To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth-

We call upon the Government of the Commonwealth to:

1. Reject a 'user pays' system of education and hence tuition fees in any form.

2. Abolish the overseas students charge and make a commitment to action to improve the Overseas Students Programme.

3. Publicly reaffirm its commitment to a free post-secondary education system, open to all.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
