Electomagnetic radiation meeting called

Organisers of an upcoming landmark class action lawsuit against the federal government and Telstra are inviting the public to a meeting on August 4 at Mullum’s St John’s Primary School Hall from 3.30pm till 9pm.

The class action lawsuit addresses ‘those entities within government and industry seen to be failing in their duty to protect the public from harmful electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by consumer products and related infrastructure,’ say organisers.

‘If you have been considering the risks of personal exposure to EMR, and not known how to effectively respond, here is an opportunity to join forces with the first legally supported initiative of its kind. There is no requested fee for doing so since, by definition, a nationwide class action includes all non-objecting citizens of Australia.’

‘The intent [of the class action lawsuit] is not to curtail useful technology, but rather prompt a comprehensive overhaul of outdated EMR safety standards so as to incorporate the full gamut of scientific evidence, as well as the true meaning of the internationally mandated “precautionary principle”.


‘A significant part of this process involves community education and empowerment’.

Barrister Ray Broomhall from former Justice Michael Kirby’s chambers will also speak at the meeting.

‘Assisting will be a medical doctor, radiation scientists, and team of compensation and human-rights lawyers.

Timely action

‘Specific legal procedures will be presented to enable concerned  organisations and individuals to prevail over the commercial self-interest of electro-technology corporations and their government regulators.

‘This type of action is particularly timely owing to the planned 5G network that will attempt to enforce installation of many thousands of microwave transmitters throughout populated areas.’

For those who cannot attend, organisers say the event will be live streamed at

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
