FEDERAL ELECTION 2019
Our ABC is under serious threat. Over the past 5 years the federal government has slashed millions from its budget and undermined its independence.
It's time to act!
Our ABC is under serious threat
Since 2014 the federal government has slashed more than $500m from the ABC's budget. Numerous programs have been lost and staff numbers have fallen by 25%. That's more than 1,000 jobs lost. We can’t afford three more destructive years.
"The ABC is easily Australia’s most trusted media organisation.
Please help us send a message to all political parties: Australians demand a well-funded, strong and independent ABC."
Professor Ed Davis AM,
ABC Friends National Vice President
Imagine no ABC Local in regional Australia.
Imagine an ABC without Four Corners, Playschool, JJJ, ABC drama, Radio National, Classic FM or Media Watch.
Think that's far-fetched? Think again. The ABC has been undermined relentlessly since 2014. Just consider the programs and services that have been slashed.
The ABC is a precious national asset. You can make a real difference.
Election 2019: Vote to save our ABC!
