Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment. The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G until there are studies that show it’s safe. Doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2).
43 organizations sent a joint letter to the European Commission asking them to stop 5G deployment and offer safer technology instead. American opposition includes federal agencies and credible experts who warn 5G threatens jobs, national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course exposure risks ARE NOT isolated to 5G. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population.
The Stop 5G International organization is asking the U.N. to step in.
This Open Letter to the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights covers a wide array of issues and may prove useful in informing public officials of the numerous largely unaddressed harms of 5G.
The letter presents the many and multifaceted reasons for worldwide mounting resistance to 5G. These include impacts on health, wildlife, privacy, self-sovereignty, cyber security, e-footprint from energy consumption and e-waste, conflict minerals, Electromagnetic Sensitivity, harsh worker conditions, psycho-social effects, unquantified public subsidies, and liability.
Problems from satellites include increased endangerment of global security, interference with weather prediction and astronomical research, space debris and likely collisions, depletion of the ozone layer, loss of enjoyment of the night skies, interference with wildlife navigation and orientation, dangers posed from solar flares, ever more radiation emissions, and the, as yet unstudied effects on planetary life.
All to the backdrop of no public consultation or consent.
The letter also explains that not all technology is created equal. Although the telecom industry is promoting 5G to “bridge the digital divide”, wired connections would be far superior as they are safer, faster, more reliable, energy efficient, and cyber secure than wireless.
Furthermore, a primarily wired tech future not only better preserves public health and privacy, it addresses other human rights violations and environmental problems brought on by 5G. Wired does not lend itself to connecting every “thing”, moment in time, and point in space to the internet, thus automatically reducing e-waste, tech addiction, data-harvesting, tracking, mandatory exposure to wireless radiation, EMF refugees, property devaluation, and the “need” for satellites.
The letter calls for advocacy, education, regulation, and less radiation.
A move toward wired technology for all as a fundamental human right in today’s world.
Public education about technology, including full disclosure of the health and environmental costs of a hyper-connected, predominantly wireless world, and the benefits of safer wired choices.
Greater regulation of industry on the placement of wireless infrastructure, and its use only where deemed an “essential service” not possible with wired connections.
Standard setting bodies and health organizations providing more protective RF guidelines that take into account: duration of exposure, distance from source, aggregate exposures, and the unique characteristics of every life form that will be impacted.
Infrastructure choices returned to local communities as they know what is best for their citizens.
Incentives given to industry to provide safer technology.

High-speed internet is achievable, safer and more secure with a wired internet connection (see 1, 2, 3) NOT 5G or WiFi. If the U.N. won’t protect us from Big Telecom – how can we depend on them to protect us from anything?
