People of NYC vs. Koch

Posted: Updated:

We're on offense again, this time putting the spotlight on David Koch and denying him a chance to spend his millions on credibility and social status.

We organized a flashmob in the heart of NYC. We projected four Koch Brothers Exposed videos on the facade of the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center during our Guerrilla Drive In.

Our event is spontaneous and funny, but there's tremendous value in exposing the Koch ideology and legacy through a satirical bent. Our newest video features a choir, brass band, and New Yorkers renaming the Koch theater and sending a message to David Koch.

The brothers David and Charles Koch have a knack for getting buildings named after themselves. Everything from theaters, to sports arenas and medical buildings bear the Koch brand. So why do the brothers hide from burnishing their name on their political causes?

Brave New Foundation and middle class advocates The Other 98% teamed up to rally New Yorkers to rename the David Koch theater to something more appropriate and something that reflects his and his company's record of pollution, the Tea Party funding, and climate change denial.

As New Yorkers take the fight to David Koch, we're giving everyone the opportunity to rename the Koch theater with our latest Guerrilla Drive In video.

What the Kochs are doing to our democracy is serious, but with your help, we can use satire to grow our movement and stop the Kochs.
