HUMMER MAN EGGS ON GREEN ACTIVISTS.

Byline: By LISA O'CONNOR

A HUMMER owner in Russia's second city St Petersburg has given anti-globalists the green light to pelt his oversized vehicle with rotten eggs.

"Peter Anti-globalist" activists told news agency RIA they found a driver willing to let them express their dissatisfaction with consumerism by throwing things at his luxury vehicle, a spokesman said.

A Moscow car dealer puts the base price of a Hummer H3 at EUR49,500.

"Luxury is a false value, clouding modern society's vision. Advertising, TV shows and slick marketing constantly tells us that buying things is the most important value in our society," RIA quoted the spokesman as saying.

The anti-globalists said throwing eggs and tomatoes at the Hummer will help draw attention to their cause.

The vehicle's owner said he will then sell it and donate the proceeds to an orphanage.
