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.

What is it going to take for our supposed ‘leaders’ to listen because they haven’t listened to the experts (including their own)… too many corporate/fossil fuel companies with too many fingers in the Australian taxpayers pie.

The “kids” are going to have to deal with the mess that previous generations have left them with.
These “kids” are intelligent, articulate, passionate, motivated, educated individuals open to discussion and problem solving.
It’s time our politicians stepped UP to the level of these “kids”.

It’s important to accept and promote (with action), a strong interest in environmental issues, given that with the current population growth on the planet, humans 2-3 generations from now would be gasping for breath if we keep being stubborn long necked birds who actually are hugely better than the reputation given by us. We’re the ones with head up …. not just in the sand.
