Let me read you something from the website of the totally normal community group No 5G in the Blue Mountains. In fact, let me read you a lot more this Saturday night, 1 February. But I need your help.

"If the telecommunications industry's plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that...
