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.

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.

You both hold the responsibility as leaders of our country to meet with these young constituents who are scared of the bleak future they are facing. You both have children and grandchildren – how can you not want to protect and help them?

If you care about the planet’s future get on board with innovation instead of stagnation and complacency. Climate Change is REAL and Australia has deep obligations.

Australia’s students are more educated about climate change than most politicians seem to be. They have at least listened to what the world’s scientists have said, and believed it. It is politicians who need to be in school on this issue.
96% of NSW drought declared, Sydney’s water supply already down below 50% and no end to the drought predicted throughout summer, coal mines still being approved, even when they threaten water catchments, land clearing out of control – and Australian politicians haven’t yet ackowledged that we are in a climate emergency. The kids know!

Stand on the right side of history. Respect the science and the only Earth we have. Meet the kids. We’re running out of time and climate change won’t offer politicians any exceptions.
