EMAIL SUBJECT: No Ads on SBS sign petition please

Dear [NAME] of [EMAIL],

Following the recent No Ads on SBS or ABC email-campaign in the lead-up to the 2007 federal election, many people have asked Save Our SBS about our other campaign.

What’s happened to the No Ads on SBS petition that commenced many months ago?

The No Ads on SBS petition, is about to close. Soon it will be presented to the new Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy.

Our records show that previously you expressed an interest in seeing SBS fully funded by government and without advertisements. However you never fully completed the process from your email address above so we are sending you this email as a last attempt and hope that you will sign the No Ads on SBS petition, before it is presented to the Minister. (If you did sign using a different email address from that above, there is no need to sign again. Thankyou).

Our public multicultural broadcaster is still under threat and your support is needed now so SBS can once again be properly funded and not reliant on advertising.

The purpose of this email is to urge you to act now and sign the No Ads on SBS petition. You can do this by clicking here.

Let’s insist that SBS be non-commercial and that high quality, multicultural and ethnic programming, can once again be the norm at SBS. Don’t let SBS be sold out to commercialism!

Essentially the petition asks for the Minister to require that:-

1) The SBS Board cease disrupting all programs for advertisements.

And protect the integrity and independence of SBS from government and commercial influence by:-

2) Amending the SBS Act to prohibit advertising and sponsorship on SBS;

3) Fully funding SBS so it is not dependent on commercial revenue nor supplementation from advertising; and,

4) Introducing a new system of appointments to the SBS Board that will result in Board members being appointed on the basis of merit with a strong commitment to multiculturalism and SBS independence, and, that the Board is independent from the government of the day and commercial influence.

The full wording of the petition is available here.

Please sign the No Ads on SBS petition now, before it closes.

Thank you for your ongoing support for public broadcasting.

About Save Our SBS (www.SaveOurSBS.org)

Save Our SBS is a not for profit community organisation. We are not aligned with or beholden to any political party or any such group. We care passionately about public broadcasting and SBS in particular and were formed as a direct result of SBS interrupting programs for advertisements. We are very concerned about the direction that SBS is heading and the commercialisation of SBS.

We operate at a ‘grass roots’ level. No-one is paid and everyone is a volunteer. Our operation depends entirely on the support of active participants.
