Save our ABC petition

The ABC is under the biggest attack in its history.

The Coalition Government has already cut more than $250m from the ABC’s budget – now they’re cutting a further $84 million.

The ABC provides a vital service across the country, it is where we turn when there is a disaster, emergency or bushfire.

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

The ABC needs allies, now more than ever.

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.
