‘Dutch MPs may block the placement of 5G masts in their own environment’
Secret meeting reports from the second chamber have shown that members of parliament have the option to block the placement of 5G masts in their own living environment. That made a source from within the second room known to us today.
Although the risks of 5G are not really known and the government puts little energy into conducting research into this, several MPs have expressed concerns about the new 5G masts. The Second Chamber has therefore indicated that politicians who would get such a mast in their own living environment can put a stop to this. They can even completely block its placement. MPs would find the placement of the masts ‘too experimental’ in the current phase, but strangely enough the placement of masts in other parts of the country remains the order of the day.
We previously reported that the oak processionary caterpillar may play a role in the spread of the 5G signal. Strikingly enough, the rise of the processionary caterpillar declined sharply from the moment our news item became more widely known. Here too, we see that in the vicinity of The Hague, the political heart of the Netherlands, hardly any caterpillars have turned up. That does not seem to be a coincidence either, given that politicians itself does not seem to want to take risks with 5G. For the time being, the rollout of 5G continues unabated in other parts of the country. We therefore expect an increase in the number of processionary caterpillars in the short term, a first ‘wave’ could be possible at the end of next week.

- HarmBroer de Vries May 16, 2020 at 6:49 pm Why are MPs allowed to block the placement of 5G masts and the rest of the Netherlands ??? This is also called Discrimination. All residents of the Netherlands suffer from 5G radiation.
- Désirée Röver May 17, 2020 at 9:17 am Vodafone has a commercial in which they announce that they will ‘turn on’ 5G in July.
I suggest everyone cancel their subscription!
And take a good look at how you will get your children back from school soon,
because 5G has (secretly) been installed in all schools.
Just like in all hospitals…
Think, observe, pass it on, make noise!
- Annie smells of heezik May 17, 2020 at 9:20 am Outrageous we Dutch may be exposed to the dangers of 5g, but chamber members may block it for themselves?
HERE IT APPEARS THAT THEY DON’T TRUST IT!
WE ARE VICTIMS AND NOT JUST WE, BUT ALSO BUGS INSECTS AND EVEN COWS CANNOT OR MAY REFUSE!

🌐 Dutch Telecom & Politicians Receive Thousands of 5G Notice of Liability
The impact of 5G on freedom & privacy and the lack of any democratic influence
Speech Maria van Boekelen of 5GNee.NL and WeAreChange.NL
National Demonstration # Stop5G The Hague 9/9/2019
Good afternoon, how great to be here during this nationwide demonstration Stop5G!
I would like to expressly thank the organization that, in addition to the impact of 5G on health, they also wanted to put the effects of the rollout of 5G on our privacy and freedom at the center of this demonstration. That’s what I’m here for.
Four years ago I started with Mark Verheij and Gijs Verbeek WeAreChange.nl conduct research for our documentary DIGITROPOLIS.
Just like Petra and Georgette, we were regularly ‘shocked’ in that process in The Hague. The urgency increased, the documentary was released in 2018 and was screened in various theaters throughout the Netherlands. We spoke to many interested parties during these meetings. To also share relevant current information as much as possible, we launched the information platform 5GNee.nl in 2019. For clarity; none of us, as far as we know, suffer from the effects of radiation. Safe new technology regularly makes us very happy. It allows us to collaborate remotely, produce and share our content via social media. In principle, the technology itself is not so much the problem, but by whom and in what context it is used.
Now at the heart of my speech:
The rollout of 5G curtails freedom and is indicative of a lack of democratic influence. You might wonder what 5G has to do with your privacy and security. A short introduction; 5G is not just the accidental successor to 3G and 4G. The 5G network can easily match the capacity and possibilities of the current fiber optic network in its full potential, but then completely wirelessly. As the speed of data traffic and bandwidth increase enormously, 5G acts as a driver of the Internet of Things (IoT); a network of diverse, continuously ‘communicating’ SMART devices, which ultimately form the building blocks of SMART cities.
From refrigerators to self-driving cars, from street lamps to health wearables, from smart meters to your smartphone, and from fully automated supermarkets to SMART offices. All these devices are connected to each other day and night by the power of the 5G network. What happens to all your data stored and shared by those different devices? Who Owns It? Who can access it? Who is your data sold to? At what price? And what do those third parties do with it?
Questions that are not answered and if they are answered at all you may wonder how ‘honest’ that answer is. The players or stakeholders that manifest themselves on the playing field of 5G are mainly the government, telecom and big tech companies. All parties that do not exactly have a track record that justifies the confidence of citizens or consumers.
