Bureaucrash is a project of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a libertarian think tank based in Washington DC. It is an international network of activists with the common goals of decreasing the scope of government and increasing individual freedom. Bureaucrash itself is not only non-partisan but shows a certain amount of disdain for the political system through features on its website such as "Politricks" and "Mock the Vote."
Recent actions have taken the form of holding counter-demonstrations at key progressive events and filming themselves either with provocative placards, or interacting with the attendees. Actions have included demonstrating at the premier of the movie Sicko to protest against socialized healthcare, picketing the World Health Organization conference with the message that capitalism saves lives, and painting The Yes Men on a failed attempt to target into the Cato Institute.
