Boyle Heights community gardeners are attempting to stop a cell phone tower from being built due to their 5G fears. “We're afraid that this radiation is going to add more damage to our community,” says Brenda Martinez, a parent, coach, and anti-5G activist. Martinez says she also wants to fight the tower because she was told it could displace the garden where she works.
