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.

The government should be forward thinking in its actions not backwards looking. Coal is an industry of the past that pollutes and is clearly damaging for human life on earth. Australia has the opportunity to be leading the world by example in the uptake of renewable energy and with its climate could easily be 100% renewable.

Please, PLEASE, understand climate change is real. It will impact your children and grandchildren too, it’s time to realise we have to make changes, so they can enjoy the world’s environment that we took for granted. Please.

as an Australian citizen and a child that attends school, I do not agree with Scott Morrison’s claims that children should be in school rather than protesting. At the end of the day, the children will suffer from the greed of the government and the companies behind the coal mines. Why can’t they be alowed to fight for their survival?
