On March 1st 2022 Europeans For Safe Connections launched their Stop (((5G))) – Stay Connected but Protected initiative in all 27 European Union member states. This action was taken as a European Citizens' initiative, a mechanism which gives EU citizens the legal right to propose new laws to the EU. The initiative comprises 23 new EU legislative proposals on three main areas, click on each for specific proposals:

The initiative including the 23 legislative proposals has now been successfully registered with EU Commission. The next step in the process is to gather 1 million signatures from citizens of member states in order for the proposals to be presented to the EU Commission and Parliament for a public hearing, after which a formal response from the EU Commission will be published. This is the first time a European Citizens' initiative has been taken to address the negative impacts of telecommunications technology on human health and the environment.

So we are now calling on all citizens of Ireland and other European member states who share our concerns regarding this technology to add their voice to this call and sign the citizens' initiative below. Please also share this link with your friends, family or any other groups that you feel might also wish to be part of this Europe wide push back against technologies which are harming us, our families, our communities and our environment. Let's try to make Ireland the first country to get 100% of its signature quota (progress viewable at the link).

Who are Europeans For Safe Connections?

Ireland For Safe Technology is a volunteer-run national organisation advocating for the health and well-being of our communities, children and environment with regard to the danger wireless technology poses in Ireland, but similar national groups exist in just about every other European country. While each group's primary concern is of course for their own country and communities we all share common goals and problems. Europeans For Safe Connections was set up to help these national groups work together on these shared issues at a European level. Each group in each country maintains their complete autonomy, participation with this European group is completely voluntary and should they decide to stop their co-operation at any time for any reason they are completely free to do so. Trying to get all these groups to agree to all the details of certain actions can of course be a challenge but as it currently stands Ireland For Safe Technology is pleased to work with these other European groups, particularly on this initiative, under the banner of Europeans For Safe Connections.

What is a European Citizens' initiative (ECI)?”

A European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) is an official tool that is provided by the EU for citizens who want to propose new laws to the EU. After one million signatures have been collected, the proposals will be presented to the EU Commission and the Parliament where a public hearing will take place. After a hopefully constructive debate the Commission will publish a formal response.
