The Yes Men Strike Again!

Dearest Allies,

Happy #SecondThanks! We’re feeling good in the wake the Department of Energy’s announcement to convert the US entirely to renewable energy. This hilarious infiltration will comprise the final scene in The Yes Men Are Revolting. Now, on to the real work: using people power to compel our leaders to enact these sorts of radical yet sensible changes so we can sustain a livable planet. Please spread the word about the action using #SecondThanks and share coverage from Democracy Now: http://bit.ly/Q3izlA

Behind the scenes, our savvy editorial team has been making good progress, and we still hope to have the film ready by the end of 2014.

This fall, we had the honor of showing rough-cut scenes at the prestigious CPH:Dox in Copenhagen and the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam. We had great responses to our “sneak-peek” pitches, saw lots of amazing films, reconnected with old friends and made new ones at these multi-day events teeming with leading filmmakers and change-makers.

As you know, another project is being developed in parallel: the Yes Lab Action Switchboard. This online platform will be launched alongside the film and will bring people together for creative direct actions. We have been working closely with marvelous developers from Glocal Cooperative, and with designers from The Public Society. We purchased and configured a new server that will handle the large amount of data the Switchboard will require. Last June, the project was awarded a major grant from Tribeca Film Institute's highly competitive New Media Fund. Although the grant doesn't quite cover all the costs, it ensures that we will meet our ambitious timetable for launch.

If you are in New York City, join us for a party! We’ll play pin the tail on the lobbyist, imbibe, snack on baos, bid on fabulous and unique auction items, chill with the Yes Men, and show a sneak preview of the film, all at Splitty, a great venue in Brooklyn. Space is limited, so register now. Each ticket gets you a beer or wine, steamed bao, and enters you into the raffle. That’s happening Wednesday, June 4, 7 pm, at Splitty (415 Myrtle, Brooklyn).

As always, thanks for revolting with us - soon, we will make a huge splash and we are so happy that you're a part of it!

Mike, Andy, Laura and the rest of the Yes Folks
