RFEMR is classified by the WHO as a class 2B carcinogen. However it is deemed to be “safe” if emissions comply with a NZ standard that was created by the Telcos.
Since 2008 various Ministers for the Environment have been serially excluding the public from having a say on if, where and how celltowers and other RFEMR emitters should be located, by deeming emissions within the NZS 2772.1 to be “safe”.
It’s much the same strategy as the RM Exemption Regulations 2017 which deem there are no adverse effects from spreading deadly.poison baits into watercourses, and into our food chain. No adverse effects even when a single bait can kill a toddler, when 12- 15 % of kea are killed on average on each drop and when our honey, milk and food chain are at risk……
When law does not reconcile with reality there will always be protest and dissent.
The government treat the dissenters as troublemakers.
History will treat them as heroes.
