share!
EON reports on, supports and participates in three crucial movements of our time:
- For cell phone and wireless radiation safety
- For abolishing nuclear power and nuclear weapons and dealing responsibly with their radioactive waste
- For Election Protection, or Electoral Integrity. Without repairing our corrupted and hijacked voting system, even an informed public can’t establish democratic policies on the other two issues, or on any issue.
EMR, electro-magnetic radiation (non-ionizing) from cell phones, wi-fi, etc.; and ionizing radiation from nuclear pollution can irreversibly damage the DNA of humans and all other living beings.
That’s why we say we work to support ‘democracy in defense of DNA.’
This year, despite Trumpism and overreaching corporate power, there's been several successes and breakthroughs. Amazing folks in both the EMR safety and awareness movement and in the anti-nuclear movement achieved wins.
We're still on the edge of the precipice with the telecommunications industry push to densify EMR in our neighborhoods and in the push to move lethal radioactive waste onto the beach at San Onofre and onto the highways, railways and waters towards New Mexico. Not to mention Trump's nuclear saber rattling against North Korea and Iran.
But, as we end 2017, we want to credit the intense efforts of some of the many people who've nevertheless achieved important accomplishments.
On the EMR front:
- The VETO was signed by Gov. Brown of SB 649, a blatant attempt by the telecommunications industry to subvert state and local control of telecom technology. This bill would have given a rubber stamp for AT&T and Verizon to install powerful microwave emitting antennas every couple of hundred feet along streets on any light pole, telephone pole, etc. In addition to holding meetings, giving radio interviews, writing articles and testifying in Sacramento, EON partnered with EMFSafetyNetwork and prize-winning cartoonist Brian Narelle to design and produce a postcard that many thousands of people sent to the Governor’s office. A growing alliance of committed allies throughout the state worked ceaselessly to block this bill.
