Attorney Files “Corporate Invasion” Lawsuit Against Verizon Over Planned 5G Towers in His Yard and Neighborhood — Activist Post – May 25, 2020

By B.N. Frank

Activist Post Many cities and countries have already taken action against 5G deployment.  This includes banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions (see 123456789).  Exposure to 5G (see 12) and other sources of wireless radiation (see 12) can reduce immunity and cause other health problems including increased cancer risk.  Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after 5G was turned on (see 1234).

Cell tower installation near homes also reduces property value.  Last week an Atlanta attorney filed a lawsuit against Verizon for planning to install a 5G tower in his yard and additional towers throughout his neighborhood. →
