Press release from Stop 5G Asheville:
This Saturday, Jan. 25, 12-2 p.m., Stop 5G Asheville will be holding a rally at Vance Monument in Pack Square Park to protest the irresponsible roll-out of 5G. The rally will be followed by a march downtown.
While the media’s attention with regard to environmental issues has been captured by climate change, fracking, and plastics in the ocean, an International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space has been quietly making its way around the world. Signed by 4,800 scientists, 2,800 medical doctors, 770 beekeepers, 2,000 environmental organizations, and 180,000 others from 207 countries and territories, this Appeal calls on the world’s governments to stop the deployment of 5G.
On Jan. 25, environmental groups are planning more than 200 events in over 190 cities in 32 countries so far, with more being added every day. Their goal is to stop the deployment of millions of 5G antennas on Earth and 50,000 5G satellites in space, and to secure emergency high-level meetings with officials in governments and international governmental organizations including the European Union, the United Nations, and the World Health Organization.
The issue is microwave radiation, which has been steadily intensifying for over two decades courtesy of the wireless revolution. 5G will bring a huge increase in radiation, virtually overnight, everywhere—in cities, suburbs, parks, nature preserves, wildlife refuges, oceans, Greenland, and Antarctica. Instead of cell towers every few miles, there will be cell towers — small but powerful — in front of every third to fifth home. Instead of 2,000 satellites orbiting the Earth, there will shortly be 50,000.
The organizers of the events of Jan. 25, include people who have already been so severely injured by wireless devices that they can no longer participate in society at all. They are fighting for their own lives, the lives of their children, and the lives of the insects, birds, animals, and all of us.
