JOIN US FOR OUR
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2017

ABC PERTH CENTRE
CNR ROYAL & FIELDER STREETS, EAST PERTH
OUR SPECIAL GUEST IS
ABC FRIENDS NATIONAL
Margaret Reynolds has been pivotal in establishing ABC Friends as a national organisation, and her parliamentary experience, knowledge and contacts have been invaluable in our efforts to influence members of Parliament of all political persuasions to support a properly funded and independent ABC.
Margaret was elected as a federal Labor senator for Queensland in 1983. Four years later she became the Minister for Local Government and, in 1988, the Minister assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women. She was appointed to the Aboriginal Reconciliation Council and was directly involved in developing native title legislation following the Mabo decision. She remained in Parliament until 1999.
Margaret is the author of two books, The Last Bastion, Labor women working towards equality in the parliaments of Australia (publ. 1995), and Living Politics (publ. 2007).
ABC Friends WA is joining with ABC unions CPSU and MEAA to spread awareness across the community of the severe cuts about to hit the ABC.
at Perth Town Hall on
Thursday 20th. November
any time between 11am and 2pm
You will be able to grab a ‘Stop ABC Cuts’ t-shirt and badge, sign a petition, fill in a postcard to the Prime Minister (we will post it), write down your thoughts and comments about the ABC to be added to others from all around Australia, spread via social media and passed on to where they will have most effect.
Volunteers to hand out postcards and flyers along the Hay Street and Murray Street malls are very welcome. A half-hour (or more) of your time would be appreciated. Register at firstname.lastname@example.org – or just come along.
