“Final evening (the night of Monday twenty eighth November and early early morning of Tuesday twenty ninth November), citizens in 8 international locations deflated tyres on almost 900 polluting SUVs. This is the largest coordinated world-wide motion in opposition to significant-carbon autos in background, with a lot of much more to occur,” the team explained in a assertion.
“This is the biggest evening of motion but,” the assertion additional.
“We want to display that everyone, just about everywhere, can get weather motion to stop the dominance of enormous automobiles in the world’s towns. All they need to have is a leaflet and a lentil! Our motion will proceed to develop – when the thought is out there, it cannot be stopped,” Marion Walker, Tyre Extinguishers spokesperson explained.
The Tyre Extinguishers have criticised SUVs as unneeded ‘luxury emissions’, by the rich and privileged as they take into account the car a weather catastrophe.
