Who is funding Just Stop Oil? The Billionaires backing the Art Vandals
Millionaires fund Just Stop Oil and are Encouraging the Vandalism of Beautiful and Historic Art the World over, with No Consultation of the People.
In Recent Weeks, the Violent Action of Eco Activists has Entered Museums around the World, including the National Gallery, London, the Vatican Art Museum, Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow and Barberini Museum, Potsdam. While there has been Widespread Criticism of the Attacks, some Media Outlets (including Salon, Vox and Wired) have Supported the Violence.
The Leading Group in this Action is Just Stop Oil, which claims to be “A Coalition of Groups Working Together to Ensure that the Government commits to Ending All New Licenses and Consents for the Exploration, Development and Production of Fossil Fuels in the UK.” Investigation reveals Just Stop Oil, and Linked Organisations Extinction Rebellion, Insulate Britain and Others, is Backed by Billionaires, Tax Exempt Charities and International Corporations.

Just Stop Oil states it is Partially unded by the Climate Emergency Fund (CEF), Founded by Aileen Getty, Granddaughter of Oil Tycoon John Paul Getty. The Getty Family, Collectively, has an Estimated Wealth of around £ 3.9B. Getty Personally put A Foundational Sum of £ 900,000 into CEF.
CEF acts as an Umbrella Organisation which distributes Funds to Eco Activist Groups Worldwide. CEF is a 501(c)(3) organisation incorporated in Delaware on 18 June 2019, which means it is exempt from federal income tax. Trusts, Foundations and Charities use this status for non-profit purposes. Although CEF features a ticker-tape list of small individual donors, most of its money comes from large donations. The executive director of the CEF is Margaret Klein Salamon.
Just Stop Oil says that direct action is needed now because the environmental situation is so extreme that it must enact “non-violent civil resistance”. Getty herself asked, “Don’t we have a responsibility to take every means of trying to protect life on Earth?”
The self-professed aims of these organisations and their millionaire backers are to bypass politics and implement radical measures upon the world’s population without democratic consultation.
With two members of the Aileen Getty Foundation on the board of CEF (with one of them appointed President), it seems that the millionairess essentially directs the organisation.
