A crowdfunding appeal by the climate change protest group Extinction Rebellion has raised more than £800,000 in less than a week to support its direct action in London.
The appeal, which will help to maintain the movement's headline-grabbing shutdowns and support the living expenses of the "rebels" on the ground, is well on its way to hit its target of £1m by the end of the month.
Monthly living expenses of £400 for full-time rebels and £200 for part-time rebels are available.
More than 600 people have been arrested so far as a result of the non-violent disruptions in London.
Jayne Forbes, a spokeswoman for the organisation, told Third Sector it was a campaigning group with no plans to apply for charitable or any other kind of legal status.
Forbes added she hoped the movement would be a short-term phenomenon.
"We don't want it to be long-term," she said. "If we don't get this under control in two years we are all stuffed."
