Stop Killing Londoners: Cut Air Pollution Protest No. 9

Hosted by Stop Killing Londoners and Rising Up

 

Campaigners will once again take to the streets to protest against the criminal levels of air pollution experienced all across London. We are demanding urgent and immediate action to sufficiently combat this national health crisis.
We want clean air for all of us – including YOU! So please join our public action and raise your voice with ours.

Stop Killing Londoners is an escalating campaign to mobilise London’s communities to take matters into their own hands. With peaceful and creative direct action tactics ordinary people and local neighbourhoods across London are demanding that the London Mayor stops messing about on this life or death issue.

Say you are going on this Facebook event and we will message you more details. Thanks.

A Rising Up Campaign – please share.

OUR DEMANDS:
Immediate Demands:
The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) should be extended from the congestion charge zone to the north and south circular roads.

ULEZ should be introduced by the end of 2018.

ULEZ should introduce a robust particulate. matter standard for diesel vehicles.

Strategic Demands:
A zero carbon and ultra low pollution vehicle fleet for London. This means an electric vehicle fleet for the capital. The London Mayor and the UK Government to design a comprehensive diesel and petrol to electric scrappage scheme. Subsidies to be provided to individuals where appropriate to hasten the transition. A London plan for a supportive infrastructure for an electric fleet to be conceived and implemented.

An expanded integrated 100% renewable ultra low pollution public transport system for London.

A pay per mile pollution scheme for residual fossil fuel vehicles.

A hypothecated producer tax for car companies still producing fossil fuel vehicles –the money to be spent within the NHS treating the victims of vehicular petrol and diesel air pollution.

These policy charges have to be seen in the context of not only the avoidable deaths of thousands of Londoners each year from pollution but also the looming prospect of climate breakdown due to lack of emergency action on reducing carbon emissions. Failure to act is leading to the complete summer melting of the arctic ice within the next decade – an event which the science predicts will rapidly accelerate the increase in sea level rise and extreme weather events. We therefore face an international emergency to prevent the flooding of coastal cities including London in the coming decades and the catastrophic destruction of our food supplies. Air Pollution is therefore just part of this wider emergency. We therefore ask that you respond to this fundamental crisis and show some leadership and urgency on removing fossil fuel use in our city. To this end we will escalation our civil disobedience campaign until you agree to meet with us to discuss these vital issues.
