Stop Killing Londoners Road Block

Marylebone Rd, London, Wed 5 Jul 2017


 After the statement was read, the loudspeaker was used to play disco music

 and people danced on the road

 

 

 

 

One motorist tried to drive through, but people sat on the bonnet of the car  

 A driver got out of his car and argued with the protesters

 They told him we needed to get something done to cut air pollution which was killing thousands

 and that protests were the only way to get the authorities to move

 Procuding the evidence, lobbying etc hadn't got any effective action over traffic pollution

 The banner was turned around so that drivers at the front of the queue could see it

 even if they hadn't heard the statement at the start of the protest

 and after a short protest people left the road

 

 

 Police only arrived after the protesters had left and seemed more worried about the

safety of the protesters than the short hold up to traffic that had been caused.
