Emeritus Professor Ed Davis
NSW President & National Vice President, ABC Friends, will explore why we need to defend & maintain strong, independent public broadcasting.


Northern Suburbs of Sydney (NSOS) locals protested against the Australian Federal Police (AFP) raids of ABC Offices and a journalist’s home, outside Federal Communications Minister and Federal MP for Bradfield Mr Paul Fletcher’s Lindfield Office on 11 June, 2019.

Over 60 NSOS of Sydney locals expressed their concern with speeches, placards and petitions.

Following the protest a formal letter was delivered to MP Paul Fletcher’s office condemning the attack on media freedom, so essential for a strong democracy.

NSOS residents believe it is time that they form a Friends of ABC branch.

Like all Australians, they love their ABC.

NSOS covers the suburbs of Hornsby, Northern Beaches, Ku-ring-gai, Ryde, Willoughby, Hunters Hill, Lane Cove, Mosman, and North Sydney.
