Sadie Nicholas started this petition to Wealden District Council

"We, the undersigned, petition Eastbourne Borough Council to halt any roll out of 5G technology and all associated infrastructure in Eastbourne and invoke the Precautionary Principle adopted by the EU in 2005 which states: “When human activities may lead to morally unacceptable harm that is scientifically plausible but uncertain, actions shall be taken to avoid or diminish that harm.”

The World Charter for Nature adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1982 was the first International endorsement of the Precautionary Principle stating: “Activities which are likely to cause irreversible damage to nature shall be avoided... Where potential adverse effects are not fully understood, the activities should not proceed."

Thousands of independent scientific studies show clear evidence of biological harm from existing 2G/3G/4G/Wi-Fi radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR).

5G in all its forms will both increase current emissions and also add frequencies which have not been proven safe,  rendering its deployment an experiment on humanity.

We now call upon Eastbourne Borough Council to consider the overwhelming evidence shown by independent scientific research into the biological effects of RF-EMR and to evaluate what impact an additional layer of RF- EMR in the form of 5G will have on human health, animals, wildlife, insects, birds and the ecosystem as a whole.

Once 5G is deployed fully, it will expose us to inescapable higher frequency and intensity, beam-formed, pulsed RF-EMR 24/7.  Such exposure without public consultation andwithout our informed consent, constitutes a blatant breach of our Human Rights.   WE DO NOT CONSENT UNTIL PROVEN SAFE."

 

Why is this important?

Much independent scientific research cited in the peer-reviewed literature has shown that radio frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) from mobile phone masts and devices (4G, 3G and Wi-Fi) causes harmful biological effects well below the international guidelines set by ICNIRP and followed by Public Health England. Independent scientists claim that effects include DNA damage, neurological damage, endocrine damage and cancer. 5G in all its forms will add more frequencies and higher intensities to existing emissions. Existing preliminary scientific research shows that high-frequency millimetre waves can penetrate the skin and can cause harmful effects (see link below); scientists agree that more research is needed and that not enough is known about the effects of 5G on populations.

261 scientists from 40 countries have expressed grave concern over existing levels of RF-EMR even prior to 5G deployment. The US group Physicians for Safe Technology state: ‘there is convincing emerging scientific evidence causing great concern for the environment, with harm to mammals, insects and bacteria ... 5G technology will also consume significant amounts of energy, contrary to global climate goals.’

Cities and towns including Brussels, parts of Geneva, parts of the US and parts of Europe have banned 5G on health grounds. At least six UK councils are now calling for moratoriums. Litigation is taking place in countries including Australia, the US, and the Netherlands. 5G has been found by Danish lawyers to be illegal under EU law.

5G contravenes the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, The 1982 World Charter for Nature and all ten points of The Nuremberg Code of ethics regarding human experimentation. It also contravenes The UK Equality Act 2010 (Section 149) as higher levels of EMR from 5G base stations will disproportionately affect foetuses, pregnant women, babies, young children and electro-sensitive individuals.

RF wireless radiation was declared a Class 2B ‘possible carcinogen’ in 2011, and many eminent scientists and doctors argue that there is now sufficient evidence to make it a Class 2A ‘probable carcinogen’, or Class 1’ known carcinogen’. "Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings," said IARC Director Christopher Wild in 2011, "it is important that additional research be conducted into the long‐term, heavy use of mobile phones. Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure"

Any benefits of 5G are speculative. The rollout of 5G would expose all citizens, including vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, children, and those with existing health issues, to mandatory microwave radiation 24/7 with no ability to opt out. Such exposure and densification without public consultation or informed consent is a breach of human rights.
