A leader of Extinction Rebellion called on protesters to bring down the government and warned that some people 'may die' in the process.
The shocking statement was revealed in a Policy Exchange report, authored by former counter-terror chief Richard Walton, which added that XR is aimed at achieving a breakdown of the state and democracy.
The group allegedly want to bring down capitalism and leader Roger Hallam told an audience: 'We are not just sending out e-mails and asking for donations. We are going to force the governments to act. And if they don't, we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose… and yes, some may die in the process'.
Roger Hallam an co-leader Gail Bradbrook are the intellectual driving forces behind the group, according to the report.
Former members of XR also claim that the group intended to target Heathrow airport with a drone.
Others claim that infighting is rife within the group and that some are 'being bullied' by vegan members.
Robin Whitlock, 53, a journalist who left XR in March, said he is worried about an 'increasingly Marxist tinge' to XR.
Writing in the Extinction Rebellion handbook, Hallam said: [This movement has been] united behind one shared vision. A vision of radical system change.'
In another interview, he added: 'I've been on the left all my life and I think it's fantastic. You know the whole socialist project; amazing. You know, it's brought loads of people out of poverty; brilliant.'
In response to the accusations, Hallam and Gail Bradbrook, both leaders of the group, wrote in the Telegraph: 'We oppose a system that generates huge wealth through astonishing innovation but is fatally unable to distribute fairly and provide universal access to its spoils.
'We need a 'revolution' in consciousness to overturn the system we live in, to strengthen our democracy, to find courage and give hope to our children.'
Bradbrook has also spoken about her willingness to die for the cause: 'I am willing to be arrested. I am willing to be jailed. And I can tell you something else; I am willing to die for this movement, because I am not leaving my kids with the future that they are set on right now.''
