To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in the Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned shows:

That we condemn any form of participation by Australia in the testing of MX Peacemaker Missiles, or any similar weapons, from Australian shores.

Your petitioners request that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should: Reject totally any form of commitment by the Australian Government to support, or participate in, the United States' MX Peacemaker missiles and ensure that Australia's commitment to a Nuclear Free Zone in the South Pacific be maintained.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
