More protest WiFi plan
Malaysia Created: 2 Dec 2008
Another group has been formed to raise concerns over Penang Government’s free state-wide WiFi plan under its Wireless@Penang project.

Launched yesterday, the Penang Environmental and Health Con- cerns Awareness Group comprises 10 members.

Its spokesman Ding Thoun Yee said: “We are concerned with the effects of wireless technologies which may harm the human immune system.”

The wireless system’s emissions may also cause cancer, he claimed at a press conference.

He said the state government had ignored the power of the citizens’ choice.

However, when a reporter asked if they had raised their objections at a recent public forum on the issue, they admitted that they did not attend the event which was opened by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

And when another reporter asked if they could provide medical proof on the harmful effects of wireless technologies, they also said they did not have any.

On Nov 13, the Penang Wireless Campaign Group was set up with a similar aim.
