Australians are fighting back against 5G technology, with local community action groups scheduling a number of protests and forums to oppose the rollout in the next fortnight.
The following page gives a brief overview of the timeline of 5G technologies in Australia and a list of planned rallies.
5G technology is beginning to be introduced in Australia, despite backlash across the world against an evolving technology that remains largely untested and unregulated for safety concerns.
Telstra have launched a 5G hotspot enabled mobile phone device, beginning the next generation rollout expected to be fully culminated by all telecommunications companies in 2020.
The Department of Communications have detailed plans to support a timely rollout of 5G in Australia, spelling out the road map in their paper, 5G — Enabling the Future Economy.
5G technology will power Australia’s new national ‘smart city’ infrastructure, underpinned by an approaching surveillance model similar to China’s ‘Social Credit System’, and to also sustain the coming cashless society, digital identification grid and biometric monitoring systems.
The following events have been created by various local 5G community action groups across Australia in response to the rapid introduction of the new technologies:
PERTH | 22/06:
MELBOURNE | 22/06:
BRISBANE | 22/06:
HERVEY BAY | 22/06:
NEWCASTLE FORUM | 29/06:
SYDNEY | 30/06:
SUNSHINE COAST | 02/07:
BRISBANE FORUM | 07/07:
We are awaiting updated listings on events in SA, TAS, NT, ACT and NZ. This page will be updated as soon as other events are confirmed.
