A PUBLIC meeting in Mt Eliza on Wednesday 14 August will discuss the risks associated with the impending national roll-out of 5G telecommunications services.
“There are countries across the world, as well as states and shires, putting a stop to [5G] until it is proven to have no health risks,” organiser Judy O’Donnell said.
“We are a group of concerned Mornington Peninsula residents trying to educate everyone here, too.”
Ms O’Donnell said “no research has proved 5G safe”. “Globally, scientists and doctors have raised serious concerns about health risks to humans and the environment, including animals, birds, insects and trees,” she said.
The “Presentation, Discussion and Action” meeting will be at Norwood House, 1198 Nepean Highway, 7-9pm.
Those invited include the mayor Cr David Gill, Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors, Flinders MP Greg Hunt, the shire’s natural systems team, land-care networks and the shire’s native flora and fauna teams.
Ms O’Donnell said beekeepers’ associations, health food store proprietors, schools and kindergartens would all be impacted if the roll-out “is allowed to go ahead”.
“Informed people worldwide are opposing 5G for environmental and health reasons,” she said.
“5G as planned will increase radiation levels 10- to 100-fold, virtually overnight, everywhere.
“Basically, we will all be walking around in a microwave smog.”
