“Stop Killing Londoners – Cut Air Pollution” are a non-violent direct action campaign pushing for major changes to combat the problem of air pollution in London and across the UK.

Their tactic of escalating confrontation, beginning with short disco roadblocks and rising to repeated civil disobedience, is designed to confront the authorities and attract media attaention to a problem that is causing thousands of deaths in London every year and affecting the lungs of children on a massive scale.

This short summary describes their campaign so far and begins Real Media’s month of special reports on air quality.
