The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is run out of a council property bedroom in Everton, Liverpool. They gave us a piece of their red banner that has previously been used for many creative protests and demonstrations. The white piece of material was torn from the duvet they used for their bed-in at the bluecoat in October – where they protested against university tuition fees. One of the significant activist innovations that the institute has instigated this year has been to develop the Free University of Liverpool. The university will offer undergraduate level teaching for free as a reaction to the current government’s plans to increase the fees for students who wish to attend other universities.
