It began one day in a dirty kitchen. We decided to set up an agency, an agency to protest. We had big plans. We wanted to be a shop, an employer, a business and a charity. We ended up with a website, a Twitter account and a Facebook page.

At Least We Tried is a performance about setting up and running a ‘protest agency’ during the summer of 2012. The agency fulfilled requests from the public to protest on their behalf, which included: demonstrating for a four day week, objecting to frozen school dinners and a Pussy Riot Protest Weekender Package (only £9.99).
