Enviroman says: "Hip, hip, hurray." Enviroman is of the opinion that for best results, one should use things for purposes which they were designed for. And four-wheel-drives were definately not designed for town use and guzzle precious petrol unnecessarily.
A group of about 20 people who called themself Les Degonfles (The Deflated) has declared war on SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicles) in Paris, saying they belong to the countrysides and have no place in Paris. Under cover of darkness, Sous-Adjudant Marrant (Sub-Warrant Officer Joker) and his troops deflate tires without damaging them, smear doors with mud and paste handbills on windshields proclaiming that the vehicles are dangerous, polluting behemoths that do not belong in the city.
Marrant said: "We use mud to say that if the owners will not take the four-wheel-drives to the countryside, we will bring the countryside to the four-wheel-drives."
Marrant and his activists plan to take his anti-SUV operations on Saturday, this time in daylight, to France, Britain, Canada and Australia. He is also writing a children's song as an anthem for the cause and hopes to record a dance-mix version before Saturday.
