Hunger strike in Italy to stop 5G deployment and ‘relaxed’ cell tower radiation limits

By B.N. Frank

Cities worldwide AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums due to economic, environmental, health, and public safety risks.  In fact, the majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment.

Since 2017, doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2).  Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after installation (see 1, 2, 3, 4).  Doctors, scientists, and telecom whistleblowers have also endorsed a boycott on 5G phones.

Opposition to 5G and more relaxed cell tower radiation limits in Italy has led to a hunger strike.

Stop 5G Hunger Strike

Stop 5G Hunger Strike 

As of April 17, 2021, there are now 100 people in a hunger strike in Italy against 5G ! 

A hunger strike to stop 5G and to stop Italy from loosening their cell tower radiation limits was launched Tuesday 13 April 2021. It will continue until the final Italian parliamentary vote on wireless radiation threshold limits. Italy, along with countries such as China, India,  Russia and Switzerland have far more restrictive wireless/cell tower radiation limits compared to the United States, Australia and Japan.  However industry is agressively working to get these countries to weaken their more restrictive cell tower radiation limits in order to deploy 5G.  The vote could change the Italin wireless radiation thresholds from 6 V / m up to 61 V / m. 

The initiative is promoted by the Italian Stop 5G Alliance and they also have a petition signed by over 62,000 people. 

Scientific research on 5G and 4G densification shows adverse effects from wireless proliferation. Hundreds of scientists are calling to halt 5G.

Members of Parliament are speaking out during session. “Dear colleagues, with the approval of the opinions, today you have once again betrayed the promise made to the Italian people to truly protect their health, favoring the Government in its intent to raise the limits on electromagnetic emissions by jumping from the current 6 V / m at 61 V / m to RADIATE US ALL, ALWAYS, EVERYWHERE, IN A MASSIVE WAY. Continue to trivialize the concerns of over 600 ITALIAN MUNICIPALITIES and to offend their mayors who are democratically opposed to the 5G experimentation,” stated Hon. Sara Cunial. 

“To avoid the tenfold increase in the Italian limits on electromagnetic emissions approved by the Parliamentary Commission, Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G promotes a hunger strike. Activists, politicians, mayors, doctors and technicians have already joined. More than 62,000 signatures collected.”

“What limits are we talking about? Up to now the threshold in Italy has remained fixed at 6 V/m and 0.1 W/m2, but the intention is to bring them respectively to 61 V/m and 10 W/m2, however within the safety limits established by ICNIRP ( International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection). Let us remember that our country is the one that has so far imposed the most severe restrictions on this front among all those in the European bloc. Forcing operators to respect them, on the one hand reduces the emissions of each individual network infrastructure, but on the other pushes the telcos to install more on the territory in order to guarantee adequate coverage.”

As Dr. Joel Moskowitz points out, “In the U.S., the maximum permissible radio frequency radiation exposure limit for the general population (uncontrolled exposure) is 10 W/m2 (10 watts per square meter) which is equivalent to the ICNIRP limit but 100 times the current limit in Italy.”

Italy has a very strong movement to stop 5G.  Over 600 cities in Italy have passed resolutions to halt 5G until safety research has been completed. In March 2021 the Stop 5G Marathon was screened on Italy La Casa del Sole TV for 3 days with numerous speakers and experts including Dr. Devra Davis and Theodora Scarato of the Environmental Health Trust.

According to the Italian

Stop 5G, in 57 cominciano lo sciopero della fame: “non alzate l’elettrosmog!”

Increasing the current limits of exposure to electromagnetic fields in a generalized way and for 24 hours constitutes a clear violation of the right to health considering that even the limits currently in force DO NOT exclude the possibility of biological effects for chronic exposures; in the same way, the IARC (WHO) does NOT exclude the possibility of cancer from exposure to radio frequencies ”-  Giuseppe Miserotti (ISDE environmental doctor)

“ I am very ready AND VERY DETERMINED to protest against this that, as a technician who works at the National Institute of Nuclear Physics – and therefore also works with Radiofrequencies – I have no doubts to define: A SILENT AND PROGRAMMED MASS ASSASSINATION !” – Francesco Litrico

“ We are ready to fight all the way against all the abuses, injustices, prevarications and oppressions of the systems of power. United we win! “ Fabio De Gregorio

“ It is necessary to oppose with every form of civil resistance to this further abuse and potential damage towards citizens, which foresees a dangerous increase in electrosmog, tenfolding the current threshold limits set by law. We therefore ask the institutions to review the national plan proposal, maintaining the current threshold limits for electromagnetic fields ”- Camillo Granchelli

“Enough electrosmog, the whole planet earth is in great danger”- Paola Manfrino

“ Stop 5G, let’s be strong not to succumb and let our planet succumb to the force of superpowers “- Roberta Bonardi

“ As an active part of the Stop 5G Emilia group, I join the hunger strike with pleasure and invite you to do so. Taking up the national appeal, we are organizing an operational online meeting in Bologna, to build critical mass and oppose with all our strength the raising of exhibition limits. Already at the current values ​​of attention, biological effects and not only have been found, especially for children and the most fragile people, the electrosensitive, what we could all become . “ Angela Donati

“I protest against 5G and the raising of threshold limits that already hurt the current figurative values ​​if they rise, it will be a continuous torture for both the electrosensitive and for other citizens. The ministers’ children will also be and the whole population will be microwaved and you know what the oven does when it turns on and cooks the food. We too will be cooked to perfection including the madmen who will change the law ”. Luigi Lai

“ Because even a slave can no longer tolerate his meat being used indiscriminately as a commodity or as a means for all sorts of scientific experiments! This is unacceptable for any human being who understands that he is one. Stop to 5G, Stop to human experimentation. Let’s regain our natural fundamental rights ! “ Claudio Bastrentaz


“ As an urban guinea pig, I abstain from the basic activity for living, the daily nourishment, so that those who govern Italy are sensitized to curb the wild invasion of artificial electromagnetic waves .” Ombretta Diafaria

“ With this form of protest I express my NO to raising the limits; I claim the right to health and, above all, that of our children. I am a member of the Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G and of the School Observatory, as well as the author of the book ‘Digital Children’ (The Green Lion) and a teacher of Higher Secondary School ”. Mena Senator

In France, Eugène Riguidel, the well known former winner of the double-handed Transat in 1979, went on a hunger strike, to oppose the installation of a 5G antenna 36 meters high on the outskirts of the village.
