This election: save our ABC!
As beloved ABC broadcaster Quentin Dempster said yesterday, ‘the ABC has never been under greater threat.
The Institute of Public Affairs, backed by Rupert Murdoch and bankrolled by mining magnate Gina Rinehart, wants the ABC destroyed through privatisation. The Federal Council of the Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly for a resolution to do so.
Successive budget cuts by the Coalition Government decimated ABC programming, including Lateline and state-based current affairs. ABC's Australia Network, our voice to our Asia Pacific neighbours, was dismantled at the insistence of Murdoch's News Corp.’
Please join us as we remind candidates in the upcoming election about the importance of protecting our ABC.
