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.

For decades I (now aged 69) have written submissions, letters, pleas and attended protests, as a result of the warnings of TRUSTED scientists and biologists world-wide. In the 1970s my husband and I had two children. Our son is now 43 and lives in VIC. He has two daughters one aged 8 and the other 4. He has seen us (his parents) struggle to initiate action on the increasingly desperate state of our world climate and biodiversity. Our daughter (40) chose NOT to have children and has lived her life according to her perception of the cynicism and serve-serving of both politicians in both TAS and Federally fed by their “mates” in cynicism and serve-serving businesses – investment banks, industrial forestry, coal and oil “mining” and burning, industrial scale aquatic distruction. We KNOW we are right, yet year has followed year, and now ALSO threatens our two grandchildren. They will soon be old enough to STRIKE but in the meantime my husband and I and our adult children will continue to VOTE the LIBERAL COALITION out of office. We have NEARLY succeeded. We need a LABORCOALITION” to ensure there is a future for all of today’s 4 and 8 year olds. That is now the ONLY chance our grandchildren have so YOU WILL BE DEFEATED.

Time to stop adding to climate damage. Do we have to get the children to demonstrate before the so called adults will be moved to act? STOP CLIMATE DAMAGE NOW.

I stood with the children as they protested and helped them to keep their chant in time. Then I attended the rally on Saturday at the state library. No new coal! 100% renewable #repower #stopadani
