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)




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.

    The Queen’s message on this day, historic for all the nations of the Commonwealth, which for a time stood alone against the horror of Nazism, should be broadcast throughout the Commonwealth.

    It is un-Australian for the taxpayer funded media, the ABC & SBS to decide that we can’t see Her Majesty’s broadcast based on their own ideology.

    When there is a Citizenship Ceremony it would be nice to have a picture there of the Queen as well in public places such as Post Offices ect. I am really disappointed with how things are today.

    V.E.Day is a part of Australia’s history, our troops were involved in the fighting and part of the victory. Without that victory the progress of the war would inevitably have been very different and the impact of that felt here.

    Our Queen has chosen to mark the occasion formally; it is only proper that Australians have the opportunity to see and hear her on this occasion.

    I call on both ABC and SBS, both taxpayer funded, to see to it that the address is not only broadcast live but repeated at times which will allow all Australians to see and hear it.

    The People of Australia have the right to hear the broadcast by the Queen of Australia. After all, freedom of speech is one of the many reasons the Second World War was fought!
