The Outdoors Party urges the Government to postpone the allocation of any further 5G spectrum until there has been a full public inquiry. We will assemble a competent and qualified independent panel to look into the risks and benefits of 5G and long term scientific, medical and environmental assessments on the impacts in New Zealand, or worldwide, on human health and the wider biosphere. 

This Task Force will also investigate the safety and legality of the LEO (low earth orbit) satellites and the frequencies they use. Many of these satellites are being deployed from New Zealand for the US Military via private organisations.

Let’s educate ourselves and then let the people of New Zealand make an informed decision on the future of 5G
