The school strike is backed by NSW Labor leader, Michael Daley: Daley tells kids its OK to skip school
Now it has been revealed that the School strike was organised by Getup! and the Greens.
“Kids’ climate ‘strike’ organised by adults”
The primary backer of the student walkout called ‘School Strike 4 Climate Action’ is the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), a non-profit company registered as a charity with an all-adult board and 68 adult staff. The AYCC was set up by Anna Rose, wife of former GetUp national director and Greens candidate Simon Sheikh. Sheikh was listed in the AYCC’s 2013 constitution as one of its 16 full members, along with Ms Rose, with voting rights to elect the group’s board.
The contact number for inquiries about the strike by ‘children aged 5-18’ is the AYCC.
Finance Minister Mathias Cormann says adult climate activists are using children as pawns for their own purposes by encouraging them to leave school to attend today’s ‘strike’.
‘I think that most Australians would take a very cynical view of professional adult activists using and abusing kids for this purpose, for their purpose during school time. During school time kids should be at school. They should not be used as pawns by professional adult activists as part of a cynical political strategy’.
Australian Conservatives Party leader Cory Bernardi told Paul Murray Live on Sky News the climate alarmists keep on trotting out the same old nonsense and false predictions.
