5G Day of Action


5G Day of Action Rally, Wisconsin for Safe Technology, Greendale, Wisconsin


The Americans for Responsible Technology (ART) coordinated a nationwide day of action on May 15, 2019 to protest the deployment of 5G in the United States.

The purpose of the demonstrations was to raise public awareness about the health risks from 5G radiation and to place the burden of responsibility on those who stand to profit from 5G deployment.

ART and more than 30 local wireless safety groups called on wireless companies (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile) and their sub-contractors (e.g, Crown Castle, American Tower, ExteNet Systems) to suspend the deployment of small cell antennas until chronic, low level exposure to 5G radio frequency radiation can be proven safe for everyone.

The local sponsors and locations of thirty demonstrations that occurred in fourteen states are listed below. A few other demonstrations do not appear in this list (e.g., Berkeley, CA; Oakland, CA).
