To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the fact that we the undersigned wish to make clear to our Government, and all politicians, that we are totally opposed to another war in Iraq we desire a peaceful resolution based on dialogue without the use of weapons or military force which we see as an outdated mode of resolving conflict.

Your Petitioners therefore pray that the House, forthwith undertake all steps necessary to remove Australian Defence Service personnel from engagement or involvement in the Iraq conflict and instead engage in peaceful dialogue utilising the mechanisms and resources of the United Nations.

by Mr Ian Macfarlane (from 461 citizens)
