5G Cell Tower and Cell Phone Songs
Music has helped inspire activism and calls for urgent change. Music is a universal language that transcends generations and can serve as medicine for the heart. The songs on this list hail from around globe – some are 5G protest songs, some champion other environmental causes. But they all have a similar message: a yearning to connect to the natural world and to be present with all living beings and one another. These songs are about gratitude for our life on this planet, about acknowledging the pain of not fully embracing our interconnectedness to all life, about seeing the world through new eyes, and moving forward to a more life-promoting way of being. These songs are a collective voice of “waking up.”

In 2012, cell phone providers revealed that they had responded to a staggering 1.3 million demands for cell phone records from U.S. law enforcement agencies last year alone. These records can include location data, which officials within President Obama’s administration say does not require a search warrant to obtain. This revelation, coupled with concern over how cell phone providers share your information with advertisers, prompted us to write the cell phone privacy song.
