378 Sign Petition to Reject Burger King Cell Tower

IMG_1641

Gonzales Community School kids, their parents,    educators and neighbors picket against AT&T’s plan to put a cell tower at the Burger King adjacent to their school, in Santa Fe, NM. The Santa Fe Public Schools Board of Education unanimously passes a resolution opposing AT&T’s plan to put the tower in such close proximity to the elementary/middle school.
Contact NoBurgerKingCellTower@comcast.net for further information and a link to the petition at Change.org.

 

The parents of children attending Gonzales Community School and Principal Mike Lee are telling City Hall that they do NOT want a cell tower dangerously near their beautiful grade school. AT & T plans to site a 74 foot tall tower on the corner nearest to the pretty school–within falling distance of three gas pumps next to the Burger King at 100 St. Francis and the corner of W. Alameda.

ALL PARENTS OF STUDENTS AT GONZALES COMMUNITY, ASPEN  AND DRAGONFLY SCHOOLS  INVITED TO CONTACT Dee Beingessner:

As the science reaches over 25,000 papers published on the dangers of microwave radiation, especially in unregulated and involuntary exposure of children, communities have to step up and learn how to address this situation.

The 1996 TeleCom Act prohibits communities and city officials from refusing a cell tower based upon any concerns of health or environmental effects, although these are both well-documented.

As evidenced by cell towers built at Cerrillos and Airport, near Capital High School on state land via The School For The Deaf (without apprising or asking the neighbors or the Principal of that school) and now at Baillio’s, most cell towers are placed in working class neighborhoods, near affordable housing for the disabled or elderly, or near schools. In Santa Fe, we currently have only the more affluent Historic Area protected.
