Stopping the Roll-Out in Topanga

We hope you can join us in person on Thursday, November 5,
7pm – 9pm at the Inn of the Seventh Ray!!!

This is a special mailing for Topanga residents, many whom we have not seen since the pandemic began.  We are back, and Lucy is eager to welcome us back at the Inn of the Seventh Ray. The Nov 5th meeting is devoted to stepping up our local strategies to stop the roll out.  This information will be helpful to surrounding communities as well.  We are keeping the agenda short to have time to re-connect and share sweets and beverages. 

Our tentative agenda includes:

*  Challenging Installations – a How to Guide Including 
    role-plays with Brian Planas who has successfully 
    stopped a Topanga installation.

*  Our letter to the Supervisors signed by 100 Topanga 
    residents including 30 business leaders and next steps 
    (from you)

*  Sign and Banner Campaign

*  Topanga Town Council Update and Next Steps

*  Lawsuit status and ADA identification needs

*  LA RICS/SaddlePeak (and Decker) towers status

*  Malibu Ordinance Status and Next Steps

*  Treasurer’s Report and Funding Needs

*  Reception

We will be learning how to challenge local installations and strategizing on next steps to stop the roll out here in Topanga, including ramping up our lawsuit.  This information will be useful to surrounding communities as well.  We are hopeful that you will join us and help us spread the word to other local residents. 

Please join us after the meeting for a dessert and drink reception. We will be saying farewell to Dafna, who is leaving Topanga after living here and working with us for over a year.  She will also share highlights from the lawsuit against the FCC she has filed with Childrens Health Defense and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Andrew J. Campanelli began his legal career as a litigator in 1992.  Since then he has handled over 3,000 civil cases, and he has litigated over 1,000 cases to conclusion.  His law practice specialties include representation of local governments seeking to regulate the installations of wireless facilities, defending local governments in actions commenced under the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and representation of civic associations and homeowners seeking to oppose the irresponsible placement of cell towers or wireless facilities.

Susan Clarke has a 10-year, post-masters background at the Harvard School of Public Health, with legal training on the side, and 30 years’ experience in RF/microwave radiation bioeffects health advocacy at the federal, state and local levels.  She has averted many antenna and tower construction projects and has authored legislation toward the banning of geoengineering for all 50 states and the federal government.   

Paul G of Scientists for Wired Technology (S4WT) assists advocacy efforts that seek to make effective, lasting changes to federal, state and local laws, regulations and practices that will protect people and other living organisms from the hazards of RF/MW — advocacy rooted in scientists’ research of the hazards of RF Microwave Radiation.  S4WT has helped to defeat state Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) deployment bills, improve local telecom ordinances and stop cell tower installations in CA, OR, ID, IL, TN, NY and other states.
