Brussels and Geneva ban rollout of 5G for health reasons and call for investigation

In April 2019 Brussels and Geneva call for stop to 5G technology and questions the safety standards of wireless technology.

"I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not," Céline Fremault

Last month Environment minister Céline Fremault (CDH) told Bruzz that the people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health can be sold at a profit. She told Bruzz that “A pilot project is not feasible with the current radiation standards”. see The Brussels Times

Meanwhile last week, Antonio Hodgers, the head of Geneva’s executive, announced a ban on the erection of further 5G mobile antennas in the canton, according to an interview on RTS.

le News reported “motivated by uncertainty on the potential health effects of the new technology, the temporary freeze is the most the cantonal government can do to stop the rollout of the technology. The governments of both Geneva and Vaud have now put the brakes on 5G rollout in their territories by putting a freeze on permits to erect further 5G antennas.”

Other Swiss cantons are following the developments in Vaud. A similar parliamentary motion has been put forward in Geneva and the parliament of Valais will discuss the issue when it next sits.
