Stop 5G and all other microwave telecoms technology until they are proven safe

Doctors, scientists and experts on microwave weapons and telecommunications technologies continue to express serious concerns that pulsed microwave emitting devices are causing permanent DNA damage, cancers, symptoms identical to ME/ CFS, infertility, and other serious human and animal health problems.  Microwave emitters also kill trees, insects and other life-forms on the planet even at low power levels. 

Examples of common microwave devices include cordless DECT phones, wifi routers, mobile phone signals (including 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G), baby monitors, smart meters and other 'smart' devices, the TETRA digital comms system in the UK and the new 5G (fifth generation) microwave mobile phone wavelengths being deployed around the world now.

Amazon has plans for 3,236 5G satellites and intends to begin service as soon as 578 are in orbit. SpaceX, based in the United States, has plans for 42,000 satellites, has already launched 120, intends to launch 60 at a time twice a month during 2020.  Facebook has plans for thousands of satellites but has not disclosed its plans to the public.  With tens or even hundreds of thousands of 5G satellites saturating the planet in microwaves there will literally be nowhere for humans and wildlife to hide from their damaging effects.

Scientific evidence of the dangers of microwaves, even at low power levels, to human life and all life forms including animals, insects and trees has existed since the 1950s and 60s (see Dr Barrie Trower and many others).  The often-quoted ICNIRP regulations referring to the thermal effects of microwaves on the body do not address the the more concerning biological effects of microwave radiation and are regularly cited by politicians and those with vested interests in the industry who simply reiterate ICNIRP standards as a stock defence against criticism of 5G and other harmful EMF radiation.  This continual defence is what has maintained a culture of acceptance of technologies that are – by independent scientific opinion – currently causing harm to the global population and biosphere. 

Microwaves – including low power sources – are reported to harm or kill trees, insects (including the bee population), birds and other wildlife, and cause permanent DNA damage and cancers in humans.  This is completely unacceptable as the planet continues to struggle against pollution, erosion of human health and environmental destruction in the name of corporate profit.

We call on the governments of the world to employ the precautionary principle and bring an immediate halt to the deployment of 5G microwave technologies, including plans to launch thousands of 5G emitting satellites, until all microwave emitters are proven - by completely independent research - to be safe to all life-forms on the planet.
