Protests Erupt in London as Mayor Sadiq Khan Expands Carbon Tax Green Zone

• by Newswars

London: Mayor Sadiq Khan announced the expansion of a "green" zone that will tax drivers based on vehicle emissions. The Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges drivers in vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons £12.50 daily for driving within the zone, which has now expanded to include all of greater London, which will bring 5 million more Londoners into the tax zone. Protesters demanded Mayor Khan resign and the ULEZ project be dismantled. The UK is one of the European countries that's committed to the World Health Organization and World Economic Forum's goal of "Net Zero" emissions by 2050.
