Stop the road to Silvertown


21 February 2020
18:00 - 01:00


The O2, London, United Kingdom



hosted by

Extinction Rebellion Greenwich

Twenty six people die every day in London as a result of air pollution. London has declared a climate emergency. Yet the mayor has approved a multi-billion pound new road tunnel to bring thousands of HGVS under the river between Greenwich and Silvertown. We will meet to grieve the loss of the twenty six. We will sing a song of protest and wail as we mourn the dead.

We need you to come and hold the space with us on 21st February, sing the song, and maybe even get involved in the performance or help with any other aspect of the project from handing out leaflets to costume and music to giving a talk on the impact of this tunnel (please message us or email if any of this sounds like you).

Please learn the song:


We are rehearsing at 7:30 @ The Forum on Trafalgar Road in East Greenwich on Thursdays (6th, 13th, 20th Feb), come along and join in!

See you on 21st Feb!
