Eco Pax Mundi Agora Sides with Arthur Firstenberg in Raising the Alarm with the Switch to 5G Technology
As far as Eco Pax Mundi Agora is concerned, we are alarmed at what's coming with 5G technology. This is how we see it:
(1) The technology is based on a military weapon designed to exterminate the so-called enemy;
(2) You need an untold number of antennas to make 5G technology work. Moreover, we go from 'passive antennas' to 'active antennas': what will be the impact of these upon the built environment, 'nature' and wilderness alike? It appears that in Passeig the Gracia in central Barcelona extra lamp posts have been overnight installed to accommodate 5G antennas. In parts of Mexico 5G antennas have been stealthily set up during lockdown:
(3) There is a planned fleet of 12,000 satellites to be sent out to outer space as part of the technology: what will be the impact of all these satellites for life on Earth?
(4) Given the novelty of it all no one can for certain discard, as suggested by Arthur Firstenberg, that the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on health may be enhanced by 5G technology exposure. In view of the plural hazards with which we are surrounded, a multifactor approach seems to me wiser that a monofactor one (precautionary principle);
There are billions of dollars involved in 5G technology: telecom
multinationals will sweep any evidence of its deleterious effects
under the carpet.
Eco Pax Mundi Agora is seriously considering discontinuing the use of mobile phones on 20-21 June 2020 as part of the 'ECHOEarth—End Cellphones Here on Earth' campaign: https://www.echoearth.org/
This is a serious issue: we need to unite to stop this – the damage will be untold, and, Eco Pax Mundi Agora believes, probably irreversible. We don't have a Planet B where to retreat and live happily dreaming of an ecocentric future. This is the greed of multinationationals and the blind belief in technological progress determining the life, or perhaps death, of each one of us (human and more-than-human) on this planet, here and now.

Stop 5G on Earth and in Space
There are 287,352 signatories from 217 nations and territories
as of May 22nd, 2020
To the UN, WHO, EU, Council of Europe
and governments of all nations
We the undersigned scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens from (__) countries, urgently call 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.
Telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale. We will have “smart” homes, “smart” businesses, “smart” highways, “smart” cities and self-driving cars. Virtually everything we own and buy, from refrigerators and washing machines to milk cartons, hairbrushes and infants’ diapers, will contain antennas and microchips and will be connected wirelessly to the Internet. Every person on Earth will have instant access to super-high-speed, low- latency wireless communications from any point on the planet, even in rainforests, mid-ocean and the Antarctic.
What is not widely acknowledged is that this will also result in unprecedented environmental change on a global scale. The planned density of radio frequency transmitters is impossible to envisage. In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000 new satellites in space, 200 billion transmitting objects, according to estimates, will be part of the Internet of Things by 2020, and one trillion objects a few years later. Commercial 5G at lower frequencies and slower speeds was deployed in Qatar, Finland and Estonia in mid-2018. The rollout of 5G at extremely high (millimetre wave) frequencies is planned to begin at the end of 2018.
Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.
If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet. These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems.
Immediate measures must be taken to protect humanity and the environment, in accordance with ethical imperatives and international agreements.
