A letter from the anti-antenna headquarters:
Dear friends, we won!
The Partner company decided not to build
the base station at the previously selected location.
The antenna will be moved to a South-Western location in the middle of the avocado plantations
The head of the Local Council, Effie Der'ee, and VP of Technology at Partner, Alon Berman, arrived at an agreement regarding future ways of cooperation. Partner agreed to all our demands:
- The new location of the base station will be chosen together with us.
- The "theoretical survey" for the base station will be checked by an independent testing institute, chosen by us.
- Quarterly radiation tests will be conducted by an examiner chosen by the Local Council, and funded by Partner.
It was also decided not to activate the existing station on Rabin Street, and move it outside the Western neighborhood, towards road 57. As for the base station that was about to be erected at the cemetery of Yanuv, it was decided not to proceed with the construction work. Partner will try, in agreement with the Local Council, to find an alternative location, further away.
I personally think that even if we didn't eliminate the "danger" altogether, we at least moved it further away from the houses of Kfar Yona. Please note that the distance almost tripled - instead of 120 meters we got 300, which is definitely a victory
, achieved without bloodshed. I propose to anyone interested to join me for a short tour in the field, to evaluate the new location.
I'd like to use this opportunity to thank everyone who helped bring the victory home: Micha, Amir, Oren, Yohanan, Natan, Rakefet, Yael, Yuval, Ali, Rafi, Ilan, Eli, Sagit and many others, without whom it wouldn't have happened. And of course, to the Local Council and the man heading it, who walked with us hand in hand. Thanks to everyone who took part in this. We will keep updating you via the mailing list and our website, regarding the "survey" and the field tests.
Again, thanks to everyone,
with "no base station was built here" blessings,
