The Turnbull Government has voted against a motion in Parliament to keep the ABC Television Network in public hands.
This is on top of the Liberal Federal Council’s vote to support the privatization of the ABC, as well as their refusal to reverse their $83.7 million cut in this year’s budget.
The out of touch Liberals want to dismantle a vital institution in our democracy and silence the independent voice that has spoken to and of our nation for over 85 years.
