Amid Federal Budget cuts of a further $83.7 million in funding to the ABC, and in the wake of the Liberal Party Federal Council vote, CPSU and MEAA are joining with Friends of the ABC to hold public protest rallies in defence of the ABC.
The latest cut comes on top of $254 million in funding cuts under the Coalition Governments in the past five years - a loss of 23% of base funding in real terms, resulting in 939 redundancies since 2014.
To date, more than 9000 people have emailed Communications Minister Mitch Fifield to protest.
