5G Judicial Review

5 G, Uncategorised Posted on Tue, December 06, 2022 12:35:33

Quote The full-day Judicial Review Court Hearing will take place at The Royal Courts of Justice on Strand, London WC2A 2LL on Tuesday, 13th December. 

The legal team have completed the preparation of the Exhibits, Statements and Reports and are now ready for the case to be heard. 

The work on the Court bundles has been enormous, the commitment of our legal team has been outstanding and the preparation of documentation quite astonishing. Their dedication is unrivalled and for their 32 months of diligent work we are enormously grateful.

We want to thank every one of you for your wonderful donations, your support and for your greatly appreciated comments. Your trust in our work on the challenge we share has encouraged us immeasurably.

Your continued support would be very welcome as there are outstanding legal costs.

We would love you to join us to focus on bringing truth, wisdom and justice to the Court on the day.

And please share our website for information, news and blogs. Many more people are learning of the harm caused by radiation to all life, that affects their children’s health and the environment, and there has been no environmental risk assessment of the effects of 5G. They may gladly wish to support this case.

There will be a meeting at a local venue after the hearing where our legal adviser Lorna Hackett will be present to share information about the proceedings. We will make a further announcement about the venue closer to the time.

With gratitude to you all, may truth prevail.

5G Court of Appeal

5 G Posted on Sat, May 28, 2022 18:59:04


We are delighted to announce that the Court of Appeal has granted permission for our case to proceed on two grounds concerning:

1. The failure to provide adequate or effective information to the public about the risks and how, if it be possible, it might be possible for individuals to avoid or minimise the risks;

2. (a) The failure to provide adequate and sufficient reasons for not establishing a process to investigate and establish the adverse health effects and risks of adverse health effects from 5G technology and/or for discounting the risks presented by the evidence available; and/or (b) failure to meet the requirements of transparency and openness required of a public body.

These grounds advance a breach of the Human Rights Act 1998 by omissions and failings in violation of the positive obligations to protect human life, health and dignity, required to be met by Articles 2, 3 and/or 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The case will now be sent back to the Administrative Court and we await the directions as to the full hearing in due course.

To our wonderful supporters: this is YOUR victory. Without your unerring faith in our case, this would not have been possible.

With eternal gratitude,

Action Against 5G

5G – Judicial Review Refusal

5 G Posted on Sun, August 15, 2021 08:11:11

“Welcome to Legal Action Against 5G’s Case Update Number 9:We must report to you that our first application to judicially review the subject of ever-rising levels of radio frequency radiation and its potential harm to ourselves and the environment has been subject to a refusal by a judge. Without delay, the amazing Michael Mansfield QC, and barristers Philip Rule and Lorna Hackett, have swiftly lodged a Renewal Notice seeking permission for a hearing. The Defendants were presented with evidence which it is their duty to consider – and have failed to do so.

Whilst this initial decision is disappointing it is not altogether surprising in the current climate. This judicial review is a challenge to the Defendants’ acts and omissions concerning the failure to engage with necessary and sufficient investigation of the dangers and health risks and harms arising from the existing, and the increasing public exposure to new forms of radiation. The claim is very clear – there is a weight and volume of scientific material and evidence of harmful effects that must be properly considered by the Defendants. It is deeply concerning that there is no ownership by any of the Defendants of the risks to be considered by increasing exposure to RFR. There is, as yet, an absence of scientific reasoning and analysis undertaken by or provided by the Defendants.

This is not a case of which scientific material is to be preferred, but the obligation that all relevant scientific material must be considered and evaluated by the Defendants, and cannot be a duty abrogated or delegated to a third-party. The simple point is that the Defendants have yet to give due consideration to the evidence of risks, but rather they delegate the national government’s duty to a single external body (ICNIRP).

It remains an incontestable fact that ICNIRP has adopted an approach that (a) lacks long-term study; (b) allows tests for NO effects other than over an extremely short duration, and (c) focused on whether a thermal effect occurred in that short timespan of singular exposure. That does not reflect the actual environment of RFR being created around the public in this country; nor engage properly with the need for caution, the impact on the vulnerable, or the scientific evidence of harm already available and presented in this case. 

Our evidence plainly sets out the issues that need to be properly addressed, including that the government has not followed due process as noted above. There are disclosed certain deficiencies of reasoning, and serious questions and points raised that have not been answered.

Common to each of the Defendants’ decisions challenged in this case is that they are actions uninformed by an analysis by the United Kingdom of the presently available data and scientific knowledge concerning the risks to health from adopting these levels of radiation exposure.

As the infrastructure is continuing to be ‘rolled out’ across the country, near schools and hospitals, in residential and rural areas alike, life for many is increasingly challenging. The weight and content of our evidence, and the implications that we have set out, indeed have serious implications for government and for the telecommunication industry.

We stand together with all of you, all over the country, all committed to the many initiatives that bring this to the attention of others, and standing firm in our intention to see the matter safely resolved. The health of a nation should not be disregarded for the possible benefit of the few.

In the place of radiating electro-magnetic frequencies, we must radiate the light of wisdom and good intelligence, so that this planet and this nation will thrive. We are living through a time of mixed, confusing and often incorrect messages or are contending with the prospect of not being heard. At the heart of this is our call for the arena to be open in which the evidence is reviewed for the safety of all and where proper argument is heard. We are determined to break through obstacles and resistance, and bring clarity for wise action to be taken. The outcome depends on honesty, integrity and truth.

We very much need your support now as we go forward for the next stage in this legal process.

Team AA5G so very much appreciate all you have done to get us and our fantastic, committed legal team, this far. We will not waver in our determination to succeed.

With our gratitude to you all for your ongoing support, we fight on!
