Our Mission

Raging Grannies work for peace, social justice, and economic equality, through song and humor.  Politically conscious, but non-partisan, we write our own satirical lyrics to old familiar tunes, and perform whenever and wherever our message needs to be heard.

UPCOMING

During the Eugene Art Walk, the Raging Grannies of Eugene sang songs on the streets of Eugene in support of the Whoville camp site located on Hilyard and Broadway. Whoville, located on a city owned lot, provides a safe place to camp and sleep for as many as 40 homeless people in Eugene.

(tune- Side By Side)

 

O we're a gaggle of Grannies

Urging you off of your fannies

We're raising our voice

We want a new choice - Time for change

 

With all the money they're spending

Plus the dollars they're lending

We're going for broke

This isn't a joke! - Time for change

 

So join this gaggle of Grannies

Get up off of your fannies

We're telling you now 

WE'RE ANGRY, AND HOW!

Time for change

The first group to call themselves "Raging Grannies" sprouted in the winter of 1986-87 in Victoria, British Columbia.  Several peace activists who had been doing street theater began 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. They were sometimes arrested but never taken to court.
