3/18 Tue 7 PM The Yes Men live!

Date(s) - Tuesday 03/18/2008
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NEW LOCATION: Christ Church United Methodist, 35 State St. Directions here.

The Yes Men agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle out the stories of their hijinks to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business. In other words, The Yes Men are team players… but they play for the opposing team.

Ever wondered what makes The Yes Men tick? Check out this live-in-person presentation by The Yes Men and see clips from their upcoming film! Admission by donation ($10 suggested, $5 student/low income).
Here are highlights of some adventures by The Yes Men:
vivoleum - hmmmm


June, 2007 | Imposters posing as ExxonMobil and National Petroleum Council (NPC) representatives delivered an outrageous keynote speech to 300 oilmen at GO-EXPO, Canada’s largest oil conference, held at Stampede Park in Calgary, Alberta.

WTO Slavery Presentation - Listening


November, 2006 | At a Wharton Business School conference on business in Africa, World Trade Organization representative Hanniford Schmidt announced the creation of a WTO initiative for “full private stewardry of labor” for the parts of Africa that have been hardest hit by the 500 years of Africa’s free trade with the West.

Working the Press


August, 2006 | Mayor Ray Nagin and Governor Kathleen Blanco speak. After pitching his administration’s policies in the usual way, Nagin tells a long story in which truth and lie go skinny-dipping; lie steals truth’s clothes, and truth chases after. “What you have is truth running naked after well-clothed lie.”

SurvivaBall Handshake
Halliburton solves global warming!
May, 2006 | “The SurvivaBall is designed to protect the corporate manager no matter what Mother Nature throws his or her way,” said Fred Wolf, a Halliburton representative who spoke today at the Catastrophic Loss conference held at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Amelia Island, Florida. “This technology is the only rational response to abrupt climate change,” he said to an attentive and appreciative audience.
