Multi-Billionaire Financier Soros Spotted Among Extinction Rebellion Funders -
Extinction Rebellion is known for its awareness-raising protest events and for making demands aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change, although some fellow green organisations see their methodology as unrealistic. An anonymous person has allegedly acquired Extinction Rebellion (XR) working files that, among other things, contain information on the organisation's donors, Wordpress blogger Paul Homewood reported. The person who uploaded these files claims that they were not obtained via hacking, but due to poor privacy settings set on shared documents.
According to the purported Extinction Rebellion files, one of the over $1 million donations to the group's cause was made by famous US immigrant and financier George Soros. The sum provided by Soros was concealed even within the alleged XR working documents.

Joe Corre, co-founder of the lingerie outlet Agent Provocateur, allegedly donated £50000, Greenpeace £10000, and the European Climate Foundation £20000. As of now, half of the money raised in 2019 remains unused, according to the documents.
Extinction Rebellion is a climate advocacy organisation seeking to achieve a drastic change of climate policies around the world. XR seeks to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, using methods of civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance. Their actions and threats have raised eyebrows, including a proposal to shut down flights from London's Heathrow Airport in the Summer of 2019 using drones, although that plan was eventually shelved.
Send him to Russia to pay for his crimes
When is this old, Nazi bass turd going to give up the ghost. He’s a real PITA.
Bond villain. In real life.
In the good old days a G. Gordon Liddy type would have dispatched to take this POS out long ago.
“When is this old, Nazi bass turd going to give up the ghost. Hes a real PITA.”
His son is fully trained.
Soros cannot go extinct soon enough.
Nowadays they (Brennan, Clapper, Holder, Hillary, Obama cabal) only kill Seth Rich.
the financial elite are totally into the gloBULL warming scam. note the promise below for the funds to be increased “a hundred times” in the coming months:
12 Jul: UK Independent: Climate activists including Extinction Rebellion to receive £500,000 from US philanthropists
This might be single best chance to stop the greatest emergency we’ve ever faced, donor says
by Phoebe Weston
Grassroots climate activists like Extinction Rebellion are set to receive £500,000 from US philanthropists with the promise of millions more in the coming months.
Three wealthy donors Trevor Neilson, Rory Kennedy and Aileen Getty have launched the Climate Emergency Fund (CEF) to help support school strikes and activism groups like Extinction Rebellion.
This might be the single best chance we have to stop the greatest emergency we have ever faced, Mr Neilson told The Guardian. He said he hoped the fund will be increased a hundred times in the coming months as investors pledge to ask wealthy friends to contribute...
28 May: Capital Confidential: Extinction Rebellion means business in the Square Mile
Extinction Rebellion makes friends with financiers
By Tom Teodorczuk
Back to the barricades! Capital can reveal that Extinction Rebellion, the climate change protest group that brought Londons streets to a standstill last month, is launching a renewed bid to persuade the City to back its environmental aims. Weve already had some success engaging with the business community, an XR source tells Capital. Weve seen [governor of the Bank of England] Mark Carney, Legal & General and Axa. But were going to step it up by forming a business declares emergency movement which will be affiliated to XR. We want large banks, insurance companies, pension funds and hedge funds to openly declare we have a climate emergency and commit to zero emissions by 2025....
While many in the Square Mile took exception to the chaos caused by Extinction Rebellions protests, which resulted in over 1,000 arrests, the XR source said the movement has a growing number of City pals. A hedge fund manager has been significantly funding us, they said...
Who is this hedge fund donor? Extinction Rebellion wont say. But business leaders who have publicly backed its mission include Amy Clarke, co-founder of Tribe Impact Capital, and Bevis Watts, managing director of Triodos Bank...
23 Apr: BusinessGreen: XR Business: Green business leaders rally in support of Extinction Rebellion
by James Murray
The group also saw its support expand over the weekend with the official launch of XR Business...
The group was launched with a letter in The Times (LINK) signed by a host of leading lights in the green business community, including former CEO of Unilever Paul Polman, founder of Ecotricity Dale Vince, The Eden Project’s Sir Tim Smit, founder of Solarcentury Jeremy Leggett, Chris Davis, CSO at The Body Shop International, Safia Minney, founder and former CEO at People Tree Fair Trade group, and Diana Verde Nieto, CEO and co-founder, Positive Luxury Ltd, as well as senior executives at a host of sustainable investment firms, including WHEB, Zouk Capital, Next Energy Capital, and Triodos Bank UK.
“The multi million-pound costs that the Extinction Rebellion protests have imposed on business are regrettable, as is the inconvenience to Londoners,” the letter states. “But future costs imposed on our economies by the climate emergency will be many orders of magnitude greater.”
It adds that “contrary to belief, there is business support for the Extinction Rebellion agenda” and welcomes the formation of the new XR Business grouping to engage business leaders, investors and advisers.
“To drive things forward, the idea is to convene a meeting of XR activists and experts with business leaders and influencers,” the letter explains. “Most businesses were not designed in the context of the developing climate emergency. Hence we must urgently redesign entire industries and businesses, using science-based targets.”
The signatories to the letter also call on other business leaders to “make a declaration that we face a climate emergency and organise a session at a full board meeting to consider the case for urgent action”...
The protests were also given a further boost by the arrival of Greta Thunberg, who attended a series of events across London and will today meet with Westminster political leaders.
At a public meeting yesterday, the founder of the global School Strikes movement confirmed her support for the XR protests...
Reading a Tom Clancy novel “Locked On”, written in 2001 and it is almost prophetic in that it has a subplot of a multinational/terrorist driven set of attacks (dossiers) to try to stop a conservative President from being elected or to ruin his Presidency if he is elected...has a Soros-type character to boot.
