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.

Honorable Prime Minister Morrison,
Honorable Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten,

We need serious climate action. And we need it NOW.
Can you please get on with it at last. Everybody is suffering and things will only get worse. It is high time you be leading people – not running after them. Stop opening new coal mines and stop wasting time blaming each other.

SERIOUS CLIMATE ACTION NOW

Adani will hasten the world’s demise as we know it. There is no Plan B for the planet.

Dear Scott, this issue can’t be ignored anymore. Our kids will inherit an irreversible mess if you don’t stop the fossil fuel industry and make a big investment in renewables.
‘Never before have we had weather like this in recordable history ‘.
Please Scott; a complete ban on CSG, no mining or new mines and make the bastards who’ve left over 40 mines behind without any recompense, go back and make it like it was before!!! Oh wait, it’s too late. People are drinking poisoned water and dying from black lung.
You are the leader now. Put Australia back on the news for all the right reasons. Let us harken in the age of the ‘Super renewable Nation’ leading the world. Ahhh. Sounds awesome.
Thanks Scott,
Lorrain

Greg Chidgey please listen to the kids. Adani absolutely must be STOPPED!

Wake up Morrison and Shorten and literally face our future. It is the sign of a coward not to meet these children and stand up to face their questions regarding your policies that disregard for their future. These children have studied science as the Morrison government has encouraged and they have learnt the damage that your policies do to their future. This is education in action. Meet them for our nations sake, or you leave us now alternative but to view you as cowards and not leaders. Wake up! our youth have
