INTERNATIONAL APPEAL to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space

The International Appeal to the UN, WHO, EU, Council of Europe and governments of all nations urgently calls for a halt to the deployment of the 5G (fifth generation) wireless network, including 5G from space satellites.

“5G will massively increase exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation on top of the 2G, 3G and 4G networks for telecommunications already in place. RF radiation has been proven harmful for humans and the environment. The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.”

The signatories to this Appeal are scientists, doctors and environmental organisations from every continent who have been working tirelessly for many years to call the world’s attention to an invisible assault on our biosphere.

Everyone — not just scientists and doctors — are now being asked to sign the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space.

Petition | Stop Mobile Towers Staining Australia’s World Heritage Landscapes

The saturation of mobile phone towers proposed for Wollumbin (Mount Warning), Border Ranges, Nightcap Ranges, Mullumbimby, Byron Bay and surrounding Hinterlands is staining the integrity of these landscapes.

Mobile phone towers are being placed in environmentally sensitive areas within the calderas and corridors of these magnificent places of complex and ancient biodiversity.

“These rainforests hold half of Australia’s plant species” (National Geographic).

The regions also have significant ongoing cultural and ceremonial heritage for the Bundjalung Nation.

If you support stopping massive towers going up in these World Heritage-listed parks and surrounding landscapes, and would like to sign the petition, go here.

This petition has the support of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment (ISDE), a professional organisation made up of professors, doctors, scientists and researchers representing 26 countriesISDE supports this petition based on medical evidence and the Precautionary Principle.

Wireless Silent Spring | The Bulletin (Santa Clara County Medical Association)

“And it’s not just pigeons — have you seen any sparrows or parrots around, since these towers started springing up?”  K. Pazhaniappan, Secretary, New Madras Racing Pigeon Association

Wireless Radiofrequency Affects Navigation of Birds and Bees

It is well known that magnetite, a form of iron ore, is found in a wide variety of organisms. It has been shown that this substance is used to sense the earth’s low energy magnetic field as a directional reference. Magnetite acts as an internal compass. For over 50 years, scientists have known that migratory birds use the earth’s magnetic field to navigate. As it turns out, a diverse array of animal life also relies upon this geomagnetic field as their GPS for breeding, feeding, migration and survival.

Biologists have unexpectedly discovered that wireless radiofrequency radiation (RFR) disturbs internal magneto-receptors used for orientation. In addition, this non ionizing radiation can have profound impacts on the natural environment by disruption of other complex cellular and biologic processes in mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, insects, trees, plants, seeds and bacteria. Reported adverse effects from radiofrequency radiation that have been identified include abnormal behavior, developmental abnormalities, diminished reproduction and increased mortality. The effects of this radiation may not be immediately apparent with a slow decline in the health of wildlife seen over time with cumulative exposure, adding a new environmental toxin contributing to silent springs in cities, orchards and farms. The more towers, the more additive mix of radiation frequencies saturating the environment, creating an increasingly toxic air space. Non thermal biological effects are not considered in current guidelines. Appropriate safety testing and regulation of this technology is lacking, however, invention, commercialization and deployment of cell towers marches on – 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G.

The Skrunda Radio Location Case

Firstenberg (2017) in his fascinating and well-referenced book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life, describes both observations and biological controlled experiments performed, mostly in Europe, where a high power early warning Radio Location Station tower was in place for over 25 years. Studies performed during and after the tower was removed demonstrated that it caused not only human symptoms including documented memory, attention and motor deficits in children but also affected widespread forest health with loss of birds, thinner growth rings on trees, poor seed germination, loss of duckweed, among other effects. When these towers were removed, not only did the health of the local residents improve, the forest recovered.

Bird Migration Disrupted More by Weak Magnetic Fields

Biologists have discovered that birds’ magnetic compass orientation appears more vulnerable to weak broadband electromagnetic fields. A German scientist, Svenja Engles (2014) lead the research project to confirm this effect. He and his German graduate students exposed migratory European robins to the background electromagnetic noise present in unscreened wooden huts at the University of Oldenburg city campus and found the birds were confused and could not orient using their magnetic compass. If grounded or screened with aluminium their orientation reappeared, but disappeared again if broadband radiofrequencies were generated inside the huts. He did not believe the effects at first and repeated the same double-blinded experiment many times in 7 years and with different graduate students to confirm the effect before publishing his results.
