Anyone have any other resources to use knitting as a form of activism?

I googled 'knitting activism' and got the following, some specific, some general (search for 'knitting' on them):

I don't have any personal experience, but I find it interesting. I guess I have a bit of reading to do!

That's pretty darn cool. I would love to see the finished product too! Since its in London, I doubt it would make news in the US. I'll have to bookmark it to see how it ends up. I have so much extra blue yarn too - I'll need to do a few squares.

That is cool. I'm going to start on my blue squares today. :)
