What are you knitting? - A revolution
Meet the Knitting Nannas against Gas and hear about their unique approach to engaging older women to become environmental activists. The ‘Nannas’ actively protest against Coal Seam Gas extraction or ‘Fracking’. They started in 2012 in Lismore (NSW) and have grown to over 40 groups around Australia including a handful in USA and UK. Their unique form of protest involves sitting, knitting, educating passers-by, offering support, and plotting actions.
Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG) peacefully and productively protest against the destruction of our land and water by exploration and mining of Unconventional Gas & other non-renewable energy sources. KNAG draws on a broad history of knitting used as a tool for non-violent political activism. They view their knitting skills as less important than the act of bearing witness while they knit.
