United Kingdom: EMF/RF/5G Resistance Part 3 of 3, History in the Making

by Patricia Burke of Safe Tech International


Worldwide, governments have aligned with ”the industry-tied unscientific lobby organization ICNIRP”  (the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) to justify the safety of wireless devices and infrastructure, including towers and antennas.

The tide is turning, however, as the ICNIRP agenda is no longer being accepted carte blanche.

“United Kingdom: EMF/RF/5G Resistance & Recent Progress, Part 1 of 3,” looked at the implications of a recent decision in Frome. The UK’s Karen Churchill explained, “When considering other effects from long term exposure to RFR (radio frequency radiation) on the environment and vulnerable groups, councils must consider other sources of evidence about the known hazards and apply the EU Precautionary Principle” (sources other than ICNIRP).

The Court of Turin (Italy) has also rejected the opinion of ICNIRP’s unscientific lobby.

 “EMF/RF/5G Spotlight On The UK: By The Numbers Part 2 Of 3” featured an overview of various news headlines and statistics indicative of resistance to the installation of masts (towers and antennas) by an informed populace in the UK.

A quick glance at continuing efforts in the UK to address unsafe technology demonstrates that many local councils are responding to concern from the public and rejecting tower applications, and that some decision-makers are taking into account health concerns, rather than blindly applying outdated, irrelevant, and unsafe exposure guidelines which have never actually been studied and tested for 5G.

In addition. news coverage of opposition to telecoms appears to much more complete and free of industry influence in the U.K. than it is in the United States, for example, the Nov. 10 Coventry Live coverage of “5G Mast ‘Monstrosity’ Removed From Coventry Road”

Image source: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/local-news/joy-5g-mast-monstrosity-removed-25433876 The 15-metre pole was put up less than 4m away from one house and on a small green in front of eight homes.

In the United States, local decision makers continue to be constrained by FCC guidance, which is also aligned with industry, and outdated and irrelevant for current exposures. As noted in an October report by the Intercept. Homeland Security in the U.S. has been monitoring discussion 5G as a security threat, leading engaged activists to question whose security is at stake.

An informed public is aware that many of the errors that were made in the “Age of Chemistry” outlined by Rachel Carson in her book “Silent Spring” are being repeated within the “Age of Radio-frequencies.” This includes concerns about chronic, cumulative, and juxtaposed exposures and vulnerable populations.  Both human health and the environment are at risk.

UK Historic Legal Case Against 5G

As noted in part 2 of the 3 part UK series, “Campaigners are bringing a historic legal case against the UK Government, challenging the irresponsibility of continuing to allow unacceptable levels of exposure to electro-magnetic radiation that will not protect us from known harm, and takes no account of the cumulative effects of the unseen hazardous electro-smog from multiple sources.”

Barrister Michael Mansfield is “one of the most highly venerated Barristers of our time.”  “The Legal 500 recently described Michael Mansfiend as “the king of human rights work”[ ] Michael Mansfield QC is leading the legal team and is one of the most venerated barristers of our time. He has led legal teams in high profile cases of civil liberty and miscarriages of justice and has represented the families of Grenfell Tower, Lockerbie, the Ballymurphy Massacre and Stephen Lawrence.”

Why People are Concerned

People in the UK are becoming increasingly alarmed as they learn of the serious implications of the 5G roll-out: to their own health, the environment and all biological life. No one wants a mast emitting high levels of radiation outside their home, their child’s school or their place of work. The ‘benefits’ claimed by the telecoms industry come at a very high price.

5G radiation will be sent from advanced antennas, in phased arrays, that transmit microwaves in narrow beams, a technology originally developed for military purposes. This will massively increase the exposure to radiation from those beams. Those beams will be nearly everywhere.

The wireless telecoms industry intend to outfit nearly every lamp post or utility post around the country with wireless small cell antennas beaming hazardous radiation next to, or into, our homes, schools, work places and everywhere, 24/7 as well as intensifying  4G throughout the countryside.- https://actionagainst5g.org/

Three Videos: Legal Action Against 5G

1. Ecological Threats of the Connected World and 5G—Part 1 Miguel Coma on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of 5G.  (21 minutes)

“He currently works as an IT Architect, writer, speaker and consultant. After two decades in Information and Communication Technologies, Miguel began researching their impacts on our climate, environment and health. He collaborates with an international network of experts in engineering, physics, biology, environmental sciences and philosophy to support his work. He writes, speaks and consults about 5G wireless technology, and contributed to the engineering research on 5G energy usage at the UCLouvain university, Belgium. Miguel writes about technology and the environment for Wall Street International magazine. He published an extensive independent report on 5G and a carte blanche in the national newspaper l’Echo, co-signed by personalities and organizations demanding to deploy 5G in a sustainable way. He provided technical and environmental advice to 5G experts of the Wallonia government, of the Brussels Region Citizens’ 5G Committee, and is a member of the AlterNumeris think-tank.”

See the article “More evidence needed to establish 5G’s green credentials.” “Widespread expectations that 5G will be a green technology are not currently backed up by a strong, publicly available, fully transparent evidence base, warns a review of the evidence on 5G energy use impacts by academics at the University of Sussex Business School.”

2. Ecological Threats of the Connected World and 5G—Part 2 Professor Tom Butler on international regulation of radio frequency radiation (RFR), which ignores scientific studies about biological impacts. (14 minutes)

“Professor Tom Butler MSc PhD is ranked in the top two percent of scientists by discipline globally. His funded research focusses on operational risk, specifically R&D on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for risk and compliance in the financial industry.

A former Government of Ireland Fellow focusing on green technologies, Tom also investigates the risks that technologies pose to society, including the risks of adverse health effects that wireless technologies present to humans. Here, Tom engages with a global group of independent multi-disciplinary researchers in assessing the risk to public health from wireless radiation, including 5G.”

Reduce Energy Costs: Stop The 5g Rollout by Philippa Winkler, Professor in International Relations Is posted on the News page of the website for the lawsuit.


“ The price of electricity increased by 80% in October 2022. Even with government subsidies, a household with typical energy use will pay on average around £2,500 a year on their gas and electricity bill. Small businesses will be more likely to suffer from price hikes than large corporations.

In light of these increased costs, the telecoms’ 5G rollout is unimaginably reckless. 5G consumes up to four times the amount of electricity as 4G, most of which is powered by fossil fuels. Its technology is energy-intensive due to the proliferation of elements including baseband units, remote radio heads, small cells and core networks. 

5G is designed to power data-heavy apps such as in industrial production, entertainment, gambling, transportation, surveillance and healthcare.

The business case for 5G is based on the promise of higher profits.

One energy-reduction solution is very simple: halt the 5G rollout across the UK. Oppose new masts and the government’s plan to install 5G on street furniture such as lampposts and bus shelters.

Urge the government to re-invest in our copper telephone landline network which is a reliable and safe alternative to power-grid dependent, energy-hungry communications systems like 5G.” – Philippa Winkler
