Annecy demonstration 7 February

Say no to air pollution in Haute Savoie

60 to 80 deaths each year are caused by the poor air quality in the Arve valley, from La Roche to the Chamonix valley, (40 to 50 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, according to InVS). 6% of annual deaths in France are attributable to air pollution. Is this acceptable? Really?

Fed up of breathing air that is harmful to your health?  Worried about the health of your loved ones? Then be in Annecy, without fail, on 7 Feb!

Let's take action against a silent scourge

Last February 1300 of us protested in Chamonix against air pollution. Several thousand people need to be in Annecy on 7 Feb to demand effective measures against air pollution in the Arve Valley and in Haute Savoie. The demonstration is organised by a citizen of Chamonix and is supported by local environmental organisations, various networks and by doctors.

Only a mass presence in Annecy on 7 Feb can demonstrate our exasperation with the inadequacy of the measures put in place so far to protect the health of people Haute Savoie. It is time to stand up, take action and work together to improve air quality.

The Plan

09:30 - Meet in front of the Annecy train station
10:00 - Procession leaves for the Prefecture of Haute Savoie
In front of the Prefecture, Inspire will ask 60 people to lie down on the road, in order to represent, in a very visual manner, the 60 deaths at the very least that occur in the Arve Valley each year.  Please contact us if you would like to take part in this strong symbolic action.
