Extinction Rebellion is paying activists up to £400 a week to lead the protests that have brought chaos to the streets of Britain, documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal.

Protesters have received payments totalling more than £70,000 in four months alone.

But the eco-protest group privately fears it could face a six-figure tax bill if the money, which is given as expenses, is deemed to be payment for work done on XR's behalf.

A dossier of files from within XR reveals the inner workings of the protest movement and its finances.

They show how:

Activists have been paid more than £200,000 since the start of the scheme;
The cost of the payments is increasing by 'at least £40,000 a month';
Activists are targeting 'high net worth individuals' for more funds;
They spent £5,000 on a camping tour of Europe for key members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, at the end of the day, this "movement" is all about money; not about saving the planet.

So the questions the Brit courts and their forensic accountants need to be asking, is, who, precisely, is funding this, and what is their hoped-for final agenda here?!?
