Why is this important?
Last week, the Liberal Party executive voted to sell off our ABC. Malcolm Turnbull's government has already cut more than $250 million from the ABC.
The public statements against a sell-off by members of the government have been encouraging, but we know that the far-right dinosaurs on the backbench hold powerful sway over Malcolm Turnbull.
We have to send a strong message to the government that Australians want to see the ABC protected.
A public broadcaster is vital to a functioning, transparent democracy. We need a media outlet that doesn’t cosy up to the government, but that criticises it. That criticises every political party - from the Greens, to Katter Australia, to One Nation.
Let's show the government that Australians won't allow our public broadcaster to be privatised, sign our petition today.
