Save our ABC!
The ABC is there for us, in and out of crisis. It keeps us safe, connected, and informed. It helps us make sense of the world around us.
But $783 million in Coalition Government cuts is taking it's toll.1
And with an alarming increase in public attacks against our public broadcaster – from the Murdoch Press and Morrison Government – it's up to all of us to publicly support our ABC.
We need to call out these attacks for what they are, a blatant attempt to silence it's journalism. If enough of us sign this petition we'll show Morrison he can't get away with interfering in an institution built to keep our communities safe, connected, and informed.
Can you sign the more than 150,000 strong petition demanding the Government fully fund our ABC?
But we all know it's a lie. And we're ready to counter it.
Sign the petition now!
- Fewer episodes of Four Corners, Foreign Correspondent and Australian Story
- Thousands of jobs lost, including another 250 staff from the News Division in 2020 alone
- The flagship 7.45am radio news bulletin axed, along with ABC Life, the ABC Comedy Channel, and more...
The good news? Public opinion is on our side, with the vast majority of Ausralians opposing budget cuts.4
We know that if all those people joined the movement, the Coalition Government would be unable to sweep the issue under the rug and further cuts would become politically untenable.
So can you sign on to demand the Government reverse funding cuts and fully fund our ABC?
