Greenrock, the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce, Ocean Rock Wellness, Bermuda Advocates for Safe Technology, and Dr. David Wingate are all joining together to “bring awareness to concerns regarding the potential deployment of 5G technology in Bermuda.”

A spokesperson said, “In response to increased community concern, Greenrock, the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce, Ocean Rock Wellness, Bermuda Advocates for Safe Technology, and Dr. David Wingate are all joining together to bring awareness to concerns regarding the potential deployment of 5G technology in Bermuda.

“The groups are also advocating for an extension to the public consultation being administered by the Regulatory Authority [RA], which is currently scheduled to close on November 23rd.

“We strongly urge the RA to extend the public consultation on 5G, which is being held during a time when our focus has been on a global pandemic, for at least 30 days.

“It is important that adequate time be allocated for the general public to understand the potential risks and provide their input,” they added.

“This is about the health and safety of the people of Bermuda, especially our most vulnerable, and as a result, we are deeply concerned that this push for 5G is placing profit over people.

“5G is very different from previous generations of wireless technology. It promises an increase in data transmission rates by using high-frequency, short millimeter waves, which require a large number of antennas to be erected in close proximity to homes, schools, and places of work.

“The technology requires massive increases in energy consumption and there are genuine concerns that 5G also poses risks to birds, bees and tree canopy. For full coverage, antenna installations will need to take place island-wide, therefore involuntarily exposing all of us to a substantial increase in wireless radiation.

“At the moment, we can all choose the extent to which we use wireless technology in our homes, however should 5G technology be approved in Bermuda, the rollout of 5G infrastructure, and our subsequent exposure to considerable increases in wireless radiation, will happen without our consent.

“5G is globally controversial, with a growing list of countries and cities halting its implementation. In Bermuda, we need to determine our position and the window of opportunity for influencing the outcome has arrived.

“We must act now if we wish for our voices to be heard. A petition to stop the deployment of 5G in Bermuda is currently circulating, with over 3,500 signatures to date, and the link to sign and share the petition is here.
