ER Editor: Although France seems somewhat behind in its rollout of 5G, thank goodness, Marseille has been chosen as the pilot city. During the lockdown – convenient timing – up to 52 antennae were activated, despite a petition of 17,000 names submitted against it.
Electromagnetic installations can be found for France on this website, cartoradio.fr, which lists the locations of the Marseille deployments.
5G: 500 environmental activists take legal action against Orange, Bouygues, SFR and Free
Environmental activists request forensic expertise on 5G. They have summoned the four mobile operators, who will have to justify to an expert the measures they have taken to prevent any risk to health or the environment.
Environmentalists are continuing their legal guerrilla warfare against 5G, the mobile phone standard that is to succeed 4G and whose frequencies are due to be allocated this year.
The latest action to date is a summary procedure before the Paris Court of Justice. Five hundred activists are asking the court to order an expert opinion on 5G. They filed their summons on 26 May, and are requesting a first hearing on 30 June. Defended by the lawyer Jean-Marc Descoubes, the group is led by the founder of the Young Ambassadors for the Climate, Côme Girschig, and includes a number of VIPs such as the film director Liza Azuelos, the writer Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre and the singer Alma Higelin.
According to their assignment, the expert will have to investigate “the implementation by mobile operators of effective measures on the prevention of risk to human health and the environment, and the establishment of the safety of this technology“. In particular, he will have to visit the sites of the 5G experiments conducted by the four operators. The expert will also have to “give an opinion on the risk of encroachment on individual freedoms, and the technical means to be put in place to prevent, remedy and prevent the occurrence of these risks”.
The main argument of environmental activists is that the precautionary principle should be applied to 5G: “the precautionary principle should be applied when risks to health or the environment are not certain, but merely probable, or at least not excluded”. Failing this, legal action may be taken against the four operators:
“By their experiments and applications, the operators are exposing the population to a future risk, which is currently not certain, but cannot be excluded. If this risk materialises, then the operators’ civil liability may be engaged. Their fault will have consisted in having disregarded the precautionary principle.”
Activists explain that the health and environmental effects of 5G are not known, as this new technology will use more antennas than existing mobile networks, but also higher frequency bands (3.5 and 26 gigahertz). They are mainly based on the pre-report issued at the end of 2019 by the ANSES (National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety). This pre-report deplores the fact that “research data is still scarce” on these new frequencies. And from an environmental point of view, 5G will be more energy consuming according to them. On the other hand, the assignment does not mention the reassuring report on the dangers of 5G issued in April by the National Frequencies Agency .
Two other associations, Agir pour l’environnement and Priartem, have lodged appeals on the merits and in summary proceedings before the Conseil d’Etat against the decrees launching the allocation of 5G frequencies. They consider that this allocation (and in particular the absence of a prior environmental study) violates several environmental protection provisions, starting with the precautionary principle. On 5 March, the High Court promised to render its verdict on the merits ”before the summer of 2020”, and therefore considered that there was no need to take summary measures.
5G: 500 militants écologistes assignent Orange, Bouygues, SFR et Free en justice
INFO CAPITAL. Des militants écologistes demandent une expertise judiciaire sur la 5G. Ils ont assigné les quatres opérateurs mobiles, qui devront justifier auprès d’un expert les mesures qu’ils ont prises pour prévenir tout risque pour la santé ou l’environnement.
Les écologistes poursuivent leur guérilla judiciaire contre la 5G, la norme de téléphonie mobile qui doit succéder à la 4G et dont les fréquences doivent être attribuées cette année. Dernière action en date : une procédure en référé devant le tribunal judiciaire de Paris. Cinq cents militants y demandent d’ordonner une expertise sur la 5G. Ils ont déposé leur assignation le 26 mai, et demandent une première audience le 30 juin. Défendus par Me Jean-Marc Descoubes, ce collectif est mené par le fondateur de Jeunes ambassadeurs pour le climat Côme Girschig, et comprend quelques VIP, comme la réalisatrice Liza Azuelos, l’écrivaine Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre, ou la chanteuse Alma Higelin.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
