To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia, respectfully showeth: that the Bill of Rights and the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Bill:

1. Offer nothing more than is already available under law,

2. deny some Human Rights and do not include others,

3. give dangerously wide powers to an unelected body, and

4. could cause far more damage than they could possibly cure.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray:

That the Senate should: completely reject the Bill of Rights and the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Bill.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