Take Google, for example; this company is now known as the pied dog when it comes to violating your privacy. Google has been fined hundreds of millions of euros in recent years. That sounds like a huge punishment, but with an annual turnover of 136.8 billion it is of course a joke. What do you think will happen if Google, Amazon and Facebook receive your personal data even more and faster? Do they spontaneously transform into the best boy in the class or will they simply take the fines as a financial risk?
At the beginning of this year, Shoshana Zuboff, professor at Harvard Business School, published her masterpiece ‘The age of surveillance capitalism’, in which she roughly concludes that larger data flows by definition provide less freedom. Alarmingly enough, the fact that this kind of data abuse is already taking place all over the world without us actually noticing it or being front page news. With 5G it becomes easier to collect, sell, enrich even more data about you and me, and ultimately to create the best possible profile of you and me and to sell it to the highest bidder.
Another practical example that shows that the government is not afraid to abuse your personal data. How about SyRI? No, not the very handy apple assistant, but the System Risk Indication. A government system that links citizens’ personal data, intended to detect various forms of fraud, abuse and violations. SyRI can draw on databases from organizations such as De Belastingdienst, the municipality, UWV, SVB, IND and other public authorities.
By means of secret data calculation rules, the so-called algorithms, citizens are placed under a magnifying glass who, according to SyRI, have an increased risk of fraud, abuse of facilities, illegal work and various other violations. We are talking about an opportunity, an opportunity. In principle, everyone is therefore suspected in advance.
These types of systems threaten the rule of law and undermine the relationship of trust between the State and citizens. Virtually all information that citizens share with the government can be used against them without suspicion or concrete reason. Source: bijvoorbaatverdacht.nl
Confidence in the government and the big tech companies has long been galloping on horseback, but with 5G that confidence gap is only increasing.
Oh, but then the situation in China!
Of course, we all know the surveillance technology that China uses. Their social credit system where citizens are actively sanctioned has even been extensively exposed by the mainstream media. Walking through despite a red traffic light? Then your name and shame appear on a large screen next to that traffic light. If you do that a few times, you will be blacklisted and you may be denied access to public transport, for example.
The system also monitors social and community behavior. Does that go against the standards set by the state? Then you get a lower social credit score. Behavior is assessed on the basis of as much data as possible from as many sources as possible. What someone says, does and buys on the internet can count. But camera and sound recordings in public space and facial recognition are also used. But that’s in China, a dictatorial country, very far away from here…. Source: Garrie van Pinxteren
But unfortunately that’s a classic misconception.
In April, the New York Times revealed how Ecuador, too, is already crammed with 4,300 cameras whose images are being sent to sixteen centers for analysis. No fewer than 18 countries, including Pakistan, Kenya, the Arab Emirates and Germany, are following suit. The governments mainly see the appealing benefits of mass surveillance; Cheap and Extremely Efficient. Shouldn’t citizens be protected from an overly powerful government? To what extent are we still ‘free’, even if we are constantly in the picture in the public domain, our personal behavior is stored? To what extent is your privacy still guaranteed in the public domain?
Look around you, how many lampposts do you see? How many bus shelters, how many traffic lights, how many manhole covers do you count? Are you aware that every 150 meters there is immediately a small 5G antenna capable of reproducing sound and images in real time and storing them in databases?
Nowadays the government considers it important that these antennas are especially not too noticeable, so they are even masked as a tree or placed under manhole covers. This is not a good thing, because although it provides a more attractive cosmetic image, citizens are also becoming less aware that they are constantly in the picture. What impact does that actually have on our society? How will people behave if they are aware that their behavior is being mapped out? To what extent can you still speak of freedom? What happens if this information is hacked by parties with evil intentions?
The impact of our digitizing society with 5G as a red carpet is not overseen by governments. The cabinet and members of parliament appear to have little or no knowledge about the expected technical and societal impact, backgrounds, studies and research. When we asked Frans Timmermans a few months ago about his reaction to the 5G appeal, he reported that he “had heard about it through the media”. A disappointing response from a politician who aspires to ensure the basic freedoms and rights of all Europeans. Unfortunately, he is no exception.
European political rulers seem ‘Unconsciously Inept’, but they do contribute to the success of the rollout of 5G. Are these the so-called ‘usefull idiots’ who drink a cup of coffee every week with the lobbyists of Google, Microsoft and Facebook?
But… “fortunately there is still such a thing as legislation” you think as an average citizen, but that also seems like a bending straw. There is too little and insufficient relevant legislation. The legal aspects surrounding 5G are not or insufficiently guaranteed. This is fully in line with the conclusions drawn by the Montaigne Institute in their 2018 Algorithms and Fundamental Rights report .
