Hundreds of spectators witnessed a bizarre sight Saturday, when a slick new tech startup called RefuGreenErgy held a three-hour launch event in central Brussels, complete with four "RefuGreens" happily pedaling battery-filling bikes.

Who are we?

Ever since 1996, the Yes Men have used humor and trickery to highlight the corporate takeover of society, the neoliberal delusion that allows it, and (most recently) the Democrats' responsibility for our current situation. We've also focused on what we need to get Democrats to do, and how regular people can make sure they do it.

The Yes Men also help other progressive activist orgs to accomplish their own goals, through the Yes Lab. On this website you can:
• learn techniques for causing trouble
• read about Yes Men and Yes Lab projects
• arrange to do a Yes Lab
