Drug and firearm offences – Tweed Heads

Police say a man has appeared in court after allegedly being found in possession of firearms, drugs and nearly $10,000 cash in Tweed Heads.

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[of the class action lawsuit] is not to curtail useful technology, but rather prompt a comprehensive overhaul of outdated EMR safety standards so as to incorporate the full gamut of scientific evidence, as well as the true meaning of the internationally mandated “precautionary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

Empowerment

‘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 www.ecsfr.com.au.
