Ten families are suing the State of France because of the air pollution

With the support of two French environmental NGOs, ten Parisian families have decided to sue the State of France. Those families started this procedure because of the inactivity of the public authorities in the last few years regarding the reduction of the air pollution in some areas of the French capital. Indeed, those families all live on important arterial roads, such as the Boulevard Périphérique.
In all cases, members of the family got seriously ill because of the bad quality of the air and some of them even have been hospitalized. In almost all of the cases, the children of the family were also affected.
