Watch! Environmentalists attack Trump course
No more Tigers No More Woods!
Words: John Dean
A group of environmental activists have vandalised one of POTUS Trump's course and defaced it with the slogan 'NO MORE TIGERS NO MORE WOODS.'
The group calls itself an “anonymous environmental activist collective” and broke into Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, to carve a message into the green with six–foot–tall letters that said: “NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.”
In a statement sent to The Washington Post, the group said the vandalism was carried out in response to the Trump administration’s “blatant disregard” for the environment.
“In response to the President’s recent decision to gut our existing protection policies, direct action was conceived and executed on the green of his California golf course in the form of a simple message: NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS,” the statement said.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the department received a call on Sunday morning about grass being dug up around the fifth hole at the golf club. The spokesman said the department sent a deputy to the scene to determine whether the damage constituted an act of vandalism or whether it was accidental.
The message was carved into the green using gardening tools and took less than one hour to accomplish, according to a member of the group who discussed the project with The Washington Post on the condition of anonymity.
The group consisted of four people, who accessed the course by scaling a fence and “walking down a steep hill laced with cacti,” the group member told The Washington Post. “Tearing up the golf course felt justified in many ways,” the member said. “Repurposing what was once a beautiful stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right.”
“We hope this sends a message to Trump and his corrupt administration that their actions will be met with action,” the member added.
Whatever your views on the Trumper, we don't like people vandalising greens.
