Your message, loud and clear

to me

Last year, when Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi launched an attack on our ABC, calling it a “taxpayer-funded behemoth” and suggesting the Government “cut the ABC budget”, GetUp members responded in full force. Since the campaign began, more than 219,000 people have signed the petition to defend our ABC – even Play School’s very own Benita added her voice to the campaign!

Our message is loud and clear: Australians want our ABC to remain free, fair and independent.

More than 12,000 GetUp members chipped in to display this billboard right in the heart of Prime Minister Abbott’s electorate, where he – and thousands of the voters he answers to – will drive past and see our message in big, bold letters:

But we’re not home yet. In the lead up to budget time, when cabinet are deciding whether or not to cut funding to the ABC, you can be sure we’ll keep making noise. Let’s make certain Prime Minister Abbott and the government are fully aware of just how unpopular this decision would be.

GetUp members like you have already made it possible to lock in a second billboard in Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull’s electorate – and soon, local leaders will take our message to letterboxes in their local neighbourhoods, making sure as many people as possible hear our message. There’s still time to chip in to help fund these exciting next steps in this campaign, if you haven’t already.

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting campaign soon. In the meantime, keep up the great work!
