Michael Stav, Mullumbimby

I would like to congratulate all who were responsible for putting up the Mullumbimby Gateway’s new totem pole.

It’s a great place to rest with a beautiful presentation respecting the origins of Mullumbimby and the spirit of the Aboriginal traditional custodians of this area.

I’d encourage everyone to pay it a visit. You will feel proud and lucky to be here.

I was then struck by how opposite the spirit is from what Telstra is trying to do to Mullum with its plans for 5G.

The totem should encourage all public servants to preserve the 5G-free aspects of Mullumbimby.

The shire is already a test case for a fluoride-free public water supply.

We should continue in that spirit as a 5G-free community, to see if we can survive, and indeed thrive, with the lack of both.

Please Telstra, visit the totem and pick on somebody else.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. what the hell is it with these 5G lunatics – when did people stop going to school and get their education from facebook instead?
    Totem pole is nice though.

  2. Dam right Robert. Hatebook is only making people more and more stupid everyday. We need to somehow get folks learning again about the world around them and not spending all day in their device driven rage bubbles. 5g nutters need to learn up on the electromagetic spectrum. I don’t see them complaining about tv and radio waves which are vastly higher wattage, and still harmless.
