Description - The Idler (Issue 39) Lie Back and Protest by Dan Kieran

Is Protest worth the effort? This new issue of the Idler looks at the history and the present of Protest movements and asks whether there is any point in taking to the streets, or whether a more effective form of revolt might be to make a revolution in your everyday life. TOM HODGKINSON argues that anti-war marches are futile and that much more can be achieved by lying in bed doing nothing ... JAY GRIFFITHS meets the Papuan tribe who protested against their oppressors by eating them ... we celebrate the example of JOHN and YOKO who lay in bed for world peace ... we present a conversation with grand man of Britpop, MR JARVIS COCKER ... PENNY RIMBAUD reveals the meaning of life... DAN KIERAN breaks some laws and CORINNE MEIER meets three slacking film directors. Yes, the Idler is revolting. With new writing from TOBY LITT, MICHAEL SMITH and ALBERT COSSERY, the 93-year-old Parisian recluse, it must be our punkest issue ever.
