Community Recognition Statement - Knitting Nannas

I acknowledge the remarkable efforts of the Knitting Nannas on the northern beaches. It is wonderful to welcome them to Parliament House this week. Bound by a common cause, the group works tirelessly to ensure that our precious land, air and water are preserved for future generations.

Our local Knitting Nannas gather to knit, converse and stand in solidarity against destructive practices that threaten our environment and divide our communities. Their presence at protests and meetings underscores their unwavering commitment to environmental justice and community solidarity. Importantly, the Knitting Nannas recognise the enduring stewardship of our First Peoples over this land. They honour the care and respect shown to country over tens of thousands of years. The nannas pledge to walk alongside Indigenous communities in the ongoing fight against those who seek to exploit our environment for short-term gains. I thank the Knitting Nannas; their dedication and activism inspire us all. To learn more, hop on their website to read their Nannafesto.
