How do you turn your nonviolent protest into a street theatre? By hiring unwilling actors, who might be very good at their job, like the police. In this video you will learn from the world-famous Yes Men how to incorporate predictable actors in your protest and create a theatre full of comedy and drama. The video is part of our 20-part web series “Creative Resistance: Inside The Creative Nonviolent Struggle“ in cooperation with ARTE Creative.
The Yes Men from the United States have already embarrassed some major corporations with their creative and subversive activism. One of their creative methods of nonviolent resistance is to deliberately mislead the mainstream media. Group members like to adopt certain roles of representatives of international corporations and to caricature their goals in conferences by exaggerating their claims.
