snenklehen They are using donations to wage their campaigns.
That might be cash to pay accommodation costs while planning a demonstration or travel to meet up with other activists. Everyone has got to eat!
These accusations by the Daily Mail are hardly damning. Posh climate protester receives £400 for planning and carrying out protest. I'm pretty sure anyone who donated was not stupid enough to think their money only went on materials to paint a banner. After all, an army (of sorts) marches on its stomach!
Less of the old, please snenklehen!!!!
