    Protesteroo is a socialist rerouting of the gig economy food delivery company Deliveroo. A singing and cycling protest service that reactivates activities from the historic Clarion social movement to deliver on-demand messages of hope and resistance.

    Protesteroo was conceived as part of Three Day Work-Out; a three day event exploring the connections between work, social movements and free time at Tate Liverpool in May 2019. The Clarion, a historic social reform movement, was very active in Liverpool in the late 19th century.

    Three Day Work-Out, revisited it’s core activities: communal cycling, singing and publishing to reflect on current debates around modern forms of work and leisure.

    The project brought together the Liverpool Socialist Singers, and the Angry Margaret Protest Choir (BCU) led by Infinite Opera. Members of the public were invited to update songs from the Clarion Song Book and specify a location within a 2.5 mile radius of Tate Liverpool where they would like their protest to be delivered.

    Tate Exchange became the Protesteroo HQ, hosting a range of participatory events. These included a film screening of The Last Clarion House (2017), directed by Charlotte Bill, a talk and discussion with Prof Peter Cox on the Clarion movement, cycling cultures, and activism and a drop in a zine-making workshop led by Gareth Proskourine-Barnett and BAAAD Press.
