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.

Very disappointed in Bill Shorten and his office. Great way to show respect to our young people – not. Shame on you.

It is not only your world, you must listen to the voices of the future and stop wrecking this planet for them.

Have the courage to do this. Leave this world in a better place than it is, for the sake of my grandchildren.

I expected that of Morrison – he’s a pod person, but not of Shorten. So disappointing. Tired of voting for the lesser of 2 evils!

Scomo and Bill,
You both need to meet the kids, and do them the courtsey of listening to their concerns.

This is ridiculous. QLD is on fire yet this bulldust gets approved. Meet the kids and stop the intergenerational theft.

It is a disgrace that we are allowing this to happen. There is no solid evidence to show any benefit to our country. The Adani family are just lining their own pockets.
