The ABC is under the biggest attack in its history

10 years of ‘death by 1000 cuts’

The previous Liberal Government couldn’t handle the public broadcaster doing its job and holding those in power to account.

The ABC has been a vital source of information during the pandemic and helped save lives during the catastrophic summer bushfires immediately before that.

To do its job as the public expects, to continue producing the news Australians trust and the stories we love, the ABC must be well-funded.

This means reversing the millions of dollars of funding Morrison Government cut from the ABC year on year.

The ABC needs allies, now more than ever, and we will push Labor to honor their commitments to properly fund our public broadcaster, including advocating our position for legislated 5 year funding cycles.

Will you join our campaign to restore funding certainty to our precious ABC?

To all members and Senators of Parliament

I have added my name to this petition because I value the ABC too highly to sit back and do nothing while our national broadcaster is under assault.

The ABC is one of the most trusted institutions in the country.

I let my children use the ABC Kids app because I trust it. I read, watch and listen to the ABC News because I trust it. I tune in to the ABC in times of natural disaster because I trust it.

We need it more than ever.

I call on you to oppose any cuts to the ABC’s funding.

I call on you to oppose any changes to the ABC’s charter.

I call on you to oppose any attack on the ABC’s independence.

Long after you’ve left the Parliament, I want the ABC to still be there.

I am calling on you to make sure of it.

Yours sincerely
