The Pearls of Pearl Street 30

Extinction Rebellion Cardiff Arts came and stencilled these figures on the wall in protest at the new incinerator planned locally in CF3. Splott already has one incinerator !

There are very high poor quality air levels in and around Splott, Adamsdown and Tremorfa. These areas of Cardiff are more typically working class and culturally diverse.

With Cardiff ranked 4th worst in the UK for air pollution and the poorer parts of town effected to a greater extent. The residents of CF3 are campaigning against a 2nd incinerator within their postcode. There is already one within the residential district that looms over the landscape and blots the skyline.

With evidence clearly showing the reduction in years of average life expectancy due to poor air quality XR Cardiff Arts have been busy cutting stencils to raise awareness and engage the local community as there are 10 days left to get objections in.

Expect more murals to pop up over the city. If you have a wall that needs decorating then contact extinction rebellion cardiff arts on Facebook
