Haute-Garonne: new action by tire deflators in Toulouse and Castanet-Tolosan with 217 vehicles targeted
The collective “No Suv Tolosa” alias the tire deflators claim a new punch action in Toulouse and for the first time in Castanet-Tolosan.
The fight continues for tire deflator environmental activists. The Toulouse collective “No Suv Tolosa” claims a new action in the streets of Toulouse but also in Castanet-Tolosan, a first. In total, 217 vehicles represented as polluting by these activists had their tires deflated. These activists mainly target the famous SUVs, these large vehicles that look like 4x4s. Activists pointed out that these car models have no place in the public space because they are too polluting. This is why they are the target of these deflation actions. “SUVs are the second global source of CO2 increase in the last decade, ahead of the aeronautical industry”, say the members of “No Suv Tolosa”. “SUVs are grotesque and are pure vanity,” they add.
To deflate the tires of the vehicles, they are concerned with hidden faces and place a grain of cereal at the level of the valve. They then leave behind them a leaflet on the windshield to explain their gesture. The movement seems to be growing in Haute-Garonne, since the beginning of the year, nearly 500 vehicles, including this action, have been the target of their actions. This November 28 action has also spread. For the first time, “No Suv Tolosa” indicates that people acted in Castanet-Tolosan on the outskirts of Toulouse.
Previously, in our columns, several victims of these actions of civil disobedience were testified. This was the case of Nathalie who had missed a medical appointment because of deflated tires by this collective. In response, these activists reply: “for this time, turn on your phone and do like everyone else, ask Google where the buses are. You can also ask your neighbors for a helping hand to inflate your tires with a bicycle pump In short: get rid of your SUV”.
