GRP Opposes 5G

The Green-Rainbow Party (GRP) State Committee approved this proposal on January 4, 2020.

PROPOSAL: The Green-Rainbow Party (GRP) demands a moratorium on 5G implementation in Massachusetts until a full, extensive and independent assessment of the technology is completed and public hearings are conducted. 5G should not be implemented until the safety of people and the environment is assured.

TITLE: Oppose 5G

SPONSORS: GRP Co-chair Maha Visnu and CDLC member Maureen Doyle and GRP Statecom member Joshua Gerloff.

COSPONSORS: GRP Statecom members David Rolde and Jed Stamas.

FLOOR MANAGER: Joshua Gerloff.

SUMMARY: We oppose this 5G based on the 10 Key Values of the Green Party.

As verbiage in the Ecological Wisdom Key Value says: โ€œWe support a sustainable society that utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end, we mustโ€ฆ live in ways that respect the integrity of natural systems.โ€ Scientific assurances must be made that 5G is not a hazard to human health, biosphere integrity, etc. There are too many unknown effects from the 5G system for us to embrace it at this time.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.

IMPLEMENTATION: Opposition can include a statement on the website, letters to various media, contacting state and federal legislators and local officials, and direct action if necessary. This opposition needs to include that the GRP demand a moratorium on 5G implementation in the state of Massachusetts until a full, extensive and independent assessment of the technology is completed and public hearings are conducted.
