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.
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.
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 wellbeing, the outdoors environment of NZ will change forever.
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
