Let’s have a moratorium until we can have an inquiry into 5G, and let’s have it now, before yet another public resource, microwave spectrum bandwidths, is allocated to multinationals.
The Australian public and the great work by Ray Broomhall and others, plus a few public interest focused MPs have forced an inquiry into 5G there.
“On 13 September 2019 the Minister for Communications, Hon Paul Fletcher MP asked the Committee to inquire into and report on the deployment, adoption and application of 5G in Australia.”
It’s not comprehensive, but at least it’s a step towards assessing the need and public costs and benefit of the new application of this military microwave technology before it is imposed on communities and our environment 24/7. That, plus the international reports of Swiss cities and Brussels rejecting 5G and serial reports of tree amputations, birds falling out of trees and mass community nosebleeds when 5G is turned on, should be more than enough to raise red flags here in New Zealand with any competent independent decision maker.
/https://cities-today.com/dutch-cities-slam-central-governments-5g-proposals/ Eight of the largest Dutch cities are also revolting against 6G and the telco- focused way their government is trying to roll it out there.
Now American expert Joel Moskowitz of Berkley has warned against adopting 5g until more safety testing is done
Unfortunately it seems our NZ government copies Australia when it suits them, but not when it suits us.
Let’s have an NZ moratorium on the rollout of 5G until we’ve had a competent and independent inquiry to assess if:
- we need it (as we already have invested billions into fibre optic cable);
- The risks, benefits and uncertainties.
- The consequences of 5G for our trees, bees and us.
- The security and economic risk if it goes wrong
- Whether technology aimed at driverless cars, more complex video games, the internet of things and promoting articifial intelligence ahead of our increasingly dumbed down chronically unwell real people promotes our vision for the future
- If 5G has ” social licence”
Let’s send submissions to our government (c/o firstname.lastname@example.org) in anticipation of the 5g inquiry “our” government don’t want to have.
Surely it’s better to get proactive and have this inquiry now, rather than have a retrospective inquiry in 5 or 10 years to try to understand where everything went so wrong and what opportunities were missed to promote community and environmental wellbeing and a happy, compassionate and engaged community.
We have already invested heavily in fibre optic cable to ensure we have good technology
Surely there is no urgency. We invested heavily on fibre optic cable- over $2 billion of public funds were allocated by August 2017.
The government facilitated this with funding and law changes. Was this investment not adequately thought through, or is the hype about us needing 5g just Telco marketing spin?
If we went wrong or were misled then, it’s important to correct the weak links and get our country back on track as soon as possible.
Our path from real to digital has been fast and it’s already been expensive and complex. Let’s choose the next steps carefully.
Let’s have a moratorium to give us time for an inquiry so the public can have a say in the environmental, social and economic impacts and whether we really do want and need to select for artificial intelligence and more than we want or need artificial foods.
We are lucky to have a visit and public speaking tour soon from world 5G expert Prof Dariusz Lesczyznski who was on the WHO/IARC panel that classified RFEMR as a Class 2B carcinogen. Our NZ Interagency Advisory Committee on the Health Effects on Non-Ionising Radiation seems to have overlooked the volumes of research which went into that classification. This is an opportunity for them to meet with and ask questions from one of the WHO’s advisors.
Prof Lesczyznski has also offered to meet with key Ministers who are responsible for the 5G rollout. Let’s see if they are open to meet, listen and learn from this world expert.
