The Nannas met today at the usual spot outside the office of local MP, Chris Gulaptis, Member for Clarence.
To emphasise their point about the threat these laws pose to civil liberties in NSW, the Nannas chained themselves together using knitted chains. As one tired Nanna pointed out, "It's not easy knitting these chains. I've been so busy the last few days that I haven't had any time for nanna naps. I'm tuckered out and just want to get back to some straight knitting!!"

The Nannas enjoyed the outing and decided that the government's attack on civil liberties meant that they needed to return to regular knit-ins. As one Nanna said sadly as they packed up before heading to the coffee shop, "These politicians are really very slow learners. You'd think they would have worked out by now that gas-mining was a no-go because of community opposition. But here they are introducing fascist-type laws to stop protesters. Shows they still think they can foist gas-mining on us."
