EU Commission admits new European Citizens’ Initiative
The European Commission decided to admit our European Citizen’s Initiative Stop (((5G))) – Stay connected but protected and registered it on 7 October 2021. This ECI was submitted by Europeans for Safe Connections. The initiative requests the EU Commission to make better legislation because of the adverse effects of wireless communication. 5G is being deployed to facilitate an Internet of Things that will be omnipresent without any assessment of possible adverse effects for environment, privacy, or health.
This European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI) will give a voice to the millions of European citizens that are worried about the seemingly unstoppable deployment of 5G and all its unwanted effects.
Wireless communication already has a big impact on life. With the deployment of 5G and the Internet of Things this impact will grow overwhelmingly. The EU countries and the EU itself ignore the many immense adverse effects to be expected and some already encountered.
That’s why in this ECI Europeans for Safe Connections demand the EU to protect our health, our environment and our digital rights by establishing:
- regulations to protect all life from radio frequency and microwave radiation
- stronger regulation to protect the environment from all the impacts of 5G and digitalization
- effective data protection to safeguard our privacy, security, and freedom
Europeans for Safe Connections will soon announce when the collection of signatures for Stop (((5G))) – Stay Connected but Protected will start.
What exactly is a European Citizens’ Initiative or ECI?
A European Citizens’ Initiative is a democratic way for citizens to directly influence the EU by proposing new laws to the European Commission. Soon after the registration by the EU Commission the ECI will be open to sign for all Europeans entitled to vote. There is 1 year to gather the signatures for the Initiative.
When the Initiative has reached over 1 million legal signatures, the European Commission is obliged to consider the proposals and the ECI will also be discussed in the European Parliament.
Who are Europeans for Safe Connections?
Europeans for Safe Connections is a coalition of national and international organizations that are aware of adverse consequences of the modern communication technologies. We are not against technology, but we are pro safe technology and safe connections.
To make our ECI a success it is most important to get broad support from many different organizations, associations and groups who will work together to collect at least one million signatures.
