A request to meet with Prime Minister Scott Morrison
Dear Mr Prime Minister Morrison,
My name is Portia Solari. I am 17 years old and live in Cronulla, in your electorate.
I am joining hundreds of kids around the country this week to send a message to you as the leader of our country to please take our futures seriously.
Climate change is a crisis and it’s already hurting people in Australia and other people around the world. It will only get worse if you don’t take urgent action to make it better.
Otherwise me and other kids will not have as good a chance as you did to have a good life.
We are striking from school to show how serious we are.
We are willing to risk our education because this problem is so important to us, and we don’t understand what the point of learning facts at school is if politicians keep ignoring them.
Please will you meet with us and at least hear what we have to say?
I can meet you in your office in our community with some of my friends?
And other kids will be at Parliament House this Wednesday —can you meet with them and hear what they have to say?
We need to know that you are serious about protecting our futures or what hope do we have?
