Climate Rush bring the pollution glue farce home
Another amazing action from Climate Rush in advance of their Spring Clean event on April 19th.
Very early this morning, three activists snuck up and stencilled a message on the pavement right outside Boris Johnson's home using actual London traffic soot glued to the pavement.
Boris has made an art out of hiding London's horrible air quality in the face of impending EU fines.
He's recently taken to using lorries to literally spray glue on the roads around the monitoring stations that measure the bad air at London’s most polluted spots, while taking no real steps to cut the level of traffic pollution. With several policies he's made things worse, such as delaying new Low Emission Zone standards and cancelling part of the Congestion Charge Zone. Oh and also making 'smoothing traffic flow' a top priority rather than helping people to reduce traffic.
Climate Rush said today:
We want to remind Boris that this health epidemic will be solved through reducing the number of vehicles on our roads, investing in safer cycling infrastructure, and lowering our prohibitive public transport fares – not with glue.”
For extra entertainment, you can watch Boris being grilled by Assembly Member and Green candidate for Mayor, Jenny Jones here: Boris loses his cool over 'pollution glue' questions
Try to find the particular discounts, yet take into account that an individual constantly acquire everything you buy.
So many thanks for the abundant advisory write-up.
