SUV Owners of America petition 'anti-SUV zealots'

The SUV Owners of America group (SUVOA) is delivering a petition with 6,065 supporter names to activist Arianna Huffington and other anti-SUV 'zealots', urging they stop encouraging groups like the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), which torched a dealership and has committed other recent acts of violence against SUVs and their owners.

The petition is being sent to Ms. Huffington, who created the anti-SUV Detroit Project; her colleague Robert Kennedy, Jr., of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Detroit Project; the Rev. Jim Ball, creator of the "What Would Jesus Drive?" campaign; and Fenton Communications, the public affairs firm behind both the Detroit Project and "What Would Jesus Drive?" campaigns.

The SUVOA noted in a release that California residents drive more SUVs than in any other US state, with more than three million of the 24 million SUVs in this country. One out of every 10 Californians drives an SUV.

SUVOA was formed to give voice to the US's 24 million SUV owners. It claims 16,818 supporters.
