The Roast is a popular political satire programme on ABC2 - the only daily political satire programme in Australia.

In a political environment where a conservative government is introducing legislation that advocated jailing journalists for reporting on government matters, it is vitally important that our National Broadcaster maintains an independent voice.

It was announced this week that The Roast has been axed and will not return to ABC2 in 2015.

Please sign the petition to show the ABC that intelligent political satire that informs Australian citizens of current events is valued, and that the Arts community continues to nurture the outstanding talent of The Roast's writers, presenters & production team.
