Cell towers can and do catch fire and collapse (see 1, 2). They reduce property value. They also emit harmful radiation also referred to as Electromagnetic Pollution or “Electrosmog”. This is why cell tower opposition in communities is not new.
The “Race to 5G” has increased opposition because it requires the densification of both 4G and 5G small cell towers near homes, schools, pretty much everywhere. Many cities and countries have already taken action against this including banning 5G, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 7. 8, 9).
Exposure to 5G (see 1, 2) and other sources of wireless radiation (see 1, 2) can reduce immunity and cause other health problems like increased cancer risk. Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick where 5G was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4). But again – it’s not only 5G towers that can cause illnesses.
If you are opposed to cell towers of any size being installed in your community, Citizens for Radiation-Free Community created this online document with directions on how to ask your elected officials to require “pollution insurance” from owners. Other organizations have also provided updated resources for Americans fighting small cell deployment as well (see 1, 2).
