Stop the Coalition from getting rid of Our ABC
Even more concerning, Pauline Hanson is mounting a hostile parliamentary review of the ABC and SBS, designed to interfere with their charters and editorial content.
It’s a dream come true for Rupert Murdoch and the Conservative think tanks who’ve been fighting for years to cut, gut and destroy our ABC.
We have to fight back.
Fortunately, the ABC is one of the most liked and respected organisations in Australia
Here’s just a small sample of what may never have come to light without our ABC:
- The horrors of the live export trade, sparking a huge campaign8
- Institutional child abuse in Don Dale detention centre, which lead to a Royal Commission
These new cuts are clear political payback for the ABC’s honest reporting on the Government’s corporate tax cuts and for daring to describe Tony Abbott as ‘destructive’ on climate change
If they go through, it could have a chilling effect on ABC reporting on our elected leaders.
It’s not just the fate of our ABC that’s at stake, but also the right of all Australians to hold the government of the day to account.
An attack on our ABC is an attack on democracy…
