The extinction rebellion admitted in a petition sent on Tuesday that it was taking “quite a bit of sternness” and asked celebrity supporters to post videos in support of the group “just to get some friendly and familiar faces to support us”.
The Extinction Rebellion said donors are not “worried” about whether they are pulling out or losing celebrity support.
“After a while, they’re all lost,” said Joe Corey, founder of Edge Corter, a lingerie company that donated £ 70,000 to the organization. He added: “It’s just a natural thing that happens and I think it has already started to happen with the extinction rebellion. “
He said the group remained important and added that he would still provide financial support “if they let me know they were going to do something that was going to be effective”.
The remarks came as 1,177 protesters were arrested in central London on Wednesday.
The latest stanzas of the extinction uprising included several naked workers glancing at the window of the fashion chain H&M’s Oxford Street store, while others tried to block parliament.
More than 60,000 protesters have been arrested this week, according to the metropolitan police.
