This is a petition of residents across the electoral division of Warringah to bring greater attention to the attack on the ABC by the Liberals, Nationals and One Nation – and to show their commitment to save the ABC from funding cuts and privatisation.
Our most trusted and valued national broadcaster is under threat. This year alone, the Government has cut $83.7 million in ABC funding, launched two damaging public broadcasting inquiries, and brought three bills before Parliament to meddle with the ABC Charter. The Federal Council of the Liberal Party has passed a motion to privatise the ABC.
The undersigned petitioners endorse the commitment of a Shorten Labor Government to reverse Malcolm Turnbull’s $83.7 million cut to the ABC, and Labor’s commitment to never privatise the ABC.
Let’s do better for our ABC.
