On November 8, 2019 the magazine Marianne published on its website our open letter to Ministers Agnès Buzyn, Elisabeth Borne and Bruno Le Maire signed with six other associations working for the protection of public health. Then, without any return from the ministers, the signatory associations including Alerte Phonegate wrote collectively on 26 November 2019 to ask to be received urgently and in any case before the planned meeting with the mobile phone manufacturers (date still not made public).

To date, only the Ministry of Economy and Finance has replied. We will be received on January 7, 2020, by a technical advisor attached to the Cabinet of Mrs. Agnès PANNIER-RUNACHER, Secretary of State to the Minister of the Economy and Finance, in the presence of a representative of the Directorate General for Enterprises (DGE) and the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRF).

For Dr Marc Arazi, President of Alerte Phonegate :

“This is a first step forward. However, we still do not understand the current inertia of the Ministries of Health and Ecological Transition, which have still not responded to our request for consultation. Indeed, we are first and foremost faced with health and environmental issues that depend directly on their ministries. Following this meeting, we will not fail to make a collective point during a Facebook live video.”

The signatory associations:

Alerte Phonegate ; Robin des toits – Centre de Recherche et d’Information Indépendant sur les Rayonnements Electro Magnétiques – Santé Environnement Rhône Alpes – Association Zones Blanches – WECF (Women engage for a common future) France – Conseil National des Associations Familiales Laïques
