Our politicians have forgotten how important our ABC is to us. Constant funding cuts are placing the very existence of our ABC at risk. While the ABC is trying valiantly to deliver services to metro, regional and local communities, it is continually being forced to cut back further.
By the time we go to the polls on July 2, the ABC will have lost more than $100 million in funding a year!
Forced funding cuts have cost 500 jobs and, with the further $48 million reduction listed in the May budget, this will certainly affect the quality and range of programming the ABC can offer in news coverage and other areas including drama and children's, as well as mobile and online.
The time has come. Help us tell our politicians we care about the future of our ABC. Because if we are not careful, we run the risk of losing it at some point forever.
The petition will be sent to key political figures so that they know that we care about our ABC and its future.
Please sign this petition to show your support. It’s as simple as ABC.
