Hands off our ABC

Just last night, it became apparent that no part of the ABC is safe from Liberal cuts.

In front of a Senate Estimates hearing, ABC Managing Director Mark Scott could not guarantee that any part of the ABC will be immune from Liberal cuts.

The ABC provides vital services to all Australians - city and country and any cuts by Tony Abbott to the ABC will hurt all communities - particularly those in regional areas which rely on ABC Regional Radio for news and public service announcements.

Before the election, Tony Abbott promised "No cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no change to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS."

If the Liberals cut funding to the ABC, Tony Abbott will have broken 3 of those 5 promises in just 6 months. 

We need your help to stand up to these cuts. Sign our petition here to show your support for the vital services the ABC provides to Australians.
