WTO Protesters: The Raging Grannies
Seattle, WA

The Raging Grannies first formed in the winter of 1986-87 in Victoria, British Columbia.  Several peace activists who had been doing street theater had been dressing up in outrageous hats and singing satirical songs to protest against nuclear submarines, uranium mining, nuclear power, militarism, racism, clear-cut logging, and corporate greed.  In the tradition of wise women elders, the mission of the Seattle Raging Grannies is to promote global peace, justice, and social and economic equality by raising public awareness through the medium of song and humor.   You can visit the Raging Grannies at

Gaggle Against WTO

Oh, we're a gaggle of Grannies,
Urging you off your fannies,
We're raising our voice,
We want a new choice,

With the staring wages they're paying
To workers sweating and slaving,
The owners all thrive,
Will workers survive?

With their worldwide domination,
They will do the planet in,
We have got to stop them,
We must not let them win.

So join this gaggle of grannies,
Get up of of your fannies,
We're telling you now,
We're angry and how,

We really mean it, No WTO,
We mean precisely, No WTO.
We'll say it very nicely, No WTO.

-The Raging Grannies
