ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

There is therefore no need to sign the petition, although, if you are new to the Australian Monarchist League, please consider signing up to receive our updates.

The Queen's Message can be viewed here.


Other than at Christmas, the Queen has made few televised addresses but she is to make an address to the Commonwealth tomorrow, Sunday 5 April 2020.

However,our understanding is that the ABC is purposefully not broadcasting the message. We call on all monarchists to sign this online petition calling on the public broadcaster to air the message from the Queen of Australia to her people.

I call on the Australian Broadcasting Authority to broadcast the message from the Queen which is to be released on Sunday 5 April, 2020.

    Her Majesty The Queen is the head of state of Commonwealth of Australia. So Every citizen of Australia is entitled to listen to the message of thier Queen. In this time of Covid-19 emergency, Her Majesty’s message can provide us with hope and strength to stand united not only for our countrymen but for humanity at large. So I urge ABC to broadcast the message of Her Majesty, as this is the time to pursue unity under the Head of State.

    We all pay for our national broadcaster. It is our right for our national broadcaster to give us access to The Queen of Australia when she broadcasts to her subjects. Broadcaster for All of the people not just some. You are a disgrace ABC.
