STOP 5G Hunger Strike

A hunger strike to stop 5G and to stop Italy from loosening their cell tower radiation limits was launched Tuesday 13 April 2021. It will continue until the final Italian parliamentary vote on wireless radiation threshold limits.

As of April 17, 2021, there are now  over 100 people in a hunger strike in Italy against 5G ! 

A hunger strike to stop 5G and to stop Italy from loosening their cell tower radiation limits was launched Tuesday 13 April 2021. It will continue until the final Italian parliamentary vote on wireless radiation threshold limits. Italy, along with countries such as China, India,  Russia and Switzerland have far more restrictive wireless/cell tower radiation limits compared to the United States, Australia and Japan.  However industry is aggressively working to get these countries to weaken their more restrictive cell tower radiation limits in order to deploy 5G.  The vote could change the Italian wireless radiation thresholds from 6 V / m up to 61 V / m. 

As Dr. Joel Moskowitz points out, “In the U.S., the maximum permissible radio frequency radiation exposure limit for the general population (uncontrolled exposure) is 10 W/m2 (10 watts per square meter) which is equivalent to the ICNIRP limit but 100 times the current limit in Italy.”

“To avoid the tenfold increase in the Italian limits on electromagnetic emissions approved by the Parliamentary Commission, Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G promotes a hunger strike. Activists, politicians, mayors, doctors and technicians have already joined. More than 62,000 signatures collected.”

“What limits are we talking about? Up to now the threshold in Italy has remained fixed at 6 V/m and 0.1 W/m2, but the intention is to bring them respectively to 61 V/m and 10 W/m2, however within the safety limits established by ICNIRP ( International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection). Let us remember that our country is the one that has so far imposed the most severe restrictions on this front among all those in the European bloc. Forcing operators to respect them, on the one hand reduces the emissions of each individual network infrastructure, but on the other pushes the telcos to install more on the territory in order to guarantee adequate coverage.”
