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.

Meet the kids. It’s their lives and futures we’re gambling with. Don’t Morrison and Shorten have their own children, let alone all the families who’ll be effected. We can’t afford to gamble with everyone’s future.

Yet again, here we are fighting corporate greed to protect of our beautiful planet and ensure there is anything left for our future generations. Can you look these children in the eye and tell them that your pay out is worth it?

Children are far more astute and perceptive than many adults give them credit for. They ARE our future and they care deeply about the world and all that live in it. THE WORLD HAS ENOUGH COAL and it’s time to stop destroying the health of the planet (i.e., you, me, the rest of the biosphere) for such short-term “benefits”. Don’t make the same mistakes as the U.S.’s present misguided leader!! Meet w/ the kids and PLEASE LISTEN TO THEM!!
