Anti 5-G Educator from England – Arrested and Jailed but not Silenced 

Mark Steele, from England, has been making headlines for telling the truth about the dangers of 5-G. He has been trying to educate the Gateshead community and its Council about the serious risks of 5-G technology. [1, 2]

The Gateshead Council approved the installation of new LED street lights, which contain 5-G equipment. This allows 5-G equipment to be hidden in what people would assume to be harmless city lighting – but these new lights are anything but harmless. [1, 2, 3]

Gateshead Council Sought to Silence Him

Mark Steele began to speak out about the risks of this 5-G equipment in the Gateshead community where he lives. The Council objected to his vocal presence and sought to silence him.

Mark Steele told me what happened:

It all started with the Council sending council officers, workers, and councilors to my home to exaggerate and fabricate evidence about the events that happened as they engaged with me. 

I knew all the time this was a set-up and I played along. We now have all of the evidence of the false statements and perjury of the witnesses.

Two councilors made false witness testimony about me and I was arrested. I spent a day in Police custody. It all came out in court and I was charged and found guilty of a lesser offence as I had admitted calling them baby killers. [1]

This was only the Beginning of the Battle

As is usually the case in situations like this, the matter did not end there. 

Mark Steele provides more details. He stated:

Then they sought a full gagging order in the Civil Courts to stop any output about 5G from me. Their claim was I was frightening vulnerable people in the area. This was the civil case, which failed.

The Judge demanded that the 5G risk be debated. I was given an injunction to not break the law, which I haven’t. 

I did send two emails to all councilors telling them to do their duty and uphold the law. I mentioned the crime of not complying with the law – [As a result] the court said this was intimidation of the Councilors and I was fined £250 suspended for two years.

The Council is still trying to silence me about 5G. However, the problem they have is the Court has sanctioned me to carry on the campaign. The recorder Nolan stated the “public have a right to know” “this is democracy in action” [1]

Highly Qualified to Speak out about 5-G

Mark Steele is an inventor, patent writer, and technologist. He worked for a company called Reevu where he was the lead innovator in product development. He brought the world’s first Rear Vision motorcycle helmet successfully to market. [1, 4]

According to Mark Steele, he is the inventor of the binocular wave guide, lift boats, exit tools, molecular reactors, and a raft of weapon sights. His inventions also include thermal imaging, surgical imaging systems, pilot fire, and rescue helmet imaging systems. He indicated that his inventions are all within current regulatory standards and international approvals. [1]

Mark Steele also appears in Sacha Stone’s 5-G documentary which brought together scientists and physicians from around the world to describe the risks of this technology. In the documentary, Mark Steele shows what is inside these new LED street lamps.


(The section where Mark Steele shows the device begins at 4:30 minutes.)

5-G is First and Foremost a Surveillance and Weapons System

Even though 5-G is being promoted as a major advancement for tech-savvy smartphone users, it is mainly designed for machine-to-machine communication.

It is purported to be the key to new robotic surgery, remote medical services, connected-object communications through the internet of things, and self-driving or autonomous vehicles.

However, it is also the key to highly sophisticated weapons and surveillance. [3]

5-G is different from 4-G and all other previous generation cellular services, because it uses beam forming antenna arrays. 5-G technology has the ability to direct a pulsing beam of radio frequency radiation (RFR) directly at a cell phone or other device.

It will have the potential capacity to increase the power of energy beams up to the point where the health and life of the device user is threatened. [3, 5]

No one should assume that if you put your smartphone down and walk away from it that you will be safe.

5-G can See through Walls and Look for People 

The beam forming technology of 5-G can also be used to create 3-dimensional images of objects behind walls. Researchers tout the benefit of this technology as being of great benefit to fire and rescue workers.

They say it could help firefighters see what is inside smoke-filled and burning buildings so that they can more safely execute their rescue missions. [6]

The benefit to rescue workers is laudable, but the same technology can also be used by anyone to look through walls and see what is inside.

This means that if someone wanted to target a person for rapid onset illness and early death, then the system could search a building for human life and direct a 5-G beam of RFR at them all-day or all-night long.

Of course if the person keeps a smartphone on the night stand beside the bed, then this makes it even easier to target them.

But doesn’t 5-G have Trouble Penetrating Trees and Walls?

As currently configured, we are told that 5-G won’t be strong enough to send its beams through the leaves of trees or even through heavy rain. We are also told that it will have difficulty passing through concrete walls to reach inside warehouses, so much that warehouse managers will need to install 5-G booster equipment to distribute the 5-G signals into such buildings. [7]

Let’s stop and think about this for a minute. 

If 5-G isn’t strong enough to get inside many buildings, to pass through trees, or even be functional during a rainstorm or snowstorm, [7] then what use is it? This would mean we all need to go outside to use our 5-G smartphones, and if it is raining, then we can’t use them at all.

