City opts to Reduce Basestation Signals according to Council of Europe report
France Created: 11 Sep 2011
A city in France, Varades, just opted to tune down antennas to 0,6V/m.

The City Council of Varades, in Loire Atlantique, France, voted unanimously on September, the 6th, Maximum Exposition Limit to 0.6V/m on all parish territory.

The Mayor, Dominique TREMBLAY, and the Municipal Council, aware of the urgent necessity of protecting human health, decided to conform to the prescription released by the Council of Europe published in May 2011.

This decision encompasses implementation of autonomous measuring means to control levels of exposure.

A contrasted studies, such as the protocol put in place in the COMOP studies (Comité Opérationnel - state-supervised Operational Commity) can also be put in practice.

National Association Robin des Toits, in coordination with the City, will help throughout the process with assistance for organization and in taking concrete steps to apply this limit.

Another City Council decided of a moratory over installation of new mobile phone masts over its parrish territory.

Mrs Dominique VOYNET, Mayor of the City of Montreuil, France, through a letter sent August 2nd 2011, informs telecom operators of the City Council's decision, on the basis of precautionary principle, to "oppose systematically each new request of installation permit of telephone masts, and to suspend any new installation or modification over the existing fleet of equipment."

One conclusion is clear :

What one City Council does, every other City Council can do just the same.

Robin des Toits asks each member and correspondant to transmit the voted text and the letter of the Mayor of Montreuil to their elected officials to encourage them to follow these examples of responsibility and political courage, and hence have a chance to underline that protection of the individual health is fully a part of their duties.

We all gather to address our support and congratulations to the City Council of VARADES, to their elected officials, and their Mayor.

Let's give this event a large audience.

Please spread the word and write to the address below to thank these people for their courage, and copy the message to all other City Councils.
