Anti-mining group, the Knitting Nannas, were a sight to behold in Gunnedah on Thursday.
Almost 40 women from Queensland and NSW donned bright yellow and held up signs outside the Shenhua Watermark Coal office in protest of the proposed mine.
The Nannas took advantage of AgQuip to spread their message and received plenty of honks from passing vehicles.
Founder Clare Twomey and member Louise Somerville were among those who gathered from Illawarra, Sydney, Lismore, Grafton, Central Coast, Cairns, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Kyogle, Western Downs, Dubbo and Coonabarabran.
“We want farms, not coal,” Ms Somerville said.
“Knitting Nannas want to leave the land better than we found it, for our children and grandchildren.”
After their display outside Shenhua, the group headed out to AgQuip to meet with fellow members and farmers.
About 100 members of the Knitting Nannas will spend three days in Narrabri over the weekend for their annual conference.
The Namoi Valley Independent contacted Shenhua who declined to comment.
