'In February, telecom industry representatives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they could provide no scientific evidence that 5G technology is safe. Plenty of research has determined it’s not safe. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently warned that increasing levels of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) could lead to increased health issues for 30% of the population. Experts have warned about this before. Other health experts – including the American Academy of Pediatrics – have been warning for years now that children are more affected by exposure than adults.
It doesn’t make sense that despite all of this (and more) 5G is still being promoted and unleashed around the world. Opposition is growing, though – including in the town of Glastonbury, England whose council has voted against installing it there for now.
The new speedy 5G mobile network is set to be trialled at this year’s Glastonbury festival for the very first time.
The event, which will run from June 26 to June 30, will host over 200,000 music lovers.
They will be some of the first people to test the latest mobile network before it is rolled out across several cities in the UK later this year – as long as they have a phone that is compatible with 5G.
But some campaigners have set up a petition for it to be banned at the world-famous festival, which 3,000 people have signed. They say they’re worried about how safe the new technology is.
Residents of Glastonbury town have also expressed concerns over 5G. The issue has even been taken up with the local authorities. Now, Glastonbury council is looking into it and has voted against the introduction of 5G in the town for now.
