The Air That we Grieve March is part of the East London Uprising, a weekend of play, protest and education on July 12th – 14th that will feature arts, music, talks, workshops, guerrilla gardening, performances and marches, solutions area and non-violent direct action across East London.

East London demands action on Clean Air and the Climate Crisis in this peaceful, family-friendly march.

Schools, local people and politicians, including GLA representative Unmesh Desai, and Extinction Rebellion groups from across East London will come together to march to demand urgent action on air pollution and the climate crisis and raise awareness of the East London Uprising starting then till July 14th.

The march ends at Hackney Town Hall, where a children’s assembly will take place to listen to our youngest residents’ views of how we can clean up our air and save our climate.

We’ll assemble at 3.30pm for a 4.15pm start.
Where: Bethnal Green – meeting point: Paradise Gardens (next to Bethnal Green Tube station).
Route: March to Hackney Town Hall, where a Children’s Assembly for Clean Air will take place from 5pm.

The climate crisis that threatens life on Earth, and the dirty air that is killing so many people, share the same cause – the burning of fossil fuels. What’s more, they share the same solutions.

We need to act now.

Here in East London, children are growing up with stunted lungs, while government inaction on the climate crisis is pushing us toward a catastrophic future.

Join us!
