The children are speaking truth to power

Climate damage is here, now. Queensland is suffering catastrophic heat, fires and dust. And floods cause chaos in Sydney.

And amongst all the turmoil is a game changer. The young people of Australia are striking from school to demand our politicians stop climate damage and stop Adani.

The children are speaking truth to power. And it’s time for power to listen. But PM Morrison and Bill Shorten are refusing to #MeetTheKids.

Kids have reported that Shorten’s office cut off their message about stopping climate damage and told them to go to school. The Prime Minister suggested the kids are out of their depth. But they beg to differ.

Will you sign the petition to demand Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten #MeetTheKids?

Ayo, 8, told the media, "I’m going on strike to make politicians think about the decisions they’re making and how they impact me. I can’t vote yet but I still have my right to a future and a world that is fit to live in."

Vivienne, 14, from Sydney, said “I'm really scared for me and for my generation and the generations that are going to come after me.”

This isn’t fair. Young people shouldn’t have to worry about climate change. But this is the reality of our era.

These kids are brave enough to look this problem in the eye and deal with it. So when will our political leaders do the same?

Prime Minister Morrison and Opposition leader Shorten meet coal lobbyists all the time.

We’re calling on them now to face up and #MeetTheKids. Add your name now.

I am disturbed that the Government would even consider supporting such a destructive project. Not everyone’s priority is to sell every resource for money. I wish to support those of us who value our natural resources in their natural state and would like to support those who wish to conserve it. The Political leaders should be willing to hear the concerns raised from our community members, they should not just be engaging with those who have a financial interest at stake!

Stop Adani and save what little Australia has left. Our land, our water, our wildlife and environment is what makes Australia so amazing. Don’t diminish what’s left and deny our future generations of enjoying the wonders our country currently offers us.

In the words of Mahatma Gandhi: ‘the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members’. Our children are worth investing in for a world that is fit to live in!!!

This is unacceptable behaviour. Your government has had a generation of complacency, so now, faced with the might of students you are too scared to admit that we hold the truth. Instead you abuse your power and authority to shun us to the side and science us simply because we do not fulfil your agenda.

stop Adani at all costs. He is a big crook.
Meet the children they have a lot to say and be scared of.
