Lawsuit Filed Against UK Government to Stop 5G Deployment

Safer Technology Aotearoa New Zealand

May 30, 2021

A group of committed and concerned citizens including doctors, scientists, and engineers throughout the United Kingdom have come together to bring a lawsuit against their government for its failure to protect the health of the country’s citizens, particularly children, from 5G and wireless. The Claimants filed their lawsuit, an application for Judicial Review Proceedings, in the UK’s High Court.

The organization they have formed, Legal Action Against 5G, claims that the government has refused to acknowledge, or even study, the potential harms of 5G infrastructure and allowed and promoted its deployment unlawfully. On their website they wrote: “Our case against the UK government is that due process is not being followed, that the risks are being entirely disregarded. This is a national public health issue.”  Among other things, the group is calling for a moratorium on the rollout of 5G.

The defendants in the case are the UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care; the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; and the Secretary of State for Digital Culture Media and Sport. The named claimants (plaintiffs) in the case include Victoria Angell and Karen Churchill, who live or frequent areas where 5G has already been implemented and “whose health is put at risk by 5G.”

European Parliament: 5G Health Effects and Environmental Impacts

Over the last decades, novel wireless communication technologies, such as mobile telephones, cellular networks and Wi-Fi, have been developed at unparalleled speed. However, 5G, along with 3G and 4G, may also pose threats to human health and the environment. This article outlines the two STOA studies presented to the EU Parliament, which take stock of our present understanding of the impacts of 5G on health and the environment.

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT 5G AND 4G DENSIFICATION IS NOT SAFE

any people ask “Where is the scientific evidence? How do you know that 5G and the deployment of small cells (which usually is 4G) is not safe? Why do you say it is harmful?”  The answer is that an ever growing and large body published research has found adverse effects from wireless radiation. Effects have been found at levels that are legal and permissible. 5G will use frequencies that are currently in use as well as higher frequencies never used in any widespread way.  

Climate Change, 5G and the Internet of Things

Researchers are warning us that the energy consumption of 5G and the IOT is growing and projected to skyrocket. The demand for technology is outstripping the increase in efficiency. The energy consumption will rise sharply due to the ever increasing IOT energy demands at every stage of the lifecycle of 5G equipment, from device manufacture to data centers to data transmissions, and networks.
