A court in Zutphen, Netherlands has annulled a permit for a UMTS antenna due to beekeeping activities in the area. The Winterswijk municipality gave KPN the permit to build the tower in November 2010. Five local residents filed an appeal against the permit, and the court found that the city did not motivate its decision well enough to show there would be no negative consequences from the cell site.

Telecompaper response: Links were added to two Dutch Telecompaper articles. Note that this initial ruling was overturned.


We are the only species that hasn't figured out its place in the natural world!

I am really glad that the people of Netherlands have the common sense to choose the well being of the many over the few.

Good decision - make it permanent! Plenty of research has been gathered on EMF/RF health effects - view it on www.smartmeterdangers.org - Research. Also, www.magdahavas.com. We are currently destroying all biological beings with our obsession to have "toys" that are wireless. We will pay the price for such stupidity, in the face of at least 20,000 independent, peer-reviewed studies over the past fifty years. www.electrosmogprevention.org
