We need your help to fight the £2 billion Silvertown River Tunnel planned for East London. We're a coalition of activists working to have this toxic tunnel cancelled. We've already commissioned a London-wide opinion poll which showed that 60% of Londoners want new investment spent on public transport, safer cycling and walking routes, rather than a road tunnel. When built the Silvertown tunnel will bring tens of thousands of new vehicles a day - many of them HGVs - into Newham on the north side and Greenwich to the south, near local schools and homes. These areas already have illegal levels of air pollution and include some of the poorest communities in London. We've gathered top experts to make the case for cancelling the tunnel and we're planning some big events early in the New Year once the Covid rules are relaxed. But this is a big fight against powerful interests and we need money to fund it. If we don't stop this tunnel now, London will be stuck with a toxic monster for decades to come. This outdated project has no place at a time of climate emergency. Please give what you can to help us defeat it.

Thank you. This ill-conceived project has no place given climate- and health-related imperatives.
