Citizen activist groups against 5G antenna installations ignite legal actions in California, citing hazardous technology that could hurt humans and the planet. 5G-Free California President Julie Levine said, “I am personally investing my savings in lawsuits aimed at halting the rollout of 5G, including the densification of 4G antennas. 5G-Free California is a party to these actions and front and center of this fight-back effort.”

According to Messenger Mountain News, 5G Free California believes the “Big Three” telecoms and SpaceX are seeking approval from the FCC to blanket the planet with millions of antennas toward their own financial gain. “This is an $11 trillion-a-year industry off the sale of our data,” said Levine. “A lot of people are invested in this.” 

Accelerated efforts by President Trump and the FCC to roll out 5G broadband across the United States appear to be the spark that has lit the fires of litigation and the rising efforts by activist groups to shut down 5G deployment.

Trump signed the “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020” into law on March 23, Inside Towers reported. “The Act requires the President to develop and implement a strategy for the adoption of secure wireless communications technology in the United States and abroad,” according to the President’s statement released by the White House. “The strategy will protect the American people from security threats to telecommunications networks and 5G technology.”

Some groups that oppose 5G deployment are riled up by news of the new law and its potential threat to human health, especially since it was signed during the nation’s coronavirus crisis, reported Messenger Mountain News.
