Protest Is Liberty's Ally
In the first decade of the 21st Century, many commentators pointed to a lack of appetite for protest in Britain.

This artwork highlights protest's significance as a guarantor of freedom. Otherwise, if nothing is contested, is freedom any longer present and actual?

'Protest Is Liberty's Ally' is part of, a mass public art project by public artist
Martin Firrell
calling for greater social justice.

It aims to create debate about power and gender, women's equality and masculinity, alternative forms of economic and social organisation, black power, and solidarity between people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.

It includes posters, publications and events supported in 2018-19 by the artist's residency with leading Out of Home media company
Clear Channel UK.
