Stop Killing Cyclists traffic pollution protest 27 April 2016

[See also: Stop Killing Cyclists Vigil and Die-In at TfL's HQ December 2013]

 

Protest and die-in outside the Dept for Transport calling for urgent action to eliminate transport pollution and to condemn the UK government's actions which, protesters maintain, over the last year have deliberately destroyed progress towards reducing the horrific death and disease toll from transport pollution.

 

In London alone 9,500 are dying every year, with another 95,000 living with lung diseases, heart problems, cancers, asthma, emphysema and lung infections from traffic related pollution.
