Lawsuit Filed Against UK Government to Stop 5G Deployment

May 30, 2021

A group of committed and concerned citizens including doctors, scientists, and engineers throughout the United Kingdom have come together to bring a lawsuit against their government for its failure to protect the health of the country’s citizens, particularly children, from 5G and wireless. The Claimants filed their lawsuit, an application for Judicial Review Proceedings, in the UK’s High Court.

The organization they have formed, Legal Action Against 5G, claims that the government has refused to acknowledge, or even study, the potential harms of 5G infrastructure and allowed and promoted its deployment unlawfully. On their website they wrote: “Our case against the UK government is that due process is not being followed, that the risks are being entirely disregarded. This is a national public health issue.”  Among other things, the group is calling for a moratorium on the rollout of 5G.

The defendants in the case are the UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care; the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; and the Secretary of State for Digital Culture Media and Sport. The named claimants (plaintiffs) in the case include Victoria Angell and Karen Churchill, who live or frequent areas where 5G has already been implemented and “whose health is put at risk by 5G.”
