On October 17, 2017, the National Coalition for Responsible Technology gathered in front of the US Supreme Court for a rally entitled “The Public Has a Right to Know About the Health Risks of Wireless, 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT).”


In honor of the EPA’s Children’s Health Month, the rally was created to draw attention to the growing use of wireless devices by children and the rapid proliferation of small cell 5G wireless antennas being built in neighborhoods across the United States.


The Coalition called on the federal government to take action to safeguard the public with protective electromagnetic policy to halt 5G deployment until long term safety is assured; place a moratorium on cell towers and cell antennas near homes, hospitals, schools, and children’s recreation areas; replace outdated Federal Communications Commission radiofrequency human exposure limits with proper safety standards; create safe radiation-free technology in schools and public institutions; replace current cell phone and wireless device SAR testing methods with a protective exposure metric; and more.


Speakers came from across the United States from California to New Hampshire to speak specifically about the health risks of 5G technology, small cell antennas, wireless technology in schools, and cell towers on school property, expressing the dangers to public health on the local, state, national and international level.
