Because of Government funding cuts, more beloved ABC programs, services and jobs are on the line:2

  • Fewer episodes of Four Corners, Foreign Correspondent and Australian Story
  • Another 250 staff will lose their jobs, including 70 from News Division
  • The flagship 7.45am radio news bulletin will be axed, along with ABC Life, the ABC Comedy Channel, and more...
The good news? Public opinion is on our side. So with enough pressure, we can stop the Government sweeping the issue under the rug and cutting more funding from our ABC.

Can you sign the petition calling on the Government to reverse funding cuts and fully fund our ABC?
