RINJ Foundation Says No Victory Yet Against Southern Cross Austereo's War With Sydney's Woman and Children


IMPORTANT RELEASE from RINJ dot Org, Sydney Australia

Sydney Australia - January 21, 2012 -- Today RINJ.org urged campaigners throughout Australia to keep the pressure up against Southern Cross Austereo and 2DayFM in Sydney to end the sloth brought to the airwaves by Kyle Sandilands.


For years the women and children of Sydney Australia have been the targets of "Vile Kyle" Sandilands slurs, rape jokes and abuse.  Not long ago Sandiland's strapped a 14 year old child to a polygraph and interrogated her about her sex life , live on the air until she revealed some scanty details about her rape at 12 years of age, something her parents were aware of. More recently Sandilands used his broadcast microphone to attack a female journalist calling her a "fat slag" and making rude remarks about her breasts.

SCA Reaction has been Arrogance

Southern Cross Austereo's reaction to one after another petitions and thousands of emails and Facebook messages has been more or less, 'Get stuffed', it would seem. They are almost saying, "We have a big audience and we can get away with this."

Now Its The Fourth Week of January 2012

In a release read in Sydney early Jan. 21, RINJ dot Org co-founder and spokesperson Micheal O'Brien said "There is yet no victory against Southern Cross Austereo as of January 21, 2012. This foul-mouthed misogynistic broadcaster is still on the job influencing Sydney's youth and general community with things your parents, your church and your community told you not to say or do."

"There are dozens of Facebook groups," the letter continues, "and groups in other social media seeking to have Southern Cross Austereo hand Kyle Sandilands a pink slip. Many of these groups we have linked from this page: http://www.facebook.com/sack.vile.kyle "

"Our press release of January 18th claimed no victory. Our talks with the parties have yielded NOTHING as yet and there are still too many willing advertisers paying reduced rates on the Sandilands' show.

"Please boycott any advertiser you learn is promoting their brand on any Sandilands' show, original or rebroadcast in any manner. Clearly such a brand is tainted and more clearly the owners of the brand care not about the safety and respect due Australia's women and children.

"To encourage the abuse of women on live radio is to put an end to the brand that sponsored such content.  Make that reality."
