07 Oct The Echo: Byron’s turn to fight Telstra’s 5G plans
By Hans Lovejoy, The Echo
A proposal to upgrade an existing Telstra tower to 5G in the Byron Arts & Industry Estate has sparked strong resistance from two early childhood learning centres, located within close proximity.
Public submissions close October 15 for the proposal, which is located at 8 Acacia Street. Submissions can be made via email: [email protected] or by phone: 0437 600 895.

A rally is already planned for October 13 from 11am, with further details to be confimed.
Attempts by Telstra to install a 5G tower in Mullumbimby saw an organised and passionate resistance from those unconvinced of the safety claims regarding electro magnetic radiation (EMR), and other 5G factors.
Activist Sherrie Yeomans told The Echo the vigil at the Mullum tower has now been going, day and night, for nearly six months.
