Ask the Lawyers – How to Stop 5G – 5G Free California Webinar

On Thursday, May 7, 2020 5G Free California hosted a national webinar “Ask the Lawyers” which featured four attorneys who have been working on the 5G/wireless issue including: Scott McCollough, who together with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is representing the Children’s Health Defense, Dr. David Carpenter and other petitioners in their case against the FCC; he is also the attorney for the Irregulators; Andrew Campanelli, an attorney with telecom background who has been working for years to stopping cell towers installations; Mark Pollock, from Pollock and James, a veteran environmental law attorney and a former environmental prosecutor and Ariel Strauss from Green Fire Law, a municipal and environmental attorney who has been working with communities in CA to negotiate better ordinances. 

The webinar enabled advocates from around the country to get professional answers to their questions regarding legal strategies to stop 5G and related infrastructure in communities and nationally.  


The webinar was very successful and Julie Levine, the Executive Director of 5G Free CA, has received many dozens of grateful emails. 5G Free California realizes that there was a lot of technical legal information that most people couldn’t completely comprehend and remember and requests were also received from those who could not attend. For these reasons, 5G Free California is generously providing video and the Transcript of the 90 minutes Q&A, as well as an Executive Summary. Advocates will find the information to be very informative and helpful to their efforts.
