Triple J: Change the date of the Hottest 100!
This petition made change with 5,218 supporters!
‘Australia Day’ represents, for First Nations’ Peoples, a date commemorating the invasion of their countries and colonization of their ways of life, rather than a celebration of what it now means to be ‘Australian’.
We recognize that it isn’t within the power of Triple J to change this date; however, it is capable of using their broadcast to make a statement of solidarity with the experience of those whose countries were colonized. The ABC has a long history of excellent broadcasting with a focus on diversity, and Triple J is no exception. By changing the date of the Hottest 100 Countdown, Triple J can send a message to First Nations’ Peoples that they, and their experiences, are valued and respected by other Australians.
We are calling on content director Ollie Wards, along with the ABC, to spearhead this campaign to have Triple J change the date of the Hottest 100 Countdown from ‘Australia Day’ to a less inflammatory and more inclusive date for First Nations’ Peoples.
