Uruguayans take to the streets to protest 5G technology
As reported recently, Uruguay was the first country in Latin America to install a commercial 5G network. Despite making history, protests recently erupted in the Maldonado region over the potential health risks associated with 5G technology. In Summary Residents in Maldonado's La Barra and El Tesoro neighborhoods demanded the removal of recently installed 5G antennas. Demonstrators urged officials not to install any more devices until it is certain whether or not they are harmful. "5G is killing us," said one of the protesters during a protest on June 8. "Antennas were placed in La Barra and Nueva Palmira for the time being, but (authorities) will do it throughout the country." Nowadays, many countries are racing to install 5G networks throughout the world. So far, Uruguay joins other nations such as Japan, Spain, the United States, among others, in pioneering these innovations.
