The Yes Men

Using humor and disruptive action to help take our democracy back

The Yes Men have impersonated officials from Dow, Exxon, Shell, Chevron, Halliburton, the US federal gov't, and many others in comedic direct actions that get tons of press around some of the biggest issues.

The Yes Men are currently making a movie, The Yes Men Are Revolting, that uses irreverent humor and disruptive action to focus on climate change, the corporate money in politics that keeps us from addressing it, and the Movement that can take our Democracy back.

They are also making a human-staffed platform—the "Action Switchboard"—that will give every single viewer of the film a way to plug directly into ongoing direct actions, or get lots of help starting new ones, around goals like the establishment of a carbon tax, the protection of the Arctic, etc.
