Stop Gina's mining media

To Minister Conroy:

We urge you to legislate to stop media moguls like Gina Rinehart and Rupert Murdoch from killing our independent media. Only strict ownership limits, a ‘fit and proper person test’ for the use of public airwaves, and a strong and independent regulator can ensure that free speech and democracy are safeguarded for all Australians.

Mining magnate Gina Rinehart has just bought a major stake in Fairfax media -- in a bid that could turn The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald into mouthpieces for climate denial to protect her mining interests. But together we can foil her plan.

Rinehart has already bought Channel Ten’s agenda -- and Australia’s ownership restrictions need urgent reform to end her latest assault on Fairfax. The media inquiry that Avaaz members helped win is just weeks away from reporting, and provides the government with the crucial chance to act. Communications Minister Stephen Conroy is supportive of stronger ownership limits -- but he needs a community outcry to get the whole government on board.

Sign the petition to Minister Conroy now to ensure a mogul-free Australian media. When the petition reaches 50,000 signatures, we’ll spectacularly deliver the massive message in Canberra.
