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.

Australia needs to do more about the climate emergency we face. Denying it, is killing our children’s future.

Please meet the kids whose future will be most affected by the ongoing burning of fossil fuel.

All I hear is silence from our elected officials about the climate strike! This is beyond saddening

You don’t need to be young to understand that working together to save the earth we stand on is detrimental to our survival. Our politicians need to wake up and be proactive. It’s about doing the right thing for everyone and not just the right thing for their political interests

I am disgusted with the lack of leadership in this country. Obviously the fossil fuel industry lobbiests are still controlling
government. Australia is become less democractic. The “COALition” should serve its citizens not the fossil fuel industry.

The fact that someone brings a lump of coal into question time and is still considered a serious political figure is ridiculous. The labour party made leaps and bounds in our climate policy and Scott and his goons seem to want to do nothing but beat the earth into the ground.
