We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

INTERNATIONAL APPEAL: Stop 5G on Earth and in Space (updated)

Click here to access article from International Appeal. (Thanks go to an activist who alerted me to this warning.)

Updated at 1:17 PM CT on January 10: I suspect this article reflects a Western psy-op against China after listening to Michel Chossudovsky's remarks to Bonnie Faulkner at 29.08 (about half-way across the audio spectrum) who said that China was a leader in telecommunications and they were a leader in 5G technology.

Updated at 5 PM CT on January 10: I've read more using DuckDuckGo search engine which suggests that this technology has been pioneered by Israel.

They announce this:
Telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale.
As if we didn't have enough to worry about already:
Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.

If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet. These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems.
Such statements have already been endorsed by highly educated specialists: Girish Kumar, PhD; Annie J Sasco, MD; Martin L Pall, PhD, etc. and supported by a number of references.
