Just before midnight last night, California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed Senate Bill 649!! As you may know, the bill was the wireless industry's dream, as it would have blocked the ability of cities and counties to control the installation of microwave radiation antennas. If this legislation had passed, it would have then opened the door for the industry to take over in other regions.

There are so many safe tech advocates who worked on this matter so diligently, from many different angles. While our movement did not yet have the resources sufficient to pull the trigger on a wide implementation of the Liability Action for California legislators, a targeted campaign was done in which legislators were provided a summary and how they will be held financially liable, should the bill pass.

Moving forward, it will be key to make sure ALL legislators realize and understand across the board that they WILL be held to account as individuals -- so that nothing like this bill can ever come close to passing again. Because, as we know, the industry is not yet ready to throw in the towel.

And, if and when the need arises, several thousand have already indicated participation interest in a Liability Action to address SB649 and or 5G deployment at the root cause of the problem. (Re-subscribe on our main page:

Below is an email update from Paul McGavin ( ), who played an instrumental role in this battle victory.

So on behalf of people everywhere, we express our sincere gratitude to Paul and the hundreds of activists and groups who led the way -- with a multitude of strategies and approaches being undertaken.

Hi, Josh et. al.

The Fat Lady finally sang -- a sweet lullaby from the new veto recording artist, Jerry Brown:

''the interest which localities have in managing rights of way requires a more balanced solution than the one achieved in this bill.''

Brown's veto message is here:

Time for a small victory lap with San Jose Mayor, Sam Liccardo . . .

Thanks to everyone that showed up and helped with this fight. Special thanks to Harry Lehmann, Bruce Kushnick and Nina Beety for their excellent, substantial analyses and to all of the scientists who are publishing the truth about the hazards of RF/MW radiation exposures.

I went to bed not knowing, but my wife woke me up and told me. This was six months of full-time effort for me. I can now resume my normal life.

I agree with Bruce, it is time to cut off the FCC, AT&T and Verizon at the knees . . .

Een onverwacht succes, de ongelimiteerde uitrol van 5G in Californië is hiermee van de baan. Het resultaat van de vele protesten. SB staat voor Senate Bill (dit was de reeds door de Senaat goedgekeurde wet, met nu een veto van de gouverneur).

Martine Vriens: met nog een slag om de arm van Dafne Tachover: ''SB649 FIGHT IS NOT OVER - Don't rest on the laurels. The Bill is now going back to the Legislature - in which a 2/3 majority in each house is needed to override the veto. While it seems unlikely that it will happen, I believe the industry may use its influence with the democratic and republican parties to get the legislators to vote for the Bill...Lobbying in the legislature should continue until the vote is over.''
