Before the election the Liberals promised hand on heart there will be “no cuts to the ABC”. Since that lie, Malcolm Turnbull (as the minister responsible, and now as PM), has cut more than $504 million from the ABC and SBS. Mr Turnbull and the government have gone even further and announced another $254 million worth of cuts to the ABC, a further $54 million cut to SBS and the sacking of up to 500 people.
We need to show them that Australians do not want the Turnbull Liberal-Nationals to cut the ABC’s budget.
I urge you to sign and tell Malcolm Turnbull: hands off our ABC.
