Australia: Nationwide Class Action Suit over RF-EMR Hazards of 4G/5G Densification Scheme

by Darius Leszczynski and the Environment and Communities Safe from Radiation Assn. Inc. (ECSFR), July 30, 2018 | Original article here.

In the 1980’s, when the 1G mobile technology was commercialized, things were easy for the Telecom industry. Users of the expensive and cumbersome technology were few and, therefore, the number of those aware of the health hazards from pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) exposures was small. The knowledge about the biological and health effects of microwaves was available, but not many were aware of it.

Today, 40+ years later, with 4G/5G densification planning to be deployed on a massive scale, things are different. There is now a large number of users of the already existing 3G and 4G technology who are aware of the safety, privacy and property value hazards that 4G/5G densification brings to neighborhoods. The planned addition of 5G and IoT applications will make these numbers soar. Everyone will be forced to co-exist with 5G and the IoT, whether or not they are willing to be exposed 24/7 to the RF microwave radiation from these Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antenna – Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (CPMRA-WTFs).

The knowledge of the harms of RF-EMR energy emitted by the Wireless communication devices and infrastructure has increased over the 40 years. The WHO agency, IARC, classified in 2011 RF-EMR energy emitted by the 3G and 4G devices as a possible human carcinogen (Group 2B IARC classification). Since then, additional studies in humans (epidemiology) and in animals (toxicology) have indicated that this radiation energy should be classified as a human carcinogen (Group 1 classification).

In addition to the RF-EMR energy already emitted by 3G and 4G devices and infrastructure, the coming deployment of the 5G technology will add a new modality of exposure – the millimeter-waves. Our knowledge about the biological and health effects of the millimeter-waves is limited, but what we do know is bad. How the health of billions of exposed to 24/7 5G millimeter-wave RF microwave radiation will suffer is yet to be determined.

The Wireless industry claims that RF microwave radiation exposures from 4G/5G densification will be safe for the whole humanity is completely baseless. No wonder that many, many people would like to slow down the massive deployment of 4G/5G antennas throughout populated areas and give researchers time to conduct independent studies.

Australia seems to be leading the way in both . . .

  1. The eagerness to deploy the 4G/5G densification on one hand
  2. The determination to slow down this process and halt 4G/5G densification in residential areas.

A National Class Action lawsuit is being developed in Australia to slow down 4G/5G densification

Here is the message that I just received from Australia:

“…You are invited to attend a landmark event. This is BIG news.

A Class Action Lawsuit is in the process of being filed on behalf of the citizens of Australia. It addresses those entities within Government and industry seen to be failing in their duty to protect the public from harmful Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by consumer products and related infrastructure.

The intent is not to curtail useful technology, but rather prompt a comprehensive overhaul of outdated RF-EMR safety standards so as to incorporate the full gamut of scientific evidence, as well as the true meaning of the internationally mandated “precautionary principle”. A significant part of this process involves community education and empowerment.

It is our good fortune that Barrister Ray Broomhall, of the prestigious Justice Michael Kirby Chambers in Tasmania, has agreed to take up this cause. He will be conducting a series of face-to-face briefings with the newly formed Environment and Communities Safe from Radiation Assn. Inc. (ECSFR), and members of the public who wish to attend. Assisting will be a medical doctor, radiation scientists, and team of compensation and human rights lawyers.

Specific legal procedures will be presented to enable knowledgeable organizations and individuals to prevail over the commercial self-interest of Wireless corporations and their Government regulators. This type of action is particularly timely due to the planned densified 4G/5G network that will attempt to enforce installation of many thousands of microwave transmitters throughout populated areas.

Here are the details of the first scheduled meeting:

Date: August 4, 2018
Time: 3:30- 9:00pm
Place: St. John’s Primary School Hall,11 Murwillumbah Rd, Mullumbimby NSW


  • 3:30 – Doors open
  • 4:00 – 4:15 Welcome to Country, the event and our association
  • 4:15 – 5:00 Mr. Victor Leach – ORSAA
  • 5:00 – 6:30 Dr. Russell Cooper
  • 6:30 – 7:00 Soup/tea/coffee break and local music
  • 7:00 – 9:00 Barrister Raymond Broomhall

This is the standard of undertaking many of us have long awaited. If you have been considering the hazards of personal exposure to RF-EMR , and not known how to effectively respond, here is an opportunity to join forces with the first legally supported initiative of its kind. There is no requested fee for doing so since, by definition, a Nationwide Class Action includes all non-objecting citizens of Australia.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please also spread word throughout your social network so as many persons as possible may take part. Everyone is welcome. For those who cannot attend, the event will be live streamed at:

Let’s work together to reclaim our health and environment from the unjustifiable proliferation of health-threatening electro-pollution.
