Candle/Lantern Vigils for Safer Technology
December 18, 19 2021
We invite people around the world to join together on December 18/19 with Candle/Lantern Vigils to honor increasing reverence for nature, and to call for a Stop to 5G.
5G is the “next generation” of wireless telecommunications infrastructure build-out. It presents unacknowledged risks to human health and the environment, and perpetuates rather than addresses economic, digital, and racial inequities. 5G will vastly increase energy consumption, the exploitation of poorer nations via resource extraction and e-waste, and violates human and community rights by placing profits before people.
Freedom remains a central theme for the events, as surveillance and control increasingly infiltrate our world.
We invite you also to focus events on the newest threat, the “Smart Ocean”, aka the “Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT)” which poses an imminent danger to marine life and Earth. (For more click HERE.)
The “Smart Ocean” will complement c. 100,000 Satellites being planned and launched into Low Earth Orbit, and 4G/5G infrastructure on land. Together these three domains — the heavens, ocean, and land — will weave together one global massive Web of Destruction to be used by the military, and that also poses a dire threat to the Natural World and all living beings. (For more on satellites, click HERE.) (For an Overview of 5G vs Safe Tech, click HERE.)
This unconscious disregard for Earth must stop before our Planet is trapped in a blanket of Electrosmog and we are all locked into an inescapable Planetary Electronic Surveillance Grid.
Why place events on the Solstice and Equinox?
The winter solstice has been observed for millennia in cultures that were aligned with the rhythms of nature, as a time for reflection on the balance between darkness and light. The Solstice marks the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere. (NB: The Candlelight Vigil has been set for Saturday/Sunday, December 18/19, although winter solstice falls on December 21. Any of these days would work for an event.)
The call to Stop 5G represents the intention to reclaim reverence for the abundance and generativity of the natural electromagnetic environment of the Earth. It recognizes the need for technological innovation to operate within, rather than in defiance of, the Laws of Nature.
In times like these, each one of us needs to be a beacon, and what better way than to create Circles of Light all over the World?
Stop 5G Candle/Lantern Lit Vigils would be good in the Northern Hemisphere, to shine a Light in the dark.
In the Global South, Stop 5G Bonfires/Barbecues might be an idea! Wherever you live and whatever you fancy, consider making Light a main theme.
Post your Event – and later your pictures – to Global 5G Protest and to Stop 5G International:
