We have the right to clean air!
November 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us on the last Saturday of the month, and every month, on a bridge near you to demand Clean Air Now!
Air pollution takes a huge toll on Londoners’ health, with an estimated 4,000 of the capital’s residents dying prematurely in 2019 from air pollution. Studies show living with dirty air also increases the risk of heart disease and heart attacks, as well as stunts lung growth in children.
The impact of air pollution is not felt equally either. People on low incomes and people of colour are far more likely to live in highly polluted areas.
This is a solvable problem. We need better and cheaper public transport and roads that are safe enough to cycle on, not ones choked up by unnecessary traffic.
The government is heading in the wrong direction with new road building schemes and pro-car policies.
