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.

Please listen to the school children who have something important to say to you today.

They may not have a vote but it is they that will inherit the earth and it is history that will judge governments who failed to act.

A swift transition to renewable energy and jobs of the future is just the start of what is needed.

We are at the precipice of environmental disaster. The kids are right to be fearful of the future. The point of no return may already have passed.

The kids are the future of Australia, you need to listen to them. Us older folk will be long gone and we won’t see the mess that we have left for our Chrildren & Grandchildren.
