Stop 5G

We the undersigned petition the council to Stop the rollout of 5G in Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole, pending the outcome of an independent investigation into the impact on microbial, plant, animal and human life systems including the impact on the weather systems of the planet's biosphere.

We understand the desire of BCP Council to invest in the growth of the local technology industry, but at what cost human health and the health of all living things?

Frequencies of just 1.8Ghz are known to cause biological effects including: insomnia, sleep problems, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitations, heart arrthymia, infertility, tinnitus, numbness and tingling, diabetes, cancer, permanent DNA damage, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, autism, mood swings and nose bleed.

1G-4G uses frequencies from 1-5GHz but 5G will use a broad range of frequencies including those from 24-300GHz. All living things (people, plants and animals) will be impacted in untold ways by this massive increase in microwave and millimetre wave radiation.

5G uses large MIMO (Massive In Massive Out) transmitters, thousands of satellites and millions of small cell transmitters on lampposts every 150m or so in both urban and rural areas (including right next to our homes) which will be immersing us in high levels of radiation 24/7. With 1G-4G we could limit our exposure by turning off our devices, with 5G transmitters everywhere we cannot avoid being irradiated whether or not we are using 5G devices.

5G is an untested, unregulated and uninsurable technology being rolled out with inadequate public consultation or consent in breach of the Nuremberg Code 1947. The infrastructure is being installed now. The government and corporations have not provided enough information for the public to understand their technological vision of the future.

More than 240 scientists and doctors worldwide have emphasised the potential health risks to the EU:


UK 5G Moratoriums so far:
Glastonbury, Frome, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Shepton Mallet, Wellington & Winchester.

In February 2020 Switzerland's Enivronmental Agency announced a national moratorium on 5G due to environmental and health concerns.
