5G should be banned worldwide. Why do they feel no remorse about killing all life on our planet? Too bizarre. Please wake up world in time to stop this madness.

If it is not stopped legally then I am certain there will be a huge, long overdue coming together of all people and matters will escalate to the point where public destruction of smart towers across the planet will be the only recourse, and in my view should catalyse a taking back of power by the collective populations of all de facto totalitarian governments.

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.

Will the study be independent? Who is doing the study? If the study is organized or sponsored by anyone aligned with developing 5G, IoT, AI, it is a total waste of time and money

Research is now in its an extreme health hazard to all lifeform (kills it ) why would you not ban 5G
Carmel Taylor @ 10/8/2019 - 10:59

Other countries have banned it due to serious health issues. So should Australia Wide!
