CHD V. FCC Press Conference: Evidentiary Brief Filing
Join Robert F. Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense for a live, virtual press conference on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 PT to discuss this exciting milestone in our landmark case against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – the submission of the evidentiary brief. The brief was filed jointly with the Environmental Health Trust.
To fulfill our commitment to stopping the harmful exposure of our children to 5G and wireless radiation, CHD has taken this giant step toward unprecedented litigation against the FCC and you are invited to learn more directly from our attorneys and petitioners.
The case is challenging the FCC’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines”and to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health. The FCC’s false “health guidelines” have enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of harmful wireless technology and more recently, the deployment of dangerous 5G installations.
CHD’s lawsuit asserts that the FCC’s refusal to update these guidelines despite the submission of overwhelming evidence of harm from wireless technology radiation, is capricious, arbitrary, not evidence based, and an abuse of its discretion. The success of our case will be a game changer in the battle to stop Big Tech from further damaging children and all life.
This Evidentiary Brief is the main submission in our case and provides the evidence upon which the petitioners rely. It cites thousands of studies, including those conducted by U.S. government agencies, and numerous reports that show clear evidence of harm. It also outlines scientifically the established mechanisms of harm from wireless radiation. Additionally, the brief shines a light on the human evidence of widespread sickness, which the FCC ignored when it egregiously closed its docket on the issue on Dec. 4 2019.
This illuminating and celebratory press conference will be held the day after CHD files its brief on July 29, 2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
During the live Zoom conference, we will offer an opportunity for questions from the media and our community of concerned citizens. Register today and watch children’s advocacy history in the making.
In this landmark case, CHD seeks justice for parents of children injured by wireless devices, including a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell phone use and cell tower exposure along with physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics daily. The submission of this brief brings us one step closer to holding the FCC accountable for its utter failure to protect the health and safety of our children and the public.
Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., CHD Chairman; Dafna Tachover, Esq. MBA, CHD’s Director of 5G & Wireless Harms Project; Scott McCollough, Esq., CHD’s attorney; and David Carpenter, M.D., a Petitioner in the case; as well as parents who submitted affidavits in the case describing their children’s injuries and death from wireless radiation.
Background on The FCC’s Failures:
In 1996, the FCC adopted “health” and safety guidelines which only protect consumers from thermal levels of radiation emitted by wireless devices and infrastructure, ignoring substantial evidence of profound harm from non-thermal levels. The FCC has not reviewed these guidelines since then, despite clear scientific evidence and growing rates of RF-related sickness. In 2012, the Government Accountability Office of Congress published a report recommending that the FCC re-assess its guidelines. As a result, in 2013, the FCC opened docket 13-84 asking for public comment. Despite overwhelming evidence submitted by hundreds of individuals and scientists which indicated an urgent need for new, biologically based rules, the FCC did nothing.
