- official statement of the Knitting Nannas Against Gas
The Nannafesto below was developed by the
Founding (Lismore) Knitting Nannas Against Gas
Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG)
(large print version for those of us who left their glasses in the car)
We peacefully & productively protest against the destruction of our land and water by exploration & mining of Coal Seam Gas (& other non-renewable energy sources). We support energy generation from renewable sources.
Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG) is affiliated with the Lock The Gate Alliance. 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.
KNAG's aims are to bring attention to the issues surrounding CSG mining and exploration, to show our opposition just how far from radical the “extremists” who oppose CSG are, to entertain and inform the public and to bring new supporters to the anti-CSG movement.
We are happy to support other protest groups, either in persons or electronically. Suggested activities: knitting, crocheting, whittling, cross-stitch, sewing...you get the idea. Suggestions for new ideas are always welcome!
Knitting Nannas Against Gas:
you don't have to be a Nanna;
you don't have to knit
to save our land and water for the kiddies!
