The Hinsdalean - Community journalism the way it was meant to be

Pay attention to the European response to 5G rollout

“... Switzerland melds the best of all worlds — and adds a healthy dose of chocolate, cowbells and cable cars.” — Rick Steves

Not mentioned by Steves is the more than 2,000 antennas the alpine country has built to roll out 5G technology, which some cantons have recently suspended. One must wonder, “Why?”

In Brussels, former Environment Minister Fremault stated that the people are not guinea pigs whose health can be sold at a profit and a pilot project is not feasible with the current radiation standards. Current Minister Maron has issued concerns about data security and respect for privacy.

In Italy, more than a 100 municipalities have taken action against 5G.

Like many Hinsdale residents we love Europe. We plan to live there. For now, Hinsdale’s charm has captured our hearts.

Within this charm lies the immediate threat of 143 poles placed every 200 feet. Unsightly towers in close proximity to our preschools, schools and places of worship. Towers that have been halted, banned or fought against in Europe. There may be no limit to the number of antennas and poles placed in our town.

Last I’ve checked, I see that more than 2,200 of you have signed the Stop 5G small cell installation petition. With a population of over 16,000, I hope more of you take time to learn more ( and join the fight to maintain our village’s charm.

As we all know, it takes a village.

Grazie mille. — Rae Mugnolo, Hinsdale
