Protect the ABC

Brett Whiteley cut $254 million from the ABC in the horror 2014 budget and will cut a further $84 million if he returns to Parliament. 800 ABC jobs have been lost since 2014, including 19 in Tasmania.

At Senate Estimates, the ABC could not guarantee North and North-West Tasmania would be spared from Malcolm Turnbull and Brett Whiteley’s cuts to our ABC.

They're giving big business and the banks an $80 billion tax handout while cutting money to schools, hospitals, TAFE and now the ABC.

We need your help to stop these cuts and make sure North and North-West Tasmania gets a fair go.

Sign our petition today to show Malcolm Turnbull and Brett Whiteley they must immediately reverse their cuts to the ABC, and guarantee vital services to North and North-West Tasmania.
