Join residents of Hackney, Islington and many other London boroughs in our campaign against our councils’ draconian road closures, that are dividing our neighbourhoods. We say to the council that we are not lab rats or simply a problem to be managed, we are adults and we need to be trusted to make rational decisions about how we get around. It is not for officials and politicians to tell us how to live.
We all want cleaner, healthier neighbourhoods, but this can only be done with the full consent and cooperation of communities. We know what needs improving and what works best for one another. These measures are setting one group against another. Many of us are drivers, cyclists and public transport users. There is no need for division here.
