Totnes is leading the way in declaring a moratorium on the rollout of the controversial 5G technology in Totnes.
Activists across the globe fear radiation from 5G wireless services could be dangerous to public health, including 245 scientists and doctors from more than 40 countries, who have called for the EU to halt its rollout.
Towns including Glastonbury and Frome in Somerset have opposed the introduction of the fifth generation technology until further information has been obtained about the health effects on its residents, but Totnes is believed to be the first to declare an outright ban on 5G.
5G is set to be a game-changer: its lightning-fast internet speeds ability to power driverless cars and remote robot-assisted surgeries, plus an ever-growing ‘internet of things’, are all set to lead humanity into a future resembling the most fantastical sci-fi movie.
Critics, though, believe 5G will increase exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic fields, which they say are harmful to humans and the environment.
More than 800 Totnes residents signed a petition calling on councillors to stop 5G coming to town until safety tests have been carried out.
In response, the council has declared a moratorium on the introduction of the new technology in the town. In reality, the moratorium will do nothing to stop the technology being imposed on Totnes, because if tech giants ‘self-certify’, planners will be barred legally from rejecting the technology on health grounds.
South Hams District Council, as the local planning authority, has warned that, under planning law, the district council’s development management committee will be forced to ignore any local council moratorium.
Town mayor Jacqi Hodgson ackowledged this fact, saying: “I have to say I don’t think we’ll get anywhere with it, but the more councils that do this the more pressure it brings to bear.
“The Government has now said it will make it easier for 5G masts to be installed, which is very worrying. We think there are significant health issues involved. We’re looking at a massive rollout of 5G. which has much higher radiation levels than 3G and 4G. It will power smart meters, driverless cars and highly sophisticated technology. Our concern is that there will be a much higher blanket of radiation all around us. There hasn’t really been any assessment carried out to prove it’s safe to health and the environment. As a council, we have a duty of care to our residents and we want to make sure they’re safe. As a town council, we have very limited powers, but we can at least stand up for our community and say what we believe.”
Leading Totnes anti-5G campaigner John Kitson welcomed the move, saying: “Totnes has overtaken Glastonbury and Frome in going ahead to call a moratorium. “It’s probably one of the strongest stances against 5G in the country.”
Totnes resident Rosi Gladwell, who believes she is sensitive to electromagnetic fields, said:
“We’re very excited this has come about. It’s brave of councillors to be so authentic and caring for Totnes. There has been a soaring increase in neurological diseases in the past five years and many scientists say cases of autism and dementia are due to electromagnetic radio frequencies. Anything the town council can do to protect us from this is wonderful.”
Glastonbury mayor Denise Michell said her council has banned the rollout of 5G using the precautionary principle.
This means the council will investigate health and environmental concerns before making a final decision on whether it wants to ban 5G or not. She welcomes Totnes Town Council’s move.
“I fear a dystopian future”, she said, “but if we all stick together, somebody might listen.”

Why is technology more important than the health of our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, not to mention ourselves?
It is Agenda 21 and New World Order! It is total control – Evan stop you from shopping at Tescos! Gretta Fahey

I am wirelessly non-consensually linked to a human control and enslavement system which is being called the internet of things where I am being judged as part of a social credit score system in the Republic of Ireland. I visited Tesco in Ballinrobe, County Mayo today and I purchased one item and I checked it out at the customer operated checkout myself. I was in the store less than five minutes. I did not interact with anyone while I was there. I have now been informed by wireless direct communication that I am no longer allowed to shop in any Tesco store whatsoever. Why is this?
Because I have been wirelessly linked to the internet of things control and enslavement system for many years from what I believe are wireless implants, information has been sent to my brain and spinal column in order to enable external control to be taken of my muscles and in order to render me immobile in the future if I disobey the voice commands which I receive on a regular basis. Therefore if I should enter any branch of Tesco Ireland in the future I could possibly be rendered immobile while I am there or otherwise I could be sent direct pain signals or electric shocks to my system. I have often been sent pain and electric shocks by this human control and enslavement system in the past.
It is my belief that wireless control and enslavement system is meant for future generations of the human race other than the people of Madagascar. It is my belief but I can not prove it as yet that chemtrail spraying from jets does not take place in Madagascar and I also believe that Madagascar is a stronghold of the Zionist Jews. I hope to do more research into the ownership of Madagascar in the future if I am enabled to do so.
I was non-consensually selected as a subject of experimentation and control by the internet of things human control system earlier than most people because I am in receipt of disability allowance for irritable bowel syndrome and I have been informed by the direct wireless communication voice command system that they wish to create new policies in order to gain control over individuals who are claiming disability allowance for irritable bowel syndrome because otherwise they can not reliably know if someone is telling the truth about whether they suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and to what degree they are handicapped by it and if they should be claiming disability allowance for it and if it is diet related.

Wһy people ѕtіll make use of to read news papers when in this technological globe all is avаilablе on wｅb?
Well done Totnes. I live in North West London in Hampstead and have similar concerns. I have set up a petition against 5G which is addressed to the government, the mobile service companies and our local council Camden Council. Please do invite everyone to sign this.
Well done Jessica!
We have a forum now so feel free to join.
If you’d like to be on the mailing list for 5G events including those in London let me know.
Next 5G awareness event 18th sep info is at http://www.ianrcrane.com
I’m interested in buying the Make Britain 5G Free stickers but don’t know who to contact to order 60 of them. Could you point me in the right direction.
Sure. I have sent you an e-mail. Please reply to that or contact me via the contact page and I will get them off to you 🙂
there is a parliament petition to delay the rollout of 5g pending further investigations, there is nowhere near enough signatures yet
