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.

Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten,

It’s these kids’ future we’re talking about. You and I will be dead when the real consequences of climate inaction kick in. So go and talk to them — and listen.

It’s time to pay attention to the ones who are going to have to live with the consequences of our inaction!

If this protest is carried out in INDIA, the people who go against this fellow Adani, he would have bribed thugs and organised to harm them.

The damage that Adani will reap on our country if we let the Carmichael Mine go ahead is shameful and not worth the money that would be made from it. To put profits over the health of our land is reprehensible.

Time to get your heads out of the sand, Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten, and listen to the kids. This isn’t about either of you or your political ambitions. It’s about ensuring these kids and their kids have fresh air to breathe, clean water to drink and food security into the future. Not to mention the survival of every species on the planet. Remember: you cannot breathe, eat or drink money.

People over profit! We can’t allow for this archaic way of fueling enconomies and filling pockets to outstrip our need to protect not only our environment, but our future. What’s the point of economic safety when there’s no water to drink and no people to protect!

Politicians need to meet and speak to the kids. The politicians are suppose to be there for the people not for the unconscious corporations and their selfish unconscious profits. ` When the last tree is felled and the rivers polluted, man (sic) will realise they cannot eat their money ’!
