5G - Suspend and review rollout of 5G infrastructure

Cease 5G mobile phone infrastructure rollout until health concerns are properly investigated

Why is this important?

5G infrastructure requires thousands of antennas and small cell towers to operate effectively. They use high frequency millimetre waves (“MMWs”).

Over 240 scientists and doctors from 41 nations who have published research in the field have appealed to the United Nations calling for urgent action to reduce these ever growing wireless exposures and they wrote the FCC for a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G citing the serious risks to human health and the environment (

Given the ongoing discussions regarding the science and health issues around the rollout of 5G infrastructure, we call on the government and mobile phone service providers and their contractors to cease and desist from any rollout of 5G until independent peer reviewed research proves that 5G is safe for humans, plants and animals without any adverse effects.

This petition is being run by a member of the public, and not the 38 Degrees team.

How it will be delivered

I will arrange to deliver the petition to Downing Street and to each of the companies who are being petitioned.

Update on legal campaign (cont'd) - continued text for update

In the meantime, there are three immediate actions we need to take:

- Object to the UK government’s investment in OneWeb;
- Object to OneWeb’s new filing (since the UK government invested in the bankrupt company) to launch 42,000 satellites (to match SpaceX’s permission also to launch 42,000 satellites); and
- Make representations on a consultation opened until October about legislation for satellites which would include 5G satellites.

There is much work to do and not much time in which to do it. I will send more about these objections etc later.

While some funds have been raised already, it is still below halfway to the £150,000 which I am trying to raise for this campaign.

Update on legal campaign (cont'd) - Fifth of 5 updates

Finally, I will write to you more later about this – but the UK government has just spent £500m (on 27 July) investing in the bankrupt OneWeb which was building 5G satellites for 45% of the company. The government made this investment against the advice of the UK Space Agency and of the relevant department’s Accounting Officer who said that the investment was not “value for money”. A shocking waste of taxpayer’s money.

A company has just got planning permission to build a space port in Scotland and the government has given permission for satellites to be launched from that port. The UK Space Agency has been working on a plan to launch 5G satellites over the UK at least since 2018 that I can find. I will send more information on this with links to read soon.

Update on legal campaign (cont'd) - Fourth of 5 updates

Our legal team continues to consider taking legal action against DHSC/PHE.

While I have seen some objections to the PDR consultation, if any of you made objections, please send them to me asap at [email protected] as they may be helpful in any eventual legal action.

I know that some of you have contributed hugely and generously already. And you would be right to think that a one off contribution should suffice. But, the problem with this situation is that it is like an onion, with many layers and one has to peel off each layer of the onion skin to get at the different parts which form this brutal and inhumane treatment of humanity and our environment. You have all so far been fantastic. I am trying to do all that I can, but I cannot do this alone.

Update on legal campaign (cont'd) - Third of 5 updates

Our legal team obtained some copies of objections to the PDR public consultation which demonstrated the overwhelming submissions of adverse health consequences to humans, bees, trees and birds from such a reckless proposal. The government’s decision barely commented on such representations quoting the usual PHE stance which is known to be deeply flawed and unfit for purpose.

A key part of the legal campaign is to change government policy on the roll out of 5G. Therefore, our legal team has decided to challenge this decision making process through the medium of judicial review promptly and, to that end, have sent a letter before action to the Secretaries of State for the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and for the Department of Housing, Communities and Local Government. Do see it below.

That would mean, among other things, that planning permission would no longer be needed for masts, antennae and equipment which can then be erected in town centres, neighbourhoods and conservation areas at will and mobile service providers can proliferate this equipment across the country with no oversight by anyone.

The decision includes proposals to “Enable higher new masts to deliver better mobile coverage and mast sharing, subject to prior approval and specified limits”. It is not clear what this means but I have already seen a number of applications for massive 60 foot structures with multiple masts on them currently being made and from this decision it looks like it will be made easier for these types of structures to proliferate in our neighbourhoods.

Update on legal campaign – 27.8.20 – First of 5 updates

You will recall that my legal campaign is to, among other things, change government policy on the roll out of 5G – details of the campaign are at

During the time that our legal team has been considering taking legal action against the Secretary of State for the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England, the government has made the decision to remove the need for planning permission for masts, antennae and equipment. Do see further below.

They did this after consulting with the public over permitted development rights (“PDR”) which ended in November, 2019.

Update 12.6.20

5G summit expert question time live tonight

There was a live question time with experts at the 5G summit tonight. Do see the link below.

It has a number of different perspectives in 2 hours and is interesting to listen and to see the various points of view.

2020-05-23 14:10:58 +0100

We now have £43,180 on the crowdfunding site with 1,350 donations. This is a fantastic achievement with only 12 days to go. We need to get to £150,000 for this case so do keep distributing the link far and wide. Thank you so much for your support which is deeply appreciated.

For those of you interested in the science behind the concerns about 5G, there is an online 5G summit organised by Green Med Info on 1 June. Entry is free. Dr Martin Pall of Washington State University has also written a book about 5G Risk. The link below will take you to his free book and a free place on the summit.

We now have £38,933 on the crowdjustice site.

This is a fantastic endeavour and I encourage you all to continue to spread the word far and wide.

I thought that it may interest you to know that yesterday, there was an inaugural online meeting of lawyers around the world, all working on fighting the roll out of 5G and the satellites which will dowse the earth with radiofrequency radiation. There were at least 30 lawyers in the session. There is a tremendous movement to help each other during these times.

There is a momentum which is building which is exciting and encouraging. We do need to get to £150,000 so please continue to help as much as you can.

Do see the article in the Ham and High regarding the crowd funding campaign.

Do keep supporting the fundraising at the link below:

2020-05-05 18:55:30 +0100

We are raising funds to take legal action against the Secretary of State of the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England. Do see the CrowdJustice link below.

You will see on the target an initial target of £50,000 and a stretch target of £150,000. We really need at least £150,000 for the costs to the end of the hearing. The application will be for judicial review and will be aimed at obtaining a stop to the roll out of 5G infrastructure.

There are 30 days from today to reach £50,000 otherwise I cannot start at all but ultimately we need to reach £150,000.

If you are interested in helping us reach our targets, please donate to the site.

Masts and antennae are proliferating across the country at an exponential rate. Prof Butler explains why the current levels are too high and the impact on our health and that of our children and he questions how our government and Public Health England can deem these technologies to be safe.

5G and fertility collapse - do see the article below.

The impact of electromagnetic frequencies on the sperm count of men and the quality of eggs in women is well researched and known. Dr Martin Pall of Washington State University predicts a collapse in the fertility of humankind within 10 years of the rollout of 5G which EMFs will range from 700mHz to 60GHz and above.

We are told it is safe by all government agencies and by mobile service providers. Well, read below, set out in lay person's terms by an ex-lecturer of Imperial College in 2012 explaining the myriad of problems and damage to us humans.
