Vandaag hebben verschillende TV programma's in Frankrijk gerapporteerd over de ongebruikelijke ommekeer in de publieke opinie in Frankrijk tegen zendmasten voor mobiele telefonie. Opmerkelijk is dat veel burgemeesters hun standpunt wijzigen en nu met de burgers strijden tegen de providers. Zo was er vanochtend op de belangrijkste publieke zender France 2 een interview met de burgemeester van Chevreuse die vertelde dat de stad begin maart een zaak had aangespannen tegen Orange.
Op 26 maart is er in Frankrijk crisisberaad op ministerieel niveau over dit onderwerp.

This Friday 20 March 2009, many TV channels have reported on the unusual reversal of public opinion that is being expressed in France against relay antennas. The real novelty in the situation, which is not entirely unexpected, is that the mayors of certain towns and cities who until now have been waiting to see which way the wind blows, or have even opposed local residents' action groups, are now taking sides with them against the mobile phone networks.

This morning the viewers of France 2, the main state channel, were able to watch a live interview with Claude Génot, the mayor of Chevreuse, who explained that in early March 2009 the town had brought a case against the phone operator Orange.

This statement is even more surprising in that residents' groups in the town have been campaigning for years and the town council has until now positioned itself in line with the government recommendations, which favour the mobile phone companies.
The crisis meeting of ministers with the phone companies scheduled for 26 March will change nothing in the face of the determination of residents' groups and of members of the public who want to see the mobile phone system made compatible with human health, in accordance with the conclusions of the report of the BioInitiative scientific consortium.
In addition the latest proposals announced by the government, such as prohibiting mobile phones for the under 6s, are considered scandalous.
