Legal Action and Councils

The public has not been consulted on whether or not it wants 5G. The rollout of 5G entails mandatorily subjecting every member of the public to 5G exposure, with especially high levels in cities.

Currently litigators are working in the US and Australia on behalf of those affected by 5G; in Australia cases are made on the grounds of ‘assault and technological trespass.’

In the UK some groups are beginning to look into crowdfunding legal action whilst others are attempting to hold local councils to account. Councillors claim no obligation but as they contract the suppliers and the central government has given the responsibility to local councils to contract out, for example, lampposts, this is not in fact the case. Councils and mayors have a duty of care to their citizens.

Communities are being advised on taking Class Actions and public interest challenges whereby government and local councils are the defendants, for example against a local council, since on the one hand, it is a commercial partner of companies that develop and operate infrastructure (and pay for the use of council property and street lights to site base stations and antenna), versus its obligations to residents as regards human health and environmental protection.

Notices of Liability will be lodged by individual residents targeting telecoms companies and infrastructure providers. Freedom of Information requests should be answered when submitted.


In February 2019, national planning laws were changed to accommodate 5G demands: National Plamnning Policy Framework pp33-34 These effectively prevent local councils from refusing installation of 5G infrastructure and the amendments make it very difficult for householders to prevent 5G-enabled antennas from being installed in the street where they live, or even on the walls of their homes.


Some Potential Ammunition

The Nuremberg Code of 1947 states that experiments cannot be performed on human populations without informed consent.

Shareholders in telecoms companies are warned about changing values caused by safety concerns: As Vodafone notes in the 2017 annual report: “Electromagnetic signals emitted by mobile devices and base stations can pose health risks with potential consequences, including: changes in national legislation, a reduction in mobile phone use or litigation.” Deutsche Telekom also warns its Shareholders said there was “a risk of regulatory intervention, such as lowering electromagnetic field limits or implementing precautionary measures in mobile communications”.

The “legal information” supplied by phone manufacturers advise keeping the phone an inch from the body. ‘Failure to do so may cause your smartphone to exceed the specified limits.’

Insurance companies will not insure for wireless radiation damage due to ‘high impact risk.’
