54,000 Germans petition Parliament to stop 5G auction on health grounds
Telecompaper, 8 April 2019
A petition asking the German Parliament to stop the award of 5G frequencies has reached 54,643 signatures, surpassing the quorum, according to an environmental campaign group called ‘Diagnose: Funk’. The German Parliament may decide to suspend the procedure to award 5G frequencies based on “scientifically justified doubts about the safety of this technology”, according to the petition.
Scientists and doctors have warned against a nationwide introduction of 5G mobile standards, the petition said. In particular, the new 5G standard uses millimeter waves up to 200 GHz. This radiation is absorbed by the human skin or plant leaves, carrying the risk of cancer, cellular stress and genetic changes, among other diseases, according to the petition.

Jörn Gutbier, chairman of diagnostose: funk, recalls that to date there is no technology assessment for 5G. Jörn Gutbier continues: “The Petitions Committee must immediately implement the petition’s demands. Many renowned scientists criticize the 5G expansion as a field trial, most recently last night in the 3sat show ‘nano’. The fact that more than 50,000 people are calling for the 5G construction stop within one week shows just how great the concern about cell phone radiation and the possible health consequences is. ”
Last night’s 3sat science show ‘nano’ (4.4.2019) featured leading scientists who warn of the already known risks of mobile phone radiation and urge further research.

The concern of the over 54,000 petition signatories must be taken seriously by the Bundestag, the treatment of the petition may not be dragged out. The rapporteur of the Committee on Petitions must propose the application of the rule in section 7.13.2 of the procedural principles: “In the event of a contested measure being forthcoming, it may be proposed in particular to request the Federal Government or the competent authority (No 5) to suspend the operation until the Petitions Committee has decided on the appeal. “This means: Immediate suspension of the current 5G frequency auction is possible, especially as there is no technology assessment for 5G to date.
Furthermore, diagnose: funk demands a Bundestag hearing on the risk status of 5G. To this end, the Bundestag must invite independent scientists and consumer protection organizations.
Jörn Gutbier, chairman of diagnostose: funk: “Especially at 5G shows how the study situation is distorted by the influence of the mobile phone lobby. The Federal Government’s opinion on the risks is based on trivializing and false information. But the population can no longer be deceived, as shown by the success of this petition. ”
