I love ABC was originally started by the CPSU as a feel-good community campaign to show the Government the strong support there is for the ABC in the community.
The CPSU represents thousands of dedicated and concerned ABC workers who know how much the ABC can do for Australia, and who are deeply worried about the impact cuts are having on ABC programs and services. Together with these brave and committed team members and other groups, we organised rallies, events and put the media spotlight on the calls to restore ABC funding.
Between 2014 and 2019, the Government announced ABC cuts totaling $631 million dollars and more than one thousand ABC staff have lost their jobs. Throughout we have sustained pressure and continued working to stop these cuts and to promote the critical role our much-loved national broadcaster plays in our democracy.
Today, more than ever before, we need every ABC worker and every Australian who listens to, reads or watches the ABC, in remote and regional Australia and capital cities, to come together to protect our national broadcaster – the ABC will not survive more cuts to its funding.
We’re calling for donations and volunteers to help raise awareness so we can build the strongest most powerful ABC campaign this country has ever seen.
Together we can stop further cuts and ensure our ABC continues to thrive for the benefit of all Australians and future generations.
