Fantastic news follows last Saturday’s “5G Global Day of Protest” in over 250 cities around the world. Communities throughout New Zealand and in at least 25 other countries united in a mass show of “people power”, using education, protests and other activities to highlight the demand for more consultation, community involvement and precaution in adoption of technology such as 5G that affect our trees, bees and babies.
Communities around New Zealand from Kaitaia in the North to Invercargill in the South, including Whangarei, Auckland, Waiheke, Thames, Hamilton, Gisborne, Kapiti Coast, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill joined the international protests.
This global network are asking their governments and local councils to slop the rollout of 5G until community safety and security concerns are addressed, and until we have evidence that any benefits of 5G outweigh the risks.
To date insurers have refused cover for harm from 5G and other RFEMR, because the risks are too great. People all over the world are asking similr questions: “Why should we bear these risks that insurers say are too great, and why are our representatives allowing Telco’s to proceed. Usually our government advocates “Safety before Speed”. Why is it different for the telcos?”
SLOVENIA VOTES FOR LIFE, AT LEAST FOR NOW
At least one government, Slovenia, has listened to its people, to scientists and to other experts. A scheduled four hour meeting was extended and when the evidence was tabled the government listened, agreed and put a halt on the rollout of 5G. 5G rollout in
According to local reports, the Slovenia Ministry of Public Administration called a four-hour Public Consultation on Radiation Aspects in Ensuring the Operation of 5G Technologies. Among the speakers were Gregor Kos, president of the political party, Za zdravo družbo (For a Healthy Society), and Igor Šajn from Stavbna biologija Slovenije (Building Biology of Slovenia).
The four-hour meeting lasted six hours. The Minister for Public Administration, Rudy Medved, announced that Slovenia is officially postponing the implementation of 5G in his country “due to possible health effects of EMFs.”
On Monday, the Prime Minister of Slovenia resigned, which means that there will be new elections held, probably in April. 5G will be the main issue for Gregor Kos’s political party in the elections.
On March 10, his party will bring in scientific experts from other countries for an all-day event on the health and environmental effects of 5G, which will take place in the Slovenia National Council (the upper house of Parliament) and will be broadcast live on national television.
Lets make 5G an election issue in New Zealand too.
Lets listen to and learn from our friends around the world. Lets make 5G and people power an election issue in New Zealand too. We all know that urgent change is needed. Lets create a new style of politics for New Zealand, of the people by the people. Lets put people and the environment before multinational corporations and their short term profit.
So far the Outdoors Party is the only NZ political party that is committed to a moratorium on 5G.
Its time for a new style of representatives, who reflect our values, are experts in their field and who have a history of walking the walk alongside the people.
Its time to get involved in politics and help create the future we want and need.
