If you feel like you don’t know enough about the health and environmental risks from 5G, you are not alone. Neither does our government. Nor do the international insurers, who have rejected cover for 5G due to the unassessable risk.
Lets adopt a precautionary approach and have a moratorium on the rollout and adoption of 5G until we have had a public conversation, and the risks and benefits for us, our children and grandchildren can be independently and competently identified and assessed.
Meanwhile I suggest withdrawing support from all telcos who are committed to 5G and supporting those who will listen to the people.

I wouldnt want to be in the Auckland area if I were electrosensitive or concerned about the WHO classification of RFEMR as a class 2B carcinogen ( based on the considerable expert advice, research and analysis in the IARC Monographs Vol 102)… And it’s only going to get worse if 5G is rolled out as overseas reports indicate they will need transmitters ever 100m or so.
Brussels and Geneva have blocked the rollout of 5G due to health concerns.
Elsewhere there are reports of birds falling out of trees and unusual animal behaviour when 6G is rolled out . It would be great if there was a central database of this type of harm but for now it seems to be left to local communities to share this type of information.
The telcos are already applying for blanket exemptions to let them trim/ amputate trees so the branches and leaves don’t block their radiation.
So with all the health, environmental, landscape and security concerns who is pushing 5G and why?
No surprises here, it’s the telcos pushing for profit.
Profit or health, what comes first?
For the telcos it’s profit, for us it’s our health and wellbeing. We will have no choice about managing exposure to their electrosmog.
Various Ministers for the Environment have let us down by giving a blanket approval for all RFEMR emissions which comply with the always controversial and now very dated NZStandard which was written in 1999 ( NZS 2772.1 1999).
It’s not just about more ugly celltowers, the amputation of trees to clear a path for their radiation, and concerns about health and safety.
Serious security concerns
There are also serious security concerns:
The Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) knocked back a proposal by Spark to use Huawei gear in its 5G network in December because of a network security concern, since when Huawei has been at the centre of a spiralling sanction threat from the United States.
A call to action:
We need to stop the rollot of 5G until all the effects and risks can be fully understood and weighed up against any possible benefits.
If “our” government won’t listen to us we will need to make our views clear to the Telcos, and boycott those who are most determined to roll out 5G. Let’s shift our support to the Telcos who listen to us, and let’s tell them why to encourage the others to listen too.
It looks like Vodafone is the most determined to roll out 5G. It seems they don’t plan to ask us our views, so we will have to show them, by boycotting them and shifting to another Telco which is more willing to listen to its clients
“2degrees spokesman Mat Bolland says there is still plenty more that can be done with 4G technology and it believes 2023 would be early enough for the country to adopt 5G.”
5G safety concerns, vandalism of our landscape and trees, security concerns….do we really need it, and if so, why?
Ask us first…..Lets have a moratorium until ALL our questions have been answered…
