Stop 5G in Mangawhai ~ New Zealand

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


The undersigned are urgently calling for the Kaipara District Council to halt the roll out of 5G in our community due to serious potential health effects from this new technology. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.

5G will massively increase the microwave and millimeter wave radiation in our environment. It will also use new frequencies that are not evaluated by experts independent from industry as to their safety.

A substantial and convincing amount of scientific studies show many adverse health effects and health hazards from radiofrequency/microwave radiation.

No evaluation of health effects nor of effects on the wildlife and the environment has been undertaken. There is no research showing safety neither from 5G alone, nor from the combined exposure to 5G + already existing radiation from GSM, 3G, WiFi, 4G etc.

During the recent years over 240 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns”, via EMF Scientists Appeal, regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices – already before the additional 5G roll-out. The over 240 scientists refer to the fact that ”numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.

We, the Kaipara Community, primarily urge the Kaipara District Council to assist our community to: 

Take all reasonable measures to halt the 5G RF-EMF expansion until independent scientists can assure that 5G and the total radiation levels caused by RF-EMF (5G together with 2G, 3G, 4G, and WiFi) will not be harmful for our community, especially infants, children and pregnant women, as well as the environment.

We DO NOT give consent for the roll out of 5G technology in Mangawhai until these measures have been taken and our safety is assured. The health and wellbeing of our community and environment is of upmost importance to us. Please assist us to keep our community safe and well.
