Paper petition details

Pause Bristol's 5G Rollout

We ask that our political leaders invoke the precautionary principle and issue a moratorium (authorised period of delay) on Bristol's 5G expansion until they can verify through independent studies that 5G and the total radiation levels caused by RF-EMF (5G together with 2G, 3G, 4G, and WiFi) will not be harmful to the environment or Bristol's citizens, especially infants, children and pregnant women.
