Join with the MEAA and CPSU – stand up for the ABC today

Follow this link to send an email to your senators and members telling them to stand up for the ABC.

Hands Off Our ABC is a community and advocacy campaign co-ordinated by the two unions that represent the vast bulk of employees at the ABC: the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance and the Community and Public Sector Union.

Our goal is an editorially-independent ABC that is fully-funded by the government and meets its charter as a comprehensive national broadcaster,  that is resourced to tell Australian stories across multiple platforms, and positioned to take advantage of new technology to retain its position as the most trusted and reliable source of news and entertainment in Australia.

FABC gearing up for an election

FABC are calling all of Auntie’s supporters to help us out in the lead-up to the federal election.  After historic cuts to the ABC that have seen more than a thousand years’ worth of public broadcasting experience forcibly let go, we need you help now more than ever.

If you can help out running an information stall, distributing flyers in your neighbourhood or attending events, please let us know.  A change of Prime Minister has not seen a change in this government’s dangerous attacks on the ABC which plays an irreplaceable role in our nation’s identity and culture.

Please like our new Facebook page to keep up to date on our campaigns.

To help out or for more information, email – kookaburrapa@gmail.com