5-G isn’t Really for End Users with Smartphones

5-G enabled smartphones will have both 5-G and 4-G capabilities.

When the 5-G signal isn’t strong enough, then the phone will just use the 4-G system. [7]

It is likely that most users will not even notice that 5-G isn’t in operation.

But doesn’t 5-G have Better Latency?

Vector Autonomous Car with satellite controls. Future technologies driverless transport in flat style

4-G has a 50 millisecond latency, which means there can be a 50 millisecond delay in response to a command.

5-G is supposed to have a 1-thousandth of a second delay under ideal circumstances. Experts are expecting a 10 Millisecond latency in practice. “Just to give that some context, it takes at least 10ms for an image seen by the human eye to be processed by the brain.” [18]

We are not talking 1 second versus 2 seconds or 1 tenth of a second versus 1 second. We are talking about a few thousands of seconds that might not be visible to the casual observer.

The primary benefit of having latency in the range of 1 millisecond to 10 milliseconds is for machine-to-machine communication such as might be used in driverless cars, 5-G traffic lights, and surveillance equipment – otherwise it is of minimal value to smartphone users unless they are doing intense gaming. [3, 18]

But, Doesn’t 5-G promise faster Downloads?

Is it really going to change anyone’s life if they can download a movie in 10 seconds versus 2 minutes? How many movies does a person need to download in a day? How many movies can a person watch in a day?

Super-fast downloads and uploads will mainly be beneficial to those using 5-G for surveillance tasks. It will enable inspectors to do real-time monitoring of city streets and to look inside of buildings. It will be needed by driverless cars and for 5-G controlled traffic lights and signage. [3]

FCC Greases the Skids to Permit Even Faster 5-G Rollout in the US

In policies issued in August and September of 2018 [8, 9], the FCC reinforced its position that nothing should be allowed to delay or stop 5-G buildout.

  • The FCC rulings clearly establish what they call a shot clock, which allows local government (municipalities and county government) only 60 or 90 days to approve the 5-G implementation plans given to them by telecom companies. [8, 9]
  • Local governments are prohibited from enacting moratoriums on 5-G installation. [8, 9]
  • Local governments must limit the charges they issue to telecom companies for installing 5-G equipment to the actual costs they incur according to a schedule of the FCC. [8, 9]
  • Local governments are prohibited from using esthetic standards that are beyond the standards used for other projects. [8, 9]
  • Local governments cannot prevent 5-G installation in areas where existing electric utility services are all underground. [8, 9]
  • Local governments cannot prevent 5-G installation in historic districts, and have been told to ignore requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act and National Environmental Policy Act. 5-G installation will be permitted on all federal lands and buildings. [8, 9]
  • Local governments cannot delay implementation of 5-G because of pending legislation by state government or other decision making bodies. [8, 9] 
  • Finally, local governments must clear the way for 5-G installation by making sure that all utility poles that telecom companies plan to use are made accessible and are ready for their use. [8, 9] 

In summary, the FCC has made it crystal clear that local governments can no longer use any of the above mentioned reasons as excuses for delaying or attempting to stop telecom companies from setting up their 5-G networks. 

Objections to 5-G on the Basis of Health Risks are not Permitted

In case you are wondering about objecting on the basis of health concerns – the FCC already preempted all objections based on health concerns, so they didn’t need to restate the fact that local government cannot object to 5-G on the basis of health risks.

Cities Object to the Heavy Hand of the FCC and are Suing 

As might be expected, cities from around the country are suing the FCC and the US Government for forcing them to submit to every desire of telecom companies as they rollout 5-G. [10]

In fact, more than two dozen municipalities, counties, and organizations are participating in lawsuits.

They include: the City of San Jose, California; the City of Arcadia, California; the City of Bellevue, Washington; the City of Burien, Washington; the City of Burlingame, California; Culver City, California; the Town of Fairfax, California; the City of Gig Harbor, Washington; the City of Issaquah, Washington; the City of Kirkland, Washington; the City of Las Vegas, Nevada; the City of Los Angeles, California; the County of Los Angeles, California; the City of Monterey, California; the City of Ontario, California; the City of Piedmont, California; the City of Portland, Oregon; the City of San Jacinto, California; the City of Shafter, California; the City of Yuma, Arizona; City of Albuquerque, New Mexico; National League of Cities; City of Brookhaven, Georgia; City of Baltimore, Maryland; City of Dubuque, Iowa; Town of Ocean City, Maryland; City of Emeryville, California; Michigan Municipal League; Town of Hillsborough, California; City of La Vista, Nebraska; City of Medina, Washington; City of Papillion, Nebraska; City of Plano, Texas; City of Rockville, Maryland; City of San Bruno, California; City of Santa Monica, California; City of Sugarland, Texas; League of Nebraska Municipalities; the City of Austin, Texas; The City of Ann Arbor, Michigan; the County of Anne Arundel, Maryland; The City of Atlanta, Georgia; the City of Boston, Massachusetts; the City of Chicago Illinois; Clark County, Nevada; the City of College Park, Maryland; the City of Dallas, Texas; the District of Columbia; the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland; Howard County, Maryland; the City of Lincoln, Nebraska; Montgomery County, Maryland; the City of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; the City of Omaha, Nebraska; The City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the City of Rye, New York; The City of Scarsdale, New York; the City of Seat Pleasant, Maryland; the City of Takoma Park, Maryland; the Texas Coalition of Cities for Utility Issues; Meridian Township, Michigan; Bloomfield Township, Michigan; the Michigan Townships Association; The Michigan Coalition to Protect Public Rights- Of-Way, and City of New York. [11]

