The National Funeral for the Unknown Victim of Traffic Violence

Saturday 15 November 2014

Meeting at 12 noon in Bedford Square, marching down Oxford street and finishing 3pm at Marble Arch.

JOIN OUR EVENT ON FACEBOOK

Stop Killing Cyclists and Stop The Killing, together with campaigners from across the country, will hold a funeral procession along Oxford Street, the nation’s high street. This direct action is timed to fall on the weekend of the World Day Of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims.

It will be in keeping with the creative, respectful protests we are becoming known for and draw on the experiences of pedestrians, cyclists and drivers, as well as those more widely affected by air pollution and climate crisis caused by vehicle emissions.

Participants are encouraged to bring a white wreath or flowers to lay at Marble Arch, to symbolise peace, reflection and to echo the tradition of placing white “ghost bikes” at the site of incidents where a cyclist has lost their life.
