ABUSE THE CAR INDUSTRY - FOR FREE
Did you know an awful lot of car companies have freephone numbers? Well, they do. If you feel strongly about the continued poisoning of the air we breathe for motor industry profit then why not waste a bit of their money getting your message across. Being wary not to fall foul of the abusive phone call laws, sensibly engage some unwitting salesperson in a long conversation about the kind of employers he or she is being taken for a ride by. Listen to them squirm as you put forward your totally irrefutable case for the virtual abolition of the motor vehicle for personal use. Ask them to note down your complaint and pass it on to their supervisor.
Such free telephone numbers are littered throughout the glossy magazines and daily newspapers, especially car magazines. Make a list of what you can find and spread the word to other likeminded responsible Earth people. Here’s an initial list to start you off. Watch their profits drop. Ha. Ha.
Rover 0800 52102
Lancia 100, ask for freephone Lancia
Ford 0800 111222/010112
Peugeot Talbot 0800 678800/800412
0800-525150 or FREEPOST,

Volkswagen Audi 0800-585685
DoD will have a regular page of freephone numbers & freepost addresses, which will be updated as and when you tell us any new ones. Freepost addresses are very useful for sending bricks, or any other object more appropriate/heavier. “Your policies cost the earth - now you pay!” is always a good one.

Procter & Gamble FREEPOST, Dept. 5394, Hendon Road, Sunderland SR9 9A (for clearcutting of British Columbia’s forests etc)
