Uh oh, has Extinction Rebellion been co-opted already?

Ooops it looks as if someone typoed $600k into $600m. If we had $600m that would be a game changer.

I’m seeing “100 times that”, or $60 million.

What? I understood we don’t accept mega donors for well-known reasons.

Fight truth decay, avoid buyouts.
