I have always said it would take the power of the people to change things and here you see it happen in a district of Liverpool under the directorship of Dr Tom Bolton and his lovely Bev.
This group fought
For a very long time now these people have prevented Orange from installing a 3G mast as well but suddenly Orange struck and the people rallied to Tom’s call…………..AND WON!
This is what people need to do to make their views known…….but peacefully and within the law. Sheer numbers can do it.
My thanks to Tom and Bev for sharing the information about their
continuing success so that others might be inspired to help their own areas.
They are special friends and lovely people who are always helping children and their community as well as helping others to help themselves with their courses and books.

The People Speak
MANOR EGREMONT MAST ACTION GROUP (MEMAG)
On Sunday 15th April at 9 am a large mobile crane and several other vehicles and crews including body guards/bouncers contracted by Orange phone company arrived at Manor Church Centre to upgrade a 2G Mast and to install the more powerful 3G equipment.
your local appointed Action Group had found out about this and had
alerted you all by posting leaflet through your doors. .
Thankfully even at such a short notice
60 wonderful local people joined together outside
We extend our thanks to those families members including people of all ages and children for their concern and dedication for attending and thereby helping keep our neighbourhood free from further increased microwave radiation. We applaud you. You are the Hero’s and you have proven that local people can make their views known and can stop a giant company from going against the wishes of the majority of people.
We would also like to thank Leah Fraser our local counsellor for her continued support and for attending and joining in with us. We would also like to thank our local police who attended and for the excellent way that they efficiently policed this legal peaceful protest.
We would ask that if you were unable for some reason to attend this time, that if this happens again and it probably will, PLEASE join your neighbours and your friends and come together outside the Manor Church, Manor Road, to make a stand to show that we the people don’t like being forced or subjected to our homes being bombarded with radiation. We have no objection to using cell phones sensibly, that is a persons own choice. We realise that masts are required, but in safe places, not right in the middle of our community and within 500 metres of our homes.
told on Sunday by local people who
attended the protest that there has been an alarming rate of increases
in cancers that have occurred suddenly since the 2G mast has been
switched on in
who lives in the house right opposite the church tower and who was well
when we spoke to her early in 2006, and who then told us that she
didn’t believe there was any health risk being right opposite the Mast, recently died of Cancer. A
lady who attended Sunday’s protest and who was perfectly well until
some months ago tells us that she has suddenly become ill with cancer
and for no obvious reason.
We at MEMAG are just local people like yourselves who are
concerned for the welfare of our children families and are asking for
Orange to remove the present Mast and do not attempt to upgrade it. PLEASE, PLEASE if and
when the next attempt occurs to install and we
notify you PLEASE like your neighbours did last Sunday, give a few
minutes of your time to join together outside the
admit that we cannot definitely be sure that the Mast is to blame for
the cases of cancer mentioned above and several others that have
happened since this mast was put in the
