We peacefully & productively protest against the destruction of our land and water by exploration & mining of Coal Seam Gas & other non-renewable energy.
Started in the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia (the little country in the ocean, not the one in Europe). Now international. (sourced from Facebook page 2/11/2021)
Knitting Nannas is an international disorganisation where people come together to ensure that our land, air and water are preserved for our children and grandchildren. We sit, knit, plot, have a yarn and a cuppa, and bear witness to the war against the greedy, short-sighted corporations that are trying to rape our land and divide our communities.
Knitting Nannas happily support other anti-greed groups at their protests and meetings, or online. We are non-party political. We annoy all politicians equally. Any selfies taken by pollies with the Nannas are a show of their enthusiasm to be seen with real celebrities.
The Australian Knitting Nannas acknowledge that the land we are trying to save for the kiddies is our First Peoples Country. We applaud their caretakership over the previous tens of thousands of years. We are so very sorry about the way the first European boat people treated you and Country.
We pay our respects to your Elders, past and present, and pledge to do what we can to protect the Country of your future Elders. We ask to walk beside you when we all face the evil greed of politicians, mining companies and any other organisations or persons that want to pillage Country for their short term financial gains.
