The activists are to warn Mr Johnson that he has just ten days to bend to their ultimatum, or they will “unleash hell”, according to the Mail on Sunday. The group have hit the headlines for blocking major motorways in and around London during rush hour traffic, much to the anger of delayed motorists and authorities.
They have targeted various hectic junctions on the M1, M4 and M25 motorways.
Irate drivers have been caught on camera ripping Insulate Britain banners from protesters who had used various tactics to block traffic on some of the country’s busiest roads at peak travel times.
An organiser addressed a group of activists on Saturday, according to the Mail on Sunday, which claims to have placed an undercover reporter within the group.
They say that the organiser, David McKenny informed the group: “There’s going to be an action on Wednesday and then there’s going to be a press release that goes out that says the Government and police are traitors, absolute traitors.”
He reportedly continued: “You have got ten days to make a meaningful statement on it. If not, we are going to come back and unleash hell.”
He added: “We’ve essentially split the opposition, because the police, the Government and the CPS are all fighting each other…
“We can’t underestimate [sic] the disharmony within the corridors of power.”
This comes days after the head of Insulate Britain admitted that he “doesn’t care” about insulating homes – the core goal of Insulate Britain.
Liam Norton, who was behind many of the motorway-blocking protests, does not insulate his own home, it was revealed earlier this week.
Speaking on talkRADIO, Mr Norton labelled himself a “hypocrite”, replying to the show host: “I don’t particularly care about insulation.”
By taking to the motorways to protest, the Insulate Britain protesters are defying a High Court injunction which was put in place to deter the demonstrators.
Put in place a few weeks ago, the injunction means that the protesters risk jail time for their demonstrations.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps tweeted about the injunction when it was granted: “Invading a motorway is reckless & puts lives at risk.
“I asked National Highways to seek an injunction against M25 protestors which a judge granted last night.
“Activists will face contempt of court with possible imprisonment if they flout.”
The demonstrators could also face unlimited fines.
On Wednesday last week, Insulate Britain protesters had blocked the M25 for the seventh time, stopping the flow of traffic in Kent.
In the group’s most recent press release, they say: “Insulate Britain recognises and understands Grant Shapps’ frustrations over the ongoing traffic disruptions, but he is just missing the point.”
They add: “Right now Grant Shapps, and the Government he is part of, are betraying the British people.
“By refusing to protect the British public from climate chaos, this government is locking in the destruction of our families, our communities and the British state itself.”
