To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned request that our democratically elected representatives to the Parliament of the Commonwealth:

1. Clearly and unequivocally condemn the continuing breaches of the human rights in Poland;

2. Demand from the Polish authorities an immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners in that country;

3. Demand that the people in Poland arrested for their political beliefs and activities are not subjected to torture, beatings, physical coercion and psychological maltreatment.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
