Climate activists are targeting rich SUV owners, deflating the tyres of over 50 vehicles in some of London’s richest neighbourhoods.
Motorists in Kensington and Chelsea, Belgravia, Clapham, and Islington awoke this morning to find their tyres let down after activists from Last Gasp inserted mung beans into their tyre valves.
It’s the latest in a series of similar protests, after climate activists targeted hundreds of SUVs across the country last month.
A spokesperson for Last Gasp said: The SUVs that fill our children’s lungs with toxic chemicals are also fuelling the onslaught of flooding, drought, starvation, and war that the world is facing under climate collapse.
“Thousands of people die in the UK every year because of air pollution, and millions more around the world will die if we allow the natural world to break down.”
This week’s IPCC report, which sounded a “final warning” for avoiding catastrophic climate change, put an emphasis on the outsized emissions caused by the richest 10 per cent.
