massive knit nyc: knitting and activism

I came across a listing of some knitting and activism groups. There were a couple groups I hadn't heard of before: The Anarchist Knitting Mob in New York City and microRevolt. (They also listed the Revolutionary Knitting Circle, of course, and another site I already new about - I always take delight in finding out about other groups engaged in craftivism.

I found this listing on the Massive Knit NYC site. They did an amazing action back in May, protesting development threats against Washington Square Park by knitting various parts of the park together. Inspiring text and photos from the event are at their site.
