Hands off our ABC

The ABC is an integral part of Australian life.

Our national broadcaster is there for us during fire and flood, there for our children, there for our artists and musicians - we need to be there for aunty now.

The conservative attacks on our ABC are getting louder everyday. It is in our national interest to have a independent broadcaster free of commercial interests.

The night before the 2013 Federal Election Tony Abbott said that there will be “no cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no change to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS

After the election there has been strong criticism of our national broadcaster from shock-jocks, the Murdoch Press and a disturbing attack from the Prime Minister. 

We demand that Tony Abbott  keep his election promise of no cuts to the ABC. We would like to see the independence of this beloved institution maintained and we do not want to see advertisements on our broadcaster.
