Sydney Knitting Nannas & Friends have agreed that their climate activism this year will include lobbying our sitting MPs and other candidates in the lead up to the NSW State Election to be held on March 25th, 2023.

The Coonabarabran Gathering on Saturday was an enchanting evening of togetherness, respect and culture.

They are conducting production enhancement and well suspensions, industry jargon for remedial works aimed at preparing gas wells for production.
Five Knitting Nannas attended the Say No to Santos Protest outside Santos’ office in Sydney on Thursday. Nannas have long been campaigning against Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project which includes 850 coal seam wells on Gomeroi land in the Pilliga Forest and surrounding farmlands in north west NSW.
