Thousands of Anti-5G Swiss Protest At Their Capital
By B.N. Frank
Swiss opposition to 5G has been ongoing. In 2017, Swiss doctor Bertrand Buchs launched a petition asking for a moratorium on 5G installation and since then hundreds of doctors and scientists worldwide have signed it. This is not surprising since research has determined that exposure is harmful (see 1, 2, 3).
Earlier this year, Vaud Switzerland adopted a 5G moratorium. Regardless, 5G was installed in Geneva where some residents immediately started suffering from exposure.
On Saturday, September 21, thousands of Swiss attended the second major 5G protest in the country. This was covered by many news sources.
Online petitions have helped persuade several Swiss cantons — in Geneva, Vaud, Fribourg and Neuchatel — to postpone the construction of antennae as a precaution.
The Swiss Federation of Doctors (FMH) has also argued for a cautious approach to the new technology.
Opponents of the new technology are trying to gather the 100,000 signatures they need to force a referendum on imposing a moratorium on the technology until its risks can be properly assessed.
Opponents of the introduction of fifth generation cellular network technology (5G) in Switzerland gathered in Bern on Saturday to protest against “forced radiation”.
Several speakers at the parliament square warned of considerable risks to health, the environment, democracy and safety associated with mobile communications in general and the introduction of 5G in particular. They called for a national moratorium on 5G and the creation of radiation-free zones.
The demonstration – scheduled between 4:30 and 6:30 in the afternoon was coordinated by the organisation Frequencia that was formed after the first significant anti-5G demonstration this May in Bern.
“We are for low-radiation living spaces and for freedom of choice with regard to the means of communication,” the organisation stated in a communiqué.
Frequencia claims that only 20% of all mobile connections are made outdoors and therefore want a low-radiation solution based on the fiber-optic network for indoor use. They also want mobile masts to only serve mobile connections outdoors and radiate much weaker signals.
