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.

They are the future and will be reaping what you sow. You will be dead when it all happens, they won’t be. You are there to represent the people. Do so.

The politicians who take no action to protect the future and this critical time in human history will be remembered with disgust and disbelief. Stop this madness now. No one wants this mine!!!

Anyone helping Adani open a coal mine must have rocks for brains or fossilised brains! Coal should stay in the ground. Listen to our children for they will inherit our disasters. And coal is one of the biggest ! Thank God for young , clever brains!

I want a future. Kids are told to take action, to be responsible for what we do and yet the people we ‘choose’ to run our country refuse to listen. Whilst they hide away and tell us to return to school, maybe it’s time for the government to become educated because by refusing to heed the warnings and protests of the younger generation they are risking our futures. Why become educated when we won’t even have a future to look forward to

Climate change needs to be addressed Now. it is already irresponsible that the situation is already as it is given that we knew 30yrs ago what the effects of climate change would be. our children have a right to be angry about the world they are inheriting that is and will increasingly be in chaos due to ignoring environmental health. and putting greed over the wellbeing of our younger generations and the planet we live on.

As a once proud Australian I am ashamed and shocked that local, state and federal governments repeatedly ignore the wishes and needs of the people who have elected them.
I cannot understand why this mine is still going through. As a country who likes to say the we are responsible global citizens, our governments are not paying any attention to the needs of our planet.

Oi! Who do you think you are? While the KIDS are making a good action there you are hiding in your little thrown. SHAME ON YOU! If you think you’re doing the right thing even in the first place it NEVER was, face the kids. The kids has more guts to face you than yourself. Meet them if you’re not that coward. Such a simple thing to do yet you can’t do it. Face them then let’s see what right and positive you can bring to this nation.
