Jeremy Corbyn's activist brother is joining a protest outside the civic offices this week to voice his fear that the Covid-19 pandemic is linked to 5G masts.

Piers Corbyn will be part of a rally organised by a 140-strong group called We do Not Consent to 5G Milton Keynes.

The group has this week written to all MK councillors, MPs and parish council clerks voicing its concerns that radiation from the giant 22m tall masts will be harmful to health.

Seven masts are planned for Milton Keynes as part of a £8.7 million UK-first £8.7 million project to test the new technology. See Citizen story here

"We are aware of the harm and science and object to being guinea pigs on untested technology," said the local spokesman Jill Gardner.

She started the protest group around four weeks ago after learning there were planning notices put up by MK Council during lockdown.

"Most people are not aware of these masts and what it entails," she said. "We organised submissions regarding the planning notices on the council website but were met with constant barriers from technical issues and lack of being able to contact anyone."

The government and watchdog experts say there is no scientific evidence that technology poses threat to human health

But the MK protesters say the World Health Organization (WHO) knew the truth about the harmful effects of microwave radiation as early as 1973, when it published a document called based on a symposium held in Warsaw and attended by 60 researchers specializing in the biological effects of microwaves on humans.

"We are horrified that there are ZERO studies to say that this technology is safe. There are over 10,000 peer reviewed studies to demonstrate biological harm and health hazards," claims Jill.

The letter sent to councillors and MPs urges them to take a stand on 5G in MK.

It states: "​As an elected representative of your constituents, you have a responsibility to us to discover why Lloyd’s of London and others are excluding this cover, and you need to investigate BEFORE allowing the proposed 5G mast installations to go ahead."

The letter adds: "There must be, at the very least, a moratorium on installation of 5G in Milton Keynes. Ideally, we call for total cessation.... There is too much conflicting opinion, posing as evidence, and not enough consideration is being given to the potential impact on others who, by definition, become victims.

"All over the world, ordinary men and women are calling for the implementation of 5G to be halted, subject to further studies on its potential to affect the health of all animal/insect/plant and vegetation, including human health, indiscriminately.

"Lloyds of London, one of the world’s premier insurance groups, refuse to insure health claims made against 5G wireless (“wi-fi”) technologies and other insurance companies such as Zurich Re are independently adopting the same exclusion provision."

The protest is on Wednesday at noon outside the council offices at CMK.

"Piers Corbyn will be joining us," said Jill.

Piers is an English astrophysicist and weather forecaster. Last month he was arrested during an anti-lockdown protest in London's Hyde Park, where he used a megaphone to proclaim 5G and the coronavirus pandemic were linked, calling it a "pack of lies to brainwash you and keep you in order"..
