5G KEY POINTS

Politicians often only have a few minutes to state their case. Here we have provided a document for printing with some key points and common arguments for use in meetings.

2010 MOBILE PHONE BILL (WITHDRAWN)

In 2010 Senator Mark Daly proposed a bill to "provide that a warning lable shall be affixed to the exterior casing of mobile phones and on related packaging, which shall state clearly that mobile phones emit electromagnetic radiation." The label proposed was:

“WARNING: THIS DEVICE EMITS ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. USERS, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN, SHOULD KEEP THIS DEVICE AWAY FROM THE HEAD AND BODY.”

The bill was subsequently withdrawn.

MOTION WORDING

There have been several successful county council motions calling for a moratorium on 5G rollout until safety studies have been carried out. Here we provide the wordings to help other councils and politicians form their own.

MOTIONS PASSED

Clare

Co Clare - June 2019 - Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy:

"In light of a recent appeal to the EU from 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries warning about the danger of 5G, which will lead to a massive increase in involuntary exposure to electromagnetic radiation, that Clare County Council in exercising its responsibility to protect the environment and the public from harm:

opposes the roll-out of 5G in the County; and

calls on CommReg to deny licensing for its roll-out; and

calls on the Minister for Communication, Climate Change and the Environment, to establish a working group to establish the facts about the radiation impact of 5G on the environment & human health due to the current questionable scientific knowledge."

Roscommon

Co. Roscommon - July 2019 - Cllr Orla Leyden:

Leitrim

Co. Leitrim - September 2019 - Cllr Justin Warnock:

"That Leitrim County Council, in exercising its responsibility to protect the environment and the public from harm, and in invoking the precautionary principle in relation to 5G, opposes the testing of 5G, the roll out of 5G, and any action that would facilitate the deployment of 5G in the County, calls on ComReg to deny licencing for its roll out, and calls on the Minister for Communications, Climate Change and the Environment to establish the facts about the radiation impact of 5G on the environment and human health with reference to global scientific knowledge."

Wicklow

Co. Wicklow – October 2019 – Cllr Tom Fortune and Mary Kavanagh

“Wicklow county Council has a social responsibility to serve, inform and protect the public and environment from exposure to harm, and therefore it opposes the roll-out of unregulated 5G in the county of Wicklow based on the precautionary principle pending the enactement by Dail Eireann of protective legislation. In the meantime, it is proposed that a 5G Advisory Council Committee or working group be established (including independent representatives) who would be mandated to report back to the Council on the potentially harmful effects of wireless EMF on the environment and in particular on our carbon footprint”

Laois

Co. Laois – November 2019 – Cllr Aisling Moran

We as a Council and Public Representatives have a moral and ethical responsibility to protect the health and wellbeing of our citizens.

There is a reason why insurance companies will not insure 5G - this needs to be investigated further by an independent company with no prospect of financial gain.”

Kerry

Co. Kerry – December 2019 - Cllr Brendan Cronin
