TYRE EXTINGUISHERS HIT TARGET OF 10,000 SUVS DISARMED WORLDWIDE! 🎉🥳🪩🍾

LONDON: 184 SUVS DEFLATED ACROSS WEST LONDON ON MONDAY EVENING

184 SUVs disarmed in South Kensington, Maida Vale, St. John's Wood, Queen's Park, and Holland Park.

Statement from West London TX follows:

“We deflated the tyres of 184 SUVs by administering lentils into the valve caps. SUVs are the second leading cause of the global rise in carbon dioxide emissions over the past decade and are eighteen times more carbon intensive than a family saloon. In cities especially, they serve no function other than flaunting wealth and individuals convenience.

We cannot sit idle as the luxurious property of the few bring us closer and closer to runaway climate breakdown. Immobilising SUVs is a small and necessary act of resistance in the face of environmental catastrophe.

More must join the extinguishing affair. All you need is a lentil and a leaflet.”
