To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate of the Parliament of Australia assembled. We, the undersigned, plead that the Senate call upon the Government to honour its obligation to protect Australia's children, by reversing its decision to remove barriers to the importation of hard-core pornography; and to restore control to customs point-of-entry, because control at point-of-sale has proven to be wholly ineffective, and injurious video viewing by children is widespread. Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will give this matter your earnest consideration.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
