The New South Wales government introduced bills to make protesting an offence without any consultation earlier this year.
The anti-protest laws are under the Roads and Crimes Legislation Amendment Act 2022.

This will affect many protests and causes, but the Knitting Nannas want clarification of these laws since they are protesting and helping their communities.
