Introduction to the Detailed Annex
Because of the many hazards arising from 5G we call for a moratorium on the deployment of 5G, including 5G from space satellites, until its adverse effects on health, the environment and digital rights have been fully investigated.
The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment, since there are no studies that prove RF EMF to be safe and 5G has not been tested on health and environmental impacts before being put on the market.
This request is in line with
- the 2020 Consensus Statement of UK and International Medical and Scientific Experts and Practitioners on Health Effects of Non-Ionising Radiation
(Updated in October 2022: A new study *1 by Nils Rainer Nyberg, Julie E. McCredden, Steven G. Weller and Lennart Hardell points out that since September 2017, the EU 5G Appeal has been sent six times to the EU, requesting a moratorium on the rollout of 5G and as they say: "This document thus bears witness to an unfolding global health tragedy which may yet be prevented, but only if the EU and governments can untangle themselves from corporate binds and only if wisdom can prevail over the current world-wide, deep-seated, naive faith in technology to save mankind from all its ailments in the 21st century." )
