Erin, Alycia, Kelsey and the GetUp team are organising a rally tomorrow to persuade the powers that be that the ABC and SBS need all the help they can get. As a friend of mine said, Australia will be a sorry place if there are only commercial channels, plus he would be unemployed.
Get involved at the rally tomorrow – details below
See you there
With just two weeks until the budget is handed down, media reports suggest funding for the ABC is on the chopping block. Now’s our last chance to speak out and stand up against the cuts – will you join us in Sydney on Saturday for snap action in support of the ABC?
It’ll be a fun and family-friendly event where you’ll hear great speakers, share a message that we’ll take to our leaders in Canberra on budget day, and maybe even meet the Bananas themselves. Here’s how:
What: Snap action in support of protecting the ABC, featuring great speakers including Jonathan Holmes, Tom Ballard, Sam Mclean and Wendy Harmer
Where: Martin Place, Sydney CBD
When: 11am, Saturday 3 May 2014
Bring: Your friends and family!
Once you RSVP, we’ll send you a reminder of all the details via email.
The campaign to protect the ABC is about more than just protecting a public broadcaster, it’s about protecting:
- Fair and accurate news and current affairs
- Quality children’s programming that’s free of advertising
- Up-to-date information for Australians living in rural areas in times of emergency
- The iconic and original Australian TV shows, which we’ve come to know and love
