Thanks to everyone who supported Senator Kristina Keneally’s effort to get a specific Inquiry into Australian Press Freedom.
Unfortunately, the Government instead has asked the Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security to consider how well Australian Press Freedom is protected.
ABC Friends is sceptical about the capacity and willingness of this particular committee to fully assess the critical role of media freedom in our democracy but, nevertheless, it is important that concerned citizens put forward their opinions.
What you can do next:
Submissions can be sent to:
Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security
P.O Box 6021
Or by email
Submissions must be received by July 26
Your opinions matter so do write to this committee!
