THE QUEEN'S VE DAY MESSAGE

THE QUEEN'S VE DAY MESSAGE

NOW CLOSED



The ABC responded and aired the Queen's VE Day Message several times during the day. Hopefully petitions, such as this one, have enabled us to establish a better relationship with the ABC for future occasions. You can see the Queen's Message, together with others, on this website here.

Calling upon the ABC & the SBS
to broadcast the Queen’s VE Day message
Friday 8 May 2019 at 9 pm (6 am AEST on 9/5/20)

 

PRINCESS ELIZABETH, QUEEN ELIZABETH, WINSTON CHURCHILL, KING GEORGE VI AND PRINCESS MARGARET
ON THE BALCONY OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE ON VE DAY

 

The Queen is to deliver another rare broadcast on this Friday 8 May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. However, it appears that no Australian television channel is to broadcast the speech in full. They probably assume it is only for Britain and do not take into account that several hundred thousand Australians volunteered and fought, with many killed, in Europe against the then aggressors. Accordingly, whilst the war in the East continued until August of 1945, VE Day also belongs to Australia.

VE Day, is therefore not just a British battle but one involving many nations around the Commonwealth, all fighting for the freedoms that became our cherished right under our respective constitutions.

Please therefore sign the petition below specifically calling upon the taxpayer funded media - being the ABC & SBS - to broadcast and publish the Queen’s VE Day address in full. It will be helpful if you could share the link of this very important petition on your social media.

You should note that unless you tick the box at the end of the form, your name will be published as a signatory to this petition.


We, the undersigned call upon the ABC and SBS to broadcast the Queen’s VE Day message in full.

    It should be mandatory for the taxpayer funded ABC and SBS to broadcast the Queen’s speech commemorating VE Day.

    With the little we were able to do (due to Covid-19) to honour our veterans, I am very disappointed that you as our national broadcasters will not honour them by broadcasting the Queen’s VE message. It is very sad and after them not being able to march on Anzac Day, you take another way to stand by them by not broadcasting the Queen’s message which is to honour them.