Commissioned by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, the authors described how the emergence of algorithm-driven technologies such as Big Data, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence are presenting a wide range of new fundamental rights challenges.
In short, they argue that these technologies will have an effect on the choices we make and thus on our personal autonomy. They also signal that built-in biases in algorithms can lead to unequal treatment. And I think we have more than enough in the Netherlands. It is going too far to discuss all legal implications at the moment, but now that we are here in The Hague I must of course conclude with the last key point; the lack of influence of the citizen on the roll-out of 5G.
What could we have completely influenced in this process? What about the current democratic influence of the citizen at this turning point in history?
The answer is short:
There is no democratic influence on the development, nor the introduction and implementation of 5G. This roll-out was primarily imposed by the European Commission. The result of the so-called Public Private Partnerships.
And people keep a finger on the pulse when it comes to the implementation of those plans. For example, the EU has already urged the Netherlands a few times to hurry up with that frequency auction. But Dutch ministers also think that the democratic influence of municipalities and its citizens should be over. That only stops the roll-out, there is money to be made, agreements have been made, the 5G train has to keep going … But for now, citizens can still object to their own municipality and talk to their direct representatives. And with success, because last week the municipality of Maastricht submitted its objections to the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate against the amendment of the Telecom Act. This happened after concrete actions by a group of concerned citizens from Maastricht. A small touch of influence…
But if it is up to State Secretary Mona Keijzer, that limited influence is also passable. In its bill, it wants to ensure that the government can impose municipalities to guarantee the roll-out of 5G. We are talking about the so-called ‘Antenna obligation’.
will then be obliged to cooperate in the construction of antenna
installations for superfast internet in public buildings, lampposts and
The Netherlands now has over 46,000 mobile antennas. In addition, tens of thousands will probably be added from 2022: then 5G will be rolled out on a large scale. The Telecom Agency cannot yet predict exactly how many antennas will be placed, but at the moment each antenna is one too many.
As long as no politician or CEO dares to guarantee our freedom and privacy in a personal capacity; if the influence of the citizen is further limited by new laws while no clear legal framework has been created to protect our fundamental rights?
In my opinion, the motto is very SMART and very simple; Stop the rollout of 5G!

An internet consultation on changes to the Telecom Code Implementation Bill is ongoing until 09-09-2019 .
An excellent opportunity to let us know what you think of the 5G extensions.
need inspiration? Here are seven reasons why 5G is not a good idea.
Other relevant aspects are lack of inventory impact on health, privacy and safety. In doing so, one ignores the precautionary principle. As can be expected to be used when implementing technology in which a serious impact on public health is expected.
5G? Also say “NO” before it is too late.
Come to the national demonstration on 09-09-2019 in The Hague and demonstrate against 5G!
Take time off and come and shake up politics this Monday!
Time: 12.00 – 14.30 hrs.
Meeting: 12.00 hrs at the Koekamp (diagonally opposite The Hague CS).
We start the run at 12.30 hrs. The route is Korte Voorhout, Toernooiveld, Lange Vijverberg, Kneuterdijk and the long part of Lange Voorhout. On the (broad part) Lange Voorhout (Toernooiveld side), there will be a manifestation between 13.15 and 14.30 where speakers will discuss the health effects and the consequences for privacy, among other things. We have also invited State Secretary Mona Keijzer to receive an information folder.
Of course we also expect the press. Do not miss this and report the voice of many citizens. There are hundreds of promotions worldwide. Several cities and states are already blocking 5G. Be with this first big action in the Netherlands, it is only the beginning.
The corpocratic system with the European Commission at the forefront is currently warming up to the entirely new infrastructure of data communication that must be operational within a considerable time, “large-scale commercial introduction by the end of 2020” (EC, 2016). We are of course talking about the 5G network here; presented as “more of the same” with a touch of “fun & convenience”, but actually a game changer whose level of impact is incalculable, but does not mean much in terms of content.
After all, the 5G network is the connecting factor for the concept Internet of Things (Internet of Things) driven by algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
On this platform, we therefore consider the impact of this infrastructure on health, well-being and ecosystem; the consequences for influence and power; personal privacy; and safety.
We invite you to explore these aspects with us and also to resist them. Among say too NO! practical examples, templates and other suggestions can be found to shape resistance.
The necessity for this lies in the fact that the corporation (de facto merging of corporations and governments with dictation from Brussels) either provides 100% cooperation to the 5G infrastructure or unfortunately has no idea what awaits us all. It is therefore up to you and us to take action (locally) against this: Think Global, Act Local! Be the change you want to see in the world! Be the Change!
