Solstice Protests to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 23, 2021
On the weekend before Solstice, 19-20th of June, people from across the world stood up to demand an immediate halt to 5G on Earth and in Space. Their message: “We do not consent to a few powerful technology and satellites companies dictating the future of all life on Earth.” South Africa, India, Japan, the US, Canada, The UK, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Peru were amongst those staging Events, ranging from Candlelight Vigils, Sit-ins and Demonstrations to Stands/Picnics in the Park and Beach Events.
The 5G/satellite/internet of things/data/AI juggernaut entails the manufacturing, use, and disposal of thousands of satellites in space, millions of new transmitters on Earth, and trillions of IoT gadgets, devices, appliances and “things,” that together pose one of the greatest threats of all human-generated health, environmental and privacy assaults. Though being sold to the public to address climate change, the gargantuan global technology footprint is itself a major contributor to environmental devastation.
5G and satellites also play an integral role in the weaponization and commercial use of space and are being used to increase the lethality of war. Protestors oppose the use of trillions of dollars being poured into waging war and are calling for the money to be spent on programs that address essential needs such as world hunger, pollution, the environment, and peace.
While opposing wireless proliferation, 5G/satellite opponents support safe wired connections for most internet and telecommunications use, reserving wireless for emergencies and essential services not possible through wires.
On the Solstice itself, June 20/21 (depending on where you live), there was a globally synchronized Solstice Envisioning Meditation where people initiated the process of change to a more life-affirming and balanced future where technology is soft to humans and Planet.
