Stop Kyle Sandilands appearing on Channel 7 show Australia's Got Talent

Would a teacher guilty of indecency towards a student be allowed to keep working with children?


Would it be enough if a child molester apologised?


If you answered 'no' to the questions above, you would also say 'no' to Kyle Sandilands appearing on the National TV after he was found to have breached the code of conduct by offending against “generally accepted standards of decency”(27 March 2012, ACMA).


Why is it important to say 'no'?


Australia’s mass media has enormous influence on the population and especially on the Australian adolescents and their perceptions of themselves.


I believe Australian youth deserves better role models.

I believe that letting Sandilands 'off the hook' sets a poor example of being unaccountable for one's actions.

I believe that rewarding bad behaviour is wrong.


I'm calling on Kerry Stokes, the Chairman of Channel 7, to implement a ban for any person found guilty of indecency on air. It would send a clear message that Channel 7 is serious and responsible about stopping derogatory and offensive comments in the media.

      We need to step up with our efforts. I am writing personal emails to my friends who are not on FB. Below is a link which explains the story if we are to ask for support from outside of OZ.

      because someone who speaks about and to women the way this man does is not worthy of the privilege of being in a public position on television (or of being paid $1.5 million!!)

      If he spoke to a female police officer the same way he did to that female reporter, would he have gotten away with it?

      While Kyle's opinion continues to be valued, we as woman are clearly not.
