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

The humble Petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

Any proposal to establish memorials to peace, the so-called Aboriginal War and anti-war activists and other left wing causes at the Australian War Memorial at Canberra would desecrate the Memorial as a fitting and solemn monument to those who served in Australia's Armed Forces and to those who died in defence of their country.

Your Petitioners humbly pray the House of Representatives acts to prevent anything which would desecrate the nation's memorial to Australia's former servicemen and women and war dead.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
