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.

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.

Meet the children they have a lot to say and be scared of.

Stop giving Adani money and stop Adani Mine from proceeding or we will end up with a huge hole in the ground, The Great Barrier Reef destroyed, our wetlands stuffed, the Great Artesian Water Basin depleted and polluted and our government out of pocket by billions of dollars.

This mine must be stopped – it is a ridiculous idealogically driven stance which makes no economic, environmental or social sense.

The Australian Government should implement laws and policies that reduce the Greenhouse Effect of our industry and society. They should be supporting renewable energy and opposing any new Coal Mines. Also, If we allow the Adani Carmichael Coal Mine to proceed we will end up with a huge hole in the ground, The Great Barrier Reef destroyed, our wetlands stuffed, the Great Artesian Water Basin depleted and polluted and our government out of pocket by billions of dollars. I urge the Australian Government to see common sense and robustly oppose Adani’s disastrous mine, and any other Coal mine in the Galilee Basin in Central Queensland or anywhere else in Australia.

Take the kids seriously and STOP ADANI!
