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.

As soon as I found out Adani; even with all the overwhelming opposition to this mine, is going ahead 100% self funded, because they frankly don’t give a f*** about anyone except lining the pockets of themselves and their allies – that was enough for my contribution to this petition. This temporary ‘fix’ for Adani is permanently catastrophic. This has to be stopped.

Pollies, put your greed aside for a few minutes and listen to these kids. You are 100% responsible and liable for their futures whether you like it or not.

The earth will be inherited by our children They have more rights than any-one else to object to the mess we are leaving them.

Climate change is real whether you want to believe it or not. How selfish and arrogant you are if you can’t take the time to look at the research and admit that it is happening. It’s our children who will be faced with the real problems and we are doing nothing to stop it? Wow.

This is completely despicable, I am appalled & disgusted. I cannot believe that the Australian PM and other parties are for this. The young/old people who are actively seeking a brighter future for this country and world are being swept under the rug for financial gain, scott and bill are directly helping to seal the fate of the planet. this shit is fucked

Our politicians need to think long term and stop thinking about the short term benefits. The money gained from this will be meaningless when the planet becomes a barren wasteland.
