Governments are pushing 5G hard, despite many protests from citizens worldwide. In the US, President Trump has declared 5G to be “a national strategic priority”. Yet concerns about 5G health and environmental effects must be clear even to him, because Palm Beach, where his Mar-a-Lago estate is located, has been exempted from a Florida law which mandates the forced installation of 5G small cells in front of people’s homes.
The Palm Beach Daily News quotes a resident as saying, “We have been carved out. The law does not apply to us.”
Why is posh Palm Beach, often known as “billionaire’s row”, the exception? If the billionaires don’t want 5G, why should anyone else?
Elsewhere, more ordinary people are fighting hard to stop 5G in their communities. Here’s some of the good news:
In the US, the FCC is being sued by towns, cities, mayors and local government officials, as well as private citizens who are tired of being told they cannot object to wireless infrastructure on health or environmental grounds. Municipalities object to the FCC’s preemption of local authority and want to make their own decisions regarding whether to adopt 5G. Private citizens want to be healthy and live in a safe environment. Let’s hope these lawsuits succeed.
Also in the US, T-Mobile has cancelled 5G installation nationwide, while the entire state of Louisiana unanimously voted to stop 5G. This is the first state to do so, but many towns and communities are also rejecting 5G.
In the UK, a parliamentary committee held a discussion about health concerns relating to electromagnetic fields and 5G. The smart meter rollout has been put back 4 years, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson questioned in a recent speech at the UN whether, with 5G and the IoT, we are creating a world that will violate the fundamental rights of humanity.
In the EU, Belgium and Geneva have flatly rejected 5G, while Germany and the Netherlands are going to study the scientific literature before deciding to install it. Several districts in Italy have rejected 5G. In Denmark, a law firm has issued a legal opinion stating that 5G rollout would violate both EU and international law.
Doubts about 5G are even creeping into the EU’s own bureaucratic literature. This is important, because the EU has publicly committed to full 5G rollout by 2025. Yet the EU Commission’s own Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Health Risks (SCHEER) rates the potential effects of an increase in electromagnetic fields on wildlife a 3 (maximum risk) in terms of scale, urgency, and interaction with other ecosystems. 5G, SCHEER says, “may have unintended biological consequences.” It’s good that they’re waking up. Will the nature NGOs take heed of this warning?
Meanwhile, an EU report on the progress of 5G rollout pours cold water on the question of demand for 5G services, saying, “we have yet to see significant demand-pull that could assure sales.” They add, “The telecommunications industry and mainstream media report daily on the latest development and who is ahead in this race while, more fundamentally, there are unanswered questions over what 5G actually is, what it is for, whether it is safe, and whether it offers good value for money or whether anyone will be prepared to pay for it.” The report also admits that 5G is a massive experiment, since “it is not possible to accurately simulate or measure 5G emissions in the real world.”
Even Eric van Rongen, who is the chairman of ICNIRP, the self-styled German-based NGO which sets the safety standards for non-ionizing radiation worldwide, admits that 5G is “a public health experiment.” The fact is, no one is even sure whether the current, woefully inadequate safety standards will have to be lowered to allow 5G to operate. If they are lowered, ICNIRP will have to justify it. How will they do that, in light of van Rongen’s statement?
Australia is making great strides against 5G, at least in part thanks to barrister Ray Broomhall’s “Step-by-Step Action Plan: We Say No to 5G in Australia”. Broomhall has stopped 25,000 cell towers in Australia to date, and the methods he uses may be applicable in other countries as well.
In Taiwan, all five wireless carriers say they won’t roll out 5G services because there’s no profitable business model to sell the technology (the EU could learn from this). And in Russia, the Russian National Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection has called for the release of new EMF hazard warning signs on mobile phones and other EMF sources. These signs warn that a device is a source of EMF, that it is dangerous for pregnant women, and that it should not be used by children up to the age of 16. They’re a long-overdue innovation that should be used all over the world.

Here’s the bad news:
Although there have been many protests against terrestrial 5G, people tend to forget what is literally hanging over our heads like the sword of Damocles: the 20,000 satellites that will soon be broadcasting 4G, LTE, Wi-Fi and 5G onto the earth from space. These satellites will be polluting the ionosphere with millions of pulsed signals, which will alter the earth’s electromagnetic environment and pollute the global electrical circuit which passes through every living thing. As Arthur Firstenberg, author of the 5G Space Appeal, recently said, “the antennas on the ground will not matter if 5G in space puts an end to all life. We have about 4 months to prevent this.”
The 5G Space Appeal will soon be presented to the United Nations as well as to the governments of many countries around the globe. We must hope that they will listen. And we must, must vigorously protest against 5G from space, against any G from space, because it isn’t enough to stop this technology on the ground.
This fight isn’t just about 5G. To date, earlier wireless technologies (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE and Wi-Fi) have cost the world 75% of its insect life, 30% of its birds (many species of which are heading for extinction), much of its aquatic life, millions of trees, and made millions of people unwell. This technology, in whatever form, cannot be used safely. We must realize this. And we must stop the satellites.
