Safer Technology Aotearoa New Zealand
In 2020 the Safer Technology Aotearoa/New Zealand Incorporated Society (STANZ) was established and held its first inaugural public meeting in New Brighton, Christchurch at the beginning of August. STANZ is necessary to help lead the local and national campaigns against 5G and other wireless technologies that pollute our environment with Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR). As well as confront the very real threat that Artificial Intelligence poses to humanity and to protect the human rights of those who experience Electro Hypersensitivity. The STANZ Incorporated Society constitution outlines the specific purpose and objectives of the society.
Society’s Purpose and Objectives
The purpose of the Society is to inform, educate and advocate in the public interest including, but not exclusively, to policy makers, regulatory bodies, educationalists, the medical and scientific community as well as local, regional and central government, about the safe use of technology.
