Eco-Extremists Deflate Hundreds of SUV Tyres to Stop “Racist” Pollution

As Insulate Britain retreats to lick its wounds, like whack-a-mole, another group of eco loons has cropped up to fill the void. Rather than gluing themselves to the road, however, ‘Tyre Extinguishers’ have taken to direct vandalism: they’re deflating the tyres of hundreds of SUVs across multiple cities in the UK – or as they put it, “disarming” them – in an effort to stop “unnecessary luxury emissions“. According to their press release, this is part of their plan to stop “racist” air pollution. (Air pollution is apparently racist because; people of colour live in areas more likely to be exposed to toxic air. SUV drivers tend to be richer, and therefore tend to be white.) Right…

The group is understood to be a splinter group of Extinction Rebellion (obviously), and is known to leave leaflets on the ‘disarmed’ vehicles demanding their owners rely on public transport. “Don’t take it personally. It’s not you, it’s the car”, they reassuringly claim.

Tyre Extinguishers claim:

“Governments and politicians have failed to protect us from these massive unnecessary vehicles. SUVs are a climate disaster, they cause air pollution and are dangerous for other road users. Everyone hates them, apart from the people who drive them.”

It never ends…
