October 28, 2021 | Oasi Sana | Maurizio Martucci, speaking to the European Economic and Social Committee on behalf of the European Alliance Stop 5G and Italian Alliance Stop 5G
[EXCERPT] “In a video message, Martucci pointed out that one of the most serious problems is compartmentalization, that is to say the fact that the debate focuses only on some of the dangers of 5G, thus losing sight of the overall picture of the epochal changes already in course in the Smart Cities and Gigabit Society projects, and called for Europe to immediately adopt an international moratorium on the introduction of 5G in order to prevent European citizens from becoming guinea pigs of this technology”
“Good morning, I’m Maurizio Martucci from Italy. I’m an investigative journalist and author and today I’m speaking on behalf of the European Alliance Stop 5G and Italian Alliance Stop 5G.
Predicting the social and ecological impact of 5G ecosystem is such a wide and radical task that I‘ve had to make it the subject matter of an investigative book.
I’ve tackled this issue by analysing the dark side of 5G, not only in terms of health and the environment, but also in terms of privacy and social control.
I’ve exposed the real purpose of the race to the Internet of Things. Its real aim is to create the Internet of Bodies using 6G because this is what makes transhumanism possible, towards posthumanism. Transhumanism is the merging of the physical and biological with the digital world and this cultural and philosophical approach is supported by supranational bodies like the World Economic Forum.
One of our biggest problems is compartmentalization, that is, focusing the debate on only certain aspects of the dangers of 5G and the proposed digital future, and thereby missing the big picture of epoch-making and tectonic changes that are already being implemented in the Smart City and Gigabit Society projects.
Coming to the theme of today’s hearing, we would like to bring the following observations and proposals to the attention of the Committee:
1. It’s a fact that no preliminary studies on the environmental effects of 5G have been carried out to date by the telecommunications companies, much less by public institutions, and that the European Commissioner for Economy and Digital Society has even affirmed that they are not necessary. However, the Commissioner for the Internal Market has said that the rollout of 5G is exclusively based on political engagements and that therefore there is no legal obligation to deploy 5G. That being so, Europe must immediately adopt an international moratorium on the 5G rollout in order to prevent European citizens from becoming guinea pig victims of this technology. A moratorium on 5G is vital in view of the following facts:
- The latest findings of the European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA);
- The imminent reclassification of radiofrequency carcinogenicity by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC);
- The vast amount of incontrovertible scientific evidence of biological effects in the bio-medical literature;
- And the injuries inflicted on individuals by electromagnetic waves, including so-called electro-hypersensitivity;
2. STOA has also confirmed the unreliability of the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), so much so that the Health and Food Safety Commissioner has committed himself to revising ICNIRP’s guidelines. That will necessitate the complete revision of the whole process the European Commission has supported up to now;
3. In fact, there are a lot of alternatives to wireless technology, safer and green technologies. There are also alternatives to ICNIRP. I’m going to enclose the relevant documents.
4. Finally, the lack of independent information, free from conflicts of interest and bias in favour of the telecommunication companies, disempowers people and doctors. That’s why we should be devoting public funds to finance research covering the following areas:
- Epidemiological studies on radiofrequency effects;
- Air pollution level monitoring;
- International informative and educational campaigns to inform citizens about risk minimization;
- The “As Low As Is Reasonably Achievable” (ALARA) principle;
- The extreme health risks of compulsive use of the smart phone and Wi-Fi
- The state of the art of all the criticalities emerged in the digital future plannng amd implementation so far, without taking zero risk for granted as it does not exist
Thank you for your attention.”
