Nanna Helen talks to ABC Life Matters about older people protesting

Not just a youth movement: taking up protest in retirement

When we think of protesters, we tend to think of the young. But older people have always participated in protest, even if those contributions are less obvious.

Taking up a cause in older age can add meaning and community to people’s lives, and be a powerful example to younger activists.
