Santa Fe: Free Wi-Fi plan draws protest

Nine people showed up at the Santa Fe City Council on Wednesday to protest plans for free wireless Internet hot spots around town.

Wi-Fi service was installed this week at City Council Chambers, and councilors are looking to create new hotspots at libraries, recreation centers and other city buildings.

But the people who spoke during the council’s “petitions from the floor” maintain that wireless service, cell phones and other microwave-transmitting devices cause cancer, brain tumors and other health problems.

“I’m here despite the fact that I have a headache in this room, despite the fact that it’s affecting my breathing,” said Arthur Firstenberg. “I’m staying long enough to speak, but having Wi-Fi in City Hall is definitely an infringement of the rights of people to petition their government for grievances.”

Bill Bruno, who said he had a doctorate in physics and works at Los Alamos National Laboratory, carried a microwave meter and wore a silver-coated nylon veil which he said helped protect him from Wi-Fi signals. “I don’t like feeling like a freak, but there’s not that many places I can go now that I don’t feel like a freak,” he said.
