NZ Outdoors Party Policy On 5G

Our Vision: We want to create a country where we are admired by the world not just because of our wonderful natural environment, but because of the way we live. A way of life that protects and enhances that environment.

The NZ Outdoors Party seeks a moratorium on the allocation, auction and rollout of 5G spectrum licences until there has been a full public inquiry into the costs and benefits of 5G, effects on human health and the natural environment and how these can best be avoided or managed.

What are the Outdoors Party objections to 5G?

The NZ Outdoors Party is concerned there has been no public conversation about the risks and benefits of 5G (5th Generation mobile technology) and that much new 5G infrastructure has been exempted from usual RMA processes.

This means there has been no informed consent to the rollout of 5G in our communities and no steps have been  taken to avoid, remedy or mitigate adverse effects on communities or the environment.

What are the risks?


Protest in Northland

In May 2011 the WHO/IARC classified RFEMR as a Class 2B carcinogen. During a recent tour of NZ, world expert Professor Dariusz Lezczynski advised that at the WHO’s next review it is likely that RFEMR will be reclassified at least as a Class2A (probable) carcinogen.

Many other international  scientific and medical experts have warned about health and environmental harm from 5G and international insurers have refused cover for RFEMR.

With cell towers scheduled to go up every 100 meters in the street and high intensity RFEMR emissions threatening human and environmental well being, the outdoors environment of NZ will change forever.

What is the Outdoors Party proposing to do?


The Outdoors Party urges the Government to postpone the allocation of any further 5G spectrum until their has been a full public inquiry by a competent independent panel into the risks and benefits of 5G and long term scientific, medical and environmental assessments on the impacts of 5G in New Zealand, or worldwide, on human health and the wider biosphere. 

Let’s educate ourselves and then let the people of New Zealand make an informed decision on the future of 5G