The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit decided to consolidate the cases from cities and counties around the United States. The FCC opposed the plan by asking for an Abeyance, in other words an indefinite delay, presumably to give the FCC more time to resolve the matters. [11]

The court noted that the FCC does not have a strong history of promptly responding to concerns raised by anyone who opposes their decisions. [11] 

The results of these lawsuits are not yet available.

A Criminal Conspiracy against Americans

In a report from the publication “State of the Nation” concerning the FCC and their attempt to force cities and counties to do the will of telecom companies, they stated:

It is critical for every U.S. citizen to understand that this illicit and highly consequential order by the FCC is wholly unprecedented. It is also reckless to the extreme. Much more significantly, however, this FCC ruling represents a massive and complex criminal conspiracy that will seriously injure the American people.

That the FCC would blatantly attempt to unlawfully arrogate power unto itself to foist 5G on the entire nation represents the height of federal overreach and governmental hubris. Such an illegal order is clearly a tyrannical move by the U.S. Federal Government to improperly impose the deployment of 5G on every city and county in the 50 states.

Not only is this usurpation of municipal authority completely unconstitutional, it’s a flagrant violation of various federal laws, state statutes, county codes and city ordinances. [12]

Multiple 5-G Systems on Every Street

Municipalities won’t just need to lay down and be walked on by one telecom company – they will need to permit all of them to put up their own 5-G systems anywhere they choose.

We are deceived if we believe that 5-G small cell towers will be spaced out every 100 or 200 feet. We must remember that there will probably be three or more systems on every street and in every neighborhood.

We should anticipate a 5-G unit of some type on top of every utility pole, light pole, school, bus-stop shelter, fire/police station, courthouse, and on anything else owned by a city or county. In addition, 5-G satellites will blanket the entire Earth with their radiation.

Conclusion – Momentum Against 5-G is Building Speed

My previous articles have been warning about the dangers of wireless technology for several years. In the beginning, source information was hard to come by.

But now, I am pleased to report that the internet is full of detailed articles about the health risks and hazards of 5-G technology, and scientists are raising serious concerns. [17]

Of course, telecom companies are responding to the truth by spitting out a never-ending litany of mind control articles telling us how wonderful their system will be when it is fully implemented.

Telecom companies are trying to convince us that we won’t know real happiness until we can sit down in a self-driving car and can download 20 or 30 full length movies on our 5-G smartphone as we lay back in our cars while being driven to work. 

Others are telling us that we won’t know real contentment until we can have our brains wirelessly connected to the 5-G network and can use our minds to gather knowledge and seek pleasure of all kinds through the internet of things. [13, 14, 15]

As I read between the lines of all the 5-G hype, it seems that they are telling us that we won’t really be full citizens of the Smart City until we have Virtual Reality immersive experiences where our fantasy life can be merged with real life and we can use 5-G to create new worlds in our minds. 

5-G may give people bits and pieces of a new reality, but there will be a big price to pay. 

The system will be a total surveillance system, which will watch everything we do on the streets and in our homes. Nothing will be private – someone will always be watching.

And for people who don’t want to become living components of the 5-G network, that same system can potentially be used to punish objectors and resisters by inflicting pain and illness, and if necessary, by terminating their lives.

The truth is that there will be very little if any real happiness in the Smart Cities of the future. Life will be filled with never-ending amusement, mindless entertainment, meaningless activities, and early death.

Life will be short, because of the constant exposure to extremely high levels of radio frequency radiation.

One of the many good articles I recently read about the dangers of 5-G is linked below. The title itself tells the story and why I chose to highlight it here.

5G Super-Hotspots: You better know where the “kill zones” are located!

The 5-G kill zones are any location where telecom companies indicate that their 5-G system is fully operational. They want to be sure that their system sparkles and shimmers with spectacular performance.

To accomplish their goal, they are going to push up the signal strength so that trees, rain, people’s bodies, and walls won’t stop the 5-G signals. These locations will be kill zones. All forms of life will be threatened. 

If you want to know where the current kill zones [16] are located, then just contact Sprint/T-Mobile, Verizon, or AT&T, and ask them where their 5-G system is fully operational. The following link identifies the cities where there are kill zones. 

These are the cities with 5G or getting 5G in 2019
