To the Speaker and Honourable Members of the House of Representatives of the Australian Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned residents of Australia respectively showeth:

We the undersigned residents of Australia deplore the decision by the Federal government to amalgamate the SBS with the ABC. At present there is no guarantee that the principles of multicultural broadcasting will be maintained at any level of the ABC administration. An independent and strong SBS should be retained. And we therefore humbly pray that the amalgamation of the ABC and the SBS be opposed.
