0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

We the undersigned, the citizens of Thames Coromandel, would like to call an immediate halt to the planned 5G roll out by Spark NZ and other telecommunication companies.

5G is the next generation of wireless communications designed to provide faster download speed. It is the foundation for a new system labelled 'the internet of things' (IOT) which is being hyped as the future for so called smart cities, smart cars,virtual reality and so on.

~ The Dangers are: 5G emits an ultra high frequency. it will be an extreme 24/7 radiation, similar to microwaves. 

~ 5G small cells would be sporadically mounted onto lamp posts,near homes and schools.

~ 1G to 4G use frequencies between 1-5 GigaHertz. 5G small cells could be using frequencies between 24-90 GigaHertz.

~ There is no current independent safety assessment of 5G for NZ

~ Telecommunications companies want to deploy 5G in NZ from 2020.

~ In 2015 215 scientist from 41 countries communicated their alarm to the united Nations and World Health Organisation. They stated that "numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMFs (electromagnetic fields) affect living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines".

~ More than 10,000 peer reviewed scientific studies show adverse biological effects from RF radiation.

~ Recent studies indicate that RF radiation is proven carcinogenic to humans and should now be classified as a "Group 1 carcinogen," along with tobacco smoke and asbestos.
