We need to turn out BIG TIME to testify against the 5G drones! (Can't make it? Scroll down.) Testimony will happen around 9am. No need to stay after as there will be no discussion. Quick and easy! Prep 3 mins max of testimony (less is fine).
Talking points include:
1) This is not just a Lana'i issue, this is a Maui County issue. The drones will not be confined to Lana'i island. They will be flying over a 150 square miles of land and ocean including Kaho'olawe and Molokini crater
2) This is a $125 million project backed by Google and SoftBank and other high tech corporations. The Lana'i Planning commission is an all-volunteer body that has limited resources and is not necessarily accountable to the public at large, certainly not to us here on Maui. They are confined to Lana'i jurisdiction, yet this project affects us on Maui. The drones would be flying over Maui County airspace, over the ocean, over
Molokini and Kaho'olawe.
3) The drones will fly over our humpback whale marine sanctuary. Research shows that mammals are negatively affected by wireless radiation. Plus two other giant high-altitude drones built by this company both crashed. This drone weighs 1.5 tons. We must protect our whales and other marine life.
4) 4G/5G is toxic wireless radiation beaming down from above. There will be no place to hide or to seek shelter. We can choose not to be near a cell tower but cannot get away from radiation beaming down from the stratosphere. I do not consent to this.
5) The applicants are not acting in good faith. They built an airstrip and a 16,000 drone hangar on agricultural land without notifying the community and prior to the Lana'i Planning Commission meeting.
