UPDATE*** Thanks to your quick action, all four Senate crossbenchers have publicly declared that they will not support the Coalitions three anti-ABC Bills.

This commitment is a small but significant win in our campaign to protect our ABC, and it was your action that got us over the line.

However, serious threats to the ABC’s independence and funding remain.

Possibly in anticipation of a bruising defeat, the Coalition has withdrawn all three ABC Bills from today’s Senate listing. Unfortunately, this is not an indication that the Coalition has given up on pushing their anti-ABC agenda, it's likely that these bills will resurface at a later date.

Adding to that, the Coalition’s additional ABC funding cut of $83M, it’s Competitive Neutrality inquiry, and it’s second ABC efficiency review headed by an ex-NewsCorp Executive, are all still on the table.

This Thursday the Senate will be voting on three ABC bills. All three bills are intended to undermine the ABC’s independence.

These bills are the result of the Coalition’s dirty deal with One Nation. They come on top of new funding cuts to the ABC announced by the Coalition in May ($83m) and all three bills are designed and intended to undermine the ABCs independence and hobble it.

The fate of the ABC and these Bills are in the hands of just four Senate Crossbenchers – Rex Patrick and Griff Stirling from Centre Alliance and independents Tim Storer and Deryn Hinch.

We need you to send an email to these crossbenchers and ask them to reject these bills.
