Worldwide opposition to 5G continues to increase. So do ordinances and resolutions to control or reduce installation as well as bans, delays, and moratoriums (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after it was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4). Telecoms continue to “unleash” it anyway as long as nobody legally stops them.
AT&T now has low-band 5G service in 90 new markets (see 1, 2). They have plans to eventually roll out 5G AirGig, and this technology sounds even scarier.
From Children’s Health Defense:
AirGig is a new technology developed by AT&T to transfer Wi-Fi and wireless data over power lines using 4G LTE and 5G millimeter waves. To date, AT&T has submitted over 500 patents and applications related to the AirGig technology, which turns existing power lines into transmitters. According to AT&T’s glowing press releases, AirGig could even replace cell towers:
We hope that one day there will be no need to build new towers or bury new cables in locations close to aerial power lines. Instead, using AirGig patented technology, we would install devices to provide high speed broadband which can be clamped on by trained electrical workers in just a few minutes.
The AirGig technology aims to provide “ultra-fast” broadband Wi-Fi anywhere there are power lines, offering “last-mile wireless connectivity” without the need for deployment of any new fiber-to-the-home. As “last-mile” suggests, AT&T is framing its AirGig technology as a solution for extending wireless access to virtually everyone on the planet. The company writes:
Project AirGig has opened the door to the possibility of broadband internet connectivity for nearly everyone currently served by an electric utility. It’s a first-of-its-kind technology that is expected to deliver broadband connectivity to homes and mobile devices wherever there are power lines—whether urban,

The Israeli Knesset is considering legislation that would grant government officials immunity from criminal prosecution, and just so happen to spare Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from three looming corruption indictments.
If the proposed amendment to the Immunity Law passes, elected officials could not be charged with a criminal offense unless the 120-member Knesset and the Knesset House Committee agreed to waive immunity. Should Netanyahu’s Likud Party secure a coalition and outnumber its rivals, the measure could effectively place them above the law for as long as they serve in government.

The legislation reverses existing procedure by which Knesset members can only be granted immunity from prosecution if both the Knesset and House Committee agree to spare them. It applies to any offense committed during or before being voted into the Knesset, and has outraged opponents of the PM.
“Citizens aren’t allowed to steal, but MKs are,” MK Pnina Tamano-Shata from the opposition Blue and White bloc marveled at the opening of a Knesset House Committee meeting. The Blue and White plans to hold a protest on Saturday denouncing the move as a “defense shield for democracy.”
Even in Netanyahu’s own party, not everyone is convinced that making the Knesset above the law is a good idea. “This legislation offers zero benefit and maximum damage,” senior Likud party member Gideon Sa’ar told Israeli Channel 12, while former Likud MK Benny Begin remarked: “Such a phenomenon is called corruption.”
Likud MK Miki Zohar, who submitted the bill last month and was “delighted” to see it appear on the Knesset agenda on Monday, denied he was acting as an “emissary” of Netanyahu, who is currently facing a raft of serious charges including breach of trust, corruption, and bribery in relation to three cases.
Zohar, who is tapped to head the House Committee in the new government, insists Netanyahu had blocked the immunity bill when he introduced it in the last Knesset.
