For the last 20 years, notorious culture jamming activists the Yes Men have staged outrageous and hilarious hoaxes to draw international attention to corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. Armed with nothing but quick wits, thrift-store suits and a lack of shame, these iconoclastic revolutionaries lie their way into government functions to expose the dangers of letting greed run our world. Their satirical interventions at business events, on the internet, television, and in the streets form the basis of their everyday rebellion. In the wake of the Occupy Wall Street protests they embark on a new campaign to combat climate change denial.
Global issues need global solutions, but starting on a local level. Let’s speak out together against any kind of global injustice - get up and act !
“It’s going to take every one of us speaking out and showing up in order to effect real change for the environment and every other important issue of our time. That’s why this film will inspire you to join us in REVOLTING. Because it WORKS, and because it’s FUN.“ – The YES MEN
