200 parents and kids protest over installation of WIFI in schools in RIshon Lezion - Israel.

About 200 parents and kids protested on the 7/6/2015, in front of Resion Lezion city hall, over the deployment of WIFI networks in schools. The deployment seems to be under way as it seems to be the easy way to bring the internet into schools. The city of Rishon Lezion hired outside help and consultants to try and convince the parents that WIFI is safe and that the deployment is "Progress". But some of the parents, some of them are parents to kids that were already victims to RF radiation that was not suppose to cause any damage, lead the  "green computers in schools" initiative, advocating for  PC, laptops and even tablets that will use a wired connection and not to WIFI.

Few of the parents took part in a meeting with city officials and discussed the deployment. During the meeting it was agreed that wired network will be installed in one test case school. This agreement was not included in the protocol from some reason.
The mayor and his stuff were not convinced that the so called safety standards are not healthy and that kids will become sick from the radiation.

On 7/6/2015 the following pictures were taken in the protest in front of the city hall.  The pictures were taken by Ami Yacov.
