Raging Grannies is an international movement which started in 1987 in British Columbia, Canada. It now has chapters (which we call " gaggles" ) all over the world. Raging Grannies promote global peace, justice and social and economic equality by raising consciousness through song parodies and satire. You can find hundreds of songs from Grannies near and far at http://raginggrannies.net.
Our gaggle, NYC Metro Raging Grannies and Their Daughters was started and sponsored by the New York City chapter of Women' s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Our ages range from 49 to 98.
If you live near enough to travel to our meetings in New York City (Manhattan), you can join the NY Metro gaggle.

We have often sung in Grand Central Station during Christmas week, with our own "carols." We usually get chased away by officials. Frequently, we find them sympathetic to our cause, and they help us find a new spot in the station. Members of Code Pink
and the Granny Peace
Brigade frequently sing with us.
Another annual Christmas week event is the protest against war toys with
the Granny Peace Brigade.
It's at a famous toy store, but we don't want to promote the brand name.
