Since 2017 doctors and scientists have been asking for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4).
Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums. Substantial biological, economic, environmental, privacy, public safety, and security risks have been identified with the technology (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15) and the majority of scientists oppose deployment. Nevertheless, deployment continues where it hasn’t been banned including in China.
