We rage...

The Montreal Raging Grannies work to bring attention to peace, justice, equality and environmental issues. Our songs about the environment address the problems of clear-cut logging, toxins, pollution, single-use plastics, oil spills, fracking and radiation. We also have a wide range of “Anti” songs. Anti-war, free trade, nuclear waste disposal, poverty, war toys and violence against women.

We rage because:

  • Climate change is destroying our planet 
  • Gender based violence and racism affects everyone
  • In 2016, 49 armed conflicts were taking place costing trillions of dollars in military spending.  At least 14 countries use child soldiers under the age of 15 years
  • The world’s wealthiest 16 % uses 80 % of our natural resources
Climate March 2019

We have:

  • Presented many briefs at municipal, provincial and federal Government hearings
  • Participated in events at schools, CEGEPS, hospitals, churches, environmental and women’s organizations
  • Raged at countless protests
  • Demonstrated against clothing corporations’ persistent use of sweatshops
  • Marched with environmental groups to protest the government’s inaction on climate change
  • Moderated protest-song writing workshops at the annual Equitas International Human Rights Training Program
Against Tar Sands

We will continue to rage until:

  • Native land claims are respected and settled justly
  • Our planet’s future looks green
  • International disputes are settled peacefully and with justice
  • Violence against women and children is eliminated
  • Racism, Sexism, Ageism and other forms of negative discrimination are ended
